Forthcoming for iOS

Subscribe to calendars in ICS formats

Forthcoming helps you keep up with all of your web calendars in one place, so you always know what's happening at the places you care about. Our goal is to make the web's calendars available to you in the palm of your hand. More technically speaking, Forthcoming takes the pain out of following and managing calendars in the ICS and icalendar file formats.

Manage multiple ical / ICS calendar in Forthcoming for iPhone and iPad Drill into event details in Forthcoming for iOS

Forthcoming pulls events from all of your subscribed calendars into a single event stream. Add interesting events to your local iOS calendar with a single tap, or drill into an event to read more about it, view a map of its location, or share it with family and friends.

If you subscribe to remote calendars in Calendar on iOS, you know your agenda quickly fills up with events you are not interested in or do not have time for.


By moving all of your calendar subscriptions to a dedicated app, Forthcoming ensures your agenda stays personal. As you scroll through your event stream, only add events that strike you as interesting to your iOS calendar.


We hate subscriptions as much as you do, so our business model is simple: the basic features of Forthcoming are free to use. Beyond that, we have a one-time purchase that costs as much as a cup of coffee in San Francisco. 🌁

We just want to remain self-employed and maintain the development of the app. Thanks for your support. ❤️
