But I am being wrecked by trying to work out how to unite a) calendars and b) contacts. For years I've shared my google calendar with all my devices as well as with D and friends when they needed it. For the last few weeks not everything has been synchronising. I have 5 programmes which I use for inputting. All of them integrate on my phone but, infuriatingly things I add to my phone don't go onto my windows 8 calendar or google.
I downloaded iCloud to see if that helped. But now outlook only reads things from phone and not from google.
I'll tell you about integrating contacts another day. Google is changing its synch protocols. I wonder if that had anything to do with my chaos.
