  • browse your daily events

Gcal is compatible with all MIDP2.0/CLDC1.0 handsets: basically, if you have a phone supporting Java, you can most probably use Gcal. If you don’t know if your phone supports them and want to be sure, you should check the device manufacturer website.

If you have successfully tested Gcal on another device, please report it to info@jappit.com, so that I can add your phone to this list. Similarly, if you’re experiencing problems in getting Gcal running on a mobile phone, pleease report them together with the details of the device (brand, model, phone operator) and of the experienced issues.
