    I've been using Jorte, and like it, but I seem to have some across a deal-breaker.

    When entering an appointment from the phone, if you just click on "new event", key in the event, and press "done" it puts the event into "My calendar" by default. "My calendar" seems to be something stored only on the phone. It doesn't sync with Google. To get the event into your Google calendar you have to press "show details" and select the relevant calendar from the drop down list under "Calendar."

    The problem is
    (a) it's very easy to forget to do this when quickly entering an appointment, meaning that your new event will be in the wrong calandar and will not sync;
    (b) there is no way of going back into the event and telling which calendar it has been assigned to; and
    (c) even if you realise that you've put the event in the wrong calendar there is no way of going back in and changing it to a different one. You just have to delete it (together with any details or repeat information) and start again from scratch.

    This is driving me a bit mad, because I keep finding the odd event which is not coming up on my Google calendar online for this reason, and I can't afford for this to happen, so I will need to drop Jorte unless I can find a solution.

    Is my analysis above correct, or am I missing something? To solve this there needs to be a way of setting the calendar which new events get dumped to by default, and also a way of easily changing events from one calendar to another without deleting them.

    OK, apparently just me being an idiot! There is a setting called, surprisingly, "Default calendar" which solves one of my problems. But I still can't see any way of editing an event and moving it from one calendar to another.

    Long press the event and select copy. Then select Show Details and pick any calendar. Then delete the old one. Email the developer and he will add this function.

    Thanks, this seems to be a viable workaround.
