What's New in Version 3.0.0
This is the third big update of GoCal for iPhone.
It includes complete redesign of application, as well as some amazing new features for your use.
Most noteworthy changes:
- New Month, Day, Week and List views.
- Fullscreen Day, Week, Month (Pinch to enable).
- Calendars Sharing.
- Very fast synchronization.
- Ability to use only built-in calendar.
- New way to preview events.
- And a lot more miscellaneous ones...
- Improved auto-sync.
- Fixed reminders sync.
- Fixed crashes upon adding/editing events.
No Push Notifications or notification center integration
So when I say "alert" for the reminder on an event, this app does not actually do it. It's not listed in the notification center settings and there are no push capabilities. The only time it has alerted me was when I made a new event through the app and had the app open for testing.
Worthless if it can't send a push message without me having to go in and change the alert to say SMS specifically, which is not the default setting on google calendars as you know.
Overall have not been impressed with the UI and layout - as another reviewer said, the Day view is worthless. You can't read your events.
I have issues with this calendar and should gave researched it before I bought it. The DAY setting doesn't allow me to see my schedule easily: appointments overlap, hiding them. It takes too long for new screens to load and I'm currently in DAY mode and can't figure out how to get back to WEEK. *The main menu has disappeared. When I add a new appointment but want to change the date, it doesn't show me the day of the week, only the date.
I may continue to search for a better calendar app and learn a valuable lesson about clicking "buy" before researching.
Simple beautiful- and works quick
First off, I was surprised to see so many reviews of it being slow as to be honest I love how it dosent seem to take much time to load, I can easily create events with reminders, and it even has a week view(not shown in pics) that appears in landscape mode.
About the only downside, I have a little trouble telling the difference between my GF's schedule and my schedule at times.
Improve that one little aspect and I believe the app is great.
