    i'm on this jag where i think i am going to buy BC, then i think i am going to move to google, then i think i am going to test my settings again on my next trip and just deal with the various hassles until they work things out. then i think i am going to buy BC, then i think i am going to move to google....

    Sorry, I've talked repeatedly in the past b4 about Sunrise App for the phone.... Test it endlessly bouncing from time zone to time zone endlessly.  It never fails & they are continually updating & improving it. Try that.... Under 5 minutes to setup multi accounts painlessly. :)

    It might be fine but it's worthless to me if it doesn't work across three macs, an iPad and two iPhones via the cloud. I can see where I can get it for the phone, but that's not gonna cover it. Am I missing something?

  • HansWorldTravels Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    It does work on iPhone & iPad(I don't have one). It is pulling from the servers/cloud. I just noticed the other day.... I'm using outlook.... I had an event invite through outlook, it pushed automatically to sunrise, I accepted in sunrise, it instantly pushed back to outlook. No glitches, flaws, nothing.

     

    I can only lead horses to water, can't make anyone drink. If people aren't willing to try something that takes 5 minutes to setup, less to remove it... Just to see how it works, there's nothing left to say bc the truth is.... Apple will not change an effing thing. End of story.

    I am not sure what &amp means. It does not seem to offer a version for the Mac, which is essential. That was my question. If you don't know please say so.

    "&amp" is what happens when you post to this forum from Safari on iOS and use the ampersand (&). Any place you see it, just assume "&".

    The problem as I recall it is that Mac's do not automatically update to a time zone when you arrive, which is the same as a PC based laptop. However, all phones do this windows, iPhones, etc.  Therefore, Apple but a feature TZS into the computers to address this.... They also put TZS into iPhones, iPads, etc as well which is not needed bc being connected to cellular, the time automatically updates. Bc of it being on both the computer (which needs it apparently, I don't think it does) and also on the devices (which definitely do not need it), they don't play well with each other & all the problems start.

     

    Don't worry about it on the Macs. Put it on your devices, try & play with it there. Ie create an event in Sunrise... Adjust TZs there, it's obvious. See how it reacts in your Macs. Know it will adjust correctly when you change TZs in person, based on what I am telling you. If you go somewhere in the flesh with your Mac.... Suck it up just like everyone else that had a laptop & has to manually adjust the computer clock.

     

    Apple tried to make a solution. It doesn't work. They are not supporting it, nor will they fix or remove it.... There is nothing left to say.

    I'm not sure why you're replying to me. I don't have a problem. Perhaps you meant this reposnse for someone else?

  • D Hull Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    I'm replying because you've suggested an alternative software. Now you're saying don't worry about the mac, it'll show up there. I don't understand how it will do that if there is not a version for the Mac. I'm trying to understand what you are telling me.

     

    I usually, but not always, set up my events on the mac which is supposed to automatically send them to the other devices connected to this calendar.

     

    My original question was is there an alternative software that works across both OSs and the cloud. Your answer to that question was incomplete. If you don't know, just say so. No offense, but I do know what I need.

    You didn't reply to me and I never said you were. I was replying to HansWorldTravel.  I never suggested any alternative software. I merely explained what "&amp" meant.

     

    I am not HansWorldTravels. I think that's who you want to be replying to.

  • D Hull Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Sorry, you're quite right. My mistake.

  • Meg St._Clair Level 8 Level 8 (43,790 points)

    No worries! I'd begun to think I might be losing my mind!

  • D Hull Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Nope, it was me, losing mine!

  • Meg St._Clair Level 8 Level 8 (43,790 points)

    It's those pesky ampersands.....

  • HansWorldTravels Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    ICal is the program is it not? Macs or iDevices is where it is expressed. iCal is over the web... It is where the data is.  The problem was with the same software operating on comps that did not update time automatically and devices that did. Apple put in a software fix, applied it equally to those that needed it & those that don't.... Hence the problem. Your emails & events are just data that is expressed thru iCal or other software that can work with the data as well... Which can then be modified which will then express itself in other software. iCal on your Mac can be your primary device to read & modify the data, that doesn't matter. But you can use other softwares on your devices to read & modify that data as well aka Sunrise App.

     

    Stop thinking about using TZS and also the concept of floating events that was a user workaround to the TZS that did not work.
