SyncGo has a smooth desktop calendar


My son is among the millions of Americans who were recently told to stop coming in to his employer's office and start working from home every day. One of  the many things he has had to adjust to in the new WFH environment is managing his business and personal calendars with their myriad video conference calls and shared domestic responsibilities.

I told him to check out the SyncGo Desktop Calendar. It's a nifty widget that carves out a slice of a Windows to let you know what will soon need your attention and when that will happen. 

The application stays in sync with Google Calendar, Google Tasks or Apple's iCloud calendar and it works with iPhones, iPads and Android devices. If you enter an event from your desktop computer, it gets added to the one on your mobile device. It syncs ion the opposite direction as well. 

You can set the app to deliver pop-up reminders or reminders delivered by email or text messaging. Drill down and you can see events displayed by day, week, month or year in a list format or a color-coded array of sticky notes. And it offers a five-day weather forecast presented with icons (sunny, cloudy, rainy) and high and low temperatures.   

SyncGo Desktop Calendar also plays nice with your desktop wallpaper. The current month's calendar, event list and to-do list appear as an overlay so it doesn't interfere with the sunset beach wallpaper that you're so fond of. And it has a skin editor to customize fonts, colors and backgrounds.

The application sells for $14.95 and you can try it for free for 30 days. For a closer look at the SyncGo Desktop Calendar, visit the SyncGo website
