Almost any calendar application works
Almost all applications work fine. In order to use WebCal.fi calendars, your calendar application must
- support iCalendar (.ics) files
- download them automatically
If you don't know if your app/device is supported just try to subscribe and see if it works.
- If the subscription buttons don't work, copy the address manually.
- If you're using Google Calendar (or other web service), subscribe manually.
- Most mobile devices (other than Apple's) require you to subscribe the calendar to Google Calendar and then sync the calendar to your device with Google Sync or CalenGoo.
The list below contains only applications which have been tested to work or not to work. There are lots of calendar applications outside the list which work just fine.
If you use an application not on the list, please send feedback to email@example.com on whether or not it works with WebCal.
