Finally, the official Google Calendar app has arrived on the iOS App Store.

The native iOS app streamlines what was previously available only as a mobile website on the iPhone. Various third-party apps made it possible to view and interact with Google Calendar, but the official Calendar app found on Android devices was not available for Apple users until now. Google Calendar meshes with Exchange calendars as well, and plays nice with Gmail events. This means emailed event details can automatically be converted into calendar events.

The iPhone makes it possible to independently maintain several different calendars for separate event categories, such as work or home. Calendars can easily be added or deleted to accommodate individual needs and help stay organized each day, week or month. Every time a new event or appointment is added to the calendar, iOS 7 will provide the option to assign this event to a particular calendar.

How can I see Calendar list view in iOS 7?

Apple has completely redesigned the stock Calendar app in iOS 7. For those used to the previous version, the layout will not look familiar. Each day displays scheduled events in a block of time, so to see all events scrolling is required. So how can a compact list of scheduled events be viewed?

Bring up a compact list of all appointments by tapping the magnifying glass icon at the top right of the screen. This will list everything in the schedule starting with today's date. To exit list view and return to the Calendar select Done in the upper right corner.
