Google Calendar for Android adds color highlighting, date and time picker tweaks

Zach Honig

Admittedly, this one's a bit of a snooze, but if you find yourself adding events through Google's Calendar app on Android, you might give a hoot about these tweaks. First up is a new color tool, which lets you highlight specific appointments and change the color of your entire calendar. Judging by the screenshot above, there are two dozen hues up for grabs, so you're bound to find one that's to your liking. There's also a new date and time picker -- functionality hasn't changed much, but it looks different now. More rounded and playful, you might say. There's an analog clock, dials and all, for picking the time, and a fairly basic date listing for choosing the date. You can also select the correct time zone by typing in a city name -- the app takes care of the rest. You'll need Android 4.1 or higher to take advantage, so if you haven't yet pulled the trigger on that new handset purchase, you might want to set a date. Using the boring previous-gen Calendar app, of course.
