Anyone know if there are any calendar apps that support webcal/ics format subscriptions? school uses these calendars, so would love to be able to subscribe to them & consolidate them into a single calendar view in Mango instead of viewing them on the web one at a time

@wp_newbie, yes; the default calendar app supports this feature.

For instance you want to subscribe for FIFA 2014 World Cup schedule.

  • Open http://calendar.live.com/ (or go to http://www.outlook.com/ tap on the down arrow in top ribbon and then select Calendar)
  • Navigate to Import (in top ribbon).
  • Navigate to Subscription (left pane)
  • Enter this URL: webcal://www1.skysports.com/calendars/football/fixtures/competitions/worldcup
  • Give it a name, select color (lime), choose charm (trophy; its a world cup!) and click Subscribe.
  • In your Windows Phone refresh the associated Hotmail/Outlook account's mail.
  • Open calendar app and you will find the scheduled!

Note: Everything related to *.live.com (people, calendar, mail ..) get sync'd, when you refresh the associated mail.
