What is a calendar?

Really? No. But specific to our beloved Android devices: they may support multiple different calendar types you might not be aware of:

  • the is synced with Google servers, thus up-to-date on all associated devices, and even accessible via its web frontend. This calendar usually is available on all Android devices
  • a "PC Sync" calendar is featured by some devices, and intended to be synchronized with a PC companion such as Outlook
  • some devices also offer a "local only" calender, where everything is stored solely on the device itself
  • some devices also feature an calendar to be synchronized with MS Exchange servers

All of those integrated into the "stock" calendar app. Up to here we were not speaking about...
