Google's new calendar design leaks, showing off the future of Android
A new version of Google Calendar has leaked, revealing a cleaner design that shows off the direction that Google could be taking with Android in the future. If the leak is legit, the new Google Calendar uses less color and has fewer icons than the current version. Apparently, there is some impressive animation and other effects. We could see this new version of the Google System app released during Google I/O in June.

Besides the new look, Google Calendar adds a Daily Agenda feature, which allows you to email the current day's schedule. Important parts of each day's appointments will be color-coded, and the update adds birthday reminders for the calendar view. Another section will list upcoming birthdays of your Google+ friends. Circles will now highlight each day of the month, which you can see for yourself in the screenshot found at the bottom of this page.

It is unknown whether this is the final version of the update, but those who have used it have been impressed.

Looks nice, a bit like the iOS 7 calender, but not too much. Even looks a bit nicer imo, I prefer the blue colors.

Yeah the current google calendar app sucks in looks. Functionality is also not that great. Hope this one fares better. GAPPS rock.

It does seems to have a Sense UI impression similar on the M8 themes

What in any way does that have to do with his comment or the article?

Looks great if you are an 11 yr old girl who loves unicorns. Too colorful and bright...does not look professional at all.

and millions of people out there using iOS 7 are all 11 yr old girls who love unicorns? Come one, man. One size doesn't fit all, and people don't care that much about the "professional" UI.

I use aCalender because in monthly view it shows the info for each day, rather than just have a color bar that I have to click to get the info, like it does with Google Calendar...

Looks similar to the white background version of WP.
