Make your Google calendar your desktop wallpaper


Playing around with the Google Calendar API and I created WallCalendar. I wanted a simple way to have my google calendar as my wallpaper without installing Google Desktop. So here it is. You can pick a background image, plug in your details and enjoy. Double click the tray icon and it will take you to your Google calendar page for editing. Here's a screenshot of it running on my Vista machine, it works on XP great too.

I'd like to play around with the Google cal in C#. Any chance of you posting your code?

Thanks!

Hi Jeremy,

This is a great little app, but not all of my events are on here while they do appear on my google Calendar, any idea why?

Jeremy said...

Can you tell me what kind of events aren't showing up? Are they recurring events?

Can you post more directions-- I got it to download the installer but don't know how to utilize the program.

thanks!

how do you uninstall the app

Nice work, but I don't need it anymore. How do I uninstall? It doesn't show up in the list of installed programs and if I try to delete the file it says it needs permission.

Hey folks, to uninstall, just right click on the icon in the tray to exit. Then delete the files from your desktop, that's it :)
