Google Calendar 5.0 ready for Android 4.0.3 + devices – you can download the APK here

Google Calendar 5.0 was updated today and it will be available for all 4.0.3+ devices. It may have not reached your device yet, so you will be able to try the APK link below to manually update the app if you so desire.

The app is essentially a very smart schedule layout with different supporting periods for phones and tablets. Phones will support daily and up to 5 day views whereas tablets will support monthly and weekly views as well. The week view is seen on phones only on landscape mode.

 

What Google Calendar does is integrate events from Gmail and it also adds reminders on the calendar and appointments by putting smart imagery where needed. It can even include a map with a location in some cases.

The app has a widget that mimics the schedule view inside the map by offering a simple and easy-to-see lineup of all future plans in a given period of time. The widget itself can be resized to fit around other home screen elements.

You can download the APK signed by Google HERE and it will upgrade your existing Calendar. The cryptographic signature assures you that the download link is safe for your device. In case you don’t want to wait for the automatic update, this will be an easy and certain way of upgrading your app.

Smartband Talk SWR30 gets new companion app plus four brand new extensions on Google Playstore

If you were looking for some new Sony smartband apps, you’re in luck as the Google Playstore has just been flooded with a few free applications. Smartband Talk SWR30 got a new activity tracker today and it appears to come equipped with a small e-ink display.

The smartband is a revamp of last year’s SWR10 version; it will hit stores next month, on November 10th, and it can already be pre-ordered from Amazon, among other retailer sites. The device will be available in white and black and has a cost of $169.99 with free shipping in the US.

The store just got a new app and four extensions today, all destined for the smartband, and in order to use them, you will have to install them and look for the extensions inside the official companion app in order to fully use the app itself. The core companion app is named Smartband Talk SWR30 and it will allow you to connect the tracker to your smartphone and determine logged and unlogged activities. The app is optimized for Xperia devices, where you’ll have plenty to pick from, but it is not exclusive.
