    An app that will take set of dates and times, and install them as events in your calendar. Example: I want to put all 162 dodger games this season into my calendar on my droid, but I don't want to manually put them in one by one.have you heard of something that can do this or something like it? I can't imagine it would be too hard to come up with something like it.

    I don't know of an app, but you can go here
    and download the ical (not the cvs) and then go to
    google calendar, create a new calendar or import it into
    you your default calendar at google.

    Instructions
    Google Calendar
    (Any computer with a web browser)
    Go to http://www.google.com/calendar and sign in. If you do not have a Google Account create one using the link provided at the bottom of the page.
    Click on "Add" in the "Other Calendars" box located at the bottom of the menu on the left.
    Under Add select "Add by URL".
    Copy and paste the URL of the iCalendar file into the pop up window. The new calendar will now appear and is accessible from the My Calendars menu located on the left hand side of the screen.

    if you go into google calendar and go to left hand side there is a part that has "other calenders" hit "add" then "browse interesting calenders" you will find sports and then you can find MLB and then you can find the Dodgers and it will add them to your calender with all the dates and times.

    You have to then select it as a calendar you want to sync on your phone.

    your wrong. it does work. you have to go into your google account on phone and tell it to sync that calendar to phone. Its the simplest way to do it. I have all my favorite teams on there and it works. If it doesnt work for you its cause you dont know what your doing.

    Yes... it won't sync external calendars.

    But what Truk is talking about isn't an external calendar. It's a google calendar that he's follwoing.

    Droid lets you sync any of the google calendars you follow right from the phone.

    The import trick is for calendars that exist outside of Google calendars.


    So you're both right. Now give each other a big kiss to make up.

    Yep, gotta agree that it does not work with the Truk method. You get the cal in google on the web fine, but that calendar is not listed on the Droid to sync.
