Clients for Calendar Server

Calendar Server is based on the open CalDAV (Calendaring Extensions to WebDAV) standard, which means that client calendaring applications must also be CalDAV-compatible. Not surprising, all Apple calendar clients for Mac and iOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch) use CalDAV.

In addition to CalDAV compatibility, some calendar clients are compatible with Mountain Lion Server’s push notification service. These clients include iCal in Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.7 as well as Calendar in OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion), and iOS 3 and later.

CalDAV clients exist for Windows, Linux, and older versions of Mac OS X that work with Calendar Server to various degrees. The following clients support the CalDAV standard:
