New Google Calendar App Now Available For iPhones and Android

Last night, Google announced Goals, a feature on their Calendar app to help users make time for goals they’ve set for themselves like doing Yoga, running or learning a new language and all that jazz.

The brilliant thing about it is how flexible the app is. It helps find all the free spots in your busy schedule to do the little tasks that contribute to achieving those long term goals. After telling the Calendar app what goals you want to achieve, preferred time of day, and how often you want to do the tasks, it will look at your schedule and find a way to fit the goals into any open spaces.

If you manually add an event that clashes with one of your goals, Google Calendar will automatically reschedule for you.

If something comes up and you can’t perform the task right away, you can “Defer” it and Calendar will find a new slot for it later.

Google has also said that it will the more you use it, it will get better at scheduling these tasks for you. Machine learning, I presume. Of course, it all depends on you planning your ENTIRE life in Google Calendar, which I don’t think many people do at the moment. I’m definitely going to give it a shot and see if I can get myself to finally learn German.

Wünsch mir Glück

As far as I can recall, I’ve owned seven phones in the last nine years, four of which forcefully ended up with people who needed them more than I did. Out of the remaining three, I recall handing one down to a younger sibling and disposing another in a waste bag during spring cleaning. I haven’t given much thought to where my current phone will end up when it no longer serves its purpose. Until now.
