Using Google Calendar on Android

Now that we've gone over the web version of Google Calendar, let's discuss how it works on your phone. The Android version of Google Calendar comes preinstalled on most Android phones. In versions 2.1 and 2.2, it even comes with a widget to display one day at a time. HTC Sense phones have a very slick widget that looks different from the standard Android, but this only changes the appearance; the data still comes from Google Calendar.

Like Gmail, you can either use the native Calendar app, or you can access Google Calendar from your mobile web browser by going to, as shown in Figure 7-4. The mobile version of Google Calendar is rather limited. Your view is restricted to either day or month, and your only settings choices are which calendars to display. You can, however, easily navigate to the mobile Tasks list or other mobile versions of tools. In a pinch, you can also force Google Calendar to display the nonmobile version by clicking the Desktop link at the bottom of the page.
