Streamlined desktop calendar.

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.

I understand people's frustration here about a missing demo version. I kind of bought this software because I've seen it on a friend's laptop and I liked it. I could try it there, so to speak. I also find the price of 9.99 for an app that just displays the current calendar on the desktop a little steep. But then I also think that useful utilities that make life easier and - after all - only cost about 2 cups of coffee at a restaurant... man, you really can't complain. The App Store has brought a lot of prices down significantly and now, after using the tool for some days, I think it was well worth it. Sometimes I have so many appointments that I forget I have to go somewhere. Especially when I'm buried in work in front of my Mac (who thinks of opening the calendar all the time - and all the alarms can be super annoying). Blotter helps me remember my appointments and meetings by just displaying the next 7 days directly on my desktop. It works with synchronized calendars like Google or MobileMe, it works with my BusyCal installation, and it works with a second monitor now. I can now choose to display the calendar on the desktop of the second or third monitor. The latest update also got rid of the dock icon (which was always open - and I don't like utilities sitting there all the time). So in the latest version a nice icon now sits in the menu bar where it belongs in my opinion. The only thing I don't like so much is the positioning feature. One can only choose between top left, top, top right, mid left, mid, right etc. You can choose between three sizes. A very compact view, a "normal" view where I can hardly read anything from the packed calendar on my 27" iMac or a "full screen" which is again too big. Why not let the user draw the position and size of Blotter directly in the preferences instead of giving him only 9 fixed options? And then call the sizes: compact, customized (let the user draw it), and full screen. This would make much more sense and then I would also give it 5 stars :) For me it's either too big full screen as I don't like anything tocover up my whole desktop, but normal is too small. I would like to make it a little bigger.

"Buy before you try !" Is that new App Store Slogan (ASS) ? I dont like that. What if I don't like the program ? Does it come with a money back guarantee ? .
