Thanks Eric.

Reading around a bit, there seems to be a bit of disquiet about how
google calendar reads .ics files, e.g.:


In particular, it seems odd that there is so much uncertainty about the
interval with which google calendar re-reads the .ics file and updates
the calendar.  I don't mind hitting a *refresh* button within a calendar
to manually force a resync, but there doesn't seem to be such a button!

I think what I'm looking for is a *read-only* solution so that google
calendar just renders the current orgmode.ics file read from the web,
rather than recalling what events were previously read in.    (I don't
need to write to this calendar, as my org files are the master.)  In
this way, I would hope the ID entries would not be required.

I'm still in the first days of using my new android phone, so I may be
missing something, but there seemed no other decent calendar tool on the
android market that would just read and render an .ics file from the
web.    I did however find this:


which sounds useful. Has anyone else seen/tried this?
