Editors' Review


BusyCal for Mac makes it easy for you to organize multiple calendars and provides you with essential features you'll need in the office, like task management and to-do lists. This premium product includes all the features you'd expect from an app of its kind: multiple calendar views, reminders, notifications for events, and even the ability to create events using voice commands. It's a well-built app with a lot to offer.

Once you install BusyCal for Mac, you are presented with an assistant that lets you tweak the basic functionality of the app. You may optionally install a helper application that will monitor your appointments even when BusyCal is not running. Event creation is rather unusual and yet intuitive; you just write down what you want to do and when -- like "meeting tomorrow at six" -- and the app's smart text parsing engine will detect the time and date, and enter the rest of the text as the event title. Another nice feature is the ability to create daily automatic backups of your calendars. In terms of connectivity, the app supports all popular services and protocols, including iCloud, Google, Yahoo, and Outlook calendars. You can also sync and share calendars with other network users who have this app installed.

If you rely on calendars to schedule and keep track of appointments, you will certainly like BusyCal for Mac's power and convenience. It's a good alternative to iCal. While it does come with a price tag, the app's clean design and impressive array of features make it a worthwhile investment.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of BusyCal for Mac 2.5.4.
