Displays iCal events right on the desktop.

What is Eon for Mac

Eon displays users' iCal events right on their desktop where it is most convenient. Eon empowers users with enough customization options to satisfy power users while being simple enough to satisfy average Mac users. The Month's calendar skin editor allows users to customize the appearance of a calendar to be tailored to individual styles. GossTech also provides a Skin Repository where users can download and upload skins.

Eon still works fine here under 10.7.2. Low ratings are totally undeserved. Would hope that development isn't abandoned. Eon displays an iCal integrated calendar (day view, month view, any combination, which ever you prefer) right on your desktop. This might be impractical for people with lots of items on the desktop, but that is generally a bad idea anyhow. It is very nice to have a clean overview of all scheduled events for the day, the week, the month in one glance right after boot. Ideal for me.

Still some minor bugs, but overall Eon is stable and for me quite useful. The developer has been very responsive to fixing reported bugs and accepting suggestions for enhancements, so expect Eon to continue to improve. It's completely usable in it's current version, though. While Eon won't fit everyone's workflow, it's very handy if what you want/need is to see your schedule and to-do list at a glance, without having to open an application, pull down a menu, or go to Dashboard. It's by no means the only schedule viewer available and depending on your needs and preferences another solution might suit you better, but if schedule-at-a-glance is of interest to you, this application is well worth checking out.

I don't get it. Perhaps I have not figured this program out, but all it does is place a calendar on my desktop that cannot go forward or backward nor displays any iCal information. I did try the "activate" button but all it seemingly does is allow you to add another or delete the calendar. The help files are not very helpful. I would not recommend this software.

Yeah, I've gotta agree with the first poster - Seemed like a good idea at the time, but in reality, seems klutzy and a badly implemented. Ugly choice of default skin that looks nothing like the screenshot implies - and the skin 'store' didn't boost my hopes either - with only one other choice from what I could see. As soon as I had trouble pulling up the preferences window (but instead made Firefox active), I knew this needed more refinement. Sorry guys, maybe in a version or three... :)

At first I thought it was kind of cool. But, after a while it became a little annoying as it visually conflicted with all the other folders on the desktop. Cool looking product, though.
