Doesn't matter if is does or doesn't work with 1.5, 1.6, or 2.0 all availabe apps are seen by everyone. I even see apps that are only for rooted phones. Not sure why this app isn't there because the web site is well developed and everything looks legit.

Default iso calendar app: events every 2 wks & other odd re-occurrences

Hi. Wondering if anyone has had any luck on finding a calendar that lets you set up events to reoccur every other week or every three days, odd re-occurrences such as those ...? HubKap app had a bit of that feature but then it disappeared when they added an end time option. Thanks!

Google does that (if you use it or sync your other calendars with it). Just put in event as normal and then edit when it re-occurs (this is when you will be able to customize it to fit you).

Default google calendar features for phone

Thanks for taking the time to respond.

Yes. Online I can do more than I ever imagined with Google calendar.

I just want to be able to use a calendar app on my mobile that allows me to enter and/or edit events to repeat in odd configurations... every 2 wks, every 3 days, every other Wednesday & Thursday... etc.

I can't go online each time to enter/edit an event's schedule.

Thanks!

Sorry, there's no such app YET. Hopefully there are some really good developers that are reading this thread as we speak so they can make us all happy (wishful thinking).

As of now we have google.

I'm learning that the Market may show apps only compatible with your specific device. I stumbled upon this info by happenstance.

I'm not sure if this is a new Market feature or if it is device specific. All I do know is that I used to be able to see all the apps offered but since I haven't been shopping for anything in particular in quite awhile, I have not had the chance to notice if I'm still able to see all apps.

Maybe this was implemented to keep people from downloading the wrong app by mistake. We can all tell by some of the reviews left on many apps that there are a lot of idiots in the Market that do not read everything BEFORE they download, LOL!

Default Reminders Options

I can live with the barely-acceptable calendar - but the options to acknowledge reminders suck. If there is more than one reminder notification, I can only dismiss or snooze them all, but not an individual one.

I've found that even opening the one I want to dismiss and deleting all of its reminders is not enough to remove the it from the notification list.

And not being able to enter a reminder period of my choice sucks too - 1, 2, 3 and 12 hours & 1, 2 and 7 days are not sufficient (and why did they think that "24 hours" was better terminology than "1 day"?). There are plenty of times I want a reminder of 6 hours, 3 days or 15 minutes.

Are there any apps/widgets that address those two annoyances?

One of the main "event setting" features I miss from the old Palm OS is "duplicate event." This let you highlight an event and duplicate it to another date. This worked very well for odd re-occurences (e.g., things that only happened several times a year, but not specifically "Semi-annually", an event you only needed to re-enter once or twice, etc.) I particularly liked it for doctors' appointments. Highlight the current appointment there in the office while you were scheduling the follow-up, duplicate to the new date, change the time if necessary, good to go. Seeing a doctor every 3 or 4 months, this function was brilliant. I would really like to have it again. Any developers listening?

oh, and spidery6, I'm with you. The old Palm OS let you set custom reminder times, too...

I'm another PalmOS refugee, and am using a Droid Eris. The poor calendar is my biggest gripe.

In particular, it's awfully difficult to add an event. The best solution that I've found is the "Quick Add" within Pure Calendar. But since the Eris lacks a physical keyboard, even that isn't quick enough for me. A true point-and-click interface would be really nice.

I've described some ideas about how to do this here as user 'Jonathan':
Common problems Android 'Pure' widgets series (calendar)

I use Pure Calendar and Calendar Pad, but in addition to the problems with adding events, am often frustrated when Calendar Pad drops me into the Eris's calendar interface.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions, e.g. a good interface for adding calendar events, which I haven't found yet. Or maybe some nice developer will rescue us.

Out of curiosity - are these calendar apps "offline"? i.e., Can I use them with data stored on the phone only? i don't want to keep synching with a Google account!

If, like me, you would like to see a point-and-click interface to add calendar events (especially useful for keyboardless Android devices like the Eris and Hero), please "lobby" the author at the link above. He says that he'll generally add a new feature if he receives at least 5 requests for it.

Just tried Jorte, I've tried all the rest like most of you. Jorte has good looks and the UI is decent, but I can't seem to be able to edit dates and things from the mobile phone? It's always something...I swear I'll be using the web version of google calendar forever but I don't want to! I want to be able to basically have an online and offline calendar that will stay in sync like the iphone. Annoying.

