CalenGoo (sync with Google Calendar™) – Dominique Andr Gunia

Posted on Thursday, April 5, 2012 in Productivity

CalenGoo (sync with Google Calendar™)

Dominique Andr Gunia

Genre: Productivity

Price: $6.99

Release Date: January 16, 2009

CalenGoo gives you a fast and easy way to access and modify your Google Calendar with your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. It can also be used when you have no internet connection, using the cached data. Changes are saved and uploaded the next time you are connected.

The calendar view is similar to the web view of Google Calendar. Events are displayed using the same calendar colors that you use in your Google Calendar. It also recognizes which calendars are visible and which are hidden. So the view should match the view of your Google Calendar as much as possible.

CalenGoo also has a month view similar to that of Google Calendar. It can be zoomed and panned to quickly get an overview over the events of a month. Zooming the month is done by using the two-finger-zoom gesture that you know from Safari and the photo application. A double tap opens the tapped day.

It also works with your recurring events and even when you are offline or scroll far into the future, they are correctly displayed.

You can also use Google Calendar's feature to invite people to events and see their status (accepted, declined, maybe, no answer). They will get an invitation email with links to e.g. accept or decline the invitation.

Google Calendar has an integrated task list, called Google Tasks. Tasks with a due date are displayed on the corresponding days of the calendar. CalenGoo can do the same, it can sync this list, display your tasks in the calendar views and in a list view and it even makes your tasks available offline. You can edit and add tasks and the changes will be synced with Google Tasks.

You need a (free) Google Calendar account to use this program! If you have problems to log in with CalenGoo, please make sure that at least one event is in your calendar.

To get more information, screenshots and a tutorial, please go to

If you have any problems or suggestions, please send an email to! It is technically impossible to reply to reviews, you need to write an email or take a look at CalenGoo's support website to get help.

If you think the font is too small and hard to read, you can increase the font size of all calendar views in the settings under "Settings", "Colors etc.".

If you have problems with the speed, please contact me, then I can examine the problem and try to improve it. CalenGoo is always tested with a Google Calendar account with four years of events (several thousand events) on an old iPod Touch and an iPhone 3G. Especially on new iPods and the iPhone 3GS speed should not be an issue, but also on older devices it should be usable and not be too slow. Please contact me under

Wildland Toolkit

Peakview Software LLC

Genre: Productivity

Price: $5.99

Release Date: June 07, 2009

Wildland Toolkit is a calculator and reference guide for wildland firefighters. With it, you can predict fire behavior much like a weather prediction. Just enter the fuel, weather, and topography information and Wildland Toolkit will generate:

–RH and Dewpoint
–Fine Dead Fuel Moisture
–Probability of Ignition
–Rate of Spread
–Scorch height
–Direction of Max Spread
–Effective Windspeed

All 54 of the new fuel models are supported, with a guide to select the proper fuel model, complete with sample photos.

NOTE: There are no known calculation errors in this version. We will immediately fix any problems reported to us directly.

Wildland Toolkit is not a tutorial on wildland fire behavior, so if the terms above do not make any sense, then this application will not teach you. It is assumed that you know the same background information that is presented in an S290 or S390 class. The calculations done in the Wildland Toolkit are similar to what is done with the BEHAVE software, but you will find the user interface much easier to use.

In addition, numerous safety checklists and reference guides are included, such as watchouts, fire orders, safety zones, structure defense, etc. Photos and diagrams are provided for cloud types, hand signals, common wildland tools, and ICS org charts. An interactive practice quiz is included for NIMS IS-700 and S290.

Now a universal app, so one purchase gets you iphone, ipod touch, and iPad support.
