    GSuite: View your Google Calendar, Photos, Docs and Blogs on the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch.

    An easy to use interface.
    Calendar in monthly, weekly, daily or agenda format. Touch event for more information.
    View multiple photo albums, and/or each picture in the album.
    email photos, calendar info, document and blogs.
    Save multiple google logins for easy switching.

    All google items integrated, so no need to quit one source to go to another.

    All through IPad app interface and not a web page.

    Here are some codes for free downloads. (I hope it is okay to include this.) Enjoy!

    Note: enter Google login without '@gmail.com'. Sorry that this isn't clear. I will add a note in the next release. (You will see from the app store comments this frustrated a few people. Lesson learned...)

    Sounds like a very useful product! Congratulations on what is sure to be a successful launch!

    How do you use the codes? I didn't see a way to enter codes via the Apps Store. Thanks!

    Hmm, I tried it but I didn't like that I couldn't log in without having to save my login name and then there wasn't a logout option - you can only change to another user name; but if you only have one user name you still remain logged in!

    Looks nice though - would like to see my email on there as well

    Not bad for a first version.

    In itunes, at the bottom, under the header 'Manage', there is a link to 'Redeem'.

    Enter the code there.

    Or, on the ipad, go into the app store, and on any of the main screens, at the bottom, is a Redeem button.

    Just enter the code there, and you will get the app downloaded.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I'll put in a logout option, based on deleting the login. Or something like that. Let me think about it a bit.

    I figured since this was on a personal IPad, it wasn't necessary. However, I (also?) have kids, and should know better than to leave logins around.....

    Thanks

    Just downloaded this (I'm in Amsterdam so the codes don't work, but I was happy to pay), and for Photos, it only loads 25 pictures. Is it possible to load more (am I missing a setting) or is that impossible?

    GSuite

    The app downloads up to 25 pictures (as you said) in an album. This was done purely for bandwidth issues. If someone has 100's of pictures, the app may never return, or at least not until the user has lost patience.

    It does allow up to 25 albums as well, so if pictures are split amongst albums, you can still get them.

    The 25 was somewhat arbitrary. When I was testing, it seemed like a good compromise. I can change it if that makes more sense. What number would you suggest?

    Thanks

    I've got like 200 to 400 pictures per album. But when I load the program I'm usually on a WiFi network, so it's pretty fast! Perhaps it should be like a setting in the settings screen?

    The codes don't seem to work. Am I doing it right? I've never redeemed a code before.

    Clicked on Redeem at the bottom of "Top Charts", pasted in the code, pressed Redeem. Asked me to sign in, so I entered my iTunes password as prompted. Pressed Redeem again, pasted code again, this time the Redeem window went grey as if it was going to do something, but didn't do anything. No app installed.

    Edit: I tried three different codes (1st, 4th and 5th), all with no result.

    A setting for number of pictures makes sense. I'll add it.
    It should be available in the next release + 1. There is a release already pending with apple.

    Thanks

    (The release, by the way, includes google contacts, plus the ability to email and, on the iPhone, call directly from the contact info.)

    Thanks

    Sorry for the confusion about the codes for the free downloads. Each code is good for 1 free download, so it is a first come, first served basis.

    I do appreciate the interest in the app!

    Thanks

    In future codes will be provided in a private message by you from user this avoids confusion as there is no way of knowing when codes are finished

    Cool, an update is coming! That's great.

    Are you guys considering adding a "more" button to show more pictures of my albums?

    access more pictures...

    The update which allows more photos will be in the next release + 1. I had already submitted the latest release when we discussed the number of photos issue.

    Let's estimate a month or so for me adding this feature (along with a couple of others), submitting the app and getting it approved.

    I hope that is okay.

    Thanks!

    A version was just released in the app store which includes access to your contacts. You can email directly from the list, and, on the iPhone, call directly from the list.

    I just submitted the version which allows you to add and delete individual calendar events.
    Other improvements include:
    It allows you to change the maximum number of photos and albums to download.
    It accepts google passwords with non standard characters.

    I'll post a note when it is approved by the app store.

    Thanks!

    Apple just approved the latest version, which allows you to set the maximum number of albums and photos for you to download. I hope this helps.

    It also allows you to add and delete individual calendar events, which has been requested by a number of people.

    Thanks

    This sounds like a winner, however is there a way to code in a web page <img src="some photo" ....>BLAH BLAH BLAH<>

    I know the particular names of the images I want to show on my iPad and do not want to export the web page to another location, i.e., iDisk, ISP, etc.
