W Google Calendar Notifier

Version: 0.1


W Google Calendar Notifier provides you a convenient way to be notified of the events stored in your primary owned Google Calendar account. It uses your system's tray notification area to show your due events for today, tomorrow or within 5 days.


W Google Calendar Notifier is written in Java and requires the Java Runtime Enviroment (JRE) version 1.6u17 or later to be present. [download]

If you have the required JRE, there's no special installation required.

W Google Calendar Notifier should run on any operating system having supported JRE version.

To start the application just double click on the gcalnotifier.jar file or type java -jar gcalnotifier.jar into a command line session.

  Using W Google Calendar Notifier   

When you first start W Google Calendar Notifier it displays the options dialog, which allows you to specify the access data for your Google Calendar account. This dialog also lets you specify the following options:

After closing this dialog W Google Calendar Notifier connects to your calendar and shows due events in a balloon message. If you click on this balloon a detailed event list is shown.

The application's menu can be accessed by clicking with the right mouse button on the tray icon.


Q: How can I change the program options (access data, etc)?
A: All program options are stored in the gcalnotifier.cfg file. If you remove this file and restart the application the options dialog will appear.

Q: I see more events at the Google Calendar web site than in W Google Calendar Notifier.
A: Currently only the primary owned calendar (e.g. the 1st calendar you made) is checked for events. To see all events copy them into your 1st calendar.
