Follow up: Having finally figured out how to work with Mavericks Calendar and iCloud, I realized that QuickCal does not enter events into iCloud calendars, only On Your Mac. This means new events entered through QuickCal will not be pushed or synced through iCloud to your phone. Developer, is this fixable?
I use this on Mavericks. It works as well as it did before: stable, convenient, easy to master. One new glitch with the most recent update: whereas before you signaled a time range by a dash between start and end time, now the dash is interpreted as part of the event description and is entirely unnecessary to signal a time range. Simply putting the two times one after the other creates the range. I have never been able to figure out how to add notes or url links.
R seems blazing fast and stable. User interface is kind of spartan and old-looking if you like that. Bookmark import does not seem to sort, just makes a subfolder. There seems to be no bookmark bar for quickest access to favorites.
Must reneg. Roccat keeps quitting on me. I think it is the nfl “game cast” refreshes that are giving it trouble.
Runecats, thanks for reading and replying. I use Roccat 3.9 on Mavericks/MacBook Air. Roccat BookmarksBar has such little spaces for each bookmark and lacks separators so that it is pretty unreadable. For sports sites with their updating game-tracking, you have to go to each site (nfl.com, nba.com, nhl.com) and click on any game. There’s no one main address. While we are at it, the tabs bar for open webpages could use better signaling as to which tab is being viewed. The little blue line is not really eye-catching.
NBA scoreboard still seems broken.
Can this be used at a point of entry, like Apple's Time Capsule, so it need not be loaded separately onto every computer on a network?
Great widget broken by Mavericks.
My mistake. Not broken! Finder messages hidden behind application windows asks for access to Calendar. Click okay, restart computer, and it's back.
On OSX 10.8.5 I use MR v. 1.3.9 from Aug 2013. It works. And it works great. What a time-saver.
From longtime user: Minimal clutter, maximal utility, persistently stable, sufficiently customizable (can: arrange feeds however you want, separate by separator lines, and group feeds into folders). On MBAir OS 10.8.4, I am still using v. 1.12 freeware.
The application provides a good service, does what it says, is easy as pie to set up, has a nice, clean interface, and -- to be much appreciated -- is free. It's an ideal 1.0. In my opinion, some additional features would make it even more useful and convenient: sticking it in the menubar; maybe a "keep on top of other apps" with an opacity control; making different orderings one-click possible, like by alphabet, %change, and a savable favorite order. Many people might appreciate additional info columns, whether from the client-side (shares purchased etc., net value) or the market-side (shares exchanged etc.).
