Google Calendar updated for more interactive info
Not too long ago, Google finally got around to decoupling Google Calendar from the main Android system, meaning it could be distributed through the Google 
Google Calendar updated for more interactive info
Play Store and be updated far more easily. Today, Google pushed an update to Google Calendar, which now gets a couple nice features for interacting with calendar item information, and creating events.

The main two new features are the new options allowing you to initiate calls directly from Google Calendar, and to open an address in Google Maps. This is a nice bit of integration between apps, and should make interacting with calendar events nicer. The update also brings suggestions for locations when you are creating and event, and a quick event creation option from the month view. 

As is standard for the Google Calendar found in the Play Store, it requires a device running Android 4.0.3 or higher, so Gingerbread people need not bother. If you want the update, just head over to the Google Play Store

I like the way google is going with Android. Android is truly the best mobil OS.

Nope, that's not true at all. Android is still more powerful, while Gmap on IOS is prettier. Many features in Gmap have been omitted in the IOS version.
