Checker Plus for Google Calendar
From the same developer as the Checker Plus for Gmail extension in the previous slide, this app brings much of the same functionality to those using Google Calendar.
The icon in the upper-right corner of the browser shows the time for the next appointment. Tapping it opens a calendar window that can be set to day, week, month, and agenda views.
New appointments can be entered in the calendar window in natural language. An example of this is "7pm Dinner at Bob's".
All calendar functions are performed in the extension without opening the Google Calendar web page. Like native Google Calendar, this extension handles multiple calendars.
This extension pops open a fully functional calculator when its icon is tapped. It has both a basic calculator and a scientific calculator as pictured above.
It doesn't do anything fancy like provide a paper strip of calculations, but it does the simple functions very well using an attractive display.
Those needing a simple text editor may find this extension to be useful. It presents a blank editor window completely devoid of distractions.
Write Space saves data locally and avoids cloud storage for those leery of the unknown. It auto-saves the work in progress with every key press so it will never lose any data no matter what happens. It remembers where you left off when you last exited the extension, and all work is done offline so no web connection is required to use Write Space.
It is designed for heavy writing and keeps track of the word count.
The user can set the background and font to make it look as desired.
