...and because of most of the issues cited herein is why I uninstalled the [size=]not-ready-for-prime-time[/size] Agenda app.

I installed the app, but when I run it, it insists that I sign in to my Google account. I don't use Google Calendar or Contacts, and the apps I currently use - Business Calendar and the stock Calendar app - don't need access to my Google account. I don't understand why Agenda does need it.

As I'm currently using the Gemini without using my Google account, it looks like I'll have to give Agenda a miss until / unless Planet change this feature / bug  Which is a shame, because from the reviews I have seen it looks good.

It needs an account to sync with it does not need to be a google account.  I  use DavDroid on the gemini to sync contacts and calander with fastmail.uk via CalDAV once installed DAVDroid just appears as a account.  There are quite a few providers using CalDAV or you can always set up your own OwnCloud server if you really want to.

See below Google a/c is for playstore Davdroid for calander and contacts on Fastmail.

Ok, this one I'm somewhat puzzled that no one else has commented on yet:

[size=]It's totally impossible to enter a location, unless you use the location service, or the search results in the location tab!![/size]

I'm usually using "special" names for my locations, like "Home", "Work", or a special name (could be anything, but I KNOW where that is, and don't need to have an actual address or longer description of it...). So that one, in my opinion is, totally stupid, and given their effort to give us multiple boot-options etc., quite surprising. It could be nice to be able to use the search or Google maps (I probably wouldn't use Google maps anyway...), but to not give us the opportunity to just enter a location ourselves is, like I just said, plain stupid!

I'm not (as far as I know...) syncing with anything, and am not using Google Calendar, and it seems Agenda should work without syncing (except for to-do's, which demands to connect to the Planet sync...) or access to a Google account. I do have a Google account set up on my Gemini, but it works without syncing to Google Calendar. (I have just tried to turn of all data-transmission, and the Agenda app at least starts up, and seems to work as usual.)

But I just got another strange bug: When copying an event, and then pasting it, it got a start (and end) time 1 minute earlier than the original event???

And to add to my rather long list of problems from an earlier post in this thread:
  • I got an event that has "invisible" description (thought it was because it was to long, but have made a few tries, and am unable to reproduce it now...)
  • On the edit "screen" you only see one digit for number of weeks repetition..
  • Hopelessly slow... (I have been poking at the screen for probably close to half a minute, and maybe longer, feeling like a complete idiot, before it responds)
  • Pressing spacebar to toggle a setting doesn't work everywhere...
  • It is not possible to press the date in week view to go to that particular date, and generally "choosing" a date is difficult without also opening an entry that day
  • Now real way of just VIEWING an entry, you just open it up in edit mode (where you don't have all the information on "one page" either...)
  • There seems to be ZERO possibilities to alter the look of the widget...
  • There is no way of viewing location of an event?? (Other than opening for edit...)
  • The "In month view I get a new item generated, without the possibility to enter anything in it, when pressing enter... (An empty entry at noon, but I seem to SOMETIMES get the possibility to edit it too.)" from my previous post seem to come from a wrongful detection of TWO enter-presses, and can probably happen in any view. I just had the opposite problem in week view; I couldn't open an item properly, it just popped up and disappeared again when trying to open with enter...
Just to add a little gripe about Calengoo too: It isn't possible to navigate with arrow-keys, and there is no way of opening/viewing/editing an item from the week view (at least I can't get it to work...)

I have now edited (manually) all the missing entries from my vcs-ics conversion. (It seems it would be difficult to get the recurring events over properly. Some searches claimed that vcs-files doesn't have the ability to contain recurring event, but looking at the files it seems to be wrong: The recurring events are stored as one event, but with multiple time/dates in vcs-files. And a curious fact: If a recurring event is created, and you then delete the first entry, from the vcs-file THAT entry is still carried over to the ics-file!?!) So I've been going over almost 12 years of entries, but fortunately only the last 4 or 5 years I've been using recurring events. But it still took some hours!

As reported in other threads in forum here, the very responsive Calengoo developer responded to requests from some Gemini users for keyboard shortcuts to take advantage of having physical keyboard. He quickly updated the program to do this and offered a beta version for any of us to test out for him and report back with comments.

I tested program and provided feedback. Dev very quickly responded with a revised beta of Calengoo and asked me to test it. Did that and had some additional comments. Dev again very quickly responded with a new beta and asked me to try it again. This happened a few more times. Each time he responded at lightning speed. Very impressed.

Been extremely busy at work lately, so, haven't had time to see if he released a new version of Calengoo with the keyboard shortcuts included.

If any of you are interested in this, please email dev expressing your interest in the beta or release version if it's ready for release.

Found it to be a very good program with the keyboard shortcuts.

The Planet program is definitely 'half baked', if you know what I mean.....but looks nice.

Just my 2¢....

YMMV

Which is somewhat my reason for posting my "gripe" with Calengoo here as well; I knew there where some people already in contact with the developer, and was hoping some of them might forward the "problems" to him...

Think I will just wait for the new version. Unless Planet gets out an update which fixes most of the bugs pretty quick, I will need something else that WORKS in the meantime...
