Why Samsung made the stupid move of creating their own calendar and task app on the Android OS when Google has perfectly good calendar and tasks apps that run on HTC phones is beyond me.
I asked the Samsung tech if there was an S-Planner API so that third party Android App Developers could find a way to sync S-Planner to some other cloud based task system. I was told to go try to find a developer forum online. WTF.
Anyway, here's my problem and let me know if there's a solution:
The onboard voice control app allows me to create Events and Tasks. Those Events and Tasks end up on the S-Planner Calendar and Task app and widget. The S-Planner Events sync up seamlessly to Google Calendar but, obviously for reasons explained above, S-Planner Tasks does not sync to Google Tasks, Toodledo or RTM (or any online task management website for that matter.)
So I'm looking for one of the following:
1. A good app that will sync S-Planner to Google Tasks, Toodledo, RTM or any online task management website.) Toodledo preferably but beggars can't be choosers.
2. A way to completely circumvent the S-Planner and use voice control to input voice dictated tasks into Google Calendar and Google Task apps instead of S-Planner.
2.1 .And if there's a way, then a way to replace the Calendar icon in the static menu bar at the bottom of the touch screen on every page with a Google Calendar icon.
I am using a Samsung Galaxy Note (SGH-I717.)
Thanks in advance for whatever ingenious answers you might have for me and others in this Samsung disappointment haze.
You would think after all this time that SOMEONE would have made a phone that can sync tasks with Google Calendar Tasts. I mean, c'mon. How hard can this be? As it is, I am forced to get a third party app to do this. I use gTasks
. It syncs up with Google Calendar Tasks, just not S Planner.
