Weekly wrap-up – 8 – Calendars

7 Jul

It was another quiet week on the interwebs, as we got to grips with the possibilities of calendars.

Google calendar seems to be the most common calendar right now, though there are plenty of other options. Many phones come with their own calendar, and @MyleeJoseph highlighted other apps such as Fantastical (iPhone) and Agenda (Android).

Syncing multiple calendars with multiple devices is one of the great benefits of mobile calendars, and the ready accessibility of a calendar in your pocket. @KiwiLibrarian also mentioned the great advantage of being able to share calendars so that others can keep track of you!

All of this interoperability and sharing often relies on the iCalendar (iCal) file format and the CalDAV standard. You don’t need to know what they are, just be glad _

Coincidentally, the original @23mobilethings mentioned the ANZ 23 Mobile Things timetable – I just wish I had thought to experiment with  “calendarising” it during the week.

A number of libraries are using calendars to manage events, notably Auckland Libraries, and City of Sydney Library Network. Sydney offers a link for an event which can be downloaded to your own calendar.
