    I use Google calendar for my appointments, and recently found that my kids school have the ability to subscribe to their .ics calendar so I can keep up with what's going on. I can do it fine on Google, but when I try to do it on my ipad, it tells me it can't verify the information.

    Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? This is what the instructions say, thus what I'm doing.

    iOS
    Go to the Settings icon and choose "Mail, Contacts, Calendars"
    Select "Add Account..."
    Select "Other" at the bottom of the list
    Select "Add Subscribed Calendar"
    In the "Server" field enter the URL of the ICS feed and then click the "Next" button
    A detailed dialog window will open. Enter a meaningful description in the "Description" field
    Click the "Save" button

    I don't get to the "Detailed Dialog window" before it tells me it can't verify the information.

    Just add a google email account and pick only calendar as another option.

    That only gives me my calendar. Not the ones I subscribe to.

    See if this works:
    Using Safari go to m.google.com
    Then choose your device
    Then select the calendars to use.
    Hopefully those calendars will be available for you to select.
    Good Luck

    That didn't work either. I did however find an app called calendars that syncs with my google account. That worked fine but it wasn't a free app. The only thing I don't like about it is I don't see the current date until I open the app.
