Great looking product. Hopeless price. I do a modest amount of life hacking, largely around kGTD and 43 Folders, and have purchased a reasonable amount of software at prices< $100. I was excited to see the Macupdate list but like the other reviewers I won"t even download at that price. I am adding this comment in the hope that other develpers will notice the volume of interest and do something similar at a reasonable cost

It really is not fair to use the star ratings if you have not even tried the app. I understand you think it too expensive and you state you will not even download it... that is not a fair basis for a one star across the board rating.

I am looking for an application to work alongside iCal. I have been using BurnoutMenu but it won't launch in my newly installed 10.4.2 (Ongoing Saga!). Anyway back to this software. I visited the site sure that I had tracked down what I was looking for, and sure enough It seems that this does everything I want. Screenshots of the software demonstrate the functionality which seems very comprehensive. I have to admit that like other reviewers here I was very disappointed with the cost. I buy and support many shareware applications. This is the first time I have been completely put off by the the cost. Whilst I am in no doubt that a lot of hard work and many hours result in very competent software, I can't justify paying in exess of $30 for software that compliments iCal which itself is cost free. I would pay for this if it was priced at about $15 to $20, but as it is I haven't even downloaded the software to try. Accordingly I have reluctantly rated this 1 Worst in all categories.

I believe that if this product were pitched at a more realistic price, more potential customers would try it which in turn may result in increased sales. I'd be interested to know just how many have purchased at the current price!

I had made up my mind - and coincidentally, it exactly matched the poster below. A nice idea and could do the job nicely - but at that price? No way and no download. Too expensive.

Maybe a great app., since it addresses a real problem (the process for setting up appointments in iCal is very clumsy), but at this price I'm not even going to try a demo. I agree with the previous poster about the money. The author ought to realize he might well make more money selling many copies at $10 a pop than by selling very fewer for $30. That's basic Econ. 101 stuff.

Great idea, but for 30$ I'm not willing to even try it. Too expensive for a simple expendable utility.

works sporadically and never without editing in my experience.
will not parse correctly most text that I clip from e-mails which is where it is used most.
needs to be more 'intelligent'

Maybe its just me, but I really couldn't figure it out... didn't try too hard, but then again, I shouldn't have to with a good piece of software.
