How does WebCal.Guru work?

Think about a web browser, such as the one you're using right now (Chrome, Safari, Edge, Firefox, Opera, etc). A browser downloads a web page, such as this one, and displays it to the user. A calendar application does basically the same thing for calendar content. Aside from showing events created by yourself, your calendar application can download events from the web and display them in your calendar.

WebCal.Guru provides content for your calendar application to display in your calendar. Of course you select which content to show.

Calendar subscriptions are like browser's bookmarks - links pointing to the source of the data. The main difference is that a calendar application downloads the data automatically whereas a browser needs to be told what to download each time.

WebCal.Guru is not an application running on your device. There is nothing from this site that runs on your device. WebCal.Guru only provides data for your calendar application to display.

Step 1
