Google updates Calendar app for Android ICS

Google has released an update to make the native Calendar app to make it standalone for the devices running Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher.

Google has made its Calendar application available as a standalone app through Google Play store for the Android 4.0.3 ICS running devices. Previously, the Calendar as a standalone app was available only for select Google Experience devices such as Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S. Now the new Calendar update reaches out to more devices running Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich update or higher.

New standalone Google Calendar app allows syncing the Google's Calendar along with other calendars to offer them more features. For starters, the standalone Calendar app will let users snooze events from the notification itself, hence there's no need to open the app. Power users can set pre-defined message templates such as "Joining late" which can be sent to the event participants directly from the notifications.

The 'Day View' will now let you pinch-zoom effect for checking out several notes written for the same day. Also, frequent travelers will get to set their home time zone so as not to miss out on any virtual meetings or commitments.

Google Calendar app developers have extended the sync period and the new update app allows to be used as standalone only for those devices running Android 4.0.3 ICS or higher. You can get the new Google Calendar app update from the Google Play store.
