1.6.145014 April 2019

Yearly calendar application.

Overview

yCal is a calendaring app to help keep the overview on a whole year. It features a unique "months by column" year view in addition to the more conventional week views, provides ample marking and note taking options, and central holiday and birthday management.

yCal has been designed from the ground up to make a better desktop calendar. Its unique year view gives you the perfect overview in a fraction of a second. Days can be marked in different colors and styles to give you more information in one picture (e.g., to show days of vacation, times of travel etc.) just like on a normal paper calendar. The full year can be shown side-by-side with the week view, giving you more fine granular access to individual events.

Everything is optimized for giving you access to powerful features with minimum user interface overhead. For example, just hit space in the year view to quickly look at the details of a selected day. Or just start typing to add a note. Swipe left or right to scroll through years and weeks.

yCal seamlessly integrates with calendars set up in OS X there is no proprietary data store. Use your existing data from local calendars, CalDAV servers, iCloud, or from wherever else without the need for importing or copying. All your changes will be sync'ed to all your servers and devices by Apple's iCal or Calendar app.

Features
  • unique "months by column" view
  • events "heatmap" in year view

Bought it this moment because its translated into the german language too. And because I find it very important to have a good working cal with a yearview. The features are great and the price is ok. A big thanks to the developers...

Looks like a useful app. The year planner on my wall has months as horizontal, not vertical, and it aligns all weekends so you can see things (in my opinion) more clearly. It is a very popular calendar design in Europe and it looks like this: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/81bHnne7kSL._SL1500_.jpg I just wish that this was a yCal option...

You cannot write text which is visible at all the dates in the yearly view... Pretty silly for a yearly calendar!

Downloaded trial but it wouldn't import data from existing calendar - I guess because it's a shared across iCloud. Nice idea - I would appreciate the ability to look at the year in a glance but really needs to update this inability to work with shared calendars

A nice idea but still very buggy. All day appointments very iffy, often color over other appointments - seems to depend on which order you make the appointment. I changed a view setting and found all the years changed to '-1' as a year number, with no appointments. Latest udate makes scrolling between yhears even more difficult (it was hard to start) Very unintuitive and far from ready for prime time.

basically nice idea, but more or less still a beta version: - integration with existing calendars currently only via ical - no option to drag and draw to enter appointments, neither on the yearly nor the weekly calendar view (major drawback!) - appointments can't span over several days - weekly view does only show 5 days (despite it's button label "7"?!) - not very clear what to do with annotations and markings. appointments is what we want. ;) - currently too expensive for what it does. complete it, and it'll be worth the money.

Have to agree ... Although I figured out how to get a 7 day view, performance is spotty. Some clicks work, some don't. Scrolling is uneven/unreliable. Hard to tell if I've done the wrong thing or if I need to wait for the app to catch up. That said, I like the UI feel in general and the use of a tab for all day events is clever. But not much there there for the money.

Hi, great app; configuration worked fine and everything seems to be there (both iCal and google cal). Only (huge) problem is I can't see any information on a selected day or period in the year-view (not hovering, clicking, space bar, nothing); and yes every calendar is selected, but all I can see are the colours...
