Google spruces up Gmail and Calendar
The Big G has whipped out the brushes and given the design of their Calendar and Gmail services a bit of a summer makeover. Although functionality remains the same, the layout has become less cluttered and easier to navigate, with a reshuffling of buttons and a host of new themes. All in all the design is a welcome step forward in creating a unified look between desktop, tablet and mobile versions of the search giant’s services and has resulted in a more streamlined experience. Coupled with the new Google+ social network launch, it seems that the innovation train is continuing to chug along at top speed.
