Hi Tonia. As you've mentioned, having your appointments show in calendar applications relies on the iCal standard, however when it comes to some things the Android platform doesn't like to conform to standards. We have tested using Android devices to subscribe to the Front Desk iCal calendar through Google Calendar, though unlike other platforms, you cannot choose how often the calendar should refresh. Instead, Google's support articles advise that the calendar will refresh at some point within 12 hours. You might try Googling 'Subscribing to iCal on Android' for another application that may be able to properly support iCal subscriptions on Android.
