If you're encountering problems please contact us: [email protected] or have a look at our forums: instead of down-voting the app so that we can provide support.

DAVdroid is the only all-in-one synchronization solution for your contacts (CardDAV), calendars (CalDAV) and your tasks (based on VTODO). The app is easy to set up and integrates perfectly with your favorite calendar/contacts app (including default apps). It can also be used seperately, if you either have CalDAV, CardDAV or only Tasks.

Compatible with almost every CalDAV/CardDAV servers and services, including OwnCloud, iCloud and OS X Server!

After installing, you can add a DAVdroid account from within the app. See for help. For more information, please see the FAQ: and our forums:

Key features:

⊛ Sync your DAV calendars (CalDAV) and address-books (CardDAV) and Tasks in a single app
⊛ Two-way synchronization (server ↔ client)
⊛ Native Android 4+ implementation
⊛ Flawless integration with your device and favorite apps
⊛ Easy setup (resource auto-detection, support for self-signed certificates)
⊛ Fast algorithms for high performance (CTag/ETag, limit sync time range for past events)
⊛ Optimized for phones and tablets
⊛ Super-secure and we respect your privacy!
⊛ DAVdroid is completely open source

Important compatibility notes

For all Android 4.1 and all Samsung users: There's an Android bug that maybe causes accounts to be lost after a device reboot. To avoid this issue, please install the free app "DAVdroid JB Workaround". Samsung users: The problem doesn't occur if you download DAVdroid using Samsung Store or Amazon Store.

On some Android 4.4.2 devices, DAVdroid accounts will disappear after an app update. If you experience this issue, please install the free app "DAVdroid JB Workaround". Details:

Attention: DAVdroid must not be moved to the SD card! This will cause strange behaviour, including account and data loss.

Get the best out of this app …

⊛ … when using with your own DAV server (Radicale, DAViCal, SabreDAV, Baikal, …) and HTTPS – so you own and control all your data while having the comfort of synchronization between various devices. Or use a hosted DAV service you trust or the one of your company.
⊛ … and combine it with Evolution / Lightning / etc. on your laptop / PC

Why is it secure?

⊛ Source code is available (see homepage)
⊛ No need for giving your contacts/calendars to Facebook, Google, etc. Use your own server (or a trusted one)!
⊛ TLS is recommended to protected your communication so synchronization is secure even when using open Wi-Fi networks.

OK with owncloud I used it to sync calendar and contact from owncloud server. Thx to devel guys!

Peter Stewart

Not bad but some snags No 1 gripe: I see this has been fixed, good stuff, will try it out: cannot change an account's password. This is 2015, passwords get expired, and in spite of it being a paid app, the developer is not interested in fixing this. Secondly it does not seem to sync changes to existing appointments properly on Oracle Beehive

Not working properly on Lollipop Hi, I have purchased this and installed it in my Xperia Z2 which was running on KitKat. My server is Baikal. It was working flawlessly. However, things started to act weirdly after I upgraded my phone to Lollipop. Everytime I add a new contact in the phone, the name will always become empty. After I sync the database, I access the addressbook via my PC and I can see the new entry. It only has the phone number. I'm not sure is this, lollipop's fault or davdroid's fault. UPDATE #2: More weird things. Some contacts are missing in the phone, but it is available in the baikal database. I verified it by installing CardDAV-Sync free beta by Marten Gajda and I can find the contact after that. Really weird. I really hope that I don't have to buy another apps after I have purchased this.

Nanna Yabisnes

Just works One of those apps you are likely to forget are even installed because once configured they just do their job, but an important one for everybody who cares about controlling their personal data. Six stars for developer responsiveness - he helped me work around a badly configured server faster than I could say "bug"!

A Google User

Very nice Pretty simple to use once there are established calendars/contacts on the server. Excellent support by the developer!

Frank Parker

Often fails to synchronize ... and doesn't tell me much more than that.

Simon Schug

Contact Sync Problem [quickly solved] [EDIT: Great communication with the developers who reacted quickly and solved the issue for me. Indispensable Application!]Unfortunately, the app stopped working. Contact sync is broken for me (in the sync process all contacts appear, but are deleted shortly after)

Hovannes Abramyan

Great app New update fixes sync error in previous version. Developer is great! Very responsive.

George Rawlinson

Seamless integration Hello! This app provides hassle-free integration with CardDAV & CalDAV. I am using this on ownCloud 7+ and it is pretty darned easy to setup. Definitely worth considering if you're looking to exit the non standards-compliant Google ecosystem. I would go in more detail, but the other reviews speak for themselves.

