Is it possible to sync KO/PI with ical? It seems like KO/PI is much nicer then the built in aps.

Yes, in a roundabout way.

KO/Pi syncs beautifully with iCal's .ical files. If you have only one iCalendar, you're in luck. Unfortunately, I have iCalendars for several different categories (Work, Recreation, Holidays), which results in several different .ical files in my Calendars folder.

To sync I drag and drop the updated .ical files to my Zaurus' SD. Then I sync to each local file from the KO/Pi options menu, using the "ask on conflict" setting. Moving the files takes about ten seconds and each sync another few seconds on top of that. It isn't one-click, but I can say that all the events and tasks on my iBook are also on my Z -- without the hassle of duplicates and overwritten entries.

If you only want to sync with one calendar, it works pretty well.

KO/Pi provides a method to automatically run commands immediately before and after a sync; you set it to download your iCal calendar using scp before the sync, KO/Pi then syncs with the copied file, and finally you copy the file back to your mac with scp.

It might be a bit difficult to setup at first, especially if you're not familiar with ssh, but once you get it running it seems to work pretty well.

What about going the other way: Moving KoPi events & ToDos to ical?
