      Thank you for these initial votes! It seems that syncing is by far the most desired feature on Gcal :)

      In some way this is something I didn’t expect, for 2 reasons:

      • there are some syncing solutions, implemented in Java ME, that already do a good job of syncing the local calendar with Google Calendar
      • Gcal is some way should “substitute” the need of syncing the 2 calendar, since it gives you access to Google Calendar in every moment

      Probably, having Gcal working also offline could be an intermediate solution that could fit the same needs, what do you think about it?

      Hi aston,

      thank you for your feedback. BlackBerry support is one of the poll’s options, so let’s vote it to push onto the next release :)

    Gcal update: version 0.3.5 with manual timezone setting 

    After a while far from Gcal development (due to a lot of undercover work :) ) here is a new update for the Java ME Google Calendar client, specifically released to fix the different timezone issues that various users are reporting.

    With version 0.3.5 it’s now possible to manually set the preferred timezone from the application Settings screen. To do so, you have 2 choices:

    • If you want to use the timezone sent by Google Calendar server, you can set to “Yes” the “Use server timezone?” option
    • If you want to explicitly set your timezone, then set the previous option to “No“, and then specify your timezone offset in the “Timezone” field

    If you have problems with timezone in your GCal client, then you should definitely update. Just update from within GCal (“Options” -> “More..” -> “Check updates”), or download version 0.3.5 from here:

    JAD file is also available for download here: Gcal JAD download.

      Thank you thank you thank you!!!!

      One other request–is there a way to make it able to see a month view at a time? Or can it do that now and I just don’t know how?

      Thanks so much!!!

      in an n70 when it comes to loading the calendar closes the program automatically or gives the error java.io.IOException: -36
      ¿¿¿One of the questions is whether the program works offline or if there is to be connected?

    • Louis de Lange 11:06 pm on May 12, 2009 Permalink

      Phone: Samsung SCH-R610. Version 0.3.3 used to work. Then it stopped working. When I try to enter my password the text window on the phone allows me to input my full password, but when I accept the password and the screen returns back to the gcal login screen it only shows the first 5 character of the password. Obviously google won’t allow me to log in without the full password. Upgraded to 0.3.5, but same problem.

      and “Exit” button.
      I can push “Cancel” / “Ok” button….

      I’m not able to download the jad part using the provided link.

      By the way: do you foresee to have an “edit event” functionality


    • pit 2:48 pm on June 3, 2009 Permalink

      Hi all,

      @Laura: month and week views are planned, and should be included in a future release. Cannot give precise timeplan about it :(

      @morguena: thanks for your feedback, I’ll check your issue and let you know what I find. GCal works online. Browing events offline would be a nice functionality, but it is not currently implemented.

      @Louis de Lange: unfortunately this is a known issue, but I currently have not a fix for it. I’m actually working on it, and hope to have good news asap :) The five ‘*’ are only for security purposes, to avoid displaying the exact length of the typed password.

      @s t: unfortunately I have not that device to make tests, but I’ll check if I can find a fix for it.

      @Nuno Gomes: which error do you get when downloading the JAD? Edit functionality is surely planned, hope to include it in a very next release!

      Hi Pit

      I’ve just installed this version on my Nokia N97 (previously had an E90), and all day events are showing up in the following day’s events list, saying “To All Day” (which is a strange phrase in itself).

      I’m pretty sure this didn’t used to happen on the previous version of GCal which was installed on my old phone.

      Then I realised that Use server timezone was set to No with Timezone +01:00 by default (I think the default should be to use it, as it was in previous versions where you had no choice). Setting Use server timezone to Yes fixed the problem. Presumably with a manual offset of +1, gCal thought All Day finishes at 1:00am?


    • Marty 8:49 pm on October 27, 2009 Permalink

      Love the GCal app but 0.3.5 doesn’t handle Eastern Time Zone “All-Day” events correctly.
      I have an all day event for 10/30 and it shows on 10/29′s list of events. Doesn’t matter what settings I use it will not work correctly. I have it set to be -04:00 and the times show correctly on regular events but the AllDay event is wrong. My Google calendar is set for Eastern GMT-05:00 but if I change Gcal to that my times are off an hour.

    • menetekel 11:37 am on November 13, 2009 Permalink

      Hi Pit, thanks for this GREAT app.

      One question: when I add a new event to my calendar from the app, it does not create a reminder for the it on Google, even though this is set as default on the website. Any way to fix this, please.

