Google has added a new "Goals" feature to its Calendar app for busy iPhone owners. The app now helps users by searching their Calendar app and scheduling the best time for completing personal goals. The app will also automatically reschedule a goal if it conflicts with a new event, and users can defer goals if they can't be completed at the scheduled time. The update comes as part of the app's tenth anniversary.

Apple Campus 2

Apple stock (NASDAQ:AAPL) opened on Monday at $96.16, and during the trading day Google's parent company Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) briefly surpassed Apple as the most valuable company in the world. After Apple's earnings report hit, prices remained under $100. Alphabet also released a strong earnings report last week. Continuing the lackluster news for Apple, the company expects iPhone sales to decline year-over-year for the first time next quarter. Investors are concerned as the iPhone represents a majority of Apple's overall revenues. Both Alphabet and Apple are valued in the low to mid-$500 billion range.

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.
