Re: Starting with iOS 14.5 BirdieSync App fails to "Find BirdieSync server"

BirdieSync app for iPhone/iPad, version 3.0.0.13 has been released and should be progressively available on the App Store. On iOS 14.5 or later, if you selected "Find BirdieSync server" in BirdieSync app options or uses the server hostname, the first time you try to connect, you should see a popup w...

Apple granted the required permission. A new version of BirdieSync app has been submitted for review. I'll keep you informed when it's finally available.

Re: Starting with iOS 14.5 BirdieSync App fails to "Find BirdieSync server"

Hello KingTutt, I'm sorry for the annoyance. It seems that iOS 14.5 now requires BirdieSync app an additional permission so that it is able to dialog and locate BirdieSync server. The appropriate Apple service has been contacted so that BirdieSync app is granted such permission. Let's hope they'll a...

Re: Can't synchronize Events more than 1 year in future

Hello Maxx, I already answered to you by email from the Help desk, but I'll also answer on this forum in case other users face the same problem: Due to internal technology (API) limitations on Apple devices, it is only possible to synchronize events on a 4 years period. Which means that it's possibl...

Re: how to resolve <null date> failures

Hello osh000,

While your mobile device is connected to BirdieSync server (this is important to be able to retrieve its logs), could you please build a log archive with BirdieSync menu "Help/Archive logs..." and send it to support(at)birdiesync(dot)com ?
Thanks.

Re: Problem syncing "notes" in contacts

Hello eTom, This problem has been identified and a special authorization request has been sent to Apple who finally granted it. But the provided entitlement was not the one expected and would cause the loss of settings and synchronization configuration. Following review team recommendation, Apple su...

Re: BirdieSync under wine on linux

I made tests on an older version of Ubuntu (18.04). I checked and the event and task calendars were properly displayed. So you mean that you see the name of an address book among the calendar list of events and tasks ? Can you confirm that Thunderbird is connected to BirdieSync server ? (you should ...

If you don't see all your address books, that may because "Filter" button is enabled. By default, empty calendars with no matching calendar enabled in other sources ar...

Re: BirdieSync under wine on linux

Hello Pastim, Some efforts were done in the past to make BirdieSync compatible with Wine. Wine doesn't fully support all Windows API calls, and cannot replicate the exact behavior of these APIs. Anyway, it was possible to run BirdieSync on Wine after some tweaks and specific internal adaptations. Yo...

Re: Thunderbird 3.2.4.2 -- Sooooo sloooow

Checking for duplicates might take time (as Combine first synchronization mode) because all contacts on each sources need to be compared one by one. So it is not recommended to leave this option checked all the time if you want to have quick synchronizations.

Re: Apple iPhone Contact's Birthday can cause Sync Failure

Hello Mike, I could make some tests regarding the managing of birthday dates without a year on iOS. As you mentioned it seems that birthdays without a year may be associated with year 1604. Note that if you manually enter this year in the contact birthday, the year disappears. It's the same year whi...