Actually no you are wrong about this. With us droid users some people could see Live Wallpapers on the market and some couldn't. The ones that couldn't see them did not update to 2.1 yet. The people who could see them updated to 2.1

Also the same thing with Google Earth. 2.1 users could see it on the market and 2.0.1 users couldn't.

Both Live Wallpapers and Google Earth are 2.1 OS exclusive so those that don't have 2.1 can't see them on the market.

Very nice calendar app even though it is only in beta. It is appreciated that you are an active developer. We are fortunate to have some very active developers on this site. Keep up the great effort.

One thing that is driving me nuts with the calendar app is the notifications. I'm a BB user.. I need that notification popup and it doesnt exist on the android yet. `

This is nice..

Any way you could build in pop-up notifications/reminders that give a snooze/dismiss options? Similar to blackberry OS..

Is this too much to as for? Or am I missing some thing? I use Calendar Pad and Calwidget.
I believe Google is updating the Calendar in Fro-Yo



I personally like CalWidget. It's nice to be able to tweak all the colors and transparency. Could be prettier, but with a pretty transparent background it looks quite good.

There are two quick add-event-to-cal apps in the Market:
-- Calendar Add Event (paid)
-- One Click Add Event (free)
Free one was just introduced a few weeks ago. I've used the paid app since September, first on a MyTouch and now my Droid. Works as advertised. They both look pretty much the same to me, both in appearance and operation. Try the freebie first. If there are problems, then the paid app.

Hmmm, I could do that, but that is not recommended by the Android designers. Here is the quotation from Activity and Task Design Guidelines | Android Developers

If your background service needs to notify a user, use the standard notification system don't use a dialog or toast to notify them. A dialog or toast would immediately take focus and interrupt the user, taking focus away from what they were doing: the user could be in the middle of typing text the moment the dialog appears and could accidentally act on the dialog. Users are used to dealing with notifications and can pull down the notification shade at their convenience to respond to your message.

I know that you do not have to agree with this
Maybe I will think of something which does not interfere with what the user is doing when notification is displayed...

Sounds like a good reason to get them to implement a snooze option for notifications in general.

Why not make it an option and leave it up to the user? I, personally, nearly cant live without this feature. The notification bar is good for some things, but not for things like calendar reminders.

I posted a thread asking whether or not this feature existed in any of the calendar apps, and got a great response from people looking for the exact same thing. I think you'll find ex-blackberry users seeking this more than others as its how the BB OS works by default and one gets accustomed to it.

Calendar Event Popup?

I can understand what is being said in the developer guidelines.. but if you could make an option to send notifications to the notification drop-down, or to have a dismiss/snooze popup notification then you'd satisfy both.

Side note, set an option too in the options for the app to be able to change the default snooze time.. 15 mins, 30 mins, 1hr, 0.5 day, etc OR, when you select snooze on the popup, it'd give you a list of options for time (Snooze 15M, Snooze 30M, Snooze 1HR, etc etc etc)

Let me know your thoughts. I'd have already created this if I had the knowledge, but i'm a sales guy, not a programming guy

Thumbs up Events in status bar

Hello,

do you guys know of any calendar app that shows a notification icon of today's events in the status bar (other than QuickCalendar, which tends to crash every five minutes on my Droid). If not, do you know any calendar that shows appointments on the home screen, something like we had seen on the Nokia phones?

The reason I'm writing this because it makes life a lot easier if you don't have to actually enter your calendar app to see if anything is upcoming. It would be nice if something on the home screen reminded you that you have something to do.

Thanks, I really think this is a great forum!

Thanks for your posting, but these apps just bring up the mediocre builtin Android add-event. There's a decent "quick add" functionality within Pure Calendar/Pure Grid (although entering event-times is awkward for those of us without keyboards), and a much nicer event-add functionality within Gemini.

If not, do you know any calendar that shows appointments on the home screen, something like we had seen on the Nokia phones?

The reason I'm writing this because it makes life a lot easier if you don't have to actually enter your calendar app to see if anything is upcoming. It would be nice if something on the home screen reminded you that you have something to do.

