    "All of a sudden", I'm having problems with my calendar on iOS. Nutshell:

    I'm using Google Calendar, and on my iPhone 5 and iPad 2, both on iOS 6.1, I am configured to access Google Calendar via an Exchange setup. I was also using CalenGoo on both to directly access Google Calendar, but due to issues of failure to sync unless I MANUALLY told it to or close/reopen the app, I have decided to dump that method and go through the push sync of the Exchange setup. So I removed/reinstalled CalenGoo (the only way I know to wipe its Google login and leave it accessing only the device's built-in calendar), and that's when merry hell started happening.

    In CalenGoo, if I change an event, it doesn't change, it either duplicates the event or nothing happens when I save the change.
    In the built-in Calendar, it turns off the view of the calendar when I save the change. Plus, the built-in calendar has severe limitations on functionality, such as making a change retro-active in a recurring series or being able to set a monthly recurrence to "every 2nd Tuesday".I

    I've tried Calvetica, and I'm hitting BOTH problems as CalenGoo and the built-in (dupes instead of changes, and turns off the calendar view), which leads me to conclude that the problem is not in CalenGoo, but the setup in iOS, either the built-in app database or in the sync. Syncing changes made FROM Google Calendar work just fine, and by extension when I set CalenGoo to sync directly with Google, it too works, if I remember to manually sync the changes.

    So, what's wrong with my iOS Exchange setup, and how do I fix it?

    In your main Settings on your device(s), what is set as your default calendar?

    My Exchange synced Google Calendar. It's listed as GMail calendar, and has my GMail address as the account name.

    Well, I solved the problem to my functional satisfaction, I had a setting wrong in CalenGoo that was preventing it from immediately uploading changes. The developer may rename the setting in a future version to better describe what it does.

    However, under that I still have the problem of the Google Calendar via Exchange not updating properly from my iOS devices.
