Live Calendar gets an update
I woke up this morning to find that Windows Live Calendar had had an update overnight but short of a few UI tweaks I’m finding it really difficult to find anything that’s particularly new about it. I was hoping for a plethora of new features but the only one I’ve managed to find so far is the ability to receive an email at the beginning of every day with your agenda for that day.
Unfortunately the setting is per calendar which isn’t particularly useful to me because I have 7 different calendars. I would prefer to receive a single email for all of my calendars or, even better, have the ability to choose a subset of my calendars to be included on the email.
Apart from that I really can’t see much else. If I find anything I’ll update this post; likewise if you find anything else let me know by posting a comment would you? Thanks!
Its very strange for a software team to to the trouble of rolling out an update to their service unless there is a very good reason to do so therefore given the lack of UI changes I suspect there’s quite a lot that has gone on under the covers. I wonder if we’ll be getting a Calendar API any time soon?
UPDATE: Paul Storm noticed one very very important new feature. We can now subscribe to calendars that exist out on the web. That means you can now go to icalshare, find a calendar on anything that interests you and view it at http://calendar.live.com. Data portability lives – great stuff!
This was my #2 request for Live Calendar when it first got released.
