9. Calendar

Chapter 9. Calendar

iCloud’s Calendar feature stores events and reminders of all sorts, pushes updates to all your devices automatically, and lets you access your calendar data in a Web browser. You can also share calendars with other iCloud users, send and receive meeting invitations, and perform quite a few other scheduling tasks.

In this chapter, I focus on the Calendar application on the iCloud Web site, but the scheduling apps for iOS and Mac OS X are similar (see the sidebar Platform-Specific Calendar Differences).

Warning

Although iCloud Calendar has worked extremely well in my testing as both a stand-alone calendar and when sharing calendars with other iCloud users, it is not designed to share data with Google Calendar or any other system. I’m aware of various complicated, partial workarounds, but in general you’ll have the best results with Calendar if all the users with whom you’re sharing calendar and reminder data are also using iCloud.
