Day Planner with Google Calender

Google Calender 1

Google Calendar has been popular ever since the first Android devices became available. Users had the ability to plan out their day, create reminders, set birthday reminders, and to just keep track of your day as you go.

However, many who use the feature have realized that life doesn’t always allow you to get to things you need to or really want to. Something like a flat tire on the way to a meeting or friends unexpectedly coming over when you have exercise planned could have a bit of an adverse effect on your goals.

The latest version of the Google Calendar lets you take back the control as the app how has the option to change things around when the unforeseen events happen. The app will actually plan your day for you, allowing you to get to everything needed. This means you no longer need to move things around, try to plan out your day, especially when you don’t have time. Users will be able to delay events no matter what happens. The app will automatically adjust your day and allow you to fit in as much as possibly still. If you missed the meeting completely, the app will remove it and place other things in its place, which also goes for cancellations.

With these features and those that have been offered with the app from the beginning, you will find yourself getting a lot more done as the app with move things up. For example, if a meeting get canceled and you have an hour open, the app will fill in that time with another small event that you had to remember, such as sending an important email or making a doctor’s appointment.

Users will find a lot more can get done with simple reminders that suggest things when you do not consider them. Taking time for a quick workout or requesting that the app moves it up for you has never been easier. The app lets you set your schedule as to how often you would like to work out and how long. The app finds the time for these goals, which will be suggested, but can be changed as well.

We’ve all found that creating a group is relatively easy with Facebook, Whatsapp, and many other chat options and social media applications. Then again, we’ve all experienced how difficult it can be to keep to the topic, or how annoying it is to go and search information, copy it, and then get it to the group chat when they have all started talking about something else. Even when the conversation stays on topic and everyone starts to include links, pictures, and much more, but when you try to return at a later stage to access that info, it’s a whole new mission to scroll through.


Spaces is an app with sharing, and accessing the information you want easy and sharing it within seconds. Finding related pictures, videos, websites, and anything else will take seconds as the app comes with Chrome, YouTube, and Google Search, built in.

The app has been designed to provide users with all the info they need while in messenger, email, or any social media app. We’ve all experienced the difficulty of finding an address, place, video, or picture to quickly send while in chat. Usually, this results in going to another app and trying to copy the information with those dots they highlight the info with, which doesn’t always make things easier.


Gboard will include a G logo on your keyboard and only interfere with your typing when pressed on. However, once you press on it, a new world of information will be available. Users can do a Google search right from the keyboard without exiting any app you are currently using.

Users will be able to enter any information just as you would with a Google search. The information will appear in a smaller window, which includes the most related posts to your search. Users will be able to search for songs, movies, videos and much more, which would take the recipient directly to the page you’ve selected, the location on Maps, or any other form or link you might have selected.

The app doesn’t require the recipient to have the app as well. Gboard simply makes it easier to do the searches and tasks easier and faster while busy with anything where your keyboard is needed. The app has been developed but has not been added to the iStore. However, we are sure the app will be added soon for all users to take full advantage of and enjoy sending any type of link and info within seconds.
