FAQ: Help, all my calendar entries just disappeared!

May 30th, 2011 2 comments

If all your events just recently disappeared from Touch Calendar, this is not the app’s fault. Your calendar data is stored in the Android calendar database not by Touch Calendar, so it’s not possible for the app to lose your data. There seems to be a Google Calendar issue at the moment causing the data to disappear from some phones – Google is looking into it, see here for details: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Calendar/thread?hl=en&tid=76214c659d3af880

If this happens to you, you may find your events are still present on Google Calendar on the web. Check at http://google.com/calendar.

Feature spotlight: repeating events in Touch Calendar

May 21st, 2011 2 comments

Touch Calendar makes it easy to add custom repeating events including biweekly events, monthly events, and events that happen every Tuesday and Thursday.

To add a repeating event in Touch Calendar, start adding an event in the usual way (tap-and-hold on a date or use the ‘Add event’ menu item). Then scroll down in the add event screen to see the ‘Repetition’ heading. Under that you’ll see a drop-down box with options as shown here.

Adding a biweekly event

A biweekly event

To add a biweekly event, you should select the “Every x weeks” option. Then you’ll see further options appear below the drop-down box, after you how often in weeks you want the event to repeat, and if you want to set an end date for the repetition.

An event every Tuesday and Friday

Settings for an event on selected days of the week

Alternatively, if you want to have an event repeat every Tuesday and Friday, you should select the “On selected days every week” option. You’ll then see a series of checkboxes appear for you to select which days you want the event to occur on, and again to allow you to set an end date.