Thanks, I really think this is a great forum!

The commercial Pure Calendar widget does this very well, IMO. The widget provided with the free Calendar Pad app does this pretty well. The bottom line is that you need a widget (not just an app) to put this sort of information on your home screen.

Hello All,

I have a simple requirement, I would like in the agenda view instead of seeing 23/04/10, I would like to see Sat 23 April 2010. People ask what you doing next wednesday and with most widgets I have to work out which date is wednesday.

Thanks if you can help

The "agenda view" widget for Calendar Pad Pro does this. Likely the free version does too.

There is no widget yet, but we are working on it.

Here is the link where I present Gemini Calendar: http://androidforums.com/application-announcements/53948-gemini-calendar-my-vision-calendar-software.html
EDITED:

Gemini Calendar looks to be ALMOST exactly what I've been looking for! I need an app that makes it easy to input my odd work schedule (4 days on, then 4 days off, then 4 nights on, and so on) and the basic daily, weekly, M - F, etc options weren't working. With this app, I can set eight timers that reoccur every sixteen days - and show that schedule for years straight to come! Yes - my schedule is that predictable... And Gemini Calendar almost does it.

In testing it - the reoccurance got off for a few months at a time - and tried to freeze up and force a close... Maybe it's my Droid Incredible freaking it out??


Thanks for the info, powell. Here's hoping for updates and that upcoming widget!!

Default A new calendar issue??

I've read through the entire forum, and have only seen one posting about a non-Monday to Friday calendar...
I'm looking for a calendar that could manage a classic high school rotating timetable... For example, 4 courses that rotate through a repeating 4 day schedule where each day is a particular shuffle of the courses. Some schools might also use an 8-course schedule rotating through 4 (or even 8) days...
Long story short, it does not follow a Monday-Friday schedule.

I'd be looking for something like this that could track tasks (ie. assignments) for each course...

Unfortunately, at this point, it would have to be compatible with Android 1.5 at this point, at least until a firmware upgrade becomes available.

Any thoughts? Any help?
Thanks!

I use Calendar Pad which syncs with Google Calendar and my external calendar that I subscribe to through Google Calendar.

This thread is a little confusing.

Are we talking STANDALONE calendars that DO NOT use the android / HTC calendars

OR

Calendars that do.

I find the android / HTC calendar annoying, so I'm looking for something that works totally seperate from those.

I downloaded Calendar Pad, which works nicely, BUT quickly came to realize that it uses the android calendar to work. Still like the setup so that's what I'm using for now, but definetly far from perfect.

The two things I miss most having changed from Windows Mobile is Pocket Informant, a great PIM program (I found the included WM versions awful), and HanDBase, a great database program. They are both relatively expensive (compared to apps on the market or iPhone apps), but they were what made my PDA essential, and I used them often daily (I still drag my Dell x51v around to access them). HanDBase is said to be working on an Android version, PIM still seems iffy for Android as far as I can see.

Yeah, Gemini Calendar is the best I have found so far. It is still being tweaked by the dev so you just might get exactly what you need from it. I set it in my launcher as one of the main shortcuts that follows the various screens so it is easy to find at a click.

Pure Grid Calendar is good too but you can't see the daily events and the whole calendar at the same time.

lol, so do I! ditto on both apps. Scrollable and color coded events on the home screen. Several batteries later, my Axim x51v is still rocking solid after 5 years!

PIM for Android is an absolute must. Is there something about the android platform that makes this difficult or is Google being overly protective of its serving of life in the cloud. Whatever the reason, I hope the situation is remedied sooner rather than later.

+1 for Gemini. Though it is a beta I haven't found any problems. He is an ACTIVE developer and I'm looking forward to future versions.

I really like the Gemini calendar app too. Right now I'm using it in addition to the Calwidget. If Gemini comes out with a widget, I will use it exclusively.

Default Today app?

To stay topical, I'll add that I've happily been using Jorte for a little over a month now. But what I'm still searching for is a "Today" app/widget that will show me my current day's schedule at a glance.

Any recs for this?

FYI -- The folks over at WebIS are supposedly working on a version of PI for Android.

You should try out the Blik Calendar Widget. It's still in beta, but is very stable, and sounds like it might get you what you want.
