Maybe I'm re-tarded, but I'm getting increasingly irritated with this Samsung Calendar app.
Trying to sync Facebook events/birthdays -- something that should be enabled by default isn't.
I followed this:
How do I sync my Calendar on my Samsung Galaxy SŪ III? : US Cellular | Samsung
(and BTW, their site is so broken there you can't even reply. *sigh*)
However, my Samsung Galaxy S4 does not show any other options but "Sync Contacts" under the Facebook account??! Then I realized that you have to manually ADD the "apps for facebook" account which does calendars & gallery. The other one is for "Contacts" only. LAME -- why are they not all under one "account"?
Also, "hide declined events", really should be re-engineered to "show going events" as it is showing events that I have been invited to, but haven't replied any way -- cluttering up my calendar (assuming it even shows all my events).
It is NOT showing FB events correctly. I am seeing events that I have declined still?! And worse, if I "sync" via the calendar menu option, sometimes an event shows up that wasn't there before (yeah!), then if I "sync" again, events disappear (boo!) ?! WTF?!
Am I doing something wrong? Some setting I'm missing? Or do you all just take this abuse and half-ass code? Absolute garbage. How hard can this be so broken after all these years? It's a PDA -- it should at MINIMUM make calls, do sms/mms, calendar, tasks, notes. My 4 year old HTC Evo 4G had all of this seamless. This is supposed to be a cutting edge phone and it can't even do basic stuff right.
Here's another issue. October 26th is my birthday. I know 3 other people have the same birthday (so 4 Facebook birthdays show in FB online). I go to that date in the calendar (and sync) and it shows my birthday (from my local contact info), a "Happy Birthday" (cute) and ONE Facebook birthday -- where are the other 3 FB birthdays?
And don't even get me started on the horrid "wood" brown theme (that you can't even change!). UGH.
Is there a better Calendar app I should be looking into? Just astonishing...
