For those who haven’t yet tried it, Google Calendar is a truly fantastic piece of software. While it’s perfectly possible to access your Google Calendar on the move using the mobile version of the site (just go to http://mobile.google.com/calendar using your mobile device’s web browser), this doesn’t integrate Google Calendar into any built-in calendar system you might have, so you need to go online every time you want to check your appointments.
This is where GooSync comes in handy. This cool web-based application allows you to set up a sync operation which downloads entries from your Google Calendar and automatically inserts them into your phone’s or PDA’s default calendar. It’s easy to set up, and it works really well. It’s also compatible with a huge number of devices, including Palm PDAs. For a completely free alternative, try GCalSync. I’ve had more trouble with this solution but if you can get it working, it’s pretty impressive.
