Calendar-Thumb

Geek.com is back with another round of leaked screenshots. We shared the reported experimental Gmail images last week, which showed a radically different interface from the one we've grown accustomed to. Those images, and these new ones, allegedly come from early test builds, so whether they reveal much about Google's future plans remains to be seen. Nevertheless, here are the new calendar screens, the last of which shows the name "Timely" at the top, apparently Google's internal name for the Calendar app that ships pre-installed on devices.

Calendar3

Calendar1 Calendar2

As we can see from the screens, this experimental build does away with grids and a grey color palette, replacing them with plenty of circles, flatness, and lots of white. Geek.com reports that the app switches from month-to-month using a parallax scrolling effect, tossing up a header image akin to those provided on the Chromecast home screen.

Functionality-wise, the app contains a new daily agenda feature, where instead of having a list of your individual appointments sent to your inbox, you can get a presentation of the day's events. The app will also pull birthdays straight from Google+.

The experimental build is apparently fully functional and could be ready for release, but there's no telling when, or if, Google will pull the trigger on this new design. That said, Google I/O would seem like the best time to do so.

  • Joery

    That's one ugly looking interface.
    It's like Google is throwing their own holo design guidelines in the trashbin.

    • Mario E Hdez

      Maybe it has to do with Project Hera? I must admit I wasn't too fond of the direction either.

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

        Project Hera is not about UI at all.

          • Jovie Brett Bardoles

            This is what Google makes me to believe on leaked screenshots...
            I just noticed that 'round dotted' overflow icon from the new Google Now that have been introduced on Kitkat, which all means on this screenshot ;) Anyway thanks for the link man.

          • Matthew Merrick

            now this i can believe

          • morteum

            What is this? A mockup or a supposed leak? I like the look of this better than the previous gmail leak.

          • Jovie Brett Bardoles

            Just saw it all over here and it is a supposed leak on a somewhat new makeover of GMail.
            http://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/22lj6i/project_hera_is_real_but_ap_leak_is_not_heres_a/
            Actually this screenshot is not related on this topic posted above by AP, just wanted to show how does it compared to a truly android based UI guidelines.

          • morteum

            Oh, nice. I definitely prefer this look. It also makes sense based on the previous update to Google Keep.

          • Jovie Brett Bardoles

            Yeah right :-)

          • vyktorsouza

            looks nice, I like it

          • http://google.com/+derekross Derek Ross

            A swing and a miss. The Reddit OP is stating that Hera is about UI changes and shows Gmail with a red nav bar. Even if a Gmail update with a red nav bar is coming, that has nothing to do with what Hera does. It's not about UI elements as @rdr0b11:disqus originally said. I was just making a joke...that was apparently missed.

          • Jovie Brett Bardoles

            Ikr, honestly I felt a lil dumb when I read over the post and comments on reddit, it has nothing meant to be part of Project Hera :| But anyway that leaked GMail app is the thing that I honestly liked it. Just sayin' ;)

          • SVem26

            Thank God.. that's a relief..

          • Marcell Lévai

            To be honest I think this is just a themed GMail app on some custom ROM.

          • PiLoT

            Considering this gmail leak and the above cal leak and that weird chrome multitask thing all have same title bars, i think this is a gapps redesign

          • Jovie Brett Bardoles

            I'm starting to think the same thing...

        • Mario E Hdez

          What I meant was maybe it was part of the hera multitasking addition as opposed to strictly a singular application change

      • http://mrmcpowned.com mrmcpowned

        Project Hera is about bridging all three of Google's technologies into one seamless mobile system.

    • darkdude1

      I like the fact Android is open to different UI designs, as there are some apps that really do hit the mark, sadly, this particular design doesn't.

    • sdcoiner76

      Looks way better than the Google Cal interface we have now. I will reserve judgement till I actually see it in action. Edit: Though I do agree that these do not line up with Holo and I personally think that these redesigns might not actually be coming out of Google.

    • vyktorsouza

      you didn't want them to stick with holo for the rest of our lives, did you? lord, let's comeback to eclair then

      • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

        #HOLOYOLO is the way Android should be, Apple kept their iOS UI the same for 6 years straight and nobody complained much

        • hp420

          Because iOS users are sheeple. We actually have independent brains in the android community. We don't drink the iOS koolaid.

        • http://www.vrdwellersblog.com/ Miles Reiter

          I dunno if that's accurate. Tons of people complained, it even made fairly regular headlines for the rumor mill stuff. One of the biggest questions after a few years was "When the hell is Apple going to switch things up a bit?".