Jordan Peterson

Oopps guys. Missed a big detail Every time I add a new calendar, I have to remove the caldav account and re add so to get calendar sync check list to add to the sync? Sorry guys this app is not scalable. Going back to caldav-sync and carddav-sync. Thx

Quentin Pidduck

Great for our Owncloud integration Get away from Exchange! This app works stupidly well with our servers, thanks dev team.

Jesse TeKrony

Great App for Ditching Google This app has allowed me to almost completely replace all Google services with my own hosted by ownCloud. My calendar and contacts are now all stored in my ownCloud, under my control, and they all sync seamlessly thanks to this app.

Lee Westenberger

Now works perfectly Get crash on trying to add account. Using owncloud. Have sent crash reports hopefully can fix as I think this would be best client. . Update: now works as I hoped it would when first installed. Great updates.

Christian Velin

Crap app No possibility of trying before buying, sucks when the app doesn't work. Cannot add owncloud url without getting I/O error.

A Google User

Needs more work Quite an immature product. Would not have bought it if I have known earlier. Does not allow configuration change once it is set up. No option to change sync interval.

Pavol Panelovic

Bad application I'm not able use home server. Do not allow self signed https certificate. Not usable.

Franz Stauder

Great! Works flawlessly since the last update on galaxy s5 with owncloud installation as backend.. The last update corrected some issues I had with my ssl certificate on my tls vhost.. As said, all great since then..

Tom Coates

Works brilliantly with Contactzilla After moving from iOS which has fantastic CardDAV support I was surprised to find it was not baked in to Android. DAVdroid solved this and meant I could access my Contactzilla address books on my Nexus 5 and 7.

Stefan Hrdlicka

Great App, friendly support works great with my Radicale CalDAV server :).

Machello Hengsti

Wonderful. It just works No problems far. Well done, thank you

barba tron

It's not there yet But then, there's no app available that does it all. Still missing : note and task sync via caldav. And, Editing existing profiles to add calendars. Anyway, what it does so far, does it right. No hassle and no strange licence verification to unknown proxy's. By any means, a great way to minimise using Google services.

Robin Barnfather

Great App Well impressed with this app as far as calendar sync functionality is concerned - slick , seamless and stable working with my owncloud box Unfortunately because of a 'bug/feature' in the only android phone I own (HTC one x) - it is not at all compatible with the contacts side of this software and caused me no end of frustration trying to get it working At the time of purchase/download this was not mentioned - so beware if the phone you wish to use this with is a HTC one x and your running the std firmware/software - contacts simply will not work - not even 1 way The team have suggested a way I may be able to get this to work (custom firmware/software) - and is something I am looking into as I had really hoped this software would achieve for me Had it worked out of the box it would easily get top marks from me The team have emailed me a couple of times to try and sort out my issue with contacts - so despite it only half working on my phone I have given above half score

victor bonhomme

Perfect +++ Awsome app that I use to connect my owncloud. It took me a bit time too configure my startssl certificate and finally have the connection working over ssl (59$ two years for a wildcard), but this was not related to Davdroid. Well worth its price! Now google dont know who i meet, where I go...

Tomáš Volf

great app great appp, works just fine. just two things: 1) after update my accounts were deleted :/ 2) would be nice for it to handle redirects :)

Silvano Cirujano Cuesta

Not the price worth Birthdays and groups are not synchronized. Almost no configuration options.

w kern

Works fine on CE edition of kolab 3.1 just point it at the /iRony folder and it does the right thing

Kirill Petrov

It just works This is the only caldav sync app that simply worked. The rest such as caldav-sync, SolCalendar, etc did not.

Patrick Lang

Simple and powerful This simple tool does not offer a common app-interface, but the possibility to add a WebDAV-Account in the settings of Android. This makes it really simple to add a new WebDAV-Account to my phone and synchronize my calendar and contacts. I tried it with Fruux, which worked perfectly out of the box.

Christoph Wagner

Does exactly what it says And in a better way than the other applications I tried. Using it with ownCloud on my own server :)

Ignacio Galmarino

Can't get a refund I tested this app but it did not connect to my Zimbra Server. I uninstalled it but I could not get a refund. What it wrong ?

Tara Bellafiore

Easy and Open Seamless integration with the calDAV and cardDAV standard, would love to see Task support.

Evgenij Spitsyn

Please add possibility to sync folders over WebDav.

Christopher Campion

Worked for awhile After over a month of back and forth with the developer, it finally worked on my stock Sprint S4. I am now running CyanogenMod 12.1 and it refuses to sync my calendars again. Privacy Guard is off but still nothing. I'm forced to switch to something else.

Damion Gans

Awesome Now it's even more awesome now it has tasks support.

