Very good calendar. Use it for years! Very good support, regular updates. And no subscription (and as the developer said, also not in the future)!!!

A solid app, with a very responsive developer. It can sync with MacOS and iOS calendars and reminders, and I've gotten a lot of use out of it for seven+ years.

BusyCal is a solid calendar application with some additional, well-thought-out and useful features. The first of these is the ability to keep the info panel open all the time, so details are always in view. The second is that you can attach different kinds of data to a day in the calendar. Some of these are the usuals (events, tasks, reminders), but some are unusual, like longer journal entries, sticky notes, descriptive banners and timed todos. With a free trial, BusyCal is worth a look... although Apple does make it a little annoying to connect BusyCal to iCloud.

Price / quality mismatch. Poorly thought out, despite the fact that the price rolls over!

Limited functionality. Frequent updates that essentially do not fundamentally change anything. I do not like this application ...

I love BusyCal since years and really couldn't work without it any more. Together with BusyContacts it's a true killer combo in my daily work with the Mac – and especially working with many external teams. Worth every penny…

Since the return of reminders last week my preferred calendar app across iOS devices and Mac. Clear and structured days / weeks / months views. Sometimes the natural voice feature delivers funny results but that is no better or worse than Siri's retarded artificial brain. I particularly like the option to consolidate my personal and business calendars in one app. If you developers are working on design progress: I often work with card based user interfaces where you can organize your tasks and meetings kanban style (or like sticky notes) - that would be a cool alternative for a day-view. Keep going!

The calendar is not completed, it is impossible to use it, because it is gray and blind to the eyes, so I give a true rating of three stars. I will explain: When I look at the week section, I can never understand at what point in time the event is. In the event at the beginning of the line, the time is simply not indicated. And also, in the left edge of the window in the time column, the numbers are so small and gray that with my eyesight (I have a slight cataract) I can not see anything at all. In the application settings, too, you cannot change the font, for example, make it larger and completely black. In the application settings, some important fonts cannot be changed! But original fonts small and gray. Very Badly! So this application is not useful because the font in the program is very gray and very small. I do not recommend you this program. The program costs 50 € and for the money it should be convenient, but it is not. Thank you for reading to the end. PS: I will also notice that all applications for Apple have the same problems with eyes, so people Refuse Apple.

Have been using this for a very long time, and its incarnation before with Now Software. Users will have different preferences but for me this is solid and merges my Apple (personal) and Microsoft (work) calendars effectively. A good company.
