I have been looking for an app that would do just what EventMaker does... grab data from Mail and create an iCal event.

My workflow is simple and I get my iCal work schedule almost entirely from my email. I use QuickSilver and I have tried MailTags and MailActOn as well as others. Most of them are excellent, but so much more than I need. I prefer iCal "Events" over "To Do" lists for my workflow and EventMaker suits me perfectly.

I suggest this script for anybody needing a simple and accurate bridge between Mail and iCal.

Event Maker is awesome. I looked for days for a full featured way to make iCal To Dos from Mail. This is it. Simple, fact and efficient. Good work.

Suggest the developer looks at anagram on Windows at: http://getanagram.com/

This is what I was kind of expecting that tries to deduce what the user wants created e.g. contact or appointment from the text itself.

Although anagram is a great concept it falls down by being very North American as it doesn't have much intelligence (and can't be taught!) re international phone formats / European addresses and doesn't understand a word of German that is about 50% of my Inbox...

Anyway, hope pointing you to anagram will be at very least food for thought...

Thanks for the suggestions. I had never actually heard of this Anagram thing before!

I don't intend to fully go down that route. I have absolutely no intention of expanding Event Maker to dealing with Contact information at any point.

However, on the calendar events front - just wait and see!

Suggest you look at ContactCreator. ; )

It's a system service, so operates on almost all text you can select (all Cocoa, and some Carbon apps.)

It's not quite as sophisticated as Anagram (nor the good ol' Apple Data Detectors from way back), but it gives some of what you want.

CalendarCreator will do the same for events (select some text and create a new iCal event.)

AddressService goes in the other direction to ContactCreator; select a name and it'll search your Address Book and insert their name and address or phone no.

Nothing against Event Maker! Trying it now. : )

Calendar Creator is not something I had come across before, but it is part of my eventual aim.

However, as far as I can see, Calendar Creator works by simply adding the event to iCal and then letting you edit it there. I intend to do the editing of the event details within the Event Maker program itself.

I have been looking for something like this app. I was wondering if there is any way for you to make this an icon to be selected with Mail? It would make it much more convenient.

Loved this under Tiger. Doesn't seem to show iCal calendars in Leopard.

Any chance of an update?
