Assuming your end goal is just to get the app to shut up (i.e. not get double calendar notifications for all events), all you have to do is disable the alerts and notifications from within the app itself. Go into the App Press the menu button Choose Settings Scroll to the bottom Change Set alerts & notifications to off For good measure, I also ...

i just ran into the same problem. I created a local calendar with an app and then removed the app before deleting the calendar. I could re-install the app and delete the calendar there. So for you as a developer this means you should probably add this functionality to your app. However if you need a quick fix or if someone else is running into this problem ...

Llama will let you do this, and it is free (Tasker costs money). It has many of the features as Tasker and Locale, and it can even use Locale plugins. I have grown fond of this app and have set up many automated events. To do this in Llama, you create two events and two profiles. Profiles Create a new profile and name it something like "No Notifications". ...

There are likely two calendar apps on your system. Stock Android includes an app and Google provides one as well, which might be preinstalled on your device, or you may have downloaded it without realizing it. They both look very similar (which is probably why you thought they were the same when you held on them for the App Info screen). Check in your app ...

If you want to stick with your Google Calendar as backend and frontend, you might wish to check Calendar Event Reminder. You can tell that app which calendars to look at, and to annoy you until you're going crazy. I almost guarantee you cannot miss such a reminder! I've used the app for quite some time, before... I switched to a different calendar frontend: ...

The native AOSP calendar app was replaced by Google's own1. It went by the package name com.android.calendar, but is no longer found in either Google Play Store or on F-Droid (you can find its code on Github, though). As for synchronization, that's usually not done by the calendar app itself but by the corresponding sync service; most calendar apps use the "...

EDIT: To only sync the calendar you first have to switch off everything else: Go to Settings -> Accounts -> YOUR Google Account and un-check all the sync targets you don't want (Chrome, GMail, Drive, Contacts, ...) /EDIT Then you can take care of when to have it sync. Generally, this is left to 3rd party apps. You can always pick your favourite 3rd-party ...

I can confirm that this is normal behaviour for the default (blue) Google Calendar on the Nexus 4 - just the 1 app. Having tried a few tests of my own... The multiple "roll-up" events appear to be events for which you have already received a notification, but have not explicitly acknowledged or "dismissed" it - in which case the notification remains in the ...

YES, you can delete the stock Email (Email.apk) and stock Calendar (Calendar.apk, CalendarProvider.apk) app. For a list of other apps you can delete on CyanogenMod, see the expandable list at the bottom of the CM wiki. I'm not so sure for AOSP though.

For read only feeds ICSDroid does this. It'll work with facebook's feeds too. DavDroid will do the same for a proper caldav server (syncs in both directions)

I am replying (I see no one else has) because I have always used the calendar/notifications functionality in the EXACT same way you have, and was also distressed of this change in functionality. I think we are in the minority, though, because your post is the first acknowledgement I have even seen anywhere about this issue. The only solution I have is to ...

I was never able to make any of the "top" calendar widgets, including those recommended here, show my Outlook calendar. They just showed my empty Gmail calendar or Google calendar or whatever. However I eventually discovered, way down at the bottom of the widgets list, that there was already an Outlook widget installed and waiting for me: Putting the ...

Yes you can.. while the call is active, press the home button. The current call will be minimize on the top notification bar. you can start any other app, while the call is still going on.

Google Calendar could be considered as native android calendar app. You can download it from Google Play. But I personally don't like it. As for device-only calendar - I have never seen an android phone without such a calendar (I'm not familiar with Samsung devices though). Normally you can choose a calendar during creating an event.

The current Google API / OAuth method is not supported by DAVdroid but it's still possible by using the deprecated format: https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/[yourname]@gmail.com/events username password Yet it requires the compromise Allow less secure apps: ON in the Google security settings. However, delegates don't sync. Tested on OnePlus 3t, ...

Have you considered using the Google calendar? As far as I know you can sync the Samsung S III and the Thunderbird Lightning calendar with the Google calendar.

Too complicated. There are lots of automation apps available on the market which you could use to toggle this stuff depending on the connection available. My favorite again here: Tasker. You could create a profile, and call it e.g. "AutoSync": Condition: State->Wifi: Wifi Connected Task: Auto-Sync: Turn On Exit: Auto-Sync: Turn Off Once set up, you can ...

Root: You can install Titanium Backup to uninstall unwanted apps easily. Without Root: After doing some research to uninstall apps without root, I found an interesting article which helps you creating a script to remove certain stock APK files. Check it out here. To simplify it, copy and paste this for step 7 (though I'm not too sure if those are the APK ...

I disabled it in the Application manager under settings. I don't get any notifications at all and I just use the google calendar app. I do have a it f a problem though, if I click a invite link it still opens the S planner... haven't figured out how to avoid this yet, but the app is mostly out of the way.

You can copy the mp3 file that you'd like (for example a 5-minute song) to the Notifications folder in your Android (at the same level that the Download folder). This can be done as well for ringtones (Ringtones folder) and alarms (Alarms folder). Now, go to calendar Settings, General and change the tone to your mp3 file.

UPDATE: 4 years later, I think Mike's comment is right, and I call on Google/Android to support a way to make a calendar reminder really persistent. I actually used the Calendar Snooze app for a while until it stopped being reliable. So I'm taking this comment back: I initially had the same reaction you did about the change in Calendar behavior. But I ...

No - Individual Apps have to implement and support the different calendars. Internally the Android System kernel really only knows about UNIX Timestamp. If you change the date/time manually without any network, you'll be changing that value. It is up to the Android Framework or third party developers to support the various calendars. From the beginning of ...

Just change the extension from .nbf to .zip. For detailed step-by-step instructions, read this. Go to settings, sync and backup in old Nokia Symbian phone. Click on create backup and store the backup in memory card. Connect the old phone to your PC through normal 'mass storage' mode and open the backup folder from memory card. Copy the .nbf file from ...

Your "local and private" Android calendar is your Google calendar. When you've created that personal event it defaulted to your Exchange calendar. In order to avoid this is the future make sure that you create events in the calendar you want to. Usually it defaults to the last calendar you've created an event in.

Etar - Open source calendar app is what we needed. See its source at GitHub.

Yes! you should be able to clear the stock app from being the default calendar app by following these steps: Go to the phone settings select apps scroll to the right two screen, to the 'All' section scroll down until you can find calendar, click on it scroll down the page and click the 'Clear defaults' button Next time anything wants to use the calendar, ...

I don't know how to make the setting stick, but if you are using ICS you can easily disable the Samsung calendar app - so it will act as if it is uninstalled. You can disable it by clicking the Disable button on the App settings page - just above the disable notifications checkbox. Once this is done, reboot your device and it will act as if that app is no ...

Well, I think you are talking about the Google Now notification, right? If so, you have to change the option on the Google Now app, not on the Calendar app. To do so, you go to Google Now(tap the search bar on the top of your home page) then you'll see the card that estimates your arrival time to your destination, you can see like three vertical dots, tap ...
