Events and/or Calendars are partly not synchronized. What can I do?

Please be aware that Smooth Sync for Cloud Calendar will not sync calendars of other accounts (like, for instance, your Google Calendars) to your iCloud. See how it works: Smooth Sync for Cloud Calendar will create one or more new calendars on your device (one for each calendar in your iCloud account) and sync content, name and color of these calendars as you defined them in your iCloud account. By adding an event you may choose the calendar you want to add the event to. Choose one of your iCloud calendar - and the event will be synced. Having chosen an iCloud calendar, the event will get synced back to your iCloud account. See examples for typical "choose calendar" of Android devices and calendar app dialogues here (http://dmfs.org/wiki/index.php?title=Calendar_selection_fields) Please note that copying events from one calendar to another may be a hairy job: You either export/import them as ICS-formatted data or use some dedicated app as, for example, "Termine Kalender kopieren"

iCloud calenders vanished after reboot or app update. What can I do?

First and mostly, this is based on a critical issue inside Android - especially affecting Samsung devices. It affects every commercial app that gains access to Accounts such as your iCloud Account. Don't worry: We built a workaround for you: Please install our free app JB Workaround iCloud Calendar additionally. In case of remaining problems, please delete the SmoothCloud Apps. After that, install the Workaround app first and reinstall the SmoothSync app afterwards. This issue regards almost all Samsung devices and most devices with Android versions 4.1 & 4.4

Secondly, and in some specific cases only, the app has been installed on a plug-in memory card instead of the device's built-in memory. Please reinstall the app on the built-in memory - the device itself - as most devices may not handle sync adapters on plugged-in cards properly. Note that in most cases, you may “move” the app from memory card to the device memory: Go to Menu / Settings / Applications / Manage Applications, choose the app. You should find an option "move to SD" or "move to phone" there.

Events added via iCloud on my iPad/iPhone do appear on my Android device. Otherwise, events added on my Android calendar app, do not appear inside iCloud. What to do?

Why are my birthday events not being synchronized?

iCloud itself does not handle birthday events as calendar events, as it may appear to the user. Every birthday data is fetched from your contacts. So, if iCloud contact data is synced to your Android device (using SmoothSync Cloud Contacts for example), you may use some app that fetches birthday data from contacts right into your calendar app (as "Birthday Calendar Adapter" does) or use another calendar app itself, that does the job well. aCalendar would be a try, we think.

I recently changed my iCloud password online. How to change it inside the SmoothCloud app?

The app will ask for your password as soon as the sync login fails. Just type in your new password and everything will go well as before. As we care about your security, login data is stored encrypted inside the app and nowhere else.

I forgot my iCloud password. How to go on?

In order to reset your password or activate the password reminder, please visit the Apple user center. You may find it here: https://appleid.apple.com

What about data security and privacy?

We care about your privacy as much as you do: SmoothSync directly connects your Android device to the Apple iCloud servers, so it neither transmits nor saves any of your data outside your device and the iCloud infrastructure. Your password is saved encrypted - and on your device only.