      • Bojan Tomic

        I don't mind them changing holo for better, but this looks baaad imo... :/

    • John

      The design language for an OS can't just stay the same forever. If that was the case holo would've never existed. Plus I think they are Google is moving Android into colours (e.g. Keep's latest update) instead of just having off-white everywhere.

      • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

        I'd rather have dark black everywhere, I completely dislike the move from OEMs to whiter interfaces and backgrounds in their latest updates - Sony, LG, HTC are already suffering from that

        Guess if Android moves to white colro scheme with the next release (with all these colors across Google Apps these days) Imma go the Custom ROM path and put a nice black theme

        • hp420

          You don't need custom roms for themes. I've had a theme on my aosp rom for months with xposed. Honestly, custom roms are pretty much gasping for air, bleeding out in a ditch somewhere while xposed runs circles around them. They offer very little you can't get with xposed anymore.

          • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

            Xposed isn't friends with ART, that is a big minus

          • hp420

            I thought that was fixed months ago?

          • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

            No, it wasn't. And maybe never will.

          • Jovie Brett Bardoles

            Nope they still haven't fixed it and thinking that they might end up all broke with ART. More and more stuff are breaking every Android version is released, what more when it comes to a new Android version where ART is set to be the default runtime, Xposed will be killed unless they'll include the other option of compiler.

        • Doctor Nebula

          Not really all into darkness, one nice feature would be the theme changes depending on day/night.

          • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

            Or a simple toggle in the settings menu

      • John

        Not to mention this could be Google's attempt to merge Project Kennedy with Android together, as already seen in Kitkat and also Matia Duarte's comment on how Android design is 1/3 (or I guess now 1/2) towards consistency.

    • morteum

      I hated the first Gmail leak, but compared to the current Google Cal app this is infinitely better.

  • anmolm97

    I don't like where this is headed..... :/

  • feide

    That menu button at the top left is clearly more iOS than Android

  • Jiggy

    I really liked the grids. And completely hate the rounded date buttons. I really hope the Gmail and Calendar app leaks never see the light of the day. :(

  • Phil Oakley

    Some of this is great, will some of this is obviously being actively tested. Either way, both Gmail and Calendar are vastly out of date with the designs Google has been pushing out recently.

    Eagerly anticipating Google I/O.

    • Seth Merritt

      Hoping for a People update too.

      • Phil Oakley

        I think the whole Gmail Contacts (which is what People is on Android) will be replaced by Google+ Circles, with advanced functionality for privacy and stuff (like people can't see your 'Contacts circle etc).

        • Matthew Merrick

          nope, never. people have contacts that don't have google accounts.

          • Phil Oakley

            I've said this before, but I would expect Circles would be updated so in a 'Contacts' circle you could add Contacts who don't have Google Accounts. And then you can add them to other Circles too, like Family, Friends etc, except no one else can see them, only you.

  • Dlongb13

    Why are all this screen shots from an HTC M8?! Seems pretty odd to me.

    • Phil Oakley

      Because that's the phone that whoever is supplying the screenshots to Russell Holly has?

      • Dlongb13

        Maybe I am wrong, but if this was new, unreleased Google Apps, don't you think they would be testing them on stock android phones, like the Nexus 5? Seems like most Google App leaks in the past have been on Nexus devices. Unless the APK was leaked, then that's a whole 'nother story.

    • heat361

      It seems to me Russell obtained the apk and side loaded onto the m8 and was testing it.

      " I didn’t get anything close to a launch date for these features, and remember this wasn’t a finished product I was using, but it seems likely that this is one of the many things Google will be showing off during their annual developer conference."

  • Vivek

    It says timely in the last screenshot

    • makapav

      Excellent catch. Let's hope there is something more exciting in the alarm notifications. Integrated advanced snooze capability is long overdue. It's amazing how Microsoft got reminders right on Windows Mobile 8 years ago but Google's still got their undies in a twist.

    • vyktorsouza

      "the last of which shows the name "Timely" at the top, Google's internal name for Google Calendar."

    • http://bertelking.com/ Bertel King, Jr.

      Geek.com left a note about this. I've added it to the post.

      • Vivek

        Great

  • Bojan Tomic

    I feel like these are all HTC's redesigns of Google apps. Every leaked photo is from M8... And they look like Blinkfeed..

