Gmail widget not updating

If you rely on mobility and your calendar a lot, this is going to be a very huge issue. It’s entirely possible that you switched off Calendars when setting up the Gmail account (intentionally or accidentally). Also, after turning it on, quit and re-open the Calendar app.After the “demise” of a way for apps to use “push” in i OS 7, apps like Gmail have to rely on Manual refresh or something called “Fetch”. The Fetch/Push settings seem to work for Calendar events too.I’m enjoying this feature with my Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos.

These days, the setup is so easy that it all happens automatically once you sign in with your Gmail/Google credentials.

But there’s this remote possibility that Google/Gmail calendars are not synced to your i Phone’s calendar and that can be a big problem.

For Manual, you will have to pull down to refresh the calendars (from within the Calendar app → Calendars.) If nothing works, remove the Google account from Mail, Contacts, Calendars and re-add the account. Just before you add, make sure there’s no restriction in Gmail Calendar.

Has anyone experienced (or know a solution to) the gmail widget not updating?

The funny thing is my email widget (tied to exchange mail) works just fine.
