I'm using dropsync to get the .ics to my phone. Then I'm using a program called iCalSync2 to sync the .ics to the phone calendar.
I've failed to find good documentation on this, the following two links were the most useful:


and I'm using the advice in the second.

I ended up hand crafting a small ics file (it's "just text") and re-syncing with OSX Calendar until it displayed correctly, on the right day and in the right time zone. When that worked I fixed the code to produce the same data.

For those who care, the following code from applies this logic:

def format_date (item, the_date, is_due_date):
    if 'allday' in item.attribs:
        # Make all day - must have no hms in format
        the_date = datetime (the_date.year, the_date.month,, 0, 0, 0)
        if is_due_date:
            the_date = the_date + timedelta (days=1)
        # NO UTC CONVERSION - it happens on the day we asked for - no adjustment required
        result = the_date.strftime(DATE_FORMAT_SHORT) 
        the_date = utc (the_date)   
        result = the_date.strftime(DATE_FORMAT_LONG)
    typ = 'due' if is_due_date else 'start'
    logger.debug ("formatted date for %s is %s:%s",, typ, result)
    return result

I've had problems with OSX/IOS calendar where it fails to pick up title changes for some time, I think it looks for new/deleted items regularly but doesn't re-sync updated ones every time.

Currently my Calendar apps are subscribed directly to the exported ics file which is published from dropbox and when I force them to update do instantly.

If your phone is displaying the calendar event in the same way as it was before you upgraded to V3.0.3 I'd suspect a cacheing issue.

Sorry for the rambling reply, but hopefully it'll shed some light on what's going on.
