The iPad calendar app only allows reminders sequenced from minutes to a couple days. Certainly not enough time to be reminded to get a birthday card, gift or so on. So, I'm entering the event twice, one for the early reminder, then the actual event. This is'nt real efficient :confused:

Can you recommend a great calendar app out of the gaggle of them? Thanks, IM

use google calendars then sync it with ical on your mac, then when you sync your iPad you will get all of your google calendar info.

Google calendar has a drop down to remind you # mins/hours/days/weeks ahead.

You can also sync your iPad calendar directly with Google if you want more or less real-time syncing w/o needing to sync with your Mac/PC. The only downside is that it uses the one and only Exchange account setup you are allowed to have on iPad.

The end result will be what gentlefury said, that you can set whatever reminder you want in Google, and that reminder will sync with your iPad, even though you can't set it that way when you create/edit the appointment on iPad.

How do you sync directly on the iPad? It was never an option on the iPod Touch so I never even tried. I don't use any exchange stuff.

I have my blackberry synced to my Google calendar, I had to stop the sync to my Mac because my blackberry would stop syncing because there were too many syncs. I ended up with multiple scheduled itmes everywhere. Hope this works. Thank

You must be doing something wrong. I have various events scheduled between now and Oct, alarms set and the whole kittenkapoddle. And my calendar is syncing with my Home Desktop, Office Desktop, Laptop, iPad, iPod, iPhone just wonderfully.

If you want to sync (push) your calendar, contacts and email to more then one device you need MobileMe, go to MobileMe.com and check it out. You get a free trial. It's pretty neat. Anytime you make a change to your calendar and or contacts on any of your devices you have set up it will update all other devices within seconds..

If the Google Calendar and Contact apps floats your boat then I guess it good for you. I personally cant stand the Google apps. And so far I haven't paid a dime for MobileMe. I,ve been using it since last december and love it..
