"Very happy with BusyCal"

December 07, 2010  |  By clinto--2008

 |  Version: BusyCal 1.5

Pros

Very complete feature set. Ease of use.

Cons

Price is a bit on the high side

Summary

Yeah, the price is on the high side - I had to think awhile before buying BusyCal. But I'm glad I did.

I've been using Now Up To Date for years - I think since 1.0. Support for NUD went away a couple of years ago and the company folded about a year ago. NUD was starting to get flaky on my Mac. But I kept using it because of the feature set, ease of use, etc. Each time a new release of iCal came out, I checked it out, and continued to be disappointed by how light it is on features. I was dreading the day that NUD would stop working and I would have to switch to iCal.

I finally tried BusyCal and was stoked from the moment I launched it and checked out the preferences and menus. They basically ported at least 90% of NUD's features over to an iCal compatible platform. All the features that I have come to rely on (and that iCal doesn't have) were there. I'm just a one-man home-office user. No need to share calendars, no need to sync over a network - I don't use or need any of those features of BusyCal, and it was still worth the purchase price for me. The list of features they have on their web site is far from complete - it has a lot more.

If you used (or are still using) Now Up To Date, I suggest switching to BusyCal today. (They have a free utility that will transfer your NUD calendar over to iCal format.) If you've heard about the NUD features and wondered what all the fuss was about, download BusyCal and do the 30 day trial. I think you'll be very pleasantly surprised.

I pretty much never write software reviews, but I was so happy with this software that I finally broke down and wrote a review.

Yeah, it would have been nice if the price were a bit lower, But given how much I rely on my calendar, it's not a big deal. Look at it this way - it's less than a dollar a week for the first year of use and after that it's paid for.
