Is there a Windows equivalent to the Calender app for my iPhone?

    I'm looking for a Calender-type app that I can make dates/appointments/to do lists on my computer that'll sync to a iPhone app. I don't ever use the Calender app on the phone, because I don't have a Mac.

    So basically... is there a Windows equivalent to Calender? (That also has a software program for my computer) so that I can add to-do things on my phone OR on my computer that'll stay synced?

    My girlfriend is always complaining that I forget everything she tells me, and I need a way to stay up to date. lol

    why not setup a google calendar and sync it with your iphone's built in calendar?

    I think the two work together...

    Or use Outlook?

    Hmm... Interesting. I wasn't aware that I could sync the google calendar with the Calendar app...?

    Can anyone here verify that that is true? If so, that does seem like my best option...

    Yes, I can verify that this works. Not only that, but it works really well. I have my google acct set up as exchange, and email, contacts, and calendar are syncd flawlessly.

    I believe you can also sync the iPhone calendar to Outlook under XP/Vista/7 and Windows Calendar under Vista/7 using iTunes.

    For push, Google Calendar using Google Sync works wonderfully. Additionally, MobileMe does work under Windows and includes a web app and calendar syncing under Windows. However, if you don't own a Mac, I would probably go the Google route as MobileMe isn't the best under Windows.

    So if I did decide to use Google Calendar to sync with my Calendar app.. What modifications/adjustments would be needed to do within iTunes in order to make this happen?
    Thanks guys!

    I don't do anything in iTunes, it all happens over wifi.

    I am syncing 3 Google Calendars with Pocket Informant. My regular cal syncs with MobileMe. Personally, I find the stock Calendar is too limiting....

    This link will probably help you out. There is even a movie!
