I used to use my events in Google Calendar for reminding me of my events through SMS alerts earlier (when I had a simple mobile). Now I've got those synced up in my Android 2.1 (Samsung Galaxy 3 Apollo) and I would like it to remind me of my events by alarm instead of SMSes. Is this possible?
Using stock Calendar apps, you can
The stock calendar icon:
press "Menu", then tap on "More":
tap "Set alerts & notifications":
tap on "Alert":
This is on Calendar version 7 on 2.1-eclair Samsung Spica
By the above steps, whenever a new event is added on-line, it will set an alarm notification for it on mobile when synced.
For already created event, change the notification for each event to Pop Up through web browser.
I believe you can setup something with Tasker.
Create a new event, based off of state --> "Calendar Entry".
Then create a task based off of it to alert a sound for you or show a dialog or whatever you need for it to do.
