Google Calendar Gets Offline Mode, Docs Attachments, and iPhone and Windows Mobile Sync Posted on February 9th, 2009 by

Kyle Chambers in the Psychology department kindly writes in with news that Google Calendar recently added a couple of valuable features–offline access and Google Document attachments.

Offline Calendar

From Google’s FAQ about offline calendar:

Calendar keeps you on time, even when you’re not online. Offline Calendar allows you to access your events through your browser without requiring Internet access. It’s perfect for flaky connections or for when you’re in between meetings and have no idea where you’re supposed to be next.

To get started using offline calendar, simply click on the red “Offline Beta” link in the upper right corner of your Google Calendar. The behind-the-scenes magic is accomplished by Google Gears.

Attaching Google Documents

Attaching a Google Document to an event is as easy as clicking a link on the event details page and selecting the Google Document you would like to attach.

iPhone and Windows Mobile Sync

Also of note, Google added calendar and contact sync support for the iPhone and Windows Mobile today.
