Google Calendar is an impressive free online calendar that let's you easily keep track of your events and share the calendar with your family, friends, or co-workers.

In addition to the calendar, you can use Google Calendar to set up reminders and send invitations as well as keep track of RSVPs.

Sharing With Google Calendar

One of the main advantages of using the Google Calendar is that it's just so easy to share. I personally use Google Calendar and I share it with my husband where we keep track of meetings, appointments, birthdays, and whatever else we need to put on there.

Google Calendar can easily be accessed and updated by whoever has permission to access your calendar. You can have multiple calendars and you can share none, some, or all of them. This is really helpful if you would like to have a personal calendar but also a work or family calendar that's shared with others.

Google Calendar Is Easy to Use

You don't need a manual to get started with Google Calendar, just click on a day and start typing to add events.

You can view the calendar by day, week, or month depending on your preference and all views are easy to use. There's also a way to view your calendars by 4 days and as an agenda.

More With Google Calendar

The other main advantage of Google Calendar is that since it's web-based you can access it from anywhere. You can even view a read-only version of your calendar if you don't have Internet access.

Google Calendar is also available on the iPhone, Android phones, and the Blackberry.

You can also use Google Calendar to send invitations and then collect RSVPs via the calendar or from your email.

I love that I can set up reminders for events and then have them text messaged or emailed to me.

It's easy to sync Google Calendar with Microsoft Outlook, Apple iCal, and Mozilla Sunbird.

What I Think About Google Calendar

I love Google Calendar. When it comes down to it, this is the online calendar I chose to use. It may not be the flashiest, or have the most bells and whistles, but it's the easiest to use and most reliable online calendar that I've come across.
