As of this writing I have over 90 Google calendars that I view several times a day. I found myself spending more time than I prefer toggling calendars. To save time I wrote a Java Webstart application called Google Calendar Views. With this application, you can create, save and apply views of like calendars. You can specify whether each calendar is hidden, selected, and its color. Once you add your Google accounts and setup your views you can quickly swap views. All account and calendar information is written locally to an encrypted embedded JavaDB (Derby) database on your computer. Read more about it, or view the YouTube video below and then give it a try.
