Too bad.

Same here.

Thanks you very much for this comment. This spares me trying out
"Agenda > MobileOrg > Android Calendar" for now.

So I have to stay with Google Calendar until I find something
better.


Related to this and in case of interest:

I implemented a Python-tool to filter my ICS export file. It removes
everything except few things such that I basically get a
free/busy-only ICS file. I can easily share it with friends without
having too much privacy issues. Get the tool at [1] if you need this
feature.

I also implemented a Python-tool that injects Google Calendar alarms
for tags on appointments like :rem15: (remind me 15 minutes ahead)
on [2]. However, this does not work yet because Google seems to
ignore ICS alarms while importing the file :-( (No solution found
yet)
