Okay, I browsed the wish list a bit and I noticed that people have been asking for mobile support every now and then, and Localendar's support hinted at some developments towards HTML5.

What I would like is something a bit different. Something I would be ready to pay for. The possibility to create a mobile app out of any calendar.

In a nutshell, I would like to tell my iPad/Android users to "download the new Acme app" from the market. The Acme app being a iOS/Android application that integrates with my calendar so nicely that it can navigate through the calendar and display the event infos in a seamless and cool fashion.

I see two ways this can happen.

1) Localendar has a iOS/Android developer in house that can develop a generic app. This app will be then customized for each (paying) customer.

2) The calendar data can be easily exported into a standard format and we do the app creation thing ourselves.

Now I prefer option 1. :)

ciao!

This is an interesting idea. However, a specific mobile app for every calendar user is probably a lot more work than we could handle (don't forget, it has to go through the Apple store too)

Which is why an HTML5/mobile friendly solution is something we've looked at. Do you think your users require a native experience? We've thought about auto-detecting mobile users and defaulting them to this view.

Another option is a generic iOS/Android app that you could use to display a particular calendar (once you supply the name). In this case, your story would be something like "Download the localendar app and tell enter "sagre" for the calendar name.

Your thoughts?

biggrin I LOVE the idea of a downloadable mobile app and users just have to supply the calendar name!

Support,

Has anything been pursued or developed to get the calendar to view nicely on mobile devices yet ?

Thanks

Yes. We've been playing with a few mobile frameworks (appcelerator Titanium, easyshare, jquery Mobile, etc) in an effort to try and find a solution that will work cross-device and also not require too much effort from our Dev teams. All I can say at this point is that we're still working on a solution

Some of the calendar view styles already display nicely on mobile devices. About 27% of our traffic comes from tablets and 12% from mobile.

Thanks support. Can you be specific which styles will work best. I can get the full page in browser-mode, but it is very small and hard to use.
Thanks
