It seems that I am finding Google Calendar (currently being referred to as gCal by technopiles) an alternative to Outlook lately. Even though I wish that Google would finish up implementing some kind of syncing between gCal and Outlook already. But luckily, there’s a “hack” that helps out in that side of things. I guess its enough to hold me down for a bit till something from Google comes about.
Anyways, one of the other things that I was hoping gCal to have was a simple to-do list(s), aka. Tasks for those Outlook-oriented people. As I was Blingo-ing for an integration of some kind of to-do list with gCal, this article was on top of the list by Matias Pelenur. It does the job using JS, GM and FireFox. Although at the moment, it only saves your to-do list per GM install; locally that is, per computer. But there are a couple of workarounds that can be done to make it store to services such as Amazon S3, gCal itself, etc. as noted by Matias.
Supposedly, Google mentioned the availability of an “Account Authentication Proxy for Web Applications” feature that will be intergrated with their gCal API in late April… this past April in fact. I guess we’ll just have to wait for an update on Matias about that, or from Google regarding their own home-blended to-do list integration with gCal.