Benjamin Sproule

Works but lacks features It works, but can't alter the synced calendars!

Mike Beaton

Jolly good Seems to work really well. There was a problem with iCloud contacts recently, I think Apple changed something. Developer seems to have fixed it, some other apps on store still not working. I do have a problem with seeing two copies of my iCloud calendar events. I've even tried fully clearing my calendar storage and they still come back duplicated (only on this device), so I'm not quite sure what to try next.

Robin Barnfather

Got rid of the HTC software on my One X and installed a custom brilliantly and keeps everything (contacts and calendar) perfectly in sync with my owncloud server - could not ask for more :D

Google User

:) Contact pictures are well synced to the Posteo server, but does not appear in the Mac-addressbook! With an other app this works.

Danny Winn

Yes Using it for calendars, contacts and tasks. Works perfect. Thank you, guys. Good job.

Greg M

Works with recent davmail to help integrate with exchange. Thanks all!

Micah Cheng

Can i sync group and notes?

Eugen Kuksa

Great syncing app! It integrates well with Android 5.1.1 on my Sony Xperia Z2 mobile device and Baikal server. There are only two flaws, though: 1) Re-selecting the calendars is not possible. If you add a new calendar on your server, you need to add a new DAVdroid account to enable syncing with this new calendar. There is no option yet to re-scan for new calendars and re-select them. 2) Sony's Contacts app: If you only fill in the "combined name", first name and last name are not properly recognised. You need to enter first name and last name separately after expanding the name field to several detailed fields in the contacts app. I think, however, this is an issue with Baikal and Sony's contacts app.

Zoltan Matok

Dosn't work on any carddav server. Don't waste your Money I have tried: Apple iCloud, Marketcircle Daylite, Synology Carddav Server Not sync at all. Other Apps sync with same settings smoothly.

Stavros Korokithakis

Fantastic syncing application I use it with Radicale to sync my calendars and contacts to my own server, it works flawlessly. Setup is one screen, and everything works as it should. Can't recommend Radicale+DAVdroid enough.

Bogdan Hruban

Pretty easy to use. It gets the job done.

Maximilian Kaul

Great app - even better support I have been using this app for a while with my owncloud server and I recommend it! The support is nice, helpful and fast! Thank you.

Laeeth Isharc

Doesn't work with my caldav only (but not carddav) server

A Google User

I wasn't quite happy with it at first but its much better now.

Brano Ilkovic

it works with owncloud please make it trust self signed certificates without importing them to android, not everybody have rooted device

Patrick C. F. Ernzer

works a treat.

Andreas Rüdel

Does what it says and then some Almost perfect. Works perfect with my owncloud setup. Add some wizards for well known stuff (yes, its all in the FAQ but I pay for features) and integrate the certificate wizard (why another app to integrate my self-signed cert? Security concerns?) and I'll give 5 stars

A Google User

Very nice Pretty simple to use once there are established calendars/contacts on the server. Excellent support by the developer!

Mike Beaton

Works really well Works really well. If removing and re-adding a calendar, it is worth clearing down the device calendar storage (i.e. 'Clear Data' on the Calendar Storage app; assuming all your calendars are in the cloud, of course), to speed up the process of removing the old events.

Pho Everyum

Had to reinstall couple of times Now it works fine as before. Great app!

Nanna Yabisnes

Just works One of those apps you are likely to forget are even installed because once configured they just do their job - and this one's is an important one for everybody who cares about keeping control of their personal data. Six stars for developer responsiveness - he helped me work around a badly configured server faster than I could say "bug"!

Jonas Bushart

Works as it should Moreover than just a great sync app you can get excellent, fast and competent support. Price is totally justified to give some small amount back for all the work.

Nigel Reed

What have you done! It was working beautifully connecting to the two calendars on my synology server. Today it updated to v1 and now the accounts have gone. I'm on v6 of android. After a lot of effort it finally worked again. If it ain't broke...

Benjamin Grogg

Update works well. I had to uninstall, reinstall and setup the app newly. After these steps all works perfectly with my Baïkal Server. Thanks a lot for this great app.

Michael Corbit

Very nice! I've been using DavDroid because it's open source and with the belief it would eventually offer full-featured sync with Kolab. With this last update it now delivers on that promise, along with a very nice Material Design interface.

Christian Gogolin

Works great Super useful and reliable.

Mace Moneta

Awesome Set it up and forget it; it just works. Instead of TLS, I use ssh tunnels via the SPT app. No problems at all.

Trent Payne

Wow Reliable synchronisation with clean user interface

Patrick C. F. Ernzer

This is one of my must haves on Android.

Kristopher Kolpin

Doesn't Work! Does not work with Axigen Groupware.
