Screenshots show Google’s upcoming Calendar iPhone app w/ Gmail, Photos, & Maps integration

New Google Calendar iOS

It appears that Google could soon release its promised redesigned Calendar app for iPhone after first making the announcement and releasing the app for Android last November. The Next Web this morning shared a handful of leaked screenshots that provide a first look at Google Calendar for iOS, including info cards that indicate Gmail, Photos and Maps integration will be key features of the app.

The screenshots show that the app will have side-by-side calendars for both a monthly overview and closer day-to-day agenda of tasks and important dates. Reservations for flights, restaurants and more are automatically added from your Gmail inbox, alongside photos and maps for viewing your upcoming events at a glance. Built-in notification settings are included.

The app is based on Google’s new Material Design language found across its other iPhone apps like Inbox and Google Maps. The report does not offer up any further details about the app, but we should find out soon when it hits the App Store. This will mark the first time that Google offers a standalone Calendar app for iPhone.
