You could continue to add events to your Google Calendar the old fashioned way, or you could use this super cool (and fun!) method of SMSing things to your GCal.


The process is so easy a caveman could do it, so follow along and you'll be one step closer to speaking (almost) directly to your calendar:

  • Add GEvent (48368) to your contacts, name it “Magic Calendar”
  • Click and hold the Search button to bring up Google Voice Search and say, “Text to Magic Calendar, Pick up kids 2pm at the Cliffs in Valhalla, New York” (or, you know, whatever event you want to schedule)
  • Wait a bit… you should receive a confirmation text and it should show up on your Google Calendar
  • Bring up event in your favorite calendar app or widget… click on the link for the location
  • Click on bubble to check out Places and to get turn-by-turn directions from your free Google Navigation
  • Extra credit – do the step #2 voice search hands-free using VLingo InCar

And that's it. The next time you need to add something to your Google Calendar it's little more than a button press away.


Thanks, JoAnn!
