Google late last year launched its all-new Google Calendar app for Android with a smarter, more automated version of the platform, with a promise that the app would someday hit Apple's iOS-enabled devices.

Thanks to a few leaked screenshots sent in to The Next Web, it appears the revamped Google Calendar app is ready for an imminent launch on iPhone and iPad. The images show off an app that looks pretty similar to the Android version, with Calendar pulling photos and map information straight into the app.

When the app debuts, it will be the first time a dedicated Google Calendar app launches on iOS. There's no confirmation yet as to whether the iOS version will encompass all of the features from its Android counterpart, like Schedule View or Assists, but, as The Next Web points out, with the images leaking it shouldn't be long until the app launches to find out.

Google has a number of regularly updated apps on Apple's mobile platform, including fan favorite Google Maps and Google Translate, which was just updated with instant camera-based translation software Word Lens.

You're right and that's my thinking as well. If you're going to use and depend on Google apps, you might as well buy an Android phone.

I like a few of Google services (Search, Gmail, Calendar, Translate) but the rest of Android experience sucks - so I’d rather use those services on iOS (if I can). Choice is a great thing.

or you could look at it like this:

i can use (almost?) all google services on iOS, but (almost?) non of the apple services on android.

I suppose there is still great utility to iOS and iOS games, but it just seems like if you use all Google services and use all of Google's apps you would be more integrated to just get an android phone.

I suppose I'm wrong though.

There are some people out there who like Apple hardware but prefer apps from other vendors. Whether the app is from Google, MS, or whomever really doesn't matter. Choice is a great thing. Think about all those users who have that "Crapple" folder on their devices; filled with stock Apple apps. Imagine a world where the only apps usable on Apple devices came from Apple.

Apple makes great hardware. Developers, including Google, make the platform great with the apps.

Apple makes great hardware and great software, but their services, for the most part, suck.
