Blotter overview

Blotter is a streamlined calendar viewer which displays itself right on your desktop. Beautifully discreet and out of the way, yet only a glance away. Did you ever mark something in your calendar only to forget to check the calendar? No more.

Blotter is an easy way to increase your productivity. With your week right before you, it is fast to see if you can make a meeting on Tuesday or if you'll be able to go home early on Friday.

  • Keep your existing calendar. Blotter will tie directly into your OS X iCal calendar instead of recreating it.
  • Get setup in no time and no work.
  • Keep things snappy. Blotter uses very little memory and processing power.
  • Optionally view the next 7 days instead of a regular week.
  • Turn on the Narrow option to save space with only a to do list and upcoming events.Also works with Google Calendar. See our FAQ for more information.

    Note that Blotter does not support calendar editing.

Question: Is Blotter still working now that Apple now requires two-factor authentication for (some) calendar apps?

Just a comment for all those complaining about not having demo versions available in the App Store. There was a time not long ago when one had to buy boxed software, normally for a lot more money than we're paying now, that didn't come with demo versions or money-back guarantees. It's not like this is some new system that someone dreamed up to rob us of our money. Now I'm all for try-before-you-buy but if it's not available I make a decision based on cost, reviews and screenshots.

Do we feel Apple have any clue at all how exasperated so many people are with their AppStore restrictions? Do they care? Part with my money for an untried app? No way. The Android Market (don't mock- I get a great phone with unlimited internet for £10 per month as opposed to £30 for an iPhone)- works so that, if you buy an app and don't like it, you get an automatic refund if it's deleted within a certain time. Couldn't Apple do the same? Anyway, the excellent- and free- PandoCalendar does everything I need.

So. A calendar app that you cannot edit or create events on and that you have to use Exposé to view and which costs $10 and has no demo trial is better than a calendar app that you can edit and create events on and that you can view just by entering a simple key combination and which is free? Hmm. Think I'll pass.
