Note: Apple implemented our tweak as a default setting in 10.8 Mountain Lion. So no further development will go into iCal Classic Page Flip. The fix will continue to work in 10.7 Lion.

iCal Classic Page Flip is a little SIMBL plugin for those of us who are frustrated by the very slow page animation in the latest version of iCal (the one that comes with OS X 10.7 Lion). Both Monthly and Yearly views both have an animation of a turning page, which might be nice on the first look, but it's time consuming and slows down the work flow on the long run.

This software is the solution. It more...

It works for me too. But I remind everybody that this app is useless (working on Mac OS X 10.7.3) because you can disable the animation in the preferences (cmd+,). Navigate to Advanced and then turn on "Disable Page Flip Animation".

Not true. The feature is there since you installed the app. Delete everything related and the option will be gone.

Won-der-ful! I've been waiting for this feature from Apple since I saw the first Lion DP. Why has it only 448 downloads? Do people care so little about this annoying page flip?
Anyway, thank you for this plugin!

Because some of us have lives, and this isn't really very important (and works just fine on modern machines)? #firstworldproblems

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Easy of Use is a 4 due to manual install, but I wouldn't spend any time on an automated install.

If there was a 10 for value I'd giv it. This solves a huge time waster foisted on us by Apple.

Thanks to the developer(s) for this.

I don't recall an OS update from Apple that's had more demand from users to "return to the old way of doing things" than 10.7 Lion. Change back the mouse scrolling, return Mail to its old look, etc, etc.
