You could just use you brain to remember dates and events, or a paper calendar.

Anon I too have had problems with the same thing in the past. Firstly, not a ton of people use calendars other than the standard botnet ones, so of course there's not a lot of resources. Let me help you out.

Calendars are a bit more complex and not just >muh calendar app. The apps you use are just clients that interact with a CalDAV server somewhere at GoogleHQ. This means in order to escape the botnet you have to host your own CalDAV server. There's a lightweight one that runs on python called radicale. After you've set up your own CalDAV server, you have to install DAV from Fdroid store in order to synchronize the server with your phone. ONLY THEN you install a >muh calendar app. I recommend Etar, it's free and open source, and it closely resembles the Google one.

Godspeed, anon.

Use simple calendar from fdroid and just keep it offline. Cloud = botnet.

Found you a good alternative, Anon

>> No.71264126

If you mean calendar syncing then look at CalDav and Nextcloud. It's not that hard to set up.

The problem is that on Android if you use a different calendar app and remove/disable the Google Calendar app syncing doesn't work properly.
It shouldn't be like this, but it is. At least it was last time I tried.

>lose your phone

yeah, no. pls leave your mom's basement and enter the real world.

thats what he is saying you retard, you use DAV instead of 'Google Calendar Sync'

>> No.71265921


>> No.71265964

No, you don't understand. Even if you use DAV you still need to keep Google Calendar.

>> No.71266054

GApps free? If not, did you disable/remove Google Calendar?

I know that it kinda works, but last time I tried the syncing was buggy, events to/from server were delayed and so on.
Maybe also related to Android power saving...

>> No.71266070

There's literally an Android app called "simple calendar" that does this you brainlet.

>> No.71266284

gapps pico package, no google calendar installed

>> No.71266359

Which calendar app do you use?

>> No.71266415

doesnt matter, thats not the thing that does the syncing.
for syncing I used CalDAV-Sync and CardDAV-Sync, DAVDroid was a buggy mess.

I don't have this problem on my Apple devices

>> No.71267599

1. Install Davdroid and Simple Calendar (both on F-droid for free)
2. Set up a Nextcloud server or make a (free) account from one of the providers:

I know it sounds a bit complicated, but unless you're installing the server it's 5 minutes of work to sign up and enter the login data in Davdroid.

All free and no Google involved in any way.
Also I don't recommend proprietary nonstandard shit like something from Microsoft or some other hacky solution.

iOS has built in DAV sync, so that you don't have to install Davdroid. Everything else is the same.
