    I am using Jorte calendar 1.3.8 with a Verizon Motorola Droid X running Android 2.2.4.

    I live in Kansas City which is in the Central time zone and my Google calendar is set to show event times in the Central time zone. When I travel to Seattle which is in the Pacific time zone - 2 hours AHEAD of Kansas City time my Verizon phone shows the Verizon system time for where I am so it displays Pacific time - 2 hours AHEAD of Kansas City. When I look at the Jorte calendar on my Droid X all of the event times past and future display 2 hours earlier (Seattle time) than they should display. This is bad as when I want to create new events I have to remember that the existing events are displayed 2 hours earlier than they really are.

    Has anyone had this issue? I looked in the Jorte settings and I can't find any time zone setting. How can I fix this? I thought Jorte just read the Google calendar servers. I have sent emails to Jorte several times with now reply. Thanks.

    Short answer; probably your only hope is to use Pimlical:

    Long answer: this issue hasn't been addressed correctly by Android from the beginning. It has been addressed in the desktop version of Google Calendar:


    and was done correctly in PalmOS and (as I understand it) Blackberry. But not Android, to date.

    Here are some other related links; probably more than you want to know about this topic:
