    Sync Blackberry w/ Google Calendar - GCALSYNC

    Advertisement





    Gina touched on Google Calender with Blackberry a while back now GCalSync allows you to carry your Google Calendar in your pocket! GCalSync will allow two-way synchronization between Google Calendar and your phone's built-in calendar. Download events to your Blackberry, or add an event on your BB and upload it to Google Calendar.



    To install, visit http://wap.gcalsync.com with your Blackberry's browser.

    Sweet. I never really used the BB calender because I couldn't use it other than on the Blackberry, and I never used Google, cause it's hard as hell to navigate on the BB. Best of both worlds indeed. Thanks.

    Re: Sync Blackberry w/ Google Calendar - GCALSYNC

    I tried this earlier on my 7100r. Not a fan.

    #1 - When it synced for the first time, all of the stuff that was moved from BB to Gcal or the other way around, had the times all messed up. I was assuming this has something to do with time zones. BB is MST, and so is Gcal, but I have a strange belief that it's referencing everything to Norway time (where the guy who wrote the program is).


    #2 - Some items in the BB cal which were "day long" events with 0 min duration showed up in Gcal as being 24 hour events.

    #3 - The time thing mentioned above was annoying enough to mention twice.

    #4 - Being that I use Outlook at work on the BES, which is updated wirelessly, and my primary use for the BB cal is for work, having Gcal sync isn't a big deal. Plus, there is only 1 calendar on the BB. If there was support for multiple calendars, that would be ideal. Then I could have a work cal and a home cal and keep the two separate. Work would sync with BES, and home would sync with Gcal.

    #5 - Calendar events marked as "private" in BB and Outlook were made public on Gcal.

    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-

    Don't get me wrong. I think it's a great little app to sync with Gcal. But for my needs and use, it's just not what I'm looking for.

    Google's calendar was setup for those who were either not on a BES or didn't want to use the native BB calendar. I chose it because I'm not on a BES.

    I kept getting an error message during the sync process, so I gave up and deleted it off my BB!

    I tried it and I had too much problems with sync failing so I deleted it since it was wasting my time.

    I couldn't get it to work either. I deleted it too. Maybe the next update will be better.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    I'm having sync issues too. When I go to test, it says Java IO error, too many http connections open... I tried rebooting the BB, no other programs open, no IM, no browser, yet still, same error. I tried messing with the TCP settings, tried everything, no avail.

    Has anyone tried emailing the author? I'm going to drop him a letter when I get home today. I'd really love it if this worked... Of course with Googles SMS notifications, I do get by for now.
