If it wasn’t for my Google Calendar I likely would miss every important meeting, deadline, and birthday — and I’m definitely not alone.

Our family is pretty busy. With two working adults and five kids it takes some serious planning. To keep track of where everyone is and where they need to be. Like many families, we use shared calendars to do this. But we also have work calendars through Google Apps, as well as using iCloud for personal stuff.

Thankfully there are third-party fixes, such as Pod for Gmail, which recognises event info and loads it into a full calendar event right inside your Gmail window.
