Itsycal is my favorite replacement for MenuCalendarClock iCal. https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/49674/itsycal It's free, and it has most, if not all, of the same features. If you want something that's nearly identical, then Itsycal is for you.

Now this MenuCalendarClock tool is dead! … Oh sad, so sad. ...I loved this tool in my Menu Bar. It finally died on my new iMac. … I looked around and found "Dato" in the app store. It is even better then MenuCalendarClock, and it only costs 2 bucks.

OS 10.13.1 (High Sierra) MenuCalendar Clock Preferences / Menu Item / Show Calendar Icon / Position / Right Display is correct (right side of menu bar) until something happens up there and then the display flips over to the left. I reserve the left side for a display that rotates with different length displays so having something to the left of IT causes constant visual disturbance. The fix is to do a Command/click and drag to reposition the MenuCalendar Clock display to the right side. Is this something that requires attention from developers, a quick adjustment to the code?

Still no go with El Capitan DP6 - MenuCalendarClock simply cannot access Reminders, likely doesn't know where to look for. Developer abandoned the app after taking our money and didn't provide any updates or fixes since 2012. It would be great if someone who knows what line(s) of code to change could provide us with the fix, so Reminders in El Capitan can be accessed by MenuCalendarClock.

Nothing beats MCC's functionality, practicality and convenience of use. I use it since the inception and it works up to Yosemite - but has huge problem on El Capitan. Didn't work at all on El Capitan DP1. Works on DP2 but only partially as it is unable to access Reminders and Events. Hoping for a fix.

Well, I started to leave a quick reply below, but it turned into a review. I didn't get to leave a rating, so I'm posting it again. Version 4.5.2 is working perfectly in Yosemite 10.10.3. While itsycal may have some similar functions, it's in black & white and does not offer the customization or functionality of MCC iCal. I've used MCC iCal for years and love it! It does sooooo much more and looks sooooo much better than the Apple clock! Apple's font is monochrome and boring. There are 19 formats to display the time, plus you can set a custom format. The calendar icon can be displayed in color and I can choose a color for the opened calendar border. I can choose the font, color, and size of the time displayed in the menu bar. It's the only bright spot of color up there! I have it set in a bold font and colored cayenne. It's very easy to read at a quick glance, unlike the OEM font. It can be moved to the left of your other icons if you choose. Double-click a day in the calendar and Apple's Calendar app opens. Would be nice if it could open BusyCal or other calendar apps. I agree that $20 is too much, especially for what seems to be abandonware, but then it's still functioning normally on the most-recent OS. They could however add functionality to support more calendars. If it wasn't so expensive to begin with, they likely would have sold more copies and might have felt it was worthy of continued support.

Works but there is an issue when using with SecondBar.app in multi-monitor setup.. The menu for the MenuCalendarClock application shows on the SecondBar but not showing as an item on main menu. Then clicking on its menu item on SecondBar makes it disappear and reappear on the main menu and main screen, rather than on the secondary screen.

I like MenuCalendarClock a lot. Unfortunately it seems that the current developers at Objectpark does not really care about it anymore. They don't even mention it anymore on their website: http://www.objectpark.net The original creator of Calendarclock (Peter Maurer) still mentions the software on his website: http://petermaurer.name/software I hope, that Objectpark decides to give back CalendarClock to Peter Maurer, so that he can continue to develop it. It is my favourite calendar for the menu and it would be a shame, if it would be lost... .

Same review as Psychiatry. I used to love this app, but with Mavericks and multiple displays, it's too buggy. I love looking at it but the second I click on it, then it's all whacked. Let's hope someone grabs the baton and continues doing something as great.

