Setting up Pod should take a few minutes at most. Here’s how to get started:
Connect your calendars
Pod supports calendars from Google, Exchange, and iCloud accounts that are connected to your phone.
If you don’t see your calendars in Pod’s calendar drawer , visit your iOS Settings to ensure you’ve connected them to your phone:
- Tap the
Settingsapp on your iOS home screen.
Accounts & Passwords.
If one of your accounts is missing from this list, tap
If you are using Google Calendar and your calendars aren’t showing up after the steps above, please ensure they are syncing.
In Pod’s Settings tab, verify your primary email addresses by sending a verification email or signing in via Google.
Why verify email addresses?
- Ensures that Pod-specific data (like hidden and linked events) are synced to all your iOS devices (today and for any future devices)
- Lets us keep you in the loop about future launches and product changes
- Enables contact sorting and Lists
- Enables Gmail and Google Calendar integration
Enable Notifications in Pod’s Settings tab so Pod can alert you about upcoming events and reminders.
To avoid duplicative alerts, you should turn off notifications for whatever calendar app you are currently using. In the iOS Settings app, tap
Notifications, find your existing calendar, and toggle
Allow Notifications off.
If you are a Reminders power-user, and you use the iOS Reminders app geofencing and lists/categorization features, we’d recommend you keep the Reminders app Notifications on, and use those instead of Pod’s, since Pod doesn’t support this full range of features. However, seeing Reminders in Pod next to your events is still extremely useful even if you use it in concert with the Reminders app.
