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.

I really enjoyed the time with Busycal for years... Changing the license model without any upfront notice... I mean all of us bought a license years a go and now we have a 18 month subscription plan? WHAT A MESS

Use to like BusyContact and BusyCal but didn't realize that they want $30 for EACH of their program every 18 Month which I am not prepared to pay. Looking for alternatives now. Also, I assume they'll go out of business soon which is another reason to start looking for something new but they were good while it lasted :(

This suddenly re-defined license expiration is but greed. I'm done. I bought the Mac and iOS versions of BusyCal as well as the BusyContacts. Back to basic Apple and good riddance.

The company now wants users to pay 29;99 USD for an upgrade from 13.2.1 to 13.2.2. Which is a bug fix. Sad to say, but since Beehive Innovations bought BusyCal and BusyContacts ythey have fallen behind their competition. And charge almost 30 USD for a bugfix. My guess is that this app will be dead within a year, so I don't dare to pay even if I thought it was a fair price, Bye bye BusyCal and BusyContacts.

App works fine but deceptive and hidden "subsubscription" practice for updates is unacceptable. Charges 50% of price for minor version updates without any information on this practice when purchasing. Fantastical is a better and less expensive if you're looking for a subscription-based service. Heck, even Outlook is working acceptably now, if you already have to run MS products.

A worthy successor to Now Up-to-Date. I’ve used this software in one form or another for many years, almost every day. It’s not perfect—it has some rough edges—but it does what it needs to do.

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!
