Google Calendar and Apple Calendar
The most popular App for Glance clock is a Calendar. Glance can display information from Google and Outlook calendar, by taking information from your account and Apple calendar directly from your iOS device.
Your calendar can be displayed in three modes that you can enable from Glance App:
Day schedule as a clock face
Day schedule periodically
1. Appointments notifications (As Notofocations)
In this mode, you will get notifications about upcoming events the same manner you get them on your smartphone. Glance system reads triggers that you set when creating a calendar event, 10 minutes before the event for example, and then show you a notification on the Glance clock face.
If a reminder is set for more than 5 min before an event, Glance will show the upcoming appointment and its name as well as further events, so you will see what is coming next.
If a reminder is set for less than 5 min before an event, Glance will show only upcoming event and its name so you can clearly see that will happen soon.
2. Day schedule periodically (On Time and Recurring)
In the Recurring mode, Glance shows your calendar every 60 minutes. When it’s time to show your calendar, you will see all your calendar events starting from the current time to 12 hours ahead one next to another. For example, at the beginning of the day, you can get a clear picture of your day and how it looks like.
We are working to add a feature to set a particular time when you want to see your calendar, 9:00 am for instance.
The On Time mode shows your calendar on the selected time.
3. Day schedule as a clock face (As Clock Face or ACF)
In this mode, all your calendar events from the current time to 12 hours ahead will “freeze” on the Glance clock face, so will see them continuously. The picture on the screen is updated every 15 minutes to make information about the appointment is up to date. In ACF mode Glance does not show the name of the event because the scrolling text is very annoying.
As you know, you can select different colors for your appointments in a calendar. Glance reads colors from your Google or Apple calendar and shows them on the clock face. The colors on Glance is always matched to colors in the calendar events colors. Colorful picture of your day helps you quickly understand how your day is laid out to move forward.