    • vyktorsouza

      afaik OEMs doesn't redesign gapps, they make their own

      • Carol Bernard

        Remember people didn't want to believe that the Google Note Launcher looked how it did. Or ICS.

      • stephanie767

        my Aunty Eva recently got a nice 12 month
        old Audi allroad Wagon by working off of a macbook... look at this site C­a­s­h­F­i­g­.­ℂ­o­m

        • Tom

          ok.

        • Tom

          ok.

    • Tony Pettinato

      All these leaks are coming from Russell Holly at geek.com, who started posting these when he got an m8...

      • hp420

        Is it that hard to believe he may be testing the GPE rom?

        • Matthew Merrick

          no he's not. if he was the software buttons and notification bar would be different. this is clearly the Sense version

          • Ryuuie

            Except he's the entire reason we knew of the GPE devices in the first place. I'd say he's got more credibility than "this is just the Sense version".

            Everyone makes mistakes sometimes, but considering his track record, he could really be right.

            Remember people didn't want to believe that the Google Note Launcher looked how it did. Or ICS.

            Who's to say these apps wouldn't install on Sense?

        • Tony Pettinato

          Do you even know what that stands for? He's clearly using Sense 6.

        • http://googleplus.VoluntaryMan.com/ William Thieme

          Yes. Look at the status bar icons.

    • O’s Fan91

      I hope you're correct, the new Gmail (leak) and this Calender just makes me feel like I'll be using IOS.

    • The Seventh Son

      THIS. Every single one of these leaks is on HTC Sense and none of them seem to follow Google's design guidelines. I believe they're HTC's own apps, not Google's redesign.

    • Vardan Nazaretyan

      They are on the M8 because Geek.com's Russell Holly is currently testing out the M8, and when he gets a leaked app it is obvious that he is going to test it out on his current daily driver, which is the M8. :)

    Not just another hera experiment?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

      Hera is not about UI. At all.

      • sdcoiner76

        Those mockups are gonna haunt any Hera talk on here forever LOL. I think there was a bunch of read headline, look at pics, and comment on that story aka TL;DR

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

          Sadly, that is the truth. I'm going to be using this comment more than I'd care to over the coming months, I think.

      • https://plus.google.com/u/0/108482452903817442299/posts Andrew Bone

        Yeah I get that, but they still made some mockups, written in HTML5, those mockups leaked no? Could this be another HTML5 mockup?

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

          No, this is confusing two things which are not directly related. Remove any sense of "design" having to do with Hera from your mind. We published mockups, this is a leak of an app Google is actively testing.

          • https://plus.google.com/u/0/108482452903817442299/posts Andrew Bone

            OK, thanks for clearing that up

  • blakjakdavy

    Last screenshot - Timely is becoming part of google calendar after the acquisition?

    • http://bertelking.com/ Bertel King, Jr.

      Geek.com made a note about this, so I've added it to the post.

  • codemonkey85

    Not sure I totally understand the difference between the daily agenda feature in these screenshots vs. what we have now on the Google Calendar web site. I thought the only change was being able to toggle this feature from the Android app?

    Speaking of added functionality, here's hoping for drag and drop reordering of events, and more robust voice actions for managing your calendar!

  • Grahaman27

    See, this is why we can't have nice things. Google, I like holo.

  • vyktorsouza

    DAMNNN, I have no words

  • http://www.anivision.org/ Christopher Bailey (Xcom923)

    More stuff to be added to the awesomeness that will be Google I/O

  • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

    Why do these leaks show HTC's UI with softkeys and statusbar? This is certainly not AOSP, and why the hell would Google test its apps on non-Nexus devices?

    • codemonkey85

      Why doesn't it make sense to test app updates for compatibility with different builds of Android? I'm sure someone else is testing on Nexus devices.

      • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

        Because that is why we have skins, OEMs adopt the apps in accordance to their UI styles, and if it is Google that is doing the testing - then it is impossible that these leaks show HTC UI, because none of the OEMs would have the code at this moment, especially if this is the experimental stuff for next major Android release

        • http://google.com/+derekross Derek Ross

          That makes no sense. You want to test your app on as many devices as possible prior to launch. Gmail, Calendar, etc are on every damn Android device out there. When an update hits the Play Store, the app has to work on every device.

          • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

            We don't even know for sure if this update will be available to pre-%Android_version% devices.

