Yahoo calendar on Android, for the love of all that is holy

If, when, how, and if not, why not, is there not a simple way of accessing and writing to a Yahoo calendar in Android?

Unbelievably it's been over five years
since I last had a whinge about Yahoo calendar. I continue to use it because it works well with my email. Yahoo has managed a (pretty good) email app for Android and I'm at a loss to understand why they don't also want to support Yahoo Calendar on one of the largest mobile platforms in the world.
Currently I'm using a kludge-y workaround with an Android app called CalDAV-Sync
. A year or so ago the developer stopped Yahoo support as their servers were so unreliable, but it's sort of worked. Except it doesn't work especially well. Events entered on my phone sometimes turn up in my browser. Sometimes they don't.
Why oh why isn't there a dedicated yahoo calendar app? I would even be happy with a straight up simple way of synchronising the yahoo calendar with Google calendar, but even that doesn't seem to be straightforward (or even possible). If anyone versed in the dark arts of caldav, ical, sync and server mysticism could explain how to do this I would be hugely grateful.
