Because there are hardly any native non iCloud Calendar clients out there (by which I mean full apps, not menu drop down thingies) and with the demise of Busycal (2), in terms of non iCloud compatability, this is currently a very important app in terms of what it can do. So I’ll give it a pass, despite its failings, the biggest of which is the lack of proper intergration of the Reminders app into the Calendar which to me is just silly.

Obviously, the first thing you do is get rid of the leather appearance, which is easily done (personally, I use Cocktail to achieve that).

This is the single worst application I have ever used (made by Apple) and I've been using a Mac since 1994. It's ugly, it lacks basic features such as repeating tasks, has extremely poor snooze options and the alarm isn't nearly as reliable as, say, Outlook which is rock solid AND entering data is tedious due to the poorly designed UI.

Yet, the worst aspect of this program is that it has completely killed the market for 3rd party developers to come up with a better solution. Apps such as Daylite and BusyCal are iffy, at best and are limited by many of the same design flaws in iCal simply to remain compatible.

Apple should either ramp up this application or pull out and let someone with better skills take over.

Why doesn't Apple add the ability to schedule repeating events on weekdays only or weekends only, and for that matter, the custom setting should allow you to pick the exact days! Come on Apple, this is BASIC! :(

Ok, you actually can, when selecting weekly instead of daily. My bad. :)

First, obviously iCal (as stated above) has not been discontinued. Mac OS10.7 includes iCal version 5.0.

My biggest problem with this product is that they have apparently taken away my ability to keep my various calendar headings on the screen. Now when you do anything, this menu disappears. What an absurd change. Now I must go and show the menu again, over and over.

I have other minor issues, but this change was a big mistake.

well, if it's not discontinued, it should as hell be.

the new calendar popup is actually one of the minor issues if you consider that reminder alarms are completely unreliable (tried all the troubleshooting tips on the web about cleaning caches and so on); checked/unchecked calendars' state don't get saved if you quit/relaunch ical immediately (you have to refresh all calendars before quit); trying to export a calendar and you're playing beach ball.

compared to real usability issues, even the new barbie doll leather look doesn't bother me. v5.0.2 tested.

No, it should not be discontinued, it should be fixed.

Apple is sitting on billions of dollars and they still take forever to fix problems. Their loyal fan base tells them exactly what to do in forums like this one (and of course their own) and they just ignore much of the free advice. So competitors troll these posting and get free product ideas. At least that part of the system works.

Apple's revenue is now mainly from iPhones and iPads and iPods/music. The Mac Pro may even be discontinued. This is not what we want to hear when we pay double for products built with quasi-slave labor, but that's where we are today. It sucks.

i agree with your views on the subject. others are getting ahead and i don't believe the guys at apple don't fix something because they don't know how to. they clearly lost interest in desktops.
just saying that it comes a time when you just grow tired of waiting for some decent fixing which, by the murphy's law, will break something else.

my first 3/4 years (leo and snow leo) with the mac was a time for discovery and trying new and exciting third party apps. now, with lion i decided to decrease my set of apps to the minimum and use the apple stock apps whenever possible. it's much of an hassle to try to get safari or ichat to give you an approximate workflow you're used with opera or adium (including setting growl scripts, setting jabber gateways, finding alternative safari extensions, etc.).

it was painful but doable. ical, however, doesn't work on me and no tweak can save it. thanks for the educated reply, cheers dthdunn.

I now use BusyCal, but whether that will resolve your particular issues, I cannot say. Good luck.

iCal is a familiar part of OS 10.6, and actually quite useful - once you become familiar with its design. Many of the controls to this software aren't as user-friendly as other Apple applications, forcing you to play around with various options - some more obvious than others.

iCal needs to be rewritten with special attention to intuitive ease of use.

I haven't seen a complaint about the Search function. Maybe it's peculiar to my setup. The Search function does absolutely nothing, even when the item searched for is on the page in view. BUG.

To osos10 - you either need to replace your PRAM battery (desktop) or reset your PMU (laptop).

iCal has a lot of potential, especially when used with Meton which places iCal events in the menubar for easy access.

Whenever, for some reason there is a sudden failure (due to electricity power failure etc.), the Mac forgets the time and the date - this is very odd, but one can live with that. But after you set up the time, iCAL the ROYALLY STUPID application repeats each and every event and alarm since the day it was set. Thus, lunching every application, sending hundreds of e-mails, making hundreds of phone calls not to mention the popup window (luckily the SMS doesn't work with my SMS provider, I pity those with a working SMS setting who will get hundreds of old SMSs all over again). I can only say ROYALLY STUPID, ROYALLY STUPID, ROYALLY STUPID ..... APPLE WAKE UP.

Don't know what's going on with my iCal but events keep slipping from one day to the next. It's done this twice. The first time I thought it was me, moved everything over and it's done it again! And when you drag the events back over, you lose the time and have to re-arrange the things all over. This is starting to be a great waste of time. Will check out alternatives.

Have discovered the nature of this bug. It involves crossing the international date line and jumping time zones. These slips occured when I flew back and forth from Asia crossing the date line. Will have to be careful about this in future. Don' t know if there's a fix for this or why it does this in the first place as it's annoying for anyone who travels . . . .
