The 1.4.5 was more restrictive in sharing. WebOS 2 is better but it requires permission to be granted. DigiCalendar could show all the events but each application would have to grant us permission and we would have to implement it. Palm doesn't share with anyone.

So for the most part DigiCalendar can only show it's own information. However if you sync google (etc) to MS outlook then we can import it.

Good question, DigiCalendar Pro and several others have been pending for some time. I guess Palm is behind on their review processing.

Palm has published all versions of DigiCalendar. We also have submitted new version which includes various bug fixes that should be available early next week.

Thanks for your patience. We're still playing catch up. Palm's long delays in approving apps isn't helping either.

This next update corrects a lot of issues that were reported to us and even adds a few new features.
  • Search is now available from any view
  • Sound/Vibrate notification alerts

I like some of the ideas in DigiCalendar, but I thought the Pro version was going to be able to access Synergy accounts. The Touchpad catalog still says no Synergy.

While DigiCalendar has some nice features, why would I use a calendar that doesn't utilize one of the main webOS differentiators? My life isn't in a sandbox, why should my calendar?

I think you've done some great work, but as long as this handicap exists, I don't see any reason for me to spend money on this.

Will DigiCalendar ever access Synergy accounts?

DigiCalendar Pad can't access Synergy because of a bug in webOs. Palm is aware of the problem. However, they have not given us any indication when this will be fixed.

The pro version does work with Synergy. However, if you are actually asking can DigiCalendar edit and read events on another calendar like Google then the answer is no. This is a limitation of webOs and out of our hands.

Palm has set up permissions so that one application may not access records from another application without specific permissions being granted. This means if DigiCalendar creates an event then xyz Calendar can't touch it. We would have to specifically grant create, read, update, and delete permissions to each application or grant all permissions to everyone.

The only exception is the Palm calendar. It can access everything on the device because they have given it root access. In fact, we have seen where an even created by our application can be edited by the Palm default apps which their app then takes ownership of that record and we can no longer touch it. This is another bug that Palm is aware of.

This problem has a couple of solutions. The first one is for Palm to grant access to our application. They've basically told us this would never happen. In webOs 2 it is possible to create events but that's it. Palm has really made the synergy data inaccessible. I can point to the documentation that shows the limitations.

The second, is DigiCalendar could be distributed as a homebrew app and with some modifications directly to the Os it could access the information. However, we could never publish it in the app catalog.

The last solution which is what we are working toward is to provide an application, DigiSync, that accomplished the synchronization or it is also possible to create our own connectors where we could synchronize DigiCalendar with Google for example.

our goal is to provide as many features in our applications as posisble. For example, all our apps can (or will) be able to share information between them. We will be integrating Calendar with DigiTask soon. (Pro versions only)

People have been asking for access to the IM messages, call log, etc since version 1. Palm still hasn't provided any method to access this information. Remember, access to the mic just became available in version 2.1 (and later) Bluetooth abilities were just introduced in 2.0!

I understand if the inability to fully modify all the information on the device would be a deal breaker for you. We would love to have that functionality, but it just won't happen until Palm makes those abilities available in webOs.

I just purchased DigiCalendar for my Palm Pre 2 on Verizon running webOS 2.01.
It does not read the stock webOS calendar. It is useless to me until there is a fix.
Another program, Agenda, is able to read and import the calendar info.
If they can do it I don't understand why DigiCalendar cannot.

merphie-thanks for doing this. I don't know if it's been mentioned since it's a long thread, but all of us would like to be able to add invitees to an event. It is a basic necessity of a calendar function for us working people. Naturally, the ability to add invitees from an exchange account would truly be amazing.

thank you

The App Catalog clearly states it can't access Synergy accounts. If you can't be bothered to read the description before buying, that's your problem, nobody else's.

Agenda uses a hack that the author clearly says will be closed. Since webOS 2.x that's happened. Neither Agenda or anything else can access calendar data.

There currently isn't a method to sync between the TouchPad and Pre. Palm has not provided a way to do this.

We are currently working on a sync for MS outlook. We plan to offer a google Calendar synchronization.

DigiCalendar current supports event invites. They are located at the bottom of the event details.

I have notifications on our request. The invites wouldn't work from webOs because there isn't a way to send automated messages. Basically, if you had 10 invites to an event, 10 emails would pop up and you would have to tap send on each one.

However, It is possible to automate these on the MS outlook side.

We've been getting reports from users that the currently published version for the touchpad is locking up on the welcome screen. We believe this error has been caused by Palm publishing a old version of the application.

We've resubmitted the application and asked Palm to push the update through as quickly as possible

No, there's no sync for the touchpad.
