So, I downloaded and installed Pando Calendar. It put up a small calendar showing the current month in the lower-left part of my screen without any indication of the current day or future events. Not terribly helpful for me as I am looking for something that will show upcoming events on the desktop so I don't miss them, because I will forget to check Calendar every day. Pando does not help me out in this regard.

Well Nikki888 I disagree and find this app to be inspiring. I think you protest too much and because of that you may have some guilt which can be alleviated through faith.Although I respect your opinion and your feelings there is nothing wrong with faith. Sometimes it is the only thing we can hold onto in these difficult times. Anyway I gie this app 5 stars.

@nikki888 was simply commenting on the app's behaviour. @Jazzyguy MacUpdate is not the place to discuss the validity of religious beliefs, nor politics either. Please save that for more appropriate venues.

I must state also that there is a Religious Motif running through this app and those that don't like it can refrain from downloading and installing it. They DON"T have to install it . Those users that don't like it really don't have to download it. It is a Calendar but with the Chriistian Religion in the forefront and it is somewhat religious.

And in addition I am a Christian and I like it!!! This really is a Christian application although it is a Calendar but it has quotes from the Holy Bible and if someone wants inspiring thoughts he or she can come to this app.If someone doesn't like it they can NOT install it! This is a GREAT APP!!!!

That's what I do like about the Catholics, they don't shove it in your face like the rest of the Christians do.

Sigh.

I love this little app too and it's been a fixture on my desktop for many years. Thanks to the developer!

Anyone noticed anything new and different in this version? Seems identical to me...

Very, very high quality Application for Mac. (It's also available for Mac OS 9 and Panther on pandacorner.com)

I have searched the web back and forth trying to find Applications for Macintosh with a Christian theme and PandoCalendar fits perfectly for
what I've been looking for! =) I love this calendar with it's Classic styled balloon notes like Mac OS 9's help balloons! It's so cool and such a blessing in my daily life especially with the C.H. Spurgeon's: Faith's Checkbook built into the App! Wow! That totally blew me away with blessings! Thank you Panda Systems, for such a blessing and an Application I finally really, really like! Did I mention it's FREE?

I cannot recommend this calendar enough. Compared to iCal, which is a secretary's calendar on steroids, this is a cool glass of water!
Awesome!!!!

As mentioned in other comments, every midnight from Saturday to Sunday the app pops up a biblical quote. As it turns out, in the pop-up window to the left of the quote there's the app's icon: a panda bear clutching a calendar. I find it hard to suppress a giggle when, every week at midnight, the panda bear miraculously makes its appearance and starts prophesying: "And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying All hail. And they came and held Him by the feet, and worshipped Him" (Matthew 28:9), and stuff like that. Oh, holy Panda Bear, lead me into the light of the Lord's grace!

Well, you're welcome, but the one you should actually thank (and probably worship) is the sacred Panda, of course...

I think your remark was stupid and shows little respect for an application that is Christian in Nature, The developer is a person who is religious and donates his time and effort to make a Calendar.And you and LON make fun of him. That is unlike MacUpdate and not true to the spirit of this repository of applications. LON i am surprised that you would find mirth in this type of sarcastic drivel.

A great app - i started with Pando in OS 9 and think the current slew of features are excellent. Would not have moved to Leopard if Pando had not been compatible.

For those who don't use iCal (and I am One) and who don't want all the sync options, Pando Calendar offers a simple calender & to do application that is practical and elegant with a religious text to give inspiration to those who are so inclined.

For me, it's just not that functional. It would be nice if it would sync to/from ical calendars, because iCal simply offers a lot that you can't get from pando (eg. iPod syncing). It would be nice if Pando could act as sort of a middle man for me, so I don't have to open up clunky iCal if I don't want to.
I also think it would be nice if you could select the window to always be on top of the desktop, but not on top of other windows. I'd like it to kind of look like a part of my wallpaper. When it's on top of all windows, it's annoying.
I downloaded it, saw it's potential, and deleted it mainly because of the lack of ical integration.

Granted, there's no screenshot, but it's a good program and worth a look. The only thing you should be ready for, however, is that every Sunday at midnight, it will pop up a Biblical quote. I think that should be advertised more clearly in these postings. I don't have a problem with it. I'm not a Christian, and I simply close the pop-up window when it appears. For me, it's only an issue if one wants it to be. I find it a small tradeoff for an overall effective program.

I found this too - Very annoying having someone else's religious beliefs rammed down my throat. It's a calendar program - If I'd have wanted someone to preach to me then I'd have called a priest so the inclusion of it is inappropriate. What next? Photoshop with a call to prayer at 5am every day? Excel reminding me not to work on the Sabbath? There's no place for it and there needs to be an option which turns this off.

Apart from that it is a goo app - iCal integration would seem a natural inclusion so I have no idea why it's not in there but as a handy little app to have around (despite the dodgy icon) it's very good.
