Hi,

I noticed today, that there are two apps for org-mode on android, namely 
MobileOrg and MobileOrgNG.

Is there any significant difference between them in terms of 
functionality and stability? Is any of them to be recommended over the 
other one?

So far, I've been using MobileOrg and it worked for me.

Regards,
Laurent

MobileOrg has some useful features more than MobileOrgNG, for example
sync with calendar (IIRC google or telephone) at least Org to calendar. 

Here you find a short opinion to the difference:
http://sachachua.com/blog/0000/00/06/ 

In past IIRC MobileOrg does not provide to see the entries of the different
org-files, only the agenda and TODO-List was visible.

If i Push the org-files under Windows with MobileOrg the different
org-files are not synced, but with MobileOrgNG they are. If i push the
org-files under Mac OS, the org-files are synced even with MobileOrg.  

I'm mostly using MobileOrgNG with the disadvantage, that the content of Drawers
on Android are not visible. 

You can play with both and decide later, whats your favorite.

Cu,
Robert

Thank you very much for the hint. Changing sha1sum.exe to md5sum.exe did
not change anything for me, but changing from Gnuwin sha1sum/md5sum to
the one from ftp://ftp.gnupg.org/gcrypt/binary/sha1sum.exe seems to fix
the issue for me.

I hope, other issues are fixed too. Sometimes org-mobile-push crashes
because of IIRC unexpected hashes. If I remove the related
agenda-file(s), do the push, and then add the files to the agenda-files
the push sometimes is succesfull. I have no idea, how to fix it.

Cu,
Robert

I don't think so.

I'm using an emacs version from http://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/windows/.
At first there were no md5sum binary found. So i installed the coreutils
(and diffutils) from gnuwin32. Seems that these utils don't work
fine with emacs.

I can try this, but seems to be difficult, because removing the file
from the agende-file-list and adding it another time sometimes solves
the issue.

Invoking C-c C-x RET p from one file which begins with
# Time-stamp: "2012-09-27 Do 01:17:19 (re)"
#+LAST_MOBILE_CHANGE: 2012-03-12 21:40:01
#TAGS: PHONE(p) URGENT(u) MAIL(e) Anwesenheit (a) Musik (m) Orgel (o) Cello (i)

I got an error, then I deleted line 2  
#+LAST_MOBILE_CHANGE: 2012-03-1221:40:01
the error no more occured.

After this i copied the line in another agenda-file from wich invoking
org-mobile-push does not result in an error.

The error did not occur with this changed file.
Then I copied the line in the first file and started org-mobile-push:

The error didn't occur further. So i am confused.

I'll play with this, but i think this will take much time. 

Do you speak german? Im thinking, you can better understand me, if i
could write in german.

Thanks,

Robert
