Lots of updates at the moment I know!
This one’s to provide a workaround for issues some people have been having on Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab devices, where events added on the phone or tablet don’t sync to Google Calendar.
The workaround is a new setting: “Edit in built-in calendar”. Check this and you’ll be able to use the Samsung calendar to add/edit/view events, which means they’ll sync to Google Calendar correctly.
Note: I don’t recommend using this setting for any other devices.
New version of Touch Calendar just released:
- adds an option to remove the settings icon from the widget
- adds ‘Zoom to date’ to the context menu (tap-and-hold on a date)
Note: Version 1.0.4 fixed a minor bug to do with new event times that was introduced in 1.0.3
Touch Calendar Free is a fully usable app, but from now on development is focused on the full version, so all new features and most fixes will go there.
Here are the things the full version of Touch Calendar has that the free version doesn’t:
- Home screen widgets (4×1, 4×2, 4×3, 4×4 sizes; resizable in Android 3.1)
- Translations: French, German, Italian, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, Simplified Chinese.
- More colour schemes (including a dark theme, and also ‘orange and white’, ‘orange and blue’, ‘green and white’, ‘purple and white’, ‘pink and white’, ‘purple and green’)
- The quick calendar selector – a popup window that lets you quickly turn calendars on and off
- ‘Zoom to date’ from the context menu (tap-and-hold on a date) in the main app, or just by double-tapping
- ‘Duplicate event’ feature
- Search in the description field
- Search integrates with the Android quick search box
- Time format options
There’ll be much more added to this list soon, so I’ll keep this post up to date as things get released.
This new version adds a settings screen with several options to the widget:
- set how many weeks are displayed
- set how far in the past the widget starts displaying (how many “past weeks”)
- set the starting day
- set the font size
Also added two new colour schemes: “orange and white” and “orange and blue”.
Also, an ‘Add event’ option has been added to the main app menu. This is in addition to the usual way of adding an event, by tap-and-hold on a date.
Finally a small bug where the ‘@’ symbol could appear on its own when ‘Show location’ was turned on has been fixed.
With the launch of the new Android Market website, you can now install apps from the web, including Touch Calendar and Searchify.
