An alternative to using CalDAV-sync and CardDAV-sync is DAVDroid. It
syncs both with just one account setup. The only issue I had with that
is that it wouldn't recognize my self signed nonCA certificate. I'm

had to redo the certificate as a CA-certificate (changing it in all the
configuration files where it was pointed to) and import it in my Android
device in order to make it digest it. It was quite a bit of work and
googling around and I couldn't reproduce it now without redoing the same
googling. So I don't know if you use https, if you want to go through
the exercise. Advantage is, it's free.

Is there any 'Help' for the browser interface on Android, it
doesn't seem work the same as the browser interface from Linux.
We couldn't (for example) work out how to create a new event in
the calendar, just tapping a date does nothing.
Can't tell - never used the ownCloud web interface with my Android browser.
Where does any created calendar or contacts get saved? There's a
calendar with a couple of events (we don't really know how we
created them) in owncloud but I can't find any trace of
