Universalis

Using a registration code

If you have already bought a Universalis registration code from us then you can have the full Universalis content on your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch without having to pay again. If you think you have bought a registration code but haven’t got a record of what it is, email us using the “Contact Us” link at the bottom of this page, and we’ll try and look you up.

The instructions here are for the new version of Catholic Calendar, which was released at Easter 2017. If you get Catholic Calendar from the App Store now, you will automatically get the new version. If you installed Catholic Calendar before Easter 2017 (and didn’t update it) then the instructions for the older version are here. (If you aren’t sure which version you have, stay on this page and follow its instructions – they won’t do any harm).

Step 1. Get Catholic Calendar

It’s free. Tap on the button below.

AppStore link

Step 2. View this page on your device

You have to enter your registration code on your device itself. If you are looking at this page on your computer, it won’t work.

If you are already looking at this page on your device, you can skip to Step 3.

If you are looking at this page on your computer, here is how to view it on your device instead:

  1. On your device, open Safari.
  2. Visit the main page at universalis.com.
  3. Go to the very bottom of the page. You will see a message saying “If you have a Universalis registration code… tap here”.
  4. Tap on the message.
  5. You will see this page appear on your device.
  6. Abandon your computer and read this page on your device instead.

Step 3. On your device, enter your registration code

Now that you are looking at this page on your device, you can type your registration code into the box below and tap “Go”:

Registration code:
(The registration code is 9 digits: for instance, 123-456-789. You don't need to enter the hyphens.)
  1. When you tap “Go”, Safari will ask you if you want to open a link in “RC Calendar”. Say Yes. Catholic Calendar will open.
  2. Wait a few seconds (it may take up to a minute on a slow connection).
  3. A message will appear saying that the Universalis database has been downloaded and installed. If the message doesn’t appear at all after a couple of minutes, see the bottom of this page for advice.
  4. Your Catholic Calendar application will now behave just like the full Universalis that is purchased from the App Store.

There is only one minor difference between Universalis and Catholic Calendar with a registration code:

If the “Database has been installed” message doesn’t appear

The likeliest reason is that you are using the older (pre-Easter 2017) version of Catholic Calendar. The instructions for the older version are here. Otherwise, please use the “Contact us” link at the bottom of this page, and we’ll help you to sort everything out.
