Is there a tutorial for migrating my iCal calendar syncing with Google calendar to iCal backed to iCloud?  Is it better than working with Google Calendar or should I stay with what I have?

    Hi Fred,

     

    Questions:

    Are you using a Mac or just an iPad?

     

    Is there a tutorial for migrating my iCal calendar syncing with Google calendar to iCal backed to iCloud?

     

    Not that I'm aware of but if you have a Mac we can tell you how to do it should you decide you want to. Its a quick process.

    If you already have your calendars in Google calendars, I don't see a huge advantage in moving your calendars to iCloud beyond having all your information stored in one service (iCloud) as opposed to multiple services (iCloud and Google).  But generally I'd say:  If its not broken, don't try to fix it.

     

    Hope that helps.

    I don't use Google calendars all that much myself but if you've gone into each person's Google calendar and "shared" that calendar to everyone else you should be able to sync that shared calendar down to your iOS device from Google's website: https://www.google.com/calendar/iphoneselect.

     

    If sharing isn't working so well for you with Google then perhaps moving all your calendars to iCloud would be beneficial assuming all your devices are iCloud compatible: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4759

     

    If you decide to go that route let us know.
