Why do I need to "refresh" default calendar to get Jorte to update?

    I am using Google Sync to sync my Outlook on my desktop to my Google calendar on my phone. I am using Jorte to view my calendar on my phone.

    Whenever I make a change on my desktop in Outlook (or even in Google Calendar online), the only way I seem to be able to get it on Jorte fairly quickly is to go to default calendar on Droid, choose "refresh" option", then go back to Jorte calendar and make sure it is there.

    1) Does Jorte have its own "refresh" option?

    2) Why do I even need to do this?

    I now use a new strategy for using Jorte and outlook.
    I no more use Google Sync for synchronising Jorte and outlook. As it appears there is an implicit sync between Jorte and the standard Android agenda, I use the standard HTC Sync application with the USB cable to synchronise the phone and the PC. I use Jorte as my agenda and the Android agenda is only used as an hidden bridge between the phone and the PC. I no more use Google Agenda because I had problems between Google Agenda and outlooK.
    The advantage is HTC Sync not only sync the agenda but also the contacts.
    I don't know if this strategy is applicable on other phones than HTC (Desire).
    However, as you, I noticed that the sync between Jorte and the default calendar takes some time (less a minute), but I do nothing manually so it seems to be automatic.
    I hope this helps.

    Yes, I finally dumped Google Sync (too many issues) and am now liking how seamlessly HTC Sync works for my calendar and contacts. Overall, I am pretty happy with it...until something better comes along! :)
