Android :: Way To Get Upcoming Appointments Onto Homescreen?
May 25, 2010
I'm coming from Windows Mobile (Touch Pro2) and I'm going to miss having my upcoming appointments on the home screen. Is it possible to have this set up? I'm only seeing icons/widgets in all the reviews. The phone I'll be getting will be the EVO 4G. Also, how well does Google Voice implement into Android, is it possible to have an option to either call from my regular cell number or from google voice without going through an app or the website?
Has anyone heard any ideas about upcoming widget releases or how they would be downloaded?offered through the market?sent through updates?I'd like to see a google reader widget, or maybe i wouldn't....i'm not sure, but i know i'd like to see something, i just need someone to tell me.
Anyone hearing any news on upcoming dual core releases. I'm eligible for upgrade on 12-1-10 but if something new is coming out I'd wait a few months. I'm with sprint and would like to stay with them, hoping they will have one of the new dual core releases.
I just purchased this crazy difficult droid 2. I need to set a calender that I can add my appointments to. What is the simplest one? I have tried the one that comes w/the phone but I keep getting the same Error must sync w/calender first. I would say that I'm not a TECKIE.
I can forget my own appointments without help, thank you. I hate having a smart phone alert me of an appointment with a phone call asking "Where there hell are you?" It's a "known issue." How comforting. The only workaround I have found is post-it note on the screen and pencil. My G1 may become a paperweight. If Google has enough resources to have a vice-president for climate change, get into the phone and energy businesses, and be VERY political, perhaps they could apply some of those resources to making Google Calendar dependable. What a joke.
I'm looking for a notes/task app that has a widget that will show me the tasks I have set on my home screen, preferably no bigger than 2x2 or 4x1 Any other apps like that, the newer version of Astrid seems to not work as well as it doesn't display new tasks or will sometimes display them out of order.
Will the addition of 720p video recording in alot of the new upcoming android devices require us to use class 6 or higher microsd cards in order to get any use out of it? I know this is the case for digital camera with HD recording.I am wondering if it is the same with phones?
I put all of my calendar appointments on my Calendar and now it doesn't sync with Google, so can I either move all appointments to the Google Calendar, or can I export the Calendar and re import it to the Google Calendar?
I am fairly new to the Android scene, having just bought my HTC Desire. I am looking for an agenda widget where I can color-code my appointments (for example work related appointments are red, sports blue, family appointments green etc.) In the standard calendar that came with my Desire this is not possible, any suggestions?
Is there anyone aware of any good widget that shows the next upcoming appointments on the homescreen? I have found two and I don't think anyone of them is great. I have tested the standard calender widget and one more that I cant recall the name on. Is there any good widgets in the different Homeapps, like aHome, dxTOP and others?
What is the best calendar app? Is there a calendar app or an addon app that will utilize the alarm in the phone to notify you of upcoming meetings? So far all i can find is ways to email or sms meeting warnings. The incoming sms doesn't get enough attention.
Take this for what it's worth since you're hearing it from me, and not an official link. I understand I could be completely making this up, but I only come here to hopefully give you, my fellow BH2 owners out there something to look forward to. While in TMobile today, I was chatting with the manager who helped me decide on the BH2. It just so happened that his Samsung rep had just left and gave him some good news.
Originally, I thought he had told me the BH2 would be going from 1.5 to 2.x, however, the BH2 has two upcoming changes.
First, we will be getting a minor change to fix the battery issues. The battery indicator will be more accurate, and they will be adjusting some software issues to increase the battery life. Great news. This should be very soon since the reps recently got the email.
Second, and no later than two months away, we will be getting 1.6. Not 2.0 or 2.1. 1.6 is apparently the most stable Android software out there at the moment, which is why 2.1 is still a ways out. Don't expect to ever see 2.0 on your BH2 because 2.0 is terrible software and Tmobile has no intentions of pushing that on their phones. 2.1 will most likely come after 1.6.
This is according to a Samsung rep who received an email from his superiors. Take it for what it's worth, but I am looking forward to the BH2 future. Now BH2 owners will have the best Android phone with stable software. Can't wait!
