    Default 2 noob questions (gallery + calender)

    Hello,

    First post on this forum, I'll get to the point.

    I'm loving my Nexus 4 (except maybe battery life) and there are two things that I really can't figure out:

    1) How to create a calendar synch with my girlfriends Nexus 7 so that we can see each other's appointments (I have a private and a work account, and I want her to see all my appointments, she only has a private account)

    2) How to created new folders in the gallery so that I can sort my pictures.

    I've been looking like crazy, but I can't find it

    I can answer #2. Download a file manager app. I use 'File Manager' it works great. You can create folders, sort out your photos.

    Thanks.
    I have file manager, and I've tried to create a new folder in DCIM\camera , but I can't see the folder in my gallery. It seems weird that there is no easy drag and drop functionality in the gallery. I used to have it in my gingerbread phone?

    edit: Astro file manager works. Still, it seems like a hassle for what should be a standard feature.

    1. You need to share your calendar. There doesnt seem to be a way to do this from the Calendar app.
    Visit the Google Calendar site on a desktop browser. Hover over the calendar you wish to share (on the left bar). You should see a downward triangle appear. Click that to open the menu and theres an option to share the calendar.
    Repeat on your gfs account.
    Then just make sure all your calendars are synced on your N7s.

    2. You wont see any folders in the Gallery app that doesnt have photos. Also, its not necessary to create folders within DCIM\camera\ for it to show up in the Gallery app. The Gallery app will pick up any folder in the storage partition.

    Thanks, doing this now, and will do this tonight for my gf. This seems to work for the google calendars, Is it possible to make this work for the account on the corporate exchange server?
