By far the best, most sophisticated and comprehensive and now with version 2021.3.0: beautifully designed calendar manager on the Mac. Worth every penny. At least for me. Period.

Firstly! The price is expensive. There would be something to pay for. There are a lot of bugs, but they are never fixed. Only minor bugs are fixed. There are many problems with usability too. It seems that the developer deliberately creates errors and does not fix them, in order for us to use the program it would be inconvenient and we would have to wait for new updates in the hope that these bugs will be finally fixed. As if the developer is playing a tricky game with his users. Secondary! Using the program is inconvenient due to the presence of mocking bugs and shortcomings. So, by the way, most applications on the Apple platform. Some settings are impossible to change, and the default developer settings are terrible. As luck would have it! Thirdly! The default settings are not ideal. It takes a lot of time to work on the calendar settings. For the record, this is a drawback of all applications for Apple. In Windows 7, for example, just click next, next, next in the dialog box, and You be sure that everything will work perfectly. Because Windows applications are fine-tuned, and Apple applications are raw and of poor quality, like an eaten spoiled apple. Fourthly! The Support does not work at all. I have repeatedly written to the support about my ideas for optimizing the calendar, but not a single piece of advice was taken into account. The developer doesn't care about the consumer.

I have limited use for extra functionalities but I like the looks better than the built-in Calendar.app. However the subscription model that forces payment for bug fixes is not acceptable, thus the low rating.

many long years later of being a busycal and busycontact person, the subscription model it is too much for what little I need in updates or capability. Heck unfortunately for what little I need now in my job, Outlook or gmail works just as fine. CYA

In MOST ways BusyCal is awesome, the best calendar I could find (at the time I compared them all). But it has one INFURIATING flaw: it constantly harasses you to update it, and there's no way to turn it off. It's working fine, and I don't need to upgrade it now. I'd rather wait a year or so until there's some really compelling improvement. Even though I've set the update check period to a month (there's no way to turn it off) it nags me far more often. This is REALLY HORRIBLE UX, and an unforgivable strategy to persuade users to upgrade.

I really like the app. Just be careful with the purchase, after about 2 years they started nagging me I no longer will receive updates unless I pay again but a reduced price. I can keep using my exisiting version. This nagging lasted about 2 weeks.

BusyCal is one of those apps I considered for a couple of years before finally trying. There aren't a lot of Mac calendar-only apps out there. I ended up really, really liking it, and it's my main Mac calendar. Extremely powerful, syncs up my Apple Calendar and Google Calendars. Regularly updated too. If Apple Calendar is too basic for you and you don't want to pay $60/yr for Fantastical this app is what you want. It's about 90% as functional and pretty as Fantastical, but much, much cheaper with one-time purchase.
