Bought this a couple of days ago and immediately decided it was a "must-have". The documentation is somewhat lacking, but the two queries I had about aspects of the app were both answered promptly by the developers with clear instructions and advice. Would recommend the app - at least try it and see if you like it. I have been looking for a simple to do/reminder/tasks list for a LONG time, tried most of them, but this app is elegant and did it for me.

i can't download the app for my new computer. I'd be willing to give you the code for a copy of the software.

I have been using this app since 2009, and it's been a very useful tool on my desktop. While looking into a Calendar issue (El Capitan), I discovered that iDeskCal is no longer available on the App Store and the URL hashbangind.com redirects to Google. Hoping that the app hasn't gone away forever…

most worrying as i too liked this app but find it is no longer working as expected in el Capitan, tell the truth I have been using the ical widget, and come back to the idea of dashboard widgets being of some use.

When I start the day, my upcoming events float atop my desktop in the lower RH corner of my screen., just the text, transparent background. The flexible display options can't be beat. I use Fantastical to enter & editing events, but for looking at them, iDeskCAl provides minimalist perfection!

Needs to be updated for Mavericks.. I get constant console errors pointing to this app about saying "client has neither application-identifier nor keychain-access-groups entitlements". Im sure a recompile is needed to satisfy new codesigning andd permission requirements. Update please!

I noticed there haven't been any comments on this in a while. I'm running the latest version of Mountain Lion and have the latest version of this installed (2.6.1) (non-Mac App Store version). I love this program. Whatever issues it had before with CPU usage are not there now. It's stable as far as I can tell (never had any crashing issues). I don't have to open my calendar to find out what events are upcoming. It embeds right onto my desktop. 'Nuff said.

I hate iCal. Calendars of any sort annoy me. I like chaos. My clients, on the other hand, insist on sending me those annoying meeting request things that end up filed away in iCal and I end up missing them because I cannot bring myself to launch iCal all the time just to check something silly, like an important meeting or a pay day. I only one could have the iCal events blend into the desktop towards the unused edges and leave me alone. Oh, wait, you can. After arriving late for my nth meeting last week, I realised I needed this kind of function more than I would care to admit. I downloaded each of the available solutions and tried them all out. Most lasted no more than 30 minutes on my machine. This lasted and I was not about to wait for the 14 day trial to expire - bought instantly. It does what it is supposed to do, nothing more, nothing less. I have no idea how I lived without it. Oh wait, I do - I missed meetings and birthdays and my anniversary. Sorry dear...

Update to version 2.4 not working, either done internally within iDeskCal or from MacUpdate download link (!?!). Otherwise updating the latest comments posted here: CPU issue has been fixed since 2.3. My only feedback: it would be better not to have any icon on the Dock or Menu, accessing the Preferences by double-clicking the app itself (in the Application folder).

I had the same problem. I downloaded the update and ideskcal made my computer slow to a very serious crawl. It took me over two hours to get it off my computer. I love this software so I do hope they manage to fix the problem, but DO NOT load it at this point.
