Free Online Calendars

By

If you're tired of writing on the back of napkins and would like a bit more organization, then online calendars might be just the thing for you. Here are my picks for some of the best online calendars on the Web:
  • Google Calendar: Google's calendar service is free and functional; I especially appreciate that it's integrated with Gmail.
  • 30Boxes: Probably the one that I hear the most about, 30Boxes has a ton of cool features, such as the ability to super-customize your calendar's look and feel and place it on your website or blog.
  • Upcoming.org: "Upcoming.org is a social event calendar, completely driven by people like you. Manage your events, share events with friends and family, and syndicate your calendar to your own site."
  • Yahoo Calendar: I've been using Yahoo Calendar for a long time, in fact, it was kind of fun to browse through my old notes.
  • MyHomePoint: MyHomePoint is a family-oriented planning calendar; I was in the beta program for this one and I totally loved it. Very easy to use, and simple.
  • Eventful: Basically, Eventful is a way to share fun events with other people:m"Use Eventful's powerful search tools, alerts, RSS feeds, calendars, and groups to discover and stay up-to-date on what's going on before it happens." For example, I just found out about a concert in my area that I'd really like to go to.
  • HipCal: I'm never one to resist a cute hippo logo, so HipCal got my vote. Calendar, alerts, address book - all free.
  • Trumba: From the same good people who brought us Visio and PageMaker comes Trumba, a highly functional web calendar with such interactive features as customizable templates, the ability to share calendars with others and update those who need to be updated, and sync options with Microsoft Outlook. Very nice - simple, uncluttered, and it works; always a good thing.
