I already bought DateLine but the version I have (1.0) is not recognised by the Appstore. I thus cannot update to 1.1 This is one of the reason I hate the Appstore.

Was running DateLine on a MacBook Pro with El Capitan. Just switched to a new machine running Mojave and brought DateLine across via the Migration Assistant. It opened and is running as per usual. So perhaps not dead as reported 18 months ago. Needless to say, I'm delighted. There's no other desktop calendar app that looks and works quite like this one. I don't need a replica of my regular calendar app (BusyCal) on my desktop, I just want that discreet, linear view across the bottom of my screen when I want to consult a visual calendar. (I rarely use the click-to-see-what's-on today function, although that's nice too.)

Dateline used to be one of my favorite little utilities. So easy to just hover over a date to take a quick look at what was on schedule for the day - and next few days. I stuck with Snow Leopard for much longer than I should have due to other software that was incompatible with newer releases. When I finally upgraded to Mavericks, I was really disappointed that the “hover” would no longer work for Dateline. The only way I can get the popup is by using the Shift-Command-M to bring Dateline to the front. I have V1.4 and see that V1.4.1 notes that it "Removed Desktop Icons window level as it is incompatible with changes to the windowing system in Lion.” I’m not sure if that also solves the issue that I’m having? Still, I’m hesitant to pay another $5 for something that hasn’t been updated in three years (and three OS versions - Mountain Lion, Mavericks, or Yosemite).

Nice app but there seems not to be any active development anymore. Developer was developing a version 2 but it seems that this version isn't sure also. No bugfixes (last update 13-08-2011) and the app is still not compatible with Busycal because it doesn't sync without opening iCal first. That's too much of a hassle and not the reason why I switched to busycal. It does give a sync warning when choosing busycal as standard, but it really makes the app worthless for busycal users Since this is a paid app, a bugfix would be appropiate so now and then... Useable for iCal users, though...

... I can't really see the point of Dateline *now* (don't know with which version this behavior begun) launching iCal on start-up :-/ and no setting to disable it!!!

I contacted the developer on the iCal launching issue and he had a fix out the next day (today). I am going to miss the icon desktop level but we'll see how it goes. If you want an elegant desktop calendar visual with some iCal connectivity, this is a great product.

Is that OK with the Dev if I use a [K] to upgrade Dateline, since I already bought it? I have no intention to buy it a second time just for having the privilege to upgrade via the Appstore.

from the post you linked: "DateLine 1.1.0 is simply the Mac App Store version of DateLine 1.0.0. It is identical. I know this is confusing, but it is the only way I can maintain an App Store version and an independent version for now." this is what the developer says, but every other app I own has the same version number on both the App Store and "independent" so... sounds more a strategy meant to push customers towards re-purchasing the app making them "feel behind latest version" he also states he will provide free updates for existing customers up to v 1.0.9. so... unless it's a typo, existing customers are already out! :-0

ok: now, *finally*, all your intentions are standing clear! a) "1.0 indie" is the last version available to existing customers b) any further update will be *App Store only*! if you stated this clearly and since the beginning, as other developers have done, I wouldn't complain at all and just happily migrate DateLine too to the App Store the way you acted, instead, towards your customers (as if they all were stupids!) with all these *transversal* "maneuvers" and writings is really ... ehm... "sad"! :-(

Hi guys, In order to move to the app store version of any app, you must purchase it from the App Store. Apple provides no way for developers to move their existing customers to the App Store.
