Google's official calendar app is finally ready for your iPad

There are also plans for a much-needed lock screen widget.


Google Calendar for iOS can be exceptionally useful if you're tired of Apple's stock scheduler, but there has always been one inescapable catch: it's only designed for iPhones... or rather, it was. Two years later, Google has updated Calendar to add iPad support. Yes, you can finally jot down appointments and set goals while taking advantage of your Apple tablet's larger canvas. That's the only major update on deck right now, but there are promises of more in the pipeline.

Most notably, Google is prepping a Today View widget that will show your upcoming schedule on both the lock screen and the notification center. That's not completely revolutionary (just ask Android users), but it should address one of the biggest requests since the iOS version arrived.
