Using CalenGoo on devices without Google Apps, e.g. the Kindle Fire
On devices that have no built-in calendar (like the Kindle Fire), you need a place to save the events to. To ensure that you have a backup of your data, usually a Google Calendar account is used, but you can also use local calendars. So you have two choices:
Using CalenGoo with a Google account: This has the advantage, that you have a backup of your data and you can access your calendar from any Internet-connected computer under http://calendar.google.com. Additionally you can use shared calendars with others. You can also sync only some of your calendars with Google and have additional local calendars (see below).
To see if you have a Google Calendar account please try to sign in here:
Just click the “Sign “up for a new Google Account” button and follow the instructions.
After you have created an account, please enter at least one event using the website, otherwise CalenGoo cannot connect to it (and cannot sync).
Then start CalenGoo, press the menu button of your phone/device and tap “Settings”, “Accounts”. Tap the “Add account” button to add your Google Calendar account. You can find more information about adding accounts here: Accounts
If it doesn’t work when signing in with your email and password try to sign in via “AuthSub Login” as described here: Accounts
The menu button on the Kindle Fire is the button with the three horizontal lines at the bottom of the screen:
Using CalenGoo with local calendars: This is the simpler way, but then your data is saved only on the device. Just turn “Settings”, “Display and Use”, “General”, “Allow local calendars” in CalenGoo on and add one or more calendars (for different categories of events, e.g. “Work”, “Home”) under “Settings”, “Visibility/Download” in CalenGoo. You can change the color of a calendar by tapping its name. Please see here for further details: Local calendars
To access CalenGoo’s “Settings” menu on the Kindle Fire you have to start CalenGoo, then press the menu button at the bottom of the screen to open CalenGoo’s menu and choose “Settings”:
Installing a map application
If your device doesn’t have a map application (e.g. the Kindle Fire doesn’t have Google Maps) you can install a replacement map application like “MapQuest”. It will automatically be used when you tap the location field of an event in CalenGoo’s detail view.
