An online calendar launched in beta this week is unique in that it works offline as well. Called Scrybe, it operates in your browser even when you are offline and synchronizes when you reconnect. This makes it immediately more practical than Web 2.0 calendar applications such as Google Calendar. Other interesting features include world time integration, making it easy to schedule meetings involving participants in multiple time zones; easy data transfer in and out of other applications; a “ThoughtPad” for organizing Web clips and notes (not yet functional in the beta); and PaperSync, for easily formatting and printing calendars and other data in hard copy.

The Web site has a video overview. You can also read this review from CNET’s Rafe Needleman.