      Many thanks,


    • ffffff 1:31 pm on December 19, 2009 Permalink

    • pit 10:18 am on December 21, 2009 Permalink

      Hi all,

      thank you for your precious feedback!

      @Thomas: not yet, will check it out for including them in a future release

      @Grigory: are you creating an event on your personal calendar, or on a shared one?

      @Julie: not noticed yet, but I’ll try to reproduce your problem and see what could be the cause

      @Marty: I’m working to fix this, will release an update as soon as it properly works

      @menetekel: do you refer to mail/sms reminders? Actually, there’s no explicit support yet, but will be surely added in one of the next updates

      Elros: thanks, should be fixed now :)

    • Matt 5:59 pm on January 14, 2010 Permalink

      Is there a way to create repeating events in Gcal?

    • Brandon 11:14 pm on September 30, 2010 Permalink

      This is still a great application that I use quite often.

      The only glitch I have found so far is…
      If Use server timezone = Yes, the correct timezone is used for the primary calendar, but additional calendars do not seem to use the server timezone, so events show at the incorrect time or as All Day.
      If you set Use server timezone = No, and set the timezone manually, then all calendars show the correct time.

      Please continue developing this app! :)

    • Hermano 11:23 pm on December 10, 2010 Permalink

      Hi, there is anyway to setup reminders when creating an event? It would be really nice.

    Gcal update: version 0.3.4 to fix login errors 

    Here’s a small update to Gcal, that will hopefully fix (or help to fix) the login errors that some users still encounter on specific devices.

    Give it a try and, if you still get error messages while logging in, leave a comment here specifying the exact message you get. Thanks! :)

    • Marcus 2:49 pm on March 22, 2009 Permalink

      This is a really useful piece of software!
      I have one problem on my N95, however, some of the appointments (but not all of them) are one hour earlier than they should be. This is sadly a major problem since it is not the same for all appointments :)
      Is this a problem you are aware of?

      Thank you so much for the software however!

    • Dirk Kotze 11:03 am on March 23, 2009 Permalink

      Hi. Thank you for fixing the errors. Another small thing, the event times are only displayed in GMT time, which doesn’t make sense for myself (workin on GMT+2hr time). Otherwise, well done and thank you.

    • Cliff 7:48 pm on March 23, 2009 Permalink

      Hey — looks like a great piece of software.

      I’m getting an error message when I try and download the software from the .jad link through the Samsung Instinct M800 browser. It goes to the download screen, I hit “continue download,” and I receive the following text:

      cmq appena scaricato e installato sul mio touch hd (rom xor nextgen 1.0). funziona alla perfezione tranne che per il già citato problema dell’orario, se ho un appuntamento segnato alle 16.30, il tuo gcal mi indica 14.30. una volta che lo si sa ci si puo’ gestire di conseguenza, ma penso anche che se il bug sia una seccatura :P

      @Chris: unfortunately, I have not a workaround for this issue right now. I should work on a proxy server, but it’s surely not a fast solution :(

    • Alfie 12:36 pm on April 2, 2009 Permalink

      This application is very useful

      Is it possible to add a reminder when setting up an event. I can’t seem to figure this one out.

      If not is it something that could be added, or even use the users default notification settings to automatically add a reminder to an event.


    • Laura 10:37 pm on April 9, 2009 Permalink

      Hi–This is a great app! The only problem for me (I’m using a Lg Vu CU920) is I need the correct time zone. All the times in my calendar are 4 hours later than they should be. I’m assuming they are in Pacific Time, and I need them in Eastern. Unfortunately, I can’t use it for my calendar until that gets fixed–but I’m SOOO looking forward to it!!

      Thanks for all the effort!

    • ivan 1:50 pm on April 14, 2009 Permalink

      hi, I’m sorry to say I cannot login, neither can try it. I mean, in the Account data page I can write my e-mail adress and also the password buy I can’t (or just I don’t know) how to login.

      I see the login command in the down-left part of the screen but I can’t make it works.

      I have a BlackBerry 8320.

      thank you.

      Hi I have a Sony C510 and I am able to enter my email address but, when I enter p/w, it does not pick up all the characters and thus, I cannot log in.

    • blackadder1st 1:56 pm on September 14, 2009 Permalink

      Same as Byron. I have a 9 figure password but when I ‘OK’ it only shows 5 *s. When I click on Login, it sits at Logging In at the top right corner for ever, and doesn’t actually log in. I am using a CECT i9 3G phone on O2 network if it makes any difference.

