    Hey gang,

    Pretty new to the iPad game, and having issues with various calendars. When I enter events on the iPad into the calendar, it's not syncing to our Android-based smart phones. If I enter it through Google calendar on the iPad, it shows up, just not when I use the calender option on the iPad. Has anyone come across this issue? Wondering if it might be the difference in operation systems.

    Is it showing up on the Google website when you enter the event in Calendar on the iPhone?

    In your Google account settings, under Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar, select the Google account. Try turning off the Calendar syncing (tell it to delete stuff on the iPad), visit the Calendars to make sure it did, then turn it back on.

    Only do this if all your important events are showing up on the Google web site.

    Check what your default calendar is set to, it sounds like your ipad is not using your google account as default.

    Settings - Mail, Contacts, Calendar - scroll down to calendar section - default calendar

    No, it doesn't. I tried entering a fake event and it doesn't show up on Google calendar when I enter it on the iPad. We have three accounts synced: my Gmail, my wife's Gmail and a shared account on the iPad. The shared iPad is the calendar that isn't showing up.

    I don't know if this would be the right option. We have three calendars: two Gmail calendars and the "Home" calendar that is our shared iPad calendar. How can these all show up reciprocally?

    Is the shared ipad one a icloud account? That would explain why it doesn't show up on google.

    Yes, it's on iCloud. Is that the problem? Now that you mention it, that makes sense. What are possible solutions?

    Use google to share a calendar instead.

    So there's no way to use the iPad calendar and share it to Android phones? Only way to share via the cloud would be iPad to iPhones?