            AFAIK, 2.3 and earlier didn't get Gmail updates that were targeted at 4.x UI

          • http://google.com/+derekross Derek Ross

            And only 4.1.x got Google Now. At least we know that the new Gmail works on Android 4.4.2 and not some upcoming unannounced version.

        • codemonkey85

          None of this changes the fact that Google has to make sure their apps work across different builds (or "skins") of Android. Google Calendar is in the Play Store, and boasts compatibility across the Android landscape. And why can't a Google employee be testing this app? It doesn't have to be HTC... Google is quite capable of acquiring different Android phones.

    • http://www.anivision.org/ Christopher Bailey (Xcom923)

      clearly you don't understand how testing works. you WANT to test things on multiple builds of different devices otherwise you leave your OS wide open to device specific bugs and other issues

    • http://google.com/+derekross Derek Ross

      Because the guy testing the app is using an HTC M8?

  • Ahmad Nadeem

    They are finally doing something by incorporating Timely into android, really loved that clock app

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Apparently, it's the wrong Timely.

      • Ahmad Nadeem

        Perhaps they unified the "Timely" and the calender app?

  • Dinofan01

    So this move to a new UI is real? Fuck.... why Google? I do enjoy the move to more colors but it's kind of ugly. Not to mention the fact it's already been hard enough to get devs onto the holo bandwagon. Now you change it even more? Another two years of mismateched uis! yay....

    • http://www.anivision.org/ Christopher Bailey (Xcom923)

      I think if people are really use holo then the update would be made on the device system level this should help things a bit. BUT the reason behind the UI change has to do with smaller wearable devices. Google wants a single UI that could scale to each Android interface

      • Dinofan01

        I didn't consider that. Actually I'm more accepting of this ui "revolution" if it means android, chrome, and wear all look similar. Some cohesion between platforms would be nice.

        • http://www.anivision.org/ Christopher Bailey (Xcom923)

          That is the plan, Here's hoping that it'll be a smooth transition

        • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

          And ChromeOS too!

    • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

      Well, at least Holo is not as hideous as pre-4.0 era apps

    • Guest123

      Google's design team seems to have no long term vision, or they really like to beta test anything and everything, thus the constant changes to web apps, chrome apps, android apps, etc. . .

      The good new is, if you don't like it. . . wait a few weeks and it'll be changed.

      • Phil Oakley

        They experiment. A lot. And that's good. It's how we get cool new things and interesting new UI patterns, like their pull to refresh implementation and the navigation drawer.

    • cryosx

      I don't want to even imagine what you find "pretty" or "aesthetically pleasing"

  • Mandark

    Here you go. Case debunked. You can go to sleep now. http://www.timelyapp(dot),com/

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Yet another Timely? Not sure how it's relevant though.

      • Mandark

        The link I posted is the link to the "so called" leaked gmail app. It's actually a real app called Timely. The leaks are fake.

  • nerd

    Timely might be a reference to the app of the same name that they just bought....

  • Jovie Brett Bardoles

    I really hope this wasn't came from Google, I just don't like the UI makeover of the Gapps :/ It ain't lookin stockish Android anymore!

    • Johannes

      It looks like iOS7 for the poor... it would just be sad to see this in any of the next android releases

      • Jovie Brett Bardoles

        Ikr. I was hoping that these leaks are meant to HTC's new UI makeover on Gapps. Oh god, I'm scared.

  • Danish Prakash

    don't know about others, but i kinda like it.

    • vyktorsouza

      I love it, but there's no translucent statusbar, which is quite weird because we all know the next version will implement them in the whole system

      • Jovie Brett Bardoles

        Those screenshots came from an HTC device therefore translucent status bar isn't available. Only on Nexus 5 variants.

        • Aooga

          All 4.4 devices have that capability.

          • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

            Tell that to Nexus 10

          • Aooga

            Well using xposed it is.

          • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

            Xposed =/= having a capavility

          • Aooga

            Not sure what to tell you. All 4.4 devices have the capability to use translucent status bars. If google disabled it on the N10, thats their problem, but the code for it is still there.

          • Simon Belmont

            It's disabled on the Nexus 10 because the GPU on the SoC for that tablet can't handle hardware overlays very well. The performance takes a hit. So, Google disabled translucency on it. It's a shame, but that's how it goes.

            It's funny because my 2010 B&N Nook Color running Android 4.4 has translucency and it runs great. So does my Galaxy Nexus.

        • Aooga

          All 4.4 devices have that capability.

        • Aooga

          All 4.4 devices have that capability.

          where have you been?

          • blueandwhite

            Sorry, but you're straight up wrong. If you've ever spoken with or seen a post from a Google developer advocate, the way that apps like PushBullet are implementing the translucent statusbar is not the intended use case.

            Translucent statusbars, as part of the immersive mode that shipped with Kitkat, are intended for very specific use cases like the home/lock screen to showcase the wallpaper. Not to make the actionbar pointlessly bigger.

          • vyktorsouza

            I never said that, if you don't like it, cry to google, not me, I didn't redesign the gapps

      • Aooga

        How do we know that? IMO, it looks really weird when there is a huge block of color at the top of the screen.

      • turdbogls

        you dont understand translucency...it was never meant to act like iOS7, bringing color all the way up just for the heck of it isn't how google imagined it would be implemented. I personally do like it, but its real purpose is to expose media content (video, pictures, album art ect) without loosing the status bar functionality.

        • vyktorsouza

          yes, I do know that, but you might wanna check the Hera thingy and comeback later, I just accepted it, if google wants to do it, whatever, they know what's best, I won't be in the comments crying over it

  • Aooga

    So this is the new design for 5.0. Seems nice!

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Let's not get ahead of ourselves.

      • Aooga

        I like to speculate about things. And combined with the previous gmail screenshot, either this is a really elaborate fake, or new the new design language. Another option is google could just scrap this all together...they seem to be doing that a bit.

        EDIT: the last screenshot that says timely still has the old design.

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          I'm referring specifically to 5.0. For all we know, this could arrive without any OS updates. And 5.0 could be 4.5. Or 5.0 could be 4.6, or 4.9.

            Oh okay. I just put 5.0 because I really want the 4.X line to be over with. But you're right, google might make it 4.5

      • http://google.com/+derekross Derek Ross

        Exactly. I've always preferred Android 4.69 myself.

    the drawer indicator looks horrible! I really, really hope these are no versions made by the android team

    This is NOT a revolution of the Android UI design. This is a clear iOS 7 design.

    I am not ready to suddenly praise Google for copying Apple, and I feel disgusted by anyone who does.

    Even though the Holo UI is still very new and modern, Google could have revolutionized it in a different way rather than this ugly UI.

    • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

      Maybe the iOS7-esque UI is the result of Google wanting users to have the same user experience across platforms should they migrate from iOS to Android and vice versa

    • duse

      Not sure how you came to that conclusion, this is EXACTLY an evolution of the Android UI. This is the same as what we already have today, action bar, spinner, action overflow, nav drawer, only difference is the nav drawer is a full button (should've been that way from the beginning, as it is now it's not at all apparent it's even a button to a new user), and the spinner arrow is straight down instead of facing the corner. Are you seeing the full hamburger icon on the left and saying it looks like iOS for that reason alone? I can't see what else looks like iOS at all. This is today's Android UI with minor tweaks.

  • Marcell Lévai

    I like where this is going, though at the moment the app look very unpolished. I really hope that either these won't be html5 apps but native instead - or they implement this system-wide html5 thingy in a way that it's at least as speedy as a native app.

  • supremekizzle

    Too reminiscent of WP8

    • pepcok

      how exactly is that reminiscent of WP8? :)

      • supremekizzle

        It just is, gosh.

        • pepcok

          does it come in flavors?

    I am amazed how many people prefer it UGLY, but not iOS style.. What a .... Google finally gets it! If you want to beat APPLE - be like APPLE! And I LOVE IT! Love the apps in iOS, love all updated apps lately.. Customization with the pretty iOS7 apps. Perfect phone.

    Timely is the alarm clock app google just bought out a few months ago. As soon as google owned it timely showed up in google sync so now you can sync your alarm across devices. It's only natural that google would want to use the app's code and expand on it, as well. It sounds like an alarm/calendar app have been merged together. I just hope that UI gets scrapped. Timely is beautiful the way it is now, and that screenshot looks like apple shat all over it, then trolled the underlying code. If they want to improve on timely there is only one thing it needs...multiple alarms. Other than that, please don't try to fix what isn't broken here, google....timely is great the way it is.

    • LuisFlores3

      I'm confused... Multiple alarms???

      • hp420

        I said timely, not the stock alarm app.

        • LuisFlores3

          That is timely.

          • hp420

            oh wow...my mistake, you're 100% right!! I've been using it for months and I never saw that tiny little button hiding all the way in the bottom corner. Thanks for pointing it out!! I've been really frustrated because I've been using the stock alarm to set my additional alarms lol...sorry for the confusion!

