Before I found OneCalendar, I recommended the free app ‘Gmail Calendar‘ for Windows 8. However, the free ‘Gmail Calendar’ app has some disadvantages:

  • It is not ad-free.
  • You cannot access your events offline.
  • There is no background refresh (premium feature).
  • You always have to open the app for refreshing.

Now coming back to OneCalendar. After downloading and installing OneCalendar from the Windows 10 App Store (beta), you set up Google calendars as follows:

  1. Go to ‘Settings‘, click on ‘Add an account‘ and select ‘Gmail Google calendar‘.

    I wasted my money buying this calendar thinking I could sync my google calendar from my phone with my desktop calendar…..
    Now I have 3 separate calendars instead of 2. I followed your directions, it shows my gmail address, it shows “synchronizing” but the info is just not there.
    I am extremely disappointed. Also, just saying, for some reason, I can’t setup any repeats and the birthdays are not in the color I designated, and it is just blah.
    I’m really disappointed
