Using Siri with CalenGoo

Currently it is technically impossible to use Siri in other apps, only Apple’s own apps can use Siri. But Siri can save events into the default calendar of your phone. So to use Siri with CalenGoo there are two ways:

Configuring Siri to save the events into your Google Calendar

First you have to sync the iPhone calendar with Google Calendar:
  1. Start the "Settings" app and open "Calendar > Accounts" (or "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" on iOS 9 and prior versions).
  2. Tap "Add Account", choose "Google" and follow the instructions.

Afterward you should see your Google calendars in the iPhone calendar app. Then start the Settings app, tap "Calendars" (or “Mail, Contacts, Calendars” on iOS 9) and choose one of your Google calendars as Default Calendar for new events. Siri will save your events into that calendar:


And after syncing CalenGoo, you will see these events in CalenGoo, too (or you let CalenGoo display the events of the iPhone calendar, please see below).

Configuring CalenGoo to display the iPhone calendars

Another option is to let CalenGoo simply display the calendar that Siri uses to save new events. Just turn “Settings > Accounts > Show iPhone calendars” on in CalenGoo to see the calendars of the iPhone in addition to your Google calendars. Then return to the calendar view. That should be all, now you should see Siri’s events in CalenGoo.

If you like you can configure which calendars should be visible under “Settings > Visibility/Download”.

Events created with the Apple Mail app

The Apple Mail app can create events from emails. These events are saved into the iPhone/iPad calendar in the same way as Siri saves them. You can view these events on CalenGoo in the same way as described for Siri events above.