I love MenuCalendarClock iCal. It use to be a 5-Star app on all counts. The biggest problem is that it is DEAD software. It has not been updated for 2 years. The latest version was released for Mac OS X 10.7. We are at Mac OS X 10.9. ObjectPark Software's page for MenuCalendarClock is copyrighted 2007. This means it hasn't been updated in 6 years. The Update Online... menu item no longer works. It takes you to a non-existent web page. In Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks, MenuCalendarClock gets mixed up and disappears when you have two or more monitors with a menubar on each monitor. MenuCalendarClock has become old and creaky with parts falling off. It no longer is earns 5-stars. If FantastiCal had a menubar clock or if its icon could be moved to the right side of the menubar, I would stop using MenuCalendarClock iCal.

Excellent application but needs to be updated for Mavericks. Does not work fully on either Mavericks DP1 or DP2. Specifically, the calender itself displays fine but the linked calendar entries from Google or Yahoo not displayed. When I go to preferences---then Calendar--there is not the option to select calendar input source(s).

Nice app, but like far too many menubar apps (Day-O, InstantShot!, Numi, et al.), it cannot be positioned with Command-drag. (But at least it doesn't change position on every reboot like many of the others often do.) And like Day-O, it forces itself into the far right corner position on systems where Spotlight is disabled and replaced with multiXFinder. It would be nice to be able to position the app where I'm used to having a clock (to the right of everything EXCEPT multiXFinder).

It should be noted that the basic features of MenuCalendarClock are FREE. It's stated in the description above, and on the developer's web site: "Get a registration (for $19.95 only) to access advanced features or use the basic features for free." There's a little table at the bottom of the main page that explains the difference between the free and registered features: http://www.objectpark.net/mcc.html It should also be noted that Day-O was a hack to update MenuCalendarClock's basic functionality to work in Lion, but now that MenuCalendarClock itself has been updated and fixed for Lion, it serves less of a purpose. Note that on the Day-O web page, the author states clearly: "It’s free, as-is (which means I’m not providing support, taking feature requests, addressing perceived inadequacies or releasing the source code)."

This has been a very useful tool for me for a long time. Nice to be able to see for instance: Tue 05/29 7:02:15 in the menu bar, and have a calendar right there handy with iCal notifications and the like. There has been one harmless bug where MCC would pop open upon closing certain other programs, which was weird, but that may very well have been fixed with this release, not sure yet. Listing should be clarified however not to imply that Lion is required; this version still works on Snow Leopard, and is compatible w/ Lion.

As some someone who paid for this and had to rely on it for a period of time, my experience is that this is a dated and unreliable program which is not sufficiently supported by the developer. I feel compelled to advise you all not to spend $20 on this but to spend your money on same priced or cheaper competing products on this website which simply blow Menucalendarclock out of the water.

Sorry for repeating the post, but I can't find the way to edit my reply to Flec65, thus I have to repost in order to correct the period of no updates from 12 to 18 months: Developer is showing complete disrespect to loyal customers who paid for the application a lot of money (original version and then the upgrades) - no update for past 18 months, while OSX has been updated several times during that period and now upgraded to Lion. The developer's website shows that company is still in business selling 18 months old version and not bothering to honor the obligations to existing customers. Shame!!!

Many annoying bugs for me under Lion (10.7.1) even after a clean reinstall of the app. The dropdown opens every time I do a word look up (3 fingers tap) in any other apps. The iCal events don't appear in the list anymore and the to-do items (reminders) are all displayed, no matter how I set those preferences. Am I the only one with these bugs in Lion?

I'd wish for an update... almost 18 months without any news from the developer. Meanwhile, I'm eyeing Fantastical, which does get great reviews on the AppStore and features a natural language engine that smartly creates events for you. And the app looks more like 2011 overall too, which sadly cannot be said about MCC.

MenuCalendarClock gives you several nice customization options for your menubar clock. It also integrates well with iCal. I have found MCC perfectly stable. I have used it for many years and am generally happy with it. The display of iCal information is not all that easy on the eye, certainly not to take in at a glance. Inputting information and events takes you through several windows. There are free menubar items and widgets that input new events into iCal a bit more simply and display iCal info more effectively. In terms of bang for your buck, IMHO, you are really paying to customize your menubar clock.

