    Yes! It is a very useful, but it's a major limitation that you can not modify/delete your appointments using your iCal.

    Thanks for the feedback Marco. The reason its a 1-way sync and not 2-way sync is (unlike other diary applications) that WriteUpp appointments have extra attributes that dont feature in iCal/Google Calendar, principally - Appt Status and Appt Type. Much as we would like to we can't control these from within the Apple Calendar we can't. I hope this explains the situation.