          • LuisFlores3

            No big deal. Glad I could help.

  • Anon

    I really hope these are Sense apps. I'm usually all like "yeah updates and redesigns and stuff" but this looks bad.

  • Segroukin

    Looks rough

  • Marco Mattietto

    What do you people think about this?
    Found this in an Italian android blog, this afternoon (about 15 GMT)

    • matteventu

      Dove l'hai trovato esattamente? Che forum? E cosa ha scritto l'utente?

      • Marco Mattietto

        tu tuttoandroid che l'ha preso da reddit. L'utente che l'ha postato ha scritto che questo è reale mentre il precendente era un fake.

        It was found on reddit. Someone posted it, saying that the prevoius one was fake and this is "a real one".

    • Simon Belmont

      Is that....the updated stock email client? It's not bad looking.

      I wish they'd put the stock email client in the Google Play Store so it can be improved and fixed faster than OTA updates can be pushed. Here's hoping that's coming.

    • Badouken

      If that's the new Gmail id be fine with it... Seems likely because Google Keep just had a similar update to change the color/design except it was yellow not red.

  • Baspower

    I like the vibrant colors in the Keep app, but I don't know whether that is a 'first look' at a new general Android design or just meant for Keep. These screenshots don't have the colors from the Gmail screenshots though. And that Reddit post is confusing me even more.

    • Jovie Brett Bardoles

      I do like the same thing has Google Keep update with it recently but with all of these leaked shots by AP, I just don't like it. It's even far away from Android Guidelines so how they are supposed from Google's redesign language? :o

      • Baspower

        Yeah, the only thing I can recall is that Google bought the Timely team mainly for the looks and animations. As the Geek post suggests, this calendar app has "visual flourishes that couldn’t be captured in screenshots", so perhaps Google is stepping away from Holo to focus on animations and other 'niceties'.

  • Peter Blanco

    How about Google Now Card interface like you've BEEN doing Google, please? I think we've all grown to love that!

    • Jovie Brett Bardoles

      I almost forgot that but I think they are only implementing that interface on Google+ and Google Now :/

  • Duckie1217

    Google bought Timely, correct?

    • CuriousCursor

      Yeah but timely is an alarm app, isn't it?

      • Duckie1217

        They might connect Timely with the Calendar app?

      • Simon Belmont

        The Timely crew could still help Google to design the UI for other apps. It doesn't just have to be for the clock app.

        I'll reserve my judgment on all this leaks when I see it for real at I/O (or not). One thing's for certain, Android is gonna get a new coat of paint fairly soon.

  • Torben Buck
    • Jovie Brett Bardoles

      That's what my eyes are looking for ;) anyway I'm too lazy to read all over the comments on the post but is it official or just a mockup? And this design is matching the recent update on Google Keep, it's beautiful.

      EDIT
      It's just a graphic concept, DAMN.

  • Trysta

    Still crap. How hard is it for google to understand that people want a usable calendar. No fancy metaphorical circles. I want to see words telling me what is scheduled and when. I want a good month view. Other apps can manage to do this (which is why I use them). Why can't google understand this?! Also I don't care what the iOS7 calendar app looks like.

  • Kidd_Funkadelic

    I'm sorry but a calendar app needs to show (at least partial) text of individual meetings/events directly on the month view, not just an indicator that something is going on that day. Business Calendar handles this so well, it will be hard to ever top.

  • Alex

    Just a coincidence that Google acquired Timely/Bitspin not all that long ago?

    • Jack Dunn

      I was just thinking that, not an internal name but probably an addition to timely that'll be a default gapp

  • PiLoT

    I think considering how the gmail leak and the chromeos multitasker and this calender leak all hav a very similar title bar id say this is a gapps redesign

  • Shaun Hammond

    Yeah this and the Gmail that leaked? Definitely going to see more colour, more circles, more flat-ness, more vectors... less blue! This is Android 4.5/5.0 redesign for sure.

    I'll be looking forward to that new Nexus tablet to play with Android again.

  • Mike

    I really hope Gmail and Calendar dont end up looking like this. I love the way they look now, and these redesigns just look bad.

    I don't think this UI is ugly. It's beautiful, different. The only ugly thing is the navigation drawer icon. The current 'burger' thing is a lot prettier!!

    Just FYI "Timely" is also the name of the alarm clock app that google bought recently. Maybe it has finding to do with this......
