HOT! OnToCalendar – Free App Adds Emails To Your Calendar

A bit back there was a commercial app called AddToCalendar that let you add an email as a calendar item with a reminder but that application is no longer available. SoundsLikeObiwan missed this app so he created it himself after discussing it in this thread. Since it was based on some code from RIM he is offering it for free. Its a very slick application that simply adds a menu item to each email that says OnToCalendar… It also has some simple but awesome settings that you can find in the general settings/options of your BlackBerry. This lets you set default reminder

There are two versions available. From what I can tell one works on OS 4.2.1 and older devices (Version 2.X) and one that works on OS 4.5+ devices (Version 3.X). All I can confirm is that the 3.3 version works like a charm on my Bold!

Desktop Install and OTA links can be found at this link. For the 3.3 version just look into the Beta folder at this link.

Thanks a TON SoundsLikeObiwan!!!

  1. Sounds like a great companion to Google Sync and synching with my google calendar. I’ll have to give this one a try.

  2. Great little handy application. Maybe the next stage of the development of this application would be to include the body of the email into the “notes” section of the calendar. Brilliant effort!

  3. It already does that 🙂 you just need to go to the general blackberry options and you will see a new section called ontocalendar

  4. Anyone got this to work at his Curve 8900?

  5. 3.3 beta works great on bold, thanks for this!

  6. I tried to install OTA for my Bold but it just gives me links to files I cannot open on my BB. Any thoughts?

  7. Really appreciate this app, running on 4.5 vzw 8330. For me, pretty much eliminates the point of having tasks, if needed I can drag them in outlook later. Love the fact that duration is pre-set to 0 minutes, no reminder. ObiWan it gets he does.

  8. I’m the author of this app. I can answer any questions about it.

    Sean — can you expand on the problem you’re having? You aren’t able to download and install using the following link?

  9. I have BB Bold and wanted to install this as well, is there any time line for coming out of beta for OS 4.6 & the bold?

  10. The beta works fine on the bold. No need to wait

  11. Great App. beta version works great on my bold…

    Thank you!!!

  12. actually, either version (beta or stable) should work on any platform. The only difference is the “Onto Tasks” feature. Feel free to use either and let me know if one or the other doesn’t work for your particular situation. Please either post here or blackberryforums with your version and issue. Check out the new website too,

    thanks for the review.

  13. Does this work on the Storm? this would be quite useful!

  14. Should work fine on the Storm. Works in the simulator anyway. Let me know.

  15. I just downloaded 3.5.5 and initial impressions seems to be that it is working as stated! I just added a task using the Onto Task feature and it worked perfect…great app and great work! Thank you!

  16. Where is the current version 3.3.5, and did you test it on a Storm?

  17. Should work fine on a storm. The two choices are available on my website,
