My wife and I are trying to sync our calendars across our various devices. Please help me not tear my hair out. Between the both of us, we have:
1. Separate iCloud accounts that we still have to figure out how to use. I tried sharing my local iCal calendar with her and seeing if it was visible on her iPhone using iCloud but nope, no sign of it there
2. My wife's iPhone 4
3. My HTC One V
4. My Macbook Air (10.7) and her Macbook (10.6)
5. A GMail calendar each. We work as independent consultants so this is where we store our individual appointments - work and personal. We are able to share this with each other on GMail but can't figure out how to make them visible on iCal locally or on iCloud
6. My client's Exchange calendar where I store appointments related to the work I do for them
The only way that I can see this being possible is if we make multiple copies of our calendars. So I store 1 appointment on my Gmail calendar (using iCal) and then copy the same appointment to my iCloud calendar (on iCal), thereby making it visible to my wife.
However, this is really inelegant and I don't want to open up my iCal and see a soup of colors and appointments. AskMeFi - I turn to your collective wisdom to see me through. Thanks
