Apple has announced that the new MobileMe Calendar is now available for all MobileMe subscribers. MobileMe Calendar service allows you to synchronize calendars between your Mac and iOS devices. The calendar is also available on me.com.
To start using the new MobileMe Calendar log in me.com/calendar and click Upgrade Now located at the lower left of your screen. If you’re already using MobileMe Calendar Beta then you don’t need to do these steps.
The features of the new MobileMe Calendar are (as posted on Apple’s site):
The best calendar service for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch The new MobileMe Calendar works great with the built-in calendar app on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch by always keeping it in sync with your Mac or PC. New events or changes are automatically pushed to your iOS 4 devices so your calendar stays up to date. If you schedule a meeting on your device, that’s pushed everywhere too.
Share calendars with family and friends You can easily share your calendars with one or more MobileMe members to keep everyone on the same page. For example, create a shared calendar called “Family” for weekend activities. You can allow the person you’re sharing a calendar with to edit events, and you can set up email notifications to tell you when they make a change.
Publish a calendar for a group or team The new MobileMe Calendar lets you share a read-only public calendar, perfect for publishing an events calendar such as a soccer team schedule. After setting it up, you can send the team members a link to view the calendar on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC.
Event invitations with RSVPs You can also invite guests to an event from MobileMe Calendar. Just add their email address to the event (they don’t have to be a MobileMe member) and your guests will get an invitation email they can respond to directly by clicking a link. Your event then automatically updates, making it easy to track RSVPs right in your calendar.
New web application MobileMe Calendar includes a new web application at me.com with great-looking calendar views. You’ll find redesigned day, week, and month views, as well as a new list view to make scanning your events easier. The new web application works best with Safari 5, Firefox 3.6, and Internet Explorer 8.
