    Microsoft needs to open up the calendar app


    Boy it would be nice to use the calendar app with with my google calendar or even be able to tie it to my exchange calender here at work.

    Just some random thoughts. Sorry if the subject has been touched on before.

    Same with the people app (though /some/ of that is promised).

    Unfortunately, companies being companies, they only cooperate sparingly and over all, complete interaction between all major internet "cloud" service providers it not something that's going to happen in any large way.

    But your right, My cloud storage app, email app, people app, calendar app etc should all be cross platform and cross service. Picking the best one in each location but access to the sum total of all my data no matter where it's stored.

    Usually you need to look at third party developers for that (i.e. trillian etc) but even then service and features are always spotty/incomplete , largely due to the service providers needing you to be using /thier/ clients which support /their/ ads.

    I just don't get why they did not even add exchange (one of their own products) support.

    They want you to buy office :/ Or even outlook stand alone.

    That's really the theme of Windows 8. Buy, buy buy... everything is an add-on app fro the app store.

Hi, I can't get the popup reminders for the calendars to work. Neither in the Metro calendar nor in Outlook. I also can't make them synchronize. Does anyone know? Do sound alerts exist at all in Windows calendars or just pop ups if any?
