Weather calendar

Google Calendar has a weather calendar that can be activated in Google Calendar’s settings under “Show weather based on my location”. By activating the calendar you can get a weather forecast for the next three days. If you sync that calendar directly (i.e. not via Android) CalenGoo can even display small icons for these events:

To make CalenGoo recognize the change immediately (and not on the next day when the weather changes), please first set it to “Do not show weather”. Then sync CalenGoo by choosing “Sync” from the menu. Wait for the sync to finish. Then set it to the desired value “°C” or “°F” and sync CalenGoo again. If the new weather calendar doesn’t appear, please tap “Settings”, “Visibility/Download”, press the menu button and choose “Refresh Android Calendars”.
