MenuCal is a simple menu item for Mac OS X. It features a drop down calendar that can display iCal information for any date. It is currently in its infancy, and this release is mainly intended to gather feedback. Please visit the website to see what it can and can't do in its current form.

MenuCal is considered donationware, if you like it, visit the website to donate. Otherwise feel free to use it for free if it suits you.

What's New

Version 0.8:
  • Back to having the month selector on top, since most people agreed it was better that way
  • I have hopefully caught all the memory bugs, so it should maybe possibly cross your fingers not crash anymore. No promises though... If it does crash, please contact me and let me know.
  • It should now pop up to the left of the dock if you have your dock on the right hand more...

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.3 or later

[OSX 10.4.6 w/ iLife 06] I love the menubar calendars, but this one doesn't seem to sync with my iCal. I can't see my events listed, which is the main reason to have this program for me.

this app is simple and effective, and does what it says, w/o a lot of fuss. great just to look up in the menu bar and see the date, and/or click to see the month's calendar if more info is needed.

thanks, good stuff.

Occassionally disappears from the menu bar. Re-installation necessary.

Choosing an paying a shareware fee for a clock replacement for Apple's date & time preference is in my opinion getting similar to accepting an invitation to dance in a mine field. Most are overpriced for what they do and many are unstable or lack the one feature you most desire when they meet the other criteria you want.

Soon after you pay the shareware fee many seem to disappear after an update or two or be sold off to someone else who then wants to stick you for another fee. Freeware versions seem to transform into expensive shareware versions after they promise not to. Finally when you finally find a usable basic simple product that does what you want it to do and pay your fee, the developer almost always feels that they have to come out with an "enhanced" version that complicates what was a nice simple and useful product with extra "features" that only a small minority might want or use.

The bottom line: if you don't care for the current selection of available clock replacements, be patient and wait a month instead of spending your money. For in a month you may very well be present with a number of new options and the one sort of would accepted may have disappeared along with some of the ones that you did not like at all.

So do your research, keep informed, try to stay with the freeware products if they can fulfill your needs to avoid the disappointment of spending money for something that you may not be pleased with later on, and enjoy you dance in the mine field of clock replacements.

This product looks like a reasonable candidate for the informed user.

A perfect alternative to the (non-free) MenuCalendarClock application. Actually, I prefer MenuCal over the MenuCalendarClock apllication due to its (MenuCal's) simplicity.

Well done Chad, and thanks!

A sliding pane on the bottom instead of a drawer would be more effective. Something like uEdits sliding panes.

MenuCalendarClock works with Jaguar and is more stable (in my experience), feature-rich and customizable.

See !
