How do I open and accept calendar invitations? Phone is a Samsung Galaxy S SCH-I500 2.3.4 firmware. US Cellular carrier, I'm using gmail app and email app; neither recognize format. phone's native calendar and google cal online. All else synced and working beautifully. 3rd party software for ical attachments (buy me a beer guy) didn't parse correctly...

You need to be way more clear here. What service are the invitations originating from? Are you attempting to send a response? Are you attempting to add them to your calendar (and which is that)? –  Matthew Read Sep 27 '11 at 21:06
    
Invitations sent from google calendar and from lotus notes calendar. Attempt to view them fails; therefore can't accept and add to resident calendar - included on phone, synced to web google calendar –  jeff Sep 27 '11 at 22:58
    
.ics attachments "not supported for viewing" even when they come from google calendar. Still egg on google face IMHO –  jeff Sep 28 '11 at 22:16

This is only partially the case. Although there's no convenient way to do anything with an ICS attachment directly from your phone, you can have Google Calendar automatically add a corresponding event to your calendar when a .ics pops up in your inbox. Just enable the setting, Automatically add invitations to my calendar in your Google Calendar settings (from the Google Calendar website). Then when you receive a meeting invite, it'll already be in your calendar by the time you see the email. You can then RSVP from Google Calendar (the site or the app). –  ctt May 19 '12 at 17:35

The best is "ics Databridge". That´s free app on Android apps and works perfect. The size is just 22kb and its function is absolutely without any issues. I can recommend it. I try it and it is really workfull and simple.

You can use Invitation Plugin to open ics files directly in Google Calendar application. It can open ics invitations from email attachments or from files on sdcard.

It requires at least Android 4+ (Ice Cream Sandwich) to run.

And I am an author of this app.
