GSC 16/17: how to get notifications on your phone

One of the most common questions I get asked is whether I’m going to build a GSC app. The main attraction of an app would be to get push notifications so people don’t miss any weeks. The answer to that question is that I would love to build an app, but can’t really justify the outlay when I don’t make any money from the game. But, good news! I’ve figured out a way of getting notifications to your phone.

Below are the steps you need to take to add the GSC calendar to your iphone. I assume most smartphones will have a similar set of steps, but if you need those you’ll have to google them I’m afraid.