I need a nice looking widget that I can put on my first homescreen that will show me calender appointments up to 2 weeks in advance. The 1x4 HTC calender widget on my Hero only shows events for today and tomorrow. I have tried Astrid but the widget is ugly. Are there any others? I would ideally like it to use the width of the screen and allow me to scroll through events.
I have read up a lot about rooting my phone, and I think I might give it a go, mainly to get rid of some of the bloatware on the sprint hero, and also for the apps2sd capability. My question is however, how will this effect my ability to update to android 2.1 in the first half of next year. Will I have to wait for a custom ROM to be made or will i be able to update as normal?

I have a Motorola Droid Razr Maxx with an unlimited data plan and I use FoxFi all the time and love it. On FoxFi's (now PDANet) site it states that Android version 4.1 and later is NOT SUPPORTED on Motorola. Their recommendation is "Do not update to Jelly Bean." I understand that this update is going to be pushed to us sometime soon. In the past, my updates have installed automatically without any approval required. I cannot find a setting anywhere to make it stop and ask first. Is there such a setting? Is there a way I can refuse to accept the Jelly Bean upgrade?
The calendar cant do bi-weekly appointments - is there anyway this can be added? Also in the status area at the top of the phone, is there a tool that shows a bar for CPU usage? Finally, is there anywhere where brainstorms/ideas and changes to apps can be raised? Apols i don't know what the official HTC/Android site is. Had a fish but its really not very clear! Is Android a free development OS like maemo or is it owned by google therefore all control goes through them?
Starting on Sunday, I have noticed that I am having appointments missing on my calendar. Actually, it is my wife's calendar that is shared. They are not all missing, only some. Also, I have confirmed on a computer that the appointments are actually there. Is this a new issue? Is there something I can do to remedy it?
When entering an appointment in the diary and want it recurring e.g weekly, there doesn't seem to be any option to limit the time, it seems to go on forever. I would like it to finish on either a date or after a number of weeks, like the diary on my Ipod touch, I tried to jump forward to the date when I wanted it to end and delete/edit the ones forward as a strategy but you only get the option to delete the whole series.
I have imported my calendar from my pc but cannot delete a single event if it has a recurrence. I can only delete all or 'this and all future'. is there any way round this, including any app which may allow it?

I have configured my phone to connect to my Microsoft Exchange server and when the calendar syncs all the appointments are 30 minutes early. I have connected to a second exchange account on a different site and it does the same. I have checked the timezones and they are correct. Also the default purple with black text is drive me nuts so any suggestions on changing this would be great.
I've been using my Desire for a few weeks with the Calendar synced with my Google calendar, which I've added another calendar to through it's URL - this showed my lectures for Uni. Yesterday, my seminars were added to the Uni calendar and so are now automatically on my Google calendar but now, on my phone, the lectures have disappeared and only the seminars are shown... It's all there properly on Google but not my phone so I'm a bit confused.
Probably the only thing I liked about my Windows mobile phone was that it looked at my calendar and if I had an appointment it would mute my phone. I use touchdown for my exchange syncing. Is there software that can do this automatically?
If so, does anybody know which version it's scheduled to be supported in (in built-in Chrome Lite browser)? Also, is it currently supported on any of the alternative browsers for Android like FireFox or Opera Mini?
One of the things I miss the most from my iPhone is being able to dial directly from my Calendar appointments. When I was discussing this in the Android Lounge, some people made it seem like they do that all the time. Does anyone here know if this can be set up some how on the Captivate. Or do you need to use a different calendar or something? By dialing direct I mean you are on the item in your calendar, and you can just click a number in the notes and the dialer comes up without having to copy and pasted the number over to the dialer.
I am thinking of getting an Eris, but am concerned about the calender. I am a therapist and need the calender not only to make reoccurring appointments, but I often need to change one of the occurrences while keeping the rest in tact. Is this possible to do with the Eris? When I went to the Verizon store, they told me the calender wasn't that sophisticated and that I should stick with my Blackberry.
