I've been holding off doing a show on iCal for a while now, but I'm glad I did. Leopard and the iPhone has brought a new lease of life to iCal, the calendar application included with Mac OS X.
Under the hood, there's a ton of cool and really useful features that now make iCal a credible and reliable tool to help you plan, organise and share your busy schedule.
In fact, there's so much stuff to cram in, I've had to split the show into two parts! In this first part, I cover:
iCal User Interface Basics
Creating and Managing Calendars
Creating and Editing Events
Setting up Mail for iCal invitations
Using Invitations to Setup Meetings
Using Data Detectors in Mail
Setting up To Dos via Mail
Part 2 will be along shortly looking at some of the more advanced features of iCal.
This weeks show is an Extra Members show and is available in Apple TV HD format (1280x720), Enhanced Desktop ED Format (960x540) and iPhone/iPod resolution (640x360). For full details on how easy it is to become an Extra! member and get this show along with the next six months worth of weekly shows PLUS access to over 120+ Mac based tutorials, just follow this link.
Another Members show this week and it's part 2 of the iCal tutorial. In this weeks episode, I look at some of the more advanced capabilities of iCal that make it such a powerful planning and sharing tool. In addition, I also take a look at some third party tools that enable you to extend the capabilities of iCal and also integrate and syncronise with Google Calendar.
The show covers:
Time Zone Support
Sharing Calendars incl.
Syncronising Calendars incl.
Third Party Integration
Don't forget that the members version of the show has embedded chapters so you can go straight to the section that you want or easily skip sections.
