Question Blackberry ICAL Support

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone looked at this application? It does exactly what I want to do, but I'm a bit hesitant to install something that hasn't even been tested on a real Blackberry.

Alternatively, can anyone point me to a similar product? I have a very small company with only two Blackberry users, so BES does not make sense.

Forgot to add the link...

Well, I backed everything up, and tried it. I don't know if it can properly accept an appointment request because it wouldn't send one out. Kept saying "unable to get appointment details". Guess that's back to square one for me xx

If it helps. I have an 8700c and just sent myself an iCal appointment from a personal account to my work account (where my BB is). I received it as an appointment as I should.
Like you mentioned though, I have a BES.

Thanks for the effort. I was aware that BES would do what I want. I was just hoping for a simpler, and more cost effective solution.

I don't need to do a calendar sync. Just be able to send & receive appointment requests.

Default iCal Ideas

Hello, I am the developer of the Blackbery iCal software that you are trying to use.

As mentioned, I never had the oppertunity to test the software on a blackberry device, however I recently found an old Blackberry 6700 (battery missing) and have been playing around with it to figure things out.

So far I have discovered that problem seem to exist if the blackberry API's are not installed. To fix this I have modified the ALX File

The difference is this file has the line:

<requires id="net.rim.blackberry.api"/>

inside the icalext.alx file after the </copyright> line but before the <fileset ...> line

This seems to ensure that the blackberry api files are copied to the device as well as my program. Again I did all of this under 3.6, you may have 3.7 or 4.0 and I don't have one of these to test on, but hopefully it will work as well.

Tried it with the change to the ALX file. No different. I still get the message "Error getting appointment details!"
