When should you consider Google Calendar over the competition?

The single most compelling reason for users to choose Google Calendar over the competition is its seamless integration with the broader Google ecosystem. By leveraging Google Calendar, users gain access to a suite of interconnected tools and services such as Gmail, Google Meet, Google Drive, and Google Tasks. This integration enables a unified and streamlined workflow, allowing users to seamlessly schedule events, collaborate with others, access relevant information, and manage their tasks—all within a cohesive ecosystem. This level of integration enhances productivity, reduces friction in daily workflows, and fosters a more efficient and organized approach to managing time and tasks.

When should you consider a Google Calendar alternative instead of Google Calendar itself?

The single most useful reason why users might consider a Google Calendar alternative is for enhanced privacy and data control. While Google Calendar offers robust features and integration with other Google services, some users may have concerns about the privacy of their data and the extent of Google's data collection practices. Opting for an alternative calendar solution that prioritizes privacy and offers greater control over personal data can provide users with peace of mind and reassurance that their information remains secure and private. Additionally, some alternative calendar apps may offer unique features or customization options that better align with specific user preferences or requirements. Ultimately, choosing an alternative calendar solution allows users to prioritize privacy and tailor their experience to better suit their individual needs.

Works like a dream. Great set of integrations, great support team - I had to move mailbird to a different PC and the team's answer was spot on - worked first time, was responsive and timely. The product itself is A1 - One of the best email clients I have ever used.

Mailbird has many functions that Outlook has at a fraction of the cost. It syncs to Google calendar, Todoist, Facebook and LinkedIn. I can also use Mailbird to receive and send email from my Gmail accounts.

Great support. Great email client.

The support folks at Mailbird are brilliant. First, they listen. If there is something I need to know, they tell me. If there is a flaw in the product, they pass it on to developers. (There aren't many. It's a pretty darn good email client, with a lot of extra social media integrations.)