I'm running MenuCalendarClock's version 4.1.2 on OS X 10.6.7, with Spaces enabled (I chose to have the app displayed on every space). MenuCalendarClock sits in your menubar as a small calendar icon (you can choose between 3 icon alternatives), and optionally also replaces the system clock (you can customize the clock's time format, font and color). There's a dock icon as well, which you can opt to hide, but the developer doesn't recommend it. Upon clicking the menubar icon (or alternatively, you can set a hotkey), a small calendar pops up beneath the menubar, displaying the current month. The display preferences allow you various adjustments (like weeks starting on Mondays, tooltips, etc... There's an option to show Sundays in red, but I haven't found such option for Saturdays). If you click on a day once, a Schedule slides from the bottom of the calendar, displaying said day's events. You can click the options' cogwheel (bottom right beneath the calendar) to add an event or a to-do item to the selected day. Double-clicking a day opens iCal in month view but you can check an option to open iCal in day view. Arrows at the bottom left of the calendar allow you to go backwards/forward between months, or go to the present day. Bottom right, there's an options "cogwheel" (mentioned above), to-do items button and close button. MenuCalendarClock syncs with iCal. You can select which iCal calendars to sync with. There's an option to add a Birthdays calendar (you need to create an extra iCal calendar). All in all, I like the app's compact look, and iCal syncing went fine for me. I do have to note, though, that the transaction did not go smoothly for me. Despite completing payment, the e-commerce platform I'd been transferred to to make the purchase (I think it was one of Digital River's) presented an error instead of supplying me with a license code. I emailed the developer (Objectpark) using the email address supplied by the e-commerce service -- support AT objectpark DOT net -- but the email bounced ("Recipient address rejected"). So I went to Objectpark's website, found there a different email address for support, and emailed the developer again, this time to the new address. That email was likely delivered (at least, I didn't get a "delivery failed" notification), but the developer hasn't responded. So, I emailed the e-commerce platform's customers service, and after about 2 or 3 emails, they finally emailed me the license code. If you purchase the software, I hope the transaction goes smoother for you.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT and while I've had wonderful products purchased from this site the company Ergonis, software Pagico, and wrote how delighted I was with FolderBrander. I still strongly believe MacUpdate is partially responsible. When you continue to sell their product and yet I may not upgrade yet should and they are clueless as to who I am? Something is terribly wrong. While I understand there was a terrible flood, this was way before then. If you go to their site they are offtering the product for $15.95 so why are you selling it for $19.95? I LOVE your company and think you do a great service to everyone. Perhaps I'll just bite the dust because of all the wonderful apps and the people behind them I believe in. But when you start getting compaints, I feel you should act upon them "if" they are repetitive." ALL I can say is this won't stop me from believing and appreciating in programmers. To me YOU OUT THERE, rock, you make my day and I apologize that I have to write this, truly and others must know. I don't think having to make people place star rating simply to be honest is right either. They don't deserve any stars.

I've posted way too many comments/reviews on this, so this is the last conclusive one - Bottom line, it doesn't do what its supposed to do so its pointless paying for this software. Anyone developer selling their software should at least make sure it works. I'm talking about the inability of the software to detail which calendar events are to be posted to, alarm times being posted differently to what has been entered...I could go on. If I'm being kind, it may be because of the difficulties the developers have had in trying to make the software work on present versions of OS X. But these are all things that need to work properly for people that are prepared to shell out for this software. Not that we'd know for sure why these problems occur, as the developers just don't respond to enquiries. Hence, the impression is given that the developers have thrown their hands in the air and given up on this software, while at the same time, allowing themselves to be enriched by gullible customers (yes, like me). I've now come to the conclusion that if you don't need exchange and want to improve ical with reliable software that works, you're going to have to pay properly for it in the form of Busycal. It isn't cheap, but is still better than throwing $20 down the toilet which is effectively what you're doing by purchasing this product.

