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.

FYI, there is also the recent and free Itsycal that although relatively slow, mimicks MCC quite efficiently...

I agree at 100%. What makes Mene Calendar Clock special it's this combination between calendar and customisable clock that no other app have. But it's messy behavior in Mavericks make it unusefull now. I just quit the app and rehab the not so customisable clock of the system (I miss the color and font choice that can help to make it really visible).

To throw the Fantastical icon to the right of the menu bar, simply click and hold command key, click and hold the icon with the mouse or trackpad, and swipe to the right. It just did it like that to have the icon of Fanstasical to the very right and the system clock on its left.

I wrote a small applescript to get MenuCalendarClock working for me on Mavericks. It toggles the open/close status like clicking on the menu item. If you allocate a shortcut to the script (via FastScripts, Keyboard Maestro etc.), it's a real working alternative.

The script is here:

You can do this with a little tool, delivered from the developer (no idea why it's not available by default). Here is the download: https://flexibits.com/fantastical/FantasticalMenu_1.3.2.zip

You can found it in the FAQ under "How can I move Fantastical's menu icon in my menu bar?".

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)."

A bit too expensive IMO. There are tons of free alternatives doing the same.

The new app 'Day-O' is a very good and free alternative. Check it out.

Just go to Preferences->Display->Advanced and disable the dock icon. Restart MCC. There is no easier way - Apple does not allow background Apps to have menus which some users find helpful.

Thanks for letting us know. It appears the dev has removed the new version from their site and so I've reverted the listing to version 4.1.2. I've reached out to the dev to clarify as to why the new version was removed.

Version 4.5 renders the calendar a day off. So in the menubar it says today is Tuesday Apr 10, but in the calendar view it shows the 10th on Wednesday. Not good. Hopefully, this is why they pulled it and they are correcting.

This outfit have taken my money, supplied a serial, only for me to be told that "Registration Failed!". An email to support has also been returned by the recipient domain. I appear to have thrown my money down the toilet. In the name of fairness, I shall update Macupdate immediately if this matter is resolved. Until then...

DO *NOT* BUY THIS PRODUCT.

Fixed - I managed to get this working by using File Buddy to identify and delete all traces of the application from my HD, then downloaded and installed a fresh version of the app, entered exactly the same registration details and voila, it registered. Had to work all this out myself though as the dev still didn't get back to me. So, to update my previous advice, its only fair to say that, provided you manage to get it working then yes,
*BUY THIS APPLICATION*.

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.

To clarify, *these* two lines should be added before both the closing and closing tags:

LSUIElement
1

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):

SUFeedURL
http://www.objectpark.net/appcasts/MCC3.xml
LSUIElement

Hopefully, this works:

<key>LSUIElement</key>
<string>1</string>

If not, this is what the last few lines of the Info.plist file needs to read (remove the spaces after the first angle bracket):

Be careful ! Developper cannot CARE LESS about his clients. No replies to emails. New PAY version can be totally unuseful for some legacy users and no way to get a REFUND. Sorry, ObjectPark, you are not a serious company. Your software use to be 5stars... NOT ANYMORE.

When I upgraded to Leopard, of course the version of MCC I was using was no longer supported. I've been trying to download the latest version, but it always tells me MCC is in use (I get the same message when I try to delete it from my Applications folder). How in the world do I "quit" my old version of MCC, especially since it no longer appears in my menu bar? I've even tried different killall commands on Terminal. Thanks...

Trouble in paradise !

Since the 10.5.1 update a change to iCal's entries results in events disappearing for the day in MCC until it is relaunched..

Hope you get a fix for this soon as it's annoying...

Keep up the good work ! ;)