      The lack of calendar on the i9 phone is one of its major letdowns, so if I could just get GCal working and sync my calendar, I’d have my ‘iPhone’.


    • pit 2:01 pm on September 14, 2009 Permalink


      @blackadder1st and @byron: only 5 ‘*’ characters are displayed as a security practice, but all the password characters are correctly used when logging in. So, the login issue is probably related to something else.

      Since I have not these devices, I have to get them to test GCal on, and spot out which are the issues.

      Will keep you updated :)

    Gcal version 0.3.3: more fixes and S60 1st/2nd edition support 

    After some days away from Gcal, due to a lot of work going on in these days, here’s an update that will hopefully solve some of the issues related to accessing your calendar data, and various other bugs, including:

    • Wrong saving of “All day” events
    • Wrong time of events saved on device calendar
    • Various other unhandled Exceptions that were causing crashes of the application

    In this release, a first support for previous Nokia Series60 editions (specifically: 1st and 2nd editions) has also been added, so you should now be able to use Gcal on your beloved Nokia 6600 :)

    And, for those who still experience problems, more meaningful error messages have been set, so that it’ll be easier to spot out and solve the issues. So, when reporting a problem, please also add the exact error message you get in the related error popup. Thanks! :)

    If your mobile phone also needs a JAD file, you can download it from here: download Gcal JAD.

      Hi CRiley,

      I’ve added the JAD file as well, thanks for the hint!


    • Julie 12:43 pm on March 23, 2009 Permalink


      Thanks for the update. However, I don’t think I’ve ever successfully installed an update using gCal’s own Update option :-(

      I have automatic checking turned off, but chose to manually check for updates when I saw the posting about the new version. It downloaded OK, asked if I wanted to update from version x to version y, asked if I wanted to save data, but failed at the final step, just saying “Failed to install!” (or words to that effect – sorry if I haven’t got the exact message).

      After that, I could no longer run gCal.

      I downloaded it manually from the link and tried to install manually. Identical problem.

      The only way I could complete the update was to reboot my phone, and then manually download from the web link and install again.

      I have a Nokia E90, S60 3rd edition.

      Thanks for adding the day name at the top of the screen – it’s a big improvement.

      I was a bit surprised to find there’s no option to edit an appointment – but maybe I’m just missing something? I had an appointment that I realised I needed to change, so being unable to find an edit option, I thought I’d duplicate and then delete the original, but Options | Actions | Duplicate just sits there and does nothing (it doesn’t dismiss the dialog box or anything). All I can do is press Cancel. Select/OK do nothing.

      Having had that problem, I’ve tried all the other options available from an appointment to see what happens for me:

      Add comment works, and View comment works, but if I try to View a comment immediately after adding it (i.e. without exiting the event), it says No comments for this event.

      Send via SMS works.

      Copy to Calendar prompts for calendars, but tells me “There was an reror while copying the event”.

      Save locally asks “Allow application Gcal to write user data?” However, whatever I answer, I can “Error while saving even on local calendar” (This message makes sense if I allowed it to, but it couldn’t, but I shouldn’t see it if I say No to Allow application …
      The event really DOESN’T get copied to my local calendar.

      Delete prompts with an “Do you want to delete this event?”, but then say yes, I see a “Deleting” progress report in the top right hand corner, but then I get an error message “There was an error while trying to delete this event (409)” – and checking with the computer, the event hasn’t been deleted.

      All of these tests were done on the same event without exiting the event at all.

      NB: Exiting the event and selecting it again allowed my just-added comment to be seen.

      Can’t see an About menu option to report a version number, but Check Updates says my version is up to date ;-).

    I’ve been working hard on the new Gcal version, that will be hopefully released in the very next days.

    Since there is still some available time, if you would like to see some new features in the next version, this is your chance to say it!

    Meanwhile, let me thank you all for your precious feedbacks and suggestions, that helped me a lot in debugging and improving Gcal! Yet a lot needs to be done, so keep it up :)

    Gcal update: version 0.2 released! 

    NEW: check out the new Gcal 0.3 version!

    Holidays are gone, but gifts are not! So, here’s a big update to Gcal, the J2ME Google Calendar client: version 0.2 is available for download!

    Thanks to your precious support and feedback a lot of improvements and bug fixes have been done: thank you all (and please don’t stop :) )!

