New Droid user. Is there any alternative to using Google Calendar on the Droid? My reasons for wanting this are below. The underlying problem is a Google Calendar issue, but Google has been so unresponsive to direct inquires about this on their web site that I am now asking here.
I find that Google Calendar refreshes subscribed calendars way to infrequently for my use. Google's online info says refresh occurs "every few hours" and they are considering a manual refresh option. However, some of my subscriptions didn't refresh for four days. I finally gave up and deleted/reentered the subscriptions by including a dummy variable in the url, which apparently "fooled" Google Calendar into thinking it was looking at a different webcal feed. The reentered calendar showed updates that had occurred during the four day interval since initial synching.
This behavior makes Google Calendar unusable for me. In turn this makes the Droid calendar function unusable for me unless I can free myself from Google Calendar. Is there any alternative to using Google Calendar on the Droid? As far as I can see everything must funnel through Google Calendar. Is there any app that reads webcal feeds directly without interference from Google Calendar? Is this even possible for some enterprising software developer?
