Google Calendar looks great in Safari for the iPad, but wouldn’t it be nice to access and use your Google Calendars in the iPad‘s native Calendar application (which by the way, is gorgeous)? Good, I thought you would. The how-to guide below will show you how to add your Google Calendar account to the iPad so that you can always keep your calendars synchronized between your device and Google’s servers.
NOTE: If you have more than one Google Calendar then you may want to check out the Sync Google Account with Your iPad guide instead and follow the instructions at the end of the guide. The guide below is intended for users that have only one calendar in Google.
