Known drawbacks and limitations

1. Android has some built-in rare faults where the Android accounts becomes "out of sync". Often it helps to just wait a few hours and the syncing is starting again. If the device calendar data is becoming “out of sync”, this can be corrected with the menu function for re-sync.

2. On very small displays (e.g. QVGA-240x320, as on Sony Ericsson X10 mini pro) the text font is readable but a bit fuzzy. The text size is primary intended for medium/large displays.

3. It seems like there is a restriction when using account types of type "Active Sync" that prevents searching successfully for words contains national characters (e.g. å/ä/ö). The result is that our application does not return any search hits for such words. The error is probably caused by Googles active sync functionality, since performing the same search on standard Google calendar accounts works well.

4. Syncing with Google accounts older than ~6-12 months does not work. This seems to be a limitation (for performance reasons) in the built-in Android functions used for syncing with Google calendar. This is unfortunately out of our control: it is a design decision made by Google. Previously it was possible to use ActiveSync with Google calendar (m.google.com) but Google have removed that possibility for standard Google personal accounts. Note that repeating events (e.g. birthdays from the contact book) seem to be synchronized also for very old events.

5. We do not support manual synchronization using a "sync button". Instead we recommend automatic synchronization being activated on your device, which is the basic idea of an Android device: The calendar account should be synchronized in the background to have the data constantly up-to-date. If you want to synchronize manually, instead turn on/off automatic synchronization, or press the sync/update button using your standard calendar. That will update data also within our application. A third way is to use a "local calendar account" (often called "My calendar" or "PC sync"). Such account is not syncing at all, just storing your events locally, until you use a third-party program (e.g. Kies from Samsung) to sync your device with a PC using USB/Bluetooth.
