but none yield 100% data fidelity.
1. Hub sends out an email at the start of every day with a list of
"upcoming" events and reminders + list of "NOW" items. (Just titles

can get Chandler Notes into calendar clients/services that support

The only app that supports both subscribing to calendars and vtodos
and syncing with mobile devices is Apple iCal. Are there any others
for which this workflow would work?
