MagiCal overview

MagiCal is a menu-based clock and calendar. It features a huge range of configuration options for how the time and date are displayed, and can operate either in addition to, or instead of, the built in system menu clock.

In addition to this, MagiCal features a handy drop-down calendar that can be torn off and placed anywhere on screen.

Long time MagiCal user, but it doesn't appear to be actively updated anymore, and no longer working with my lastest MacOS. I found a very similar tool called ItsyCal which is also free, so I'm going to try that instead.

I loved it, but it is 32-bit and Apple is phasing out all 32-bit apps soon.

Well I'll be darned! I just d/l'ed the Intel version of MagiCal from the dev's website, and I can pin it to the right end of my menu bar where I like it, and the calendar drops down. It appears to have been resurrected! :) (10.12.3, perhaps.)

I just finished comparing permutations and combinations of Apple's clock, Itsycal, and Day-O, and since I want a drop-down calendar I'm going with Day-0 which takes up the least amount of menu bar space with the most elegant presentation. (Apple/Magical actually uses 1/16th" less space, but less elegantly, and it's a dead issue without the calendar drop-down.)

Still great after all these years, but showing its age under Sierra. Please join forces with Itsycal's author, Mowglii, to keep Magical alive in some form. Thanks for great service through the years! Small apps like these make the Mac experience special.

I like my MagiCal menulet pinned to the right end of my menu bar, but in Sierra, it behaves like all my other 3rd party menulets and shows up in random locations to the left of my Apple menulets.

Is that consistent with everybody else's experience?

Darn! Too bad this app isn't still being developed. :(

Yeah, v1.1r4 from 2010 still works cool in OSX.12.1 Sierra! I just had to drag it manually to my startup items because "Preferences > Miscellaneous > (_) Launch MagiCal at login" won't do it (so I set no checkmark).

It's a minor point, but why don't you have the icon year change to the current year?

Best MenubarCalendar so far. Date/time format is fully customizable. In OSX.8.5 it still works fine most of the time, but crashes about two times in a week (it quits itself; if this happens, just re-open it), so an update would be great after three years...

I have been using this for years with OS X 10.4, 10.5, and 10.6. I love it, but it doesn't work with OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Looking at MenuCalendarClock iCal as a replacement, but MagiCal has been just perfect - it doesn't stretch to do more than I need.

This is perfect!! Just what I wanted. I was using a CPU heavy app with all these extra, unnecessary features just to display the calendar day on my menubar. This simple, lightweight app does that for me and lets me customize the look. Plus I can even customize the classic clock, and I love the tooltip feature. Wish I had found this app a lot sooner!
