Integrate Calendar on Mobile etc
Love that you guys created an encrypted Calendar - but what's the point of it if the only way to use it is to log in on the PM web version? There is no sync, no push notifications, and worst of all it's not available on mobile.
I think most of us use calendars on our mobile devices.
So PCalendar should either have a standalone app, or at the very least be integrated into the PMail app.
Better yet, is there any way to integrate/sync calendar data into a device's other third party calendar app?
For example, I've been using Fruux to keep my contacts and calendars in sync on multiple devices. I can add a calendar event in, say, Android's native calendar app, then it'll sync up with Fruux, and push that event on to ALL my other calendar apps (Fantastical on iOS, Thunderbird's calendar plugin, etc etc etc).
I would prefer a clean break from a stock calendar app and use a dedicated ProtonCalendar mobile app. I also do not want it to be part of the ProtonMail app because I want two different apps for two different tasks. The app should be Free/Open Source Software and a version should be published on F-Droid for users not using Google Play services.

It would be handy if the email and calendar would open via a separate app. E.g. one can simulate having both email (on one screen) and calendar (on the other screen) open by opening protonmail twice but that is a bit cumbersome
I agree, without the ability to schedule and get notifications on my phone, the calender (web-based only) is useless. Please get app version ASAP
Agreed. I switched to the beta site to see the calendar and immediately came here after discovering there is no way to use it on my mobile.
Looking forward to further improvements!
i agree with you, i see no point to use the webmail calendar at the moment
it's in beta, but i can only really test and use it if it's also available on mobile
ProtonMail is working on bring calendar to mobile, though:
"While ProtonCalendar is only available in the web version of ProtonMail for now, we will also be bringing ProtonCalendar to iOS and Android with dedicated mobile apps in 2020."
~~it sounds like separate apps~~(correction: they ARE separate apps, an email from ProtonMail said, "We are also developing ProtonCalendar mobile apps.")...unlike how contacts is built into the mail client, ~~but we'll see~~
development takes time, but i like what they are doing
