Last updated at Sun Feb 21 14:36, by Shadowfury

Release Notes for 0.8.2  ⇑ top

If you are unhappy with any changes in this app due to the upgrade to Facebook Graph API v2.2: Leave feedback for Facebook

Birthday sync is back! (sort of...)  ⇑ top

The app once again syncs your friends' birthdays, but only for those friends that have specifically authorized you to do so. Read more about it at Facebook Privacy Changes

Improving the new user experience  ⇑ top

The primary focus of this release was improving the experience for new users.

Enhancement FBCal-64  ⇑ top

Added a launcher activity to the app. Since almost every app has a launcher activity, users are accustomed to being able to launch the app directly out of the Play store, or to finding an app icon in the launcher drawer in order to start the app. The new launcher activity helps the user easily find the app, and helps walk the user through the steps of setting up an account.

Enhancement FBCal-71  ⇑ top

When adding a new account, the app will display a dialog box with an error, rather than immediately returning back to the list of accounts screen.

Enhancement FBCal-72  ⇑ top

The app now enables auto sync by default. Users no longer need to manually turn on sync when they add a new account.

Bug report FBCal-73  ⇑ top

Apparently, some handset OEMs choose to remove the Android CalendarProvider debugging tools. Since the app linked directly to the Android tools, it would crash if the OEM had removed that capability. Now, the app provides a toast message letting the user know that the feature is not available on their device.

Bug report FBCal-60  ⇑ top

Birthday sync is back! (Sort of...) The app will once again sync the birthdays of your friends, but with a big caveat: Your friend must personally authorize the app before Facebook will allow the app to see his/her birthday. If your friend also uses this app, or if they authorize the app by going to their birthday will once again show up in the app and sync properly.

From the previous version (0.8.1)  ⇑ top

Updated Facebook Graph API version to v2.2. Beginning April 30, 2015, Facebook no longer allows access to Graph API v1.0.

Newer versions of the Graph API remove a lot of functionality:
  • Facebook no longer allows access to Friends' information, unless that friend specifically authorizes the app. If you were a user of v0.8 or earlier, your friends' birthdays will remain in your calendar, but new friends will not be added.
  • Facebook no longer allows access to event information if the event was created by a secret group. Events created by secret groups will no longer show up on your calendar.
Additional feature limitation: Sync of attendee RSVP status has been removed.
  • This feature relied on friends' information access to limit the amount of data downloaded from the server. Without access to that information, RSVP lists would be unmanageable.
  • This feature caused a lot of problems for users, due to the excessive data consumption and Facebook server time it needed.

For future releases (Coming Soon)  ⇑ top

  • Ability to invite people to authorize the app. If your friend authorizes the app, you will be able to sync their birthday to your Android calendar.

Known Issues  ⇑ top

  • HTC calendar app does not display events if you decline them. They app properly syncs them to the database, but HTC's app will not display them. This is an issue with HTC's calendar app, as other apps will display the events as intended.
