Master Tour iCal integration on your iPhone

on Wednesday, 16 December 2009. Posted in blog, master tour

Free download in the App Store for the iPhone or iPod Touch.

For all of you iPhone users out there, you now have two ways to view your tour information and schedules on your phone! The first way of course is through Master Tour Mobile, our custom iPhone application, which is available as a free download in the App Store for the iPhone or iPod Touch.

The second way allows you view your itinerary side-by-side with your calendar events within the iPhone Calendar. You do this by simply subscribing to a Master Tour iCal feed. To do this first go into Master Tour and click on Configure Calendar Sharing from within your tour's Overview tab. (Or have your tour manager supply you with this URL if you do not use Master Tour on your desktop). On this page click on the link that says "I want to subscribe to my tour itinerary on GMail" (You don't need to use GMail, you're just going to use the same feed URL) You will be prompted to create a Subscription URL by simply entering the email/pw that you use to log into Master Tour (MT will take care of all of the rest for you!).

Once you have completed this step, a Gmail Subscription URL will be automatically generated. Copy and paste this URL into an email and send it to yourself. Open the message on your iPhone, copy the URL, and then click on the Settings area on the phone's main menu. Open Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Under Accounts, choose Add Account and then choose "Other" as the type.

Choose Add Subscribed Calendar and then paste in your generated subscription URL into the Server field. Click SAVE after the account has been verified. Return to the main menu and click on your Calendar application. From here, you can click on Calendars button (in the upper left corner) and you will see your Master Tour Calendar added to the list of your existing calendars. You can then click View All Calendars to view all of your data together!

    While this does add a previously made calendar to the iPhone, any new events (created after the subscription link was generated) do not show up. The calendars do no sync. Please advise.

    Thanks!