OK, tantrum over. Unfortunately, it has recently become necessary for me to use a calendar regularly at home and accordingly, trial a number of calendar apps. This has led to the following conclusions: iCal - clunky and unintuitive; Busycal - frankly too expensive for what it does; Office 2011 - very good, but can't use it without installing the bloated Office 2011 (what a shame). As a home user whose wife runs a business from home, Menucalendarclock seems to be ideal. Based on the comments in this forum, the price seems to be a point of contention however as this app makes iCal considerably easier to use and saves you a considerable amount of time in the process when used regularly, I have no complaints there. Yes, iCal should probably have the ability to do exactly what this app does, but it doesn't and consequently I need to buy this. If reliability and support doesn't prove to be a problem (big ask judging by the comments here!) and if there's no problems with stability in the next month, I'll be happy to recommend this.

When it works it's really nice to have and I like it a lot. Unfortunately, it rarely works correctly. I have some events which only show up here, some others are shown on the wrong date. How can I fix or get rid of them when the events are not in iCal? I also get errors on the console which I've reported to the developer many times but I've never received even an acknowledgement. And yes, I've erased and reloaded... no change. Would also suggest extreme caution updating MCC. For me, almost every other update has been bad. When an update is released I now wait a couple of months for the next one which is released to fix the bugs in the last one. Then a few months later a new update is released which adds a "feature" and the cycle starts again. Don't get me wrong -- the UI is good, the idea is good, the usability is good -- in theory. But support is a joke and too many things haven't worked properly, at least for me. Note I have multiple licenses and have been using it on and off for many many years and my complaints aren't based only on recent experiences. I guess if I keep upgrading I still hold some hope. Or I'm not too smart!

I've now waited a week for a response from these cowboys and just called them. Didn't have time to talk to me ("busy"), but they appear to be still in business and admit to having a "slight backlog" on support issues. A week's worth of support issues unanswered? "Yes" I'd steer well clear as someone as shonky as this

A useful app, way overpriced, sloppy update programming, outrageously poor customer service. The upgrade to 4.1.0 was buggy (acknowledged by the developer " 4.1.0 won't ever update automatically due to a glitch in the new autoupdate software we were forced to use") to the extent that a complete reinstall was necessary. I've now been waiting 3 days to find out why 4.1.2 won't run under OS 10.6.4. OK for shareware, unacceptable for a commercial product

Gee, I was only trying to give the developer some wiggle room here. My unusual setup has simply never been an issue for any of the programs or about 20 other menubar items I use, so why would I routinely add all these disclaimers you are demanding? In fact, the only problem I can recall was way back I couldn't run the Flip4Mac installer within a FileVault environment - but that's about it, and that was almost a couple years ago (it's fixed now). It's a testament to OSX that it's so rock solid in such environments. That being said, I do notice previous versions of MCC seem to vanish from my menubar after several days of usage for reasons as yet unknown. Perhaps this version (released after my original post) is better - I'll let you know after about a week. At the end of the day all I'm doing is reporting my experiences and rating accordingly. Like everything else, if I'm in the minority then the ratings statistics will take care of things. No need for the flames...

I could swear an earlier version let you have white or lighter-colored text on a dark background. iStat menus allows this. I think the user should have more control over the colors of the drop-down calendar. For now, I will use iStat Menus based on looks alone!

The idea behind this software is good enough, but through all the versions I've tried I've always found it to be somewhat unstable i.e. I'd look over on the menubar to check out the time or date and quite often it's no longer there i.e. it had crashed.

I. m. h. o. this latest release (v. 4.1.1) is a bad idea. The previous release was 64-bit, this one reverts to 32-bit because of difficulties of running it with Leopard. That penalizes those of us who do run Snow Leopard on 64-bit capable Macs. Wouldn't it be fairer for the developer to release two separate versions for these two clienteles?

while an icon might suffice for some, this app, which has integrated beautifully with iCal for many years, is a godsend for those of us who need a stable quick access to any of our calendars on iCal, be they Google-synched or MobileMe-synched, Menu Cal performs a fantastic job. Hardly obtrusive and most-always very stable, I'm more than willing to be a bit forgiving when an upgrade goes slightly bad and one has to revert to a previous version for a short while. I've used this app for several years and have never regretted purchasing it.

