Hi, I'm Skylar. I want to give you a quick demonstration of how to connect to a calendar on someone else's server using your iPad. So slide to unlock and I've already got a URL picked out so let's say you were looking for a holiday calender or something like that, just Google it, you'll find a URL that looks something like this. You know a web address sometimes it'll start with webcal and at the end it'll say, blah, blah, blah dot ICS. That's a format that calenders on your iPad can understand. So I'm just going to rest my finger on this link in order to copy it, so copy and then I'm going to go to settings and under settings, mail, contacts and calenders, add account, other, add subscribed calender, double tap to paste, tap next, hit verifies with the calender and asks if I want to use a user name or password, SSl for security, remove alarms, yada, yada, yada, I don't want to do any of that i just want to add it as it is, so I tap save, now we see it listed here and if I go to my calenders, tap in the upper left and now I can see all of these different calenders. The one I just added is down here, subscribed asterisk, I'll turn that on, go to the year view and now I can see all the events that, that calender added. So on the 28th we see that there's a penumbral lunar eclipse and a full moon, both at the same time! That's how you add a calender to your iPad. Thanks for watching. I'm Skylar.
