Hi!

My Org-mode export generates entries like this one:

    BEGIN:VEVENT
    UID: TS-a79f58e8-127e-485d-813b-d81c46f70c9e
    DTSTART:20121205T163000
    DTEND:20121205T180000
    SUMMARY:This is the event
    DESCRIPTION: Here goes the first parts of the notes/content
    CATEGORIES:@town,misc
    END:VEVENT

I would like to use/read the CATEGORIES (@town and misc -
corresponding to the list of tags) in Google Calendar. I want to use
it on my Android devices, to be precise.

In my online Google Calendar I do not see anything about those
categories. On my Android devices either.

I supposed that Google does not support this field. However, I could
only find [1] with an description of the Google Calendar supported
format. Quite unspecific IMHO.

Is there someone facing the same issue?

Well, to me it means neither Google Calendar and the current Org
Android apps support categories.

It would be nice to double-check this by displayed an org-generated
.ics file into an application that *does* support categories.

To be fair, I have to add that I do not connect my Android MobileOrg
app with my Android calendar. I am using ICS-export -> Webserver ->
Google Calendar <-> Android Calendar App.

So what about Org <-> MobileOrg <-> Android Calendar ? Is someone
able to confirm this issue of not using the categories property?

In case of no success here either, I would plead to switch to a ICS
field that gets interpreted or add it to the description field or
such.
