Webaccess Works

It was actually really easy to use the Blogs at PSU toolset from the iPhone. Typing is proving to be a little easier than I imagined as well! I am noticing that every time you leave the browser and return, you need to authenticate via webaccess — I guess that is a good thing for a lot of reasons, but what a pain.

I used the Safari browser to go to cal.psu.edu and my calendar looks great … I double tap the screen and I can see all the detail I need. I am worried that the lack of true calendar integration will be hard on me … using the web view is an option, but it feels way too slow and way too many clicks. I am going to work at the export to iCal and sync with the iPhone deal next. Getting data in and out of Oracle quickly and into iCal is my overall goal.

  1. One of the things I thought would be great about the iPhone was its calendar integration with iCal. Is that proving to be a problem or does the problem have to do with Oracle? Right now I use Google Calendar and iCal subscribes to my Google calendars. I would love to have true syncing with iCal and Google calendars in which I could add items to either and they would appear in both. (Now I need to export the calendar from iCal if I make an addition there.)

  2. iPhone works perfectly with iCal. The problem lies with Oracle. We’re thinking of ways to make this work smoothly — not an easy task. I am toying with other solutions at the moment and will report back on them.