    New features of this version include:

    • Check for updates and auto-update features: you can now manually check for updates, or switch on auto-updates (from Settings screen) to always get the latest Gcal releases!
    • More control over events: delete, duplicate and copy an event from a calendar to another in a snap!
    • Comments: It’s now possible to add and view comments for an event
    • More event details: event visibility (private/public) and available/busy status now available when creating an event
    • Map viewing: different types of maps have been added, so you can now switch among satellite/terrain and other views
    • Sending an event, with his details, via SMS

    Important bugs fixed in this release:

    • Character encoding: terrible lack of first versions, character encoding should now correctly work
    • Wrong time when creating/showing events, with some timezones
    • Events order sometimes scrambled
    • Wrong login error messages: now, different types of errors are correctly handled
    • Calendars filter sometimes resetted without changing the account
    • Different types of errors and Exceptions when receiving events (e.g.: on Nokia S40 devices)

    Many other minor fixes have been done, so it’s highly recommended to upgrade your Gcal to 0.2 version. As always, for any kind of feedbacks or bug report, please leave a comment here :)

      Still having problems on the INQ1. The app loads fine, and I enter my details, but it gives the error: ‘There was an error while loading calendar data’.

      Great app! I’ve been looking for a j2me google calendar app for quite some time.

      I have a suggestion:

      For those of us who would (either by choice or policy) like to use the application on a blackberry instead of Google Sync, could you provide key mapping to the numeric keypad?

      Something like:
      2 = up
      8 = down
      4 = left
      6 = right

      • = left soft key
      1. = right soft key

      I ask because my 8130 can emulate the left soft key, but can’t figure out how to emulate the right soft key .

      Hi all!

      @Jack: unfortunately I have not an INQ1 device to test on. Anyway, I’ll dig more into this problem and let you know.

      @Rick: thanks for your appreciation! You’re right: BlackBerry key mapping is not perfect right now. I’ll try to integrate your precious hint into next Gcal versions.

      Thank you all!

      A follow up on my earlier suggestion:

      The absolute easiest way to implement bb support (and isn’t the easiest usually the best) is to trap the right convenience key (keycode: -19) in addition to the other right soft key keycodes on other devices.

      You already trap the bb left convenience key with keycode -21 ;)

      Very useful app. Maybe I’m just blind, but is there any way to show more than one day at a time? If not, that’s my number one suggestion for additions.

      I’d love to be able to see one week at a time, either Monday-Sunday or starting with the current day. One month as well would be stellar. I’m not necessarily looking to see every detail of every event for every day, just something like a small mark showing that there are events scheduled for that day would be great. Then the user could go to the specific day for details.

      Hi all!

      @Rich: thanks for the hint! Will surely use it for the next Gcal version :)


    • Yukone 9:42 am on January 21, 2009 Permalink

      Loading error too for me. I have a lg secret. What a pity. :(

    • Julie 11:44 am on January 26, 2009 Permalink

      I’ve just realised there’s another missing function that I use a lot: the ability to copy a calendar item.

      Typically, I’ve just completed an appointment, and book a repeat one for another day.


    • pit 11:50 am on January 26, 2009 Permalink


      @Yukone: I must get some Lg phones to do some tests. Meanwhile, can you please specify where you get the loading error?

      @Julie: the item copy feature is available in version 0.2. When you are in event detail view, just click “Options” -> “Actions”: there you have both “Copy to calendar” and “Duplicate” functions, that should be what you’re looking for :)


    • Julie 7:44 pm on January 26, 2009 Permalink

      Apoliges Pit. I missed the option under edit for duplicating.


    • Yukone 12:38 pm on January 27, 2009 Permalink

      It gives me loading error when trying to load calendar data

    • pit 12:59 pm on January 27, 2009 Permalink


      @Julie: no problem at all :)

      @Yukone: thanks for the feedback, I’ll dig into this and let you know

    • Steve 10:50 am on January 29, 2009 Permalink

      Program is great but all my appointments are showing as ‘all day’ and not showing the appointment times. Am I doing something wrong or do I need to configure something ?

    • aston 7:42 am on January 31, 2009 Permalink

      Blackberry 7290: Error while connection to Google.

      Blackberry 8800:There was an error while loading canlendars data.

      can not use.

    • pit 9:12 pm on February 1, 2009 Permalink


      thank you all for your feedbacks!

      @Steve: it seems like some timezone issues are still there.. can you please tell me your local timezone?

      @aston: BlackBerry is still not yet fully tested (due to lack of devices :)), but next version should be greatly improved this way.


    • aston 5:40 am on February 2, 2009 Permalink

      @Pit Thank you.

      Everyday I come here to see the new version;

    • aston 5:47 am on February 2, 2009 Permalink

      @Pit can u twitter?

      and we can follow u with your new status.

