To the developer:

Could you try to upload decent-sized images instead of the thumbnail that accompanies the description. You can hardly see what's going on with what was provided in MU.

BdCalendar has a lot going for it.

Access to addresses, calendar, notes, todos, etc. directly from the Menu Bar. It's actually quite powerful with an overly complex, cluttered and confusing interface, plus some downright ugly icons and buttons. There are some odd window and menu behaviors as well and a lack of consistency. Fonts cannot be changed. (a MAJOR negative)

The interface reminds me of DateBk on the Palm and iClock on Mac OS X. Apps that tried to do too much for their own good (I used both for years).

BdCalendar has A LOT of features and power, but it's hampered by a convoluted interface If the developer would seriously sit down, streamline and clean things up, he'd have one helluva utility. For now, it's worth looking at and some may like it. The price is good.

I keep wanting to use this app, but cannot get over the confusing--and not very pretty--interface.

For those who like all the bells and whistles and don't mind the ugliness, the price is pretty good. But I'll take a pass.

It takes real talent to make an app in OS X look this ugly.
Lovely teal, hot pink and bright purple text, grainy snapshots placed behind the calendars, little buttons and check boxes all crammed in together. What nostalgia! Like an OS9 app from the good old days.

(Please take these comments with a grain of salt. I don't mean them as a review of the functionality of BDCalendar, it's just been a while since I've seen an app this hideous.)

I've used AquilaCalendar for 2 or 3 years which was a great app. BdCalendar is even better. I've tried different Calendars over the years and this is the best.

My only concern are all these false reviews on this page. Just check the 5-star reviews: All people registered & logged in only once, the day they wrote their 5-star review. Quite odd, right???

This is a great bit of calendaring software. I use it as a replacement for the standard Apple menubar calendar.

The developer is VERY hands-on, and actually debugged an issue I was having by logging into my computer via iChat screen sharing. Talk about service! Fixed it right on my computer...

I recommend this to anyone looking for a calendering app. It has a lot more power than I actually use, but even for a non-power user like me, it's worth the inexpensive price....

I have used of this developer's other calendar utilities AquilaCalendar, then AquilaCalendarMB and then AquilaCalendar when he discontinued AquilaCalendarMB.

BdCalendar is at version 1.03 at their web site.

BdCalendar has access to your Apple's Address Book and iCal as well provide calendar views in 1, 3, 6 or 12 month formats.

As NorbyWells says The developer's support and response is exceptional. He responded to a question I had about BdCalendar within minutes of me sending an e-mail. He responded to me in a matter of minutes also answering my question.

I very highly recommend BdCalendar to any Leopard user

Have to repeat this (since the 5-star reviews are fake as well...)
