I have email through Google Apps that I access from my iPhone via the web. I can view all emails and do everything I need to do except view invites sent from others using Outlook. I see the message and who it was sent to, but none of the details about the actual time and place. I can't accept or reject the invite so it never gets added to my web calendar. Even if I look at my email using the "Desktop" link, it doesn't show the details of the invite. If I look at it from my laptop, I see the details and can accept the invite and have it show on my calendar.

I do not want to add this account as a mail account on my iPhone, so web access is the best. Other then not seeing the invite details, I have no other problems. Is there a way to see those details?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Just wondering, can you see those details due to some gmail lab addon on the desktop? – cregox Jun 1 '11 at 12:42
No, I don't have any add-ons on the desktop - I just see the full details when using a computer as opposed to the iPhone. On the iPhone, I only see who it's from and to, but not the time or location nor have the ability to accept the meeting – Wallace Sean Jun 1 '11 at 15:41
When you say "via the web" I'm assuming you mean using Safari? Have you tried using Google Chrome for iOS? – n8udd Mar 7 '14 at 16:32

Wallace, to get the full functionality, you should add your google apps as exchange account. Google has provided details for this at the following link:
