I happened upon this lovely gem of news on Twittter this afternoon:

A new day for Google Calendar
Posted: Monday, November 03, 2014

Posted by Ian Leader, Product Manager

Today we’re introducing a brand new Google Calendar app. It’s designed to be a helpful assistant, so you can spend less time managing your day, and more time enjoying it.

It takes a lot of work to stay on top of your schedule, after all. You have to manually enter that hotel or dinner reservation, then update it if your plans change. You have to hunt around for addresses and phone numbers, then add them to your events. And if you’re on a mobile device, you might just give up on these kinds of tasks entirely.

Calendars (like email) should do better—especially on phones and tablets—so we set out to build one that’s always at your service. Here are just some of the ways the new Calendar app can help.

The new calendar is available today for Lollipop devices and will be available for download in the coming weeks for devices running Android 4.1+.

So, am I the only one that thinks this looks like a great (and long-overdue) refresh of Big G's calendar?

UPDATE: Download link: Google Calendar 5.0 Is Ready For Your 4.0.3 Devices APK Download
The apk is signed by Google & official. Get it while it's hot!

UPDATE 2: I had a heck of a time getting the app to download, so I tossed it up on drive once I was successful.
Here's the exact same signed APK.
com.google.android.calendar-5.0-1554015-2014102731-minAPI15-2.apk - Google Drive
UPDATE to UPDATE 2: My theory is, since the file is hosted in Drive, Drive tries to open it if you've got Drive installed on your phone, but it can't. If you get a message that you're phone can't open the file, use a file Explorer app to open/install.

It looks like they are mixing calendar and social media into one. I personally want my calendar to be what it is now. Guess I'll fall behind. ;)

I don't see it that way. They're just making the calendar more vibrant. Adding pictures to help differentiate the I formation.

The only social factor seems to be the integration of contacts, which already exists when you add people to an event.

Very interesting... Looks like they have combined similar styles into G+, the new G Mail, Inbox, and now new Calendar. Different ....but seems kind of cool.

Some Google Now -esque features as well.

Interesting to see them tying everything together more.
