Access Your Google Calendar Even When Offline
The Google Calendar is an extremely useful integrated application for Gmail users. This application helps users to manage time as well as events conveniently. The application is absolutely free and provides various other useful features like event alert, calendar sharing etc. The only disadvantage of this application was that it could be used only when you are online.
Looking into the growing competition, Google has solved this drawback and has made it accessible when not connected online. This application can be accessed even in offline mode by using the Google Calendar Offline Beta. This new service provides users the benefits of using their calendars on the go. You can view your planned events and schedules even when you are offline, but you will not be able to edit them.
Other than the above mentioned utility, users can use another utility known as the GMinder. This application too gives quick and easy access to your Google Calendar even when you are offline.
GMinder is an application that helps users to access and download their scheduled events and calendar even with the browser closed. The application’s setup is extremely straightforward and simple. You just have to provide your username and password and then follow it by clicking on the “Download” tab. After being successfully downloaded, it will display a list of upcoming events mentioned in the calendar.
With the help of the GMinder, you can select any event of your choice and make the necessary changes. You can even add or delete events. There is also an option of alerting you about the events to come. The GMinder is compatible only with the Windows Operating System. Other than this it also requires .NET framework from Microsoft. Windows vista and Windows 7 have this framework inbuilt, but users of older versions of Windows need to install it.
Nice post. I use Google Calendar Client to import events from Google Calendar, use them in offline mode, save and export them into other applications.
