    1) Follow Airscrew's instructions down to the bit where he talks about you setting up your calendar.
    2) On your iPhone go to settings, Passwords & Accounts, Add Account, Other, Add Subscribed Calendar.
    3) Where it asks for a server, type in (or copy in) the following URL as described by Airscrew:
    webcal://tides.mobilegeographics.com/ical/2089.ics
    where 2089 is the 4-digit code for Dover
    4) Enter, check it is the calendar you wanted, then Save
    5) Open your calendars and there it is!

    (That worked for me, I hope I've got all the steps ..)
    Brilliant - many thanks!

    Thank you Airscrew. Added, in spite of the fact that it's obviously rubbish according to some .

You can think of it as the digital equivalent of looking up the index of Reeds, then when you open your calendar, the digital equivalent of flipping the pages to the date of interest.

    Obviously, if you just use your phone for making calls, then you might not actually have a smart phone and as such I agree you would just be 'p. sing about'. If you do have a smart phone and only use it for calls, then you are really wasting your money and subscription on a device. A bit like owning a sailing yacht and motoring everywhere.

    Not disregarded, just adding a useful additional tool. I have a couple of tide apps on my phone and they're fine for the next few days, but having a year's tides in my diary when discussing a potential trip with friends is very handy. Also useful to have on my phone if I've no connection.
