    Google Calendar now syncs to BlackBerry

    Advertisement



    You can now use Google Sync for mobile to synchronize your BlackBerry handheld with Google Calendar. Simply go to http://m.google.com/sync in your mobile browser to download and install the Google Sync for mobile application. Once installed, simply click on the Google Sync icon, sign in to your Google Account or your Google Apps account, and that's it. The Calendar application on your BlackBerry will always be synchronized with your Google Calendar. You can even edit events or create new ones on the handheld.

    Tried it first thing this morning, works well. Caused duplication for me because I am already using CompanionLink to do the same thing but from first impressions CompanionLink has just been put on the list of software to be removed when the next opportunity arises

    Neat program... but its definitely not working as a two-way sync. So far, only going from Google Calendar to Device... not vice versa.

    I have it setup for automatic sync... and its been on my device since last night.

    We have a conversation about this new app over here. For the most part it works well, but doesn't do a full sync of pre-existing events on the BB over to Google.

    Same goes for me. Anyone figured out how to upload previous calendar events in BB to Google calendar?

    What you can do is export your BB data as CSV files and import them into Google calendar. The thing is that most of the time we are entering appointments into our handhelds and not computer. I'm sure Google will take care of things but in the mean time shoot them an email telling them your concerns, it might get them working a bit harder.

    Re: Google Calendar now syncs to BlackBerry

    Its just giving me an error allong the lines of this programme has been blocked from interprocess communication. It also doesnt show up in the applications bit of security to grant the permission, so i had to grant it globaly to test. And even then it got to the point of logging in as ...@gmail.com but no arrows ever displayed to show data transfer and it never progressed. Hopefully someone at google or blackberry get this fixed soon so i can justify getting an unlimited data package instead of pay as you go bb data, or better yet if it could sync accross wifi without uma setup.

    Finally!!! Works well, but the same problem with existing events. No big deal, though. Now, with this & gcalsynch for outlook, all my calanders share the same events & no matter where I create new events, whether from Outlook, GCal or my BB. Awesome!!!

    Re: Google Calendar now syncs to BlackBerry

    so I have the same issue with past BB events, but no big. Im sure they will fix it soon, and the longer it goes unfixed the less it matters as much.

    Im so excited about this, I thought I would have to wait for the new firmware out to have this feature (as I saw mention of it in some but not all write ups from beta testers). As excited as I am I have a few suggestions already to make this WAY more practical. Again though, not a complainer, I am greatful for what we have so far.

    a) easily identify events from different google calendars. I like knowing my buddy's work schedule, so we share calandars. easy to tell apart on google, but now, if it says, "have testicles laminated" and its a tuesday @ noon, I think, "well damn, why did I schedule it then, I have to work at noon?" Oops, it was my buddy's. This could be as simple as allowing an optional preface of calendar (ie - Joe - Testicale Lamination) or, and likely with required firware change, a color coded system

    b) contacts. we have our gmail, out google calendar, google docs for mobile is, well, its in its infancy but their working on it. why no contacts?

    c) lastly, probably least importantly but still useful, pics. a picassa lite sorta program for our google pics accessed on BB.

    just some thoughts, I look forward to whatever we are given becuase well, its free and useful.
