Google Calendar is now available on the Play Store
But it’s already installed on my phone, I hear you all cry. Well not if you own a Samsung device. They have their own app called S Planner which still syncs with Google Calendar, but it leaves some people a little upset and hunting for alternatives. Google have published the Calendar app presumably to address this problem.

Here is how they explain this apps in the Play Store

Experience Google Calendar on devices running 4.0.3 or later.
The Calendar app displays events from each of your Google Accounts that synchronizes with your Android device. You can also:
– Create, edit, and delete events.
– View all your calendars at the same time, including non-Google calendars.
– Quickly email all event guests from a notification with a customizable message.
Known issues with HTC devices:
– Day and week views may not work on some HTC devices.
– Notes and pictures may be removed from all calendar events, but will still be available in HTC’s Notes app.
– Local unsynced events may be lost after installing Google Calendar.
– Notifications won’t make sounds unless HTC’s Calendar app is disabled.
– Touching an email invitation in a mail app opens Calendar in the browser rather than the app.

    By detaching Google apps from the OS and having them as separate entries in the Play store, Google can update them independently of ROM updates and Android releases. They have done this with GMail, Drive, Reader etc already, allowing faster updates to these “core” apps and the release of newer versions to devices running older versions of Android.
