    I use google calendar on MBP, linked to the native calendar(with the date number in white & red icon) on iPhone and iPad. Events created on MBP and iPhone sync with the others by wifi, but today I created an entry on iPad which did not upload and sync via wifi. I haven't tried a docking sync (which would be a cumbersome solution).
    In looking at settings in calendar, it seems that syncing may be incoming only. I can do an outgoing sync in google calendar, but I much prefer the look of "native"

    Solutions? TIA, Larry

    When you add an event, are you making sure to select the calendar linked to your google account?

    As xeryuslee says make sure your using the correct calendar, by default it uses the ipad calendar, change it in settings if you want it to always use your google calendar.

    You might want to check the settings in I tunes regarding the syncing of your calendars....

    I understand about this, but when I add entries on my iPhone it automatically goes to my online gmail.. Without syncing in iTunes. That doesn't happen on the iPad. If I chose to sync it, it wants to sync with iCal on the MacBook, which has nothing in it because I use Google calendar.

    Why is this so hard and frustrating.. I've never had a problem with my Apple items incouldnt resolve :(
