    I was wondering if someone could offer me some help with Pocket Informant-
    Since I dont use a google calendar I haven't set it up to sync
    my problem is that I can't figure out how to add more calendars - the two native options that come with the app are "family" and "work" i'd like to add in "school" "dogs" etc. but for some reason I just can't figure out how to do it. I had the app showing my calendars from the native iphone calendar but for some reason it is showing two of every one? I have no idea if this has anything to do with my mobileme calendar as well? which under my calendar settings I seem to have two of the same calendars in the same colors, one listed under All from My Mac and one under my mobile me- but I only have the ones from my mac checked to show up in the calendar (hopefully this is making sense)
    so my question is- how do i add calendars to the pocket informant w/o going through google calendar or ical, (b/c i dont really care about it syncing w/ mobile me or ical) OR can I make my ical and mobile me's consolidate so that I only have one "home" "dogs" "school" calendar for both of them so I can use them in PI w/o them repeating (I know PI has the option not to show these calendars but then when I go to add a task for them, it asks which calendar to add it to, and since something like "school" is listed twice w/ the same color, I have no idea which one is checked to show and which one isn't)

    Settings>General>Manage Calendars then touch the '+' at top right. Add the calendars that way. (I dont use Google Calendars either, though I do sync with MobileMe through the internal iOS calendars)

    If you already have the calendars on MobileMe and iCal or even the iPhone's calendars, PI will sync in those and use those calendars. Settings>Calendar Settings>Use iOS Calendars. You'll then find PI pulls the date (and writes to) the internal calendars.

    Oye, had to be that simple! I kept looking in the calendar setting not general--> manage calendars :-/
    Thanks so much