    • pit 10:28 am on February 2, 2009 Permalink

      Hi aston!

      Sure, I’ll post on Twitter future Gcal updates, so It’ll be easier to follow for all :)

      If you’re a FaceBook user, you can also check Gcal page, to be always updated and to share your thoughts and feedback with other Gcal users:


    • aston 7:35 am on February 3, 2009 Permalink

      @Pit waiting the blackberry can use version.

    • Cat 11:01 pm on February 3, 2009 Permalink

      Nice app!

      Unfortunately it also fails with “Error getting calendars data” on my RAZR2. Google’s GMail application works.

      I would be happy to coordinate with you to debug this (I have written J2ME apps before) — just drop me an e-mail.

    • pit 10:06 am on February 4, 2009 Permalink

      Hi Cat!

      Thanks for your feedback. Can you please specify on which exact screen you’re getting that error (e.g.: login/calendar retrieving/events retrieving)?


    • aston 10:10 am on February 4, 2009 Permalink

      When the new version?

    • Danik 4:35 pm on February 5, 2009 Permalink

      Hi there! I’d just so much like to say “Great job!” but sadly the app is for the last few minutes just downloading calendar data so I can’t really appreciate all its functions (dunno if it is my calendar being that big or some strange bug somewhere) but nevermind – I’d like to say at least “Keep up!” This is something I’ve always yearned for :o)

      // I’m using a Nokia E61 / Symbian S60 3rd, should be OK… hope se :o)

    • pit 5:16 pm on February 5, 2009 Permalink

      Hi all!

      @aston: some more days, and it’ll be out ;)

      @Danik: thanks for the feedback! This is effectively a bug, but it has been fixed and will be totally solved by next Gcal version (like said to aston, in the very next few days :)).


    • Danik 8:52 pm on February 5, 2009 Permalink

      :o) then as a programmer I have to say Great job, at least for tracing the bug :oD now seriously, I’ve tried GooSync meanwhile just to see and man, it sucks. The only thing it does is provide a syncing server to sync the internal calendar (which sucks) through the inbuilt Nokia syncing mechanism (which sucks even more)… so I’m looking very much forward to the next release! :o) Thank you and keep rollin’!

    • David Kinlay 10:35 am on February 7, 2009 Permalink

      Every time I try to download GCal (latest version), it causes my phone to crash. Why?
      Can download other midlets.
      Reply asap

    • pit 11:09 am on February 9, 2009 Permalink


      @Danik: thanks :))

      @David: are you trying downloading the MIDlet directly from your device? Which phone are you using?


    • Stefan 10:44 am on February 12, 2009 Permalink

      using GCal 0v2 on a Sony Ericsson K850i – works great.

      Bug found a small annoying bug in the sort order with recurring events.
      Seems like you use the whole date not just the time in your sorting so the recurring events show up prior to one off events of the actual day in the agenda view.
      Example setup:
      1) Recurring daily event, 10:00, event series started 13/02/2009
      2) Single event, 14/02/2009 9:00
      -> on the events overview for 14/02/2009 the recurring 10:00 event is listed first, the 9:00 event second – but it should be vice versa…

      Second issue discovered when playing around with the “Filter calendars” function. Looks like only the first 8 calendars can be (un)selected. the cursor refuses to jump to the 9th item. Maybe device related, didn’t check on other mobiles.

      Nevertheless very good stuff and feels very stable already. Looking forward to the next release ;-)


    • pit 11:07 am on February 12, 2009 Permalink

      Hi Stefan,

      thanks for your feedback!

      About the events order: yes, there’s some problem with recurring events, but it’ll be surely fixed for the next release.

      Second issue is already solved: so, this fix also will be available in next release, that should be during this week :)


    • pascal 2:55 pm on February 12, 2009 Permalink

      Dude this seems like a great app
      I’ve a N73 nokia
      it’s stuck in the Initializing screen,
      I’m trying to reach a mapped calendar

    • Chris 3:57 pm on February 12, 2009 Permalink

      Any chance the new release this week will have the diagnostic mode you mentioned earlier? I am very interested in diagnosing the connection problem with my Helio Ocean, thanks for all the hard work:)

    • pit 4:01 pm on February 12, 2009 Permalink

      Hi Chris,

      this week a new Gcal version will be released, that will include a lot of bug fixes and important new features.

      Give it a try, to see if it solves issues on your Ocean, otherwise I’ll send you a debug version to dig into your specific problems.
