Getting Google Calendar on your keitai

If you have a Japanese mobile phone and use Google Calendar, here’s a minor hack that lets you view your up-to-date calendar through your mobile browser:

  1. Open Google Calendar.
  2. Go to the list of calendars on the left side of the screen, and click on the arrow next to the calendar you want to view. Select “Calendar Settings” from the menu.
  3. Click the blue “HTML” button next to “Private Address.”
  4. Select “configuration tool.”
  5. Select “no controls” and set Mode to “Agenda.”
  6. Copy the Google URL that appears in the code box: everything from the ‘src=”‘ to the next quotation mark. It should look kind of like this: &pvttk=x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0&chrome=NONE&mode=AGENDA&height=557

    You should be able to go to this URL in your web browser and get a simple list of your upcoming appointments.

  7. E-mail this URL to your keitai, then click through, bookmark and enjoy!

Now, if only Google would provide a really simple way to do this…
