As simple time/day/date functionality, Itsycal is far superior to Apple's solution, but I'd love its menu bar presentation to be more configurable, so only four stars. In a different vein, Itsycal is NOT free! It's donationware, but I've been put off from donating, because Mowglii is the only developer I've ever run across who doesn't understand that credit card fees are a cost of doing business, and, particularly, that charging me a fee for the privilege of making a voluntary donation is just plan greedy.

I've been using Itsycal for a few years now and have to admit that I'm very happy with this little gem: it's small and efficient and serves my limited scope of needs very well. I've never attempted anything like syncing with other devices nor some fancy use so I can't say if then I'd be equally satisfied, but as far as my desktop is concerned it's nearly perfect (customisation thrown in would be very helpful)

Love the program... Been using it for years. But with Mojave 10.14.3, it won't stay running for more than a few hours at a time.

Great program calendar! Used it since its inception, never disappointed. The developer always keeps it updated and bug-free. Highly configurable to suit anyone's taste. I've tried all the mini-calendars out there, none beats and most don't equal this prize app! Many thanks to the developer for the great price!?

Wonderful little app that does exactly what I need without the need of a separate app password that the way overpriced Fantastical is constantly having issues with. I've been a user of Fantastical since it first was released and it served me well, but has become a real pain to deal with over the years and the price to upgrade to the newer version is absurd. I love this app and wish there was an iOS version too. I highly recommend this to everyone looking for an easy to use and unobtrusive menu based calendar!

Very good, adjustible little tool to show week number, Day, month , year and time in the Menü-bar of the Mac. 12 hour with am and pm or 24 hour, the European stile possible.l I find it better than apples solution!

Great app, lomg time user. Would love to see two more features though: 1. Three months' view 2. Integrated reminders That would make the app perfect imho.

The application is simple in use and pretty nice. I recommend to try it, if you want to have a quick view of events that are planned for this date.

If you have a Mac that it's 'stuck' with EL Capitan (OS X 10.11.16), there is a version for it still:

I really do not see the point of this application since it provides what the OS system provides so why waste system resources. However, free is free and I do complement the developer for his efforts. I am still rating this application a top 5.

In the end, Itsycal is the best utility of its type that's available, but I'd give it 5 stars only if its layout were more configurable.

In a different vein, though, Itsycal's two donation options are Square Cash, which works off your debit card, and PayPal, which requires your paying a fee if you use a credit card, both of which are, therefore, free to the developer.

Huh?

Mowglii's benevolent beginning comes to an unique (in my experience) and mercenary end which is hardly in the spirit of donationware.

Simply the handiest, best-looking menu bar calendar available. Add some font customization and I'll give it five stars.

Good to see something like this in active development... three stars for potential. Please take a look at Magical 1.14r to see what Itsycal could be. Sadly, Magical hasn't seen an update since 2010. I'm sticking with Magical in OS Sierra despite some cobwebs... it is sublime.

Wow. Fast, light, great menu bar display, and works great. What more could you ask for? Well, it's also free. Mind blowing. What a great dev. to release this program to us for free. I can do 90% of my calendar work from the menu bar, or double click a date to open Calendar for the other 10%. I'm loving this.

I gave up using Fantastical 1 for this app. Why? It is light, fast, and opens my full calendar when I need to. I also like the menubar display better. This is a great app and my thanks to the developer for making this. It's great.

Great tiny app but need to add "Reminders" support, colored icon (or just another icon version for highlighting in menubar).

Like most have said here, it's a great app that provides the bare essence of Calendar features that many such as myself want. Nothing against Fantastical, but I don't require 90% of their features...I just want to see quickly a visual month calendar and possibly any events I have currently. That is exactly what ItsyCal provides. It has a simple, crisp UI that has never given me performance issues. You can even add & delete events from it. If you want a simple (and even FREE) menu calendar, there is no better than Itsycal, IMHO.

If itsycal could show Reminders then it would be a decent replacement for now abandoned MenuCalendarClock.

An excellent alternative to Fantastical. For my needs it does everything that I want in a menubar calendar without any unnecessary bells and whistles. And it's free! Also, the dev is very responsive – I wrote to him about the format that dates were displayed in, and he responded within a few hours, and within two days had released a new version that fixed the issue.

This great little app does exactly what it claims to, extends Apple's Calendar by providing a quick reference calendar and up to 7 days worth of events in your menu bar. The perfect successor to Fantastical 1, if you aren't looking for the full calendar replacement that Fantastical 2 provides.

Wouldn't it be great if this "complete re-write of the app" worked with Mavericks and wasn't a "Yosemite only" app? I do like this and have the previous version installed.

Nice little menubar calendar. Also showing todos and events! Two questions to the developer: 1. What does pinning to the calendar? 2. I'd love to see a square icon instead of rectangular. Maybe you could build in several options?

Cool little Menubar Calendar, but not exactly Mavericks compatible. I'll go to click on the Itsycal menubar icon and many times it will do nothing until the actual application is double-clicked, then it will work fine for a while.

Minimal and compact calendar with events displaying support. Just what I need - without any extra stuff, which would make it bloated. Nice.
