Google Calendar is Now Available

If you track events in your life or, in the lives of other then you know the importance of a calendar and especially a calendar that supports collaboration. Well, after several months of speculation, the Google Calendar is now available for you to use.

I made sure to sign-up for my calendar, just in case the service got overloaded like others in the past. When you first login, you will notice that the interface is very clean. Its still rough around the edges, but its a good first attempt.

Below is a list of some of the features:
Calendar Sharing: Set up a calendar where your family, friends, and associates can view each others schedules.
Invitations: Send out invitations to your friends, and track their responses.
Quick Add: Just click anywhere on your calendar where you want to add an event belongs (or just click the Quick Add link), and start typing.
Gmail Integration: Gmail now recognizes events mentioned in emails, and allows you to add them to your calendar without leaving your inbox.
Search: Find the date for particular event in your calendar, or just search public calendars.
Mobile Access: Receive event reminders and notifications on your mobile phone.