A stupid date icon isn't worth this much hassle. Maybe others use it for more, but with the changes you've made, I've just switched to iStatPro's icon. Bummer, dude. You really should just sell a $1 prog that does several different date icons for the status bar. You would probably outsell your other buggy product.

With our first 64bit version of MenuCalendarClock, we tripped on a bug in Apple's 64-bit Cocoa on 10.5.x. This problem does not occur on 10.6. It does not occur on Machines with "Core 1" processors. It also depends on the recurring events you have in iCal. WORKAROUND: In order to work around this problem, please quit MenuCalendarClock from the "gears" popup menu. Then find the MenuCalendarClock application in the Finder (usually in the Applications folder), hit Cmd-I (or "Get Info"). Find and check the "Open in 32-bit mode" checkbox. Run MenuCalendarClock. This will not harm MCC's operation or performance. We will issue an update ASAP to work around this bug automatically. Sorry for the hassle, Dirk Theisen for Objectpark Software

Just installed 4.1 (after quitting then renaming my previous version just in case) and am glad to report no hang-up. So far working flawlessly on iMac 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo running Mac OS X 10.6.1 Snow Leopard. Previous comments indicating lock-ups were trying, perhaps, to run a 64-bit 4.1 on a Mac still running Leopard. I recommend not upgrading until you've taken the Snow Leopard plunge.

I was able to highlight the cell but it did not see my keyboard strokes. I emailed the company. Nothing. I emailed again. Still no response. I have entered a complaint and requested a refund through PayPal but they do not respond to that either. I would not make any purchase from this company.

The pop down calendar on the clock should have been built into the OS. This is great for quickly viewing iCal and getting a glance of your day. The customization options are great (which calendars to include, how many days, etc). Tool tip hover overs mean I can see what is happening on any day. I only go to iCal to edit my calendar now. The search option is not on by default, but it is there. Well worth the money.

I was happy when they first offered to do item support but it is very basic and rudimentary. The rest of the application is very well thought out and smooth. What's with the to do stuff? This is supposed to be one of the features for registered users. There is widgets that work better at this. I would be ashamed to throw out a quick hack for to do items like the developers did, without improving on them. It is a joke and obvious poor workmanship.

Solve the horrific aliasing problem in Leopard (if possible - if you use the transparent menubar, the anti-aliased text is just not anti-aliased and is ugly as hell) and provide me with the ability to add events as well as to dos and this would be a 5 star app.

My last post made the same mistake that the original poster made. Basically, the tags either get stripped or are unescaped, so hopefully this works ... The new entries are wrapped in "key" and "string" elements, respectively. To clarify, *these* two lines should be added before both the closing and closing tags: <key>SUFeedURL</key> <string>http://www.objectpark.net/appcasts/MCC3.xml</string> For example, the last six lines of my Info.plist file look like this (in case wrapping screws this up, each line begins with a tag): <key>SUFeedURL</key> <string>http://www.objectpark.net/appcasts/MCC3.xml</string> <key>LSUIElement</key> <string>1</string> </dict> </plist>

There is a workaround to removing the Dock icon: 1. Open your Applications folder and right-click the MenuCalendarClock iCal.app icon. From the context menu, choose "Show Package Contents". 2. Navigate to Contents > Info.plist 3. Open Info.plist in a text editor. Warning: do not open it in Microsoft Word or any other document writing program. It will corrupt the file. 4. Add these two lines before the final tag: LSUIElement 1 5. Save Info.plist and close it. Restart MenuCalendarClock iCal.app and voíla! The Dock icon is gone.
