gCalSync 1.3.0

BoostApps Forum member nishruu found this updated version of gCalSync. The old version had stopped working for me and many others. This one more or less works although it seems to fail to sync a few of my events. I’m trying to figure out if there is a pattern to which ones it syncs and which ones it doesn’t.

It’s open source app that synchronizes Google Calendar with your phone’s built in calendar.  Although it’s buggy and slow it’s the only app of any kind I’ve found that synchronizes the calendar on Motorola iDEN phones with anything.

It asks permission to access user data a half a dozen times every sync with annoying beep each time.  You can eliminate the beeping by switching to a profile that has Volume > Data set to 0.

It only syncs event name,  time and alarm.  It does not sync location or description. This app probably doesn’t work on the CDMA phones. At least it fails on my Rambler wit a  “Authentication Failure…restricted API” error

  4. I don’t know about this version, I still prefer v1.1.1 and it’s still working fine on my Clutch. Set reminders not carrying over to the phone is extremely annoying, but I don’t see the need to view your calendar in this app, or to see all of the code as it’s connecting. v1.1.1 seems faster also. The trick to getting it to sync with your phone’s calendar is to make sure that the event you created in your Google Calendar is not an all day event, but has an actual start time and end time. GCalSync ignores all day events for some reason.

    • Some my events with start and stop times aren’t syncing so there’s something else that keeps them from syncing. Maybe too long a title or description.
