These instructions will not work until July 23rd, when bCal goes into production.
Set up your Android for Google Apps
First, you will need to log into bCal via the web to accept the Terms and Conditions and set the correct Time Zone. If this is not done prior to attempting to sync your mobile device, you will receive an error message. Please go to:
You will need to log in using your CalNet ID and passphrase. When you first log in, you will see Welcome to your new account. Click "I accept. Continue to my account". You will now see Welcome to Google Calendar! If the time zone is correct for you (should show Pacific Time), click "Set time zone".
Now you will need to create a new Google key, which you will store on your iPhone. To create a key, please see the KB article
Add your Google Apps account to your device
To use the native Google Apps mail, contacts, and calendar apps on your Android, you need to sign in to your Google Apps account. You only have to do this once:
1. Open the Accounts & sync Settings screen on your device. You can do this in Contacts by pressing Menu and pressing Accounts, or directly in the Settings application.
The Accounts & sync settings screen displays your current sync settings and a list of your current accounts.
2. Touch Add account.
3.Touch Google to add your Google Apps account.
4.Touch Sign in when prompted for your Google Account.
5. Enter your full Google Apps email address as your username (firstname.lastname@example.org), and then enter your Key.
6. Select which services you'd like to sync.
That's it! You can now use Google Apps from your Android. Just launch Gmail, Google Calendar, or whichever app you want to use, from your device's home or applications screen.
