Google recently added support for Apple's native calendaring program. With a new tool, users can set it up so that Google Calendar and Apple's iCal can share information.I've been waiting for this one for a while. Being able to sync my Google Calendar with my desktop calendaring program has been on my laundry list of features. I'm not the only one. According to Google, the feature has been requested heavily by others.
In response, Google made a tool available that lets you merge the two calendars. Google writes, "We launched CalDAV support to our developers last July for feedback, and since that time a few of us whipped up a nifty setup program for iCal. This tool makes it a breeze to get iCal working with your Google account. We've released this as open source and the program is available for download at our Google Code site."
I downloaded the tool. Set up couldn't have been easier. All you need to do is sign into your Google account, and it automatically ports your Google calendar items (even if you have multiple calendars as I do) and adds the events to iCal. It will also ask if you want to merge your contacts list as well.
