Google Calendar finally comes to the iPad

If you would like to use the new Gboard keyboard in the Google Search app, all you have to do is head over to the Google app settings.

It's better late than never for Google to introduce its Calendar app for iPad two years after the Google Calendar for iOS app was launched. The big search topics of the moment are displayed in blocks of Google primary colors, and tapping a topic will open a search tab with that subject.

On its blog Google states that more improvements to the app will be coming soon, specifically mentioning an upcoming widget that will enable quick viewing of future events. Gboard allowed for a more enhanced messaging experience, including having a built-in GIF search option.

The app also includes a fairly new smart scheduling feature called Find a Time, which aims to take the pain out of scheduling meetings. You can download the app today from the App Store.

With the new app, you'll get all the Calendar features you know and love, now optimized for iPad.

Indiana hires Archie Miller as new coach
He wants the Hoosiers to be aggressive on offense, nasty on defense and, of course, win the in-state recruiting battles. Indiana University announced Saturday that Archie Miller has been named the new head men's basketball coach.

Behold! Google Calendar - for your iPad. The notifications and breaking news alerts will be based off the live trending searches that are happening on Google.

To access the widget, use 3D Touch on the app icon or swipe right on your home screen. This will help because you will not need to wait for the Google Search app homescreen to load up in order to perform the search.

Google has also expanded support for the iPhone's 3D Touch feature through the entire app. Or you can hard-press on Search results, Map results and cards in your feed to see a preview of the content before opening it all the way.

iPad users will now get a full version, meaning they'll no longer have to make do without some features.
