TimeWorks displays the events from Apple's calendar application, iCal, in a window. Each event is displayed in a similar way to iCal and marches towards a finish line which is the time now.
  • You set how far you want to see into the future.
  • Events are displayed in a window on the desktop, over the screen saver.
  • An Exposé hotkey brings the display quickly into view when you need it.

Well this is strange. In 10.8 iCalViewer ran, but did not ‘see’ my calendars so nothing showed up on the desktop. Now I’ve installed 10.9 and it works just like it used to in 10.6. I hope a future update doesn’t break it, it sure is nice to have it back. Good thing I didn’t uninstall it!

I loved, and lived by, iCalViewer. It still 'runs' in 10.8.5, but it doesn't see any of my Apple calendars, it only sees my Google calendar which is blank anyway. Sadly that is still better than what TimeWorks does, which is nothing. Unless crashing counts as something. TW doesn't stay running long enough to even see the UI, that's assuming it has a UI because I wouldn't know. As is I wouldn't keep it on my Mac if it were free, which it isn't. DateLine seems to be the next best thing but I miss iCalViewer's "finish line" approach to showing appointments, meetings, etc…

PS: The above download link yields v1.2.7, not v1.2.6. Perhaps v1.2.6 works great but I will never know.

Interesting app and I've been after something that will put upcoming iCal appointments on the desktop for a while now. For me there are a couple of issues though.
- It insists on showing events from 'yesterday', wish there was a way to turn this off in preferences.
- Events go off the edge of the screen and are clipped (even when you turn on the border). Would be nice if the app used your screen dimensions to avoid this.
- Seems to be a bug where a new event is displayed twice when you're adding it to iCal. The fix is to quite/restart TimeWorks.

Despite this, I like the display and the fact that it works with my 3 monitor setup (notwithstanding the odd issue). Looking forward to some updates.

OK, sorry. I see on the website that there's a promised upgrade for some people, although nothing so far. Also, hopefully by the time we can get the discount, TimeWorks will be working.

The developer mentions "one unresolved issue" about TimeWorks on his website. LOL, has he noticed that the app DOESN'T EVEN OPEN under Mountain Lion? On both my new laptop and my new iMac, when I double-click on TimeWorks, Mac OS tells me this app should be moved to Trash.

the dev is aware and is working on it.

If the developer is aware of the problem, why doesn't he mention it under FAQ on his website? Oh, that would interfere with sales. :-(

Such a shame, I was really excited to try this, but it doesn't seem to work with other people's google calendars that have been shared with me and are in my iCal. Without this ability, TimeWorks is hobbled and fairly useless to me.

I'm using 10.6.8, so YMMV, of course...

Mmm ... it looks promising, but this (new) app has some serious bugs in Lion. I presume the dev is working like hell to fix them. We'll have to wait and see ...

I have purcachsed the application on 20 April 2010 and is now to pay again for an update. A nerve! I hope it is not a model for future software developers.
