Use of WebDAV, CalDAV, and CardDAV with various clients

We at Flyn Computing share our calendars and contacts using ownCloud and the CalDAV and CardDAV protocols. The following notes demonstrate the key parts of how to configure a selection of clients to use these services. You should also replace name with your calendar/address book name and password with your password. (We assume that ownCloud exists at the URL https://www.flyn.org/share/, but you could replace this portion of the examples below if you wish to use an ownCloud-based service hosted elsewhere.)

Replace name and password:

These directions require the CardDAV-Sync and CalDAV-Sync apps; each is available from the Android app store. Selecting either app will present a configuration dialog which you should fill our as described below. The native calendar and contact apps will display shared data after you have configured CardDAV-Sync and CalDAV-Sync. Replace name and password:
