Editors' Review

Calendars and computers go together like bread and butter. Calendar Magic from EuroSoft is the best program we've seen for applying computing power to datekeeping. It can display virtually any calendar system known to science or history. How many calendar programs offer the French Revolutionary calendar; four Hindu calendars; two Balinese calendars; and Julian, Coptic, Hebrew, Yoruba, Ethiopian, Chinese, Baha'i, Bangla, and many other systems? Or can display Christian, Islamic, Jewish, and other holidays, feast days, and significant dates for any year in any calendar system? And save notes, post reminders, and offer 26 extra utilities that do everything from calculate fuel consumption to recurring decimals to biorhythms? Did we mention it's free?

Calendar Magic is very easy to set up and use; all you really need to remember is the Main Screen button, which returns you to the program's compact, customizable interface. The interface displays personal reminders in its main view, below the date bar, with the (optional) Julian Day displayed above the software's home location, London, England. Since we live elsewhere, the first thing we did was change the Location to the Faeroe Islands. The second thing we did was change it to our real location, which also displayed local sunrise and sunset times when we clicked the button to return to the main screen. This is the typical options setup process, and one we found handy. Though you can access any of the program's calendars, dates, times, reminders, quick notes, or utilities from the File menu, the easiest way to use Calendar Magic is to add the calendars and other features you use most often to the Favorites menu, which we did. Now clicking Favorites opened a brief menu listing just our stuff, such as the Persian arithmetic calendar, special calendar for Luxembourg, Chinese religious festivals, and the regnal date conversion tool for all English and British monarchs; essential, each one.

What else? Well, there's the Alarm Clock, Stopwatch, and Reaction Timer. Password protection. Body mass index, blood alcohol content, ovulation, and pregnancy calculators. Mayan and Aztec Constants. Epochs. The Traveling Salesman Problem. We haven't checked yet, but we're hoping it does the dishes, too. Major keeper.

"A Great Freeware Progrm"

October 29, 2012  |  By mrschwartz

 |  Version: Calendar Magic 17.9

Pros

Easy installation and operation. Works reliably. Nice accessory features. Dazzling array of different calendar formats.

Cons

The event description field is a bit limited; would like room for more characters. Latest version, v18, sometimes gives error message and freezes when I attempt to close program. Would recommend v17 to avoid this.

Summary

A great little freeware program with lots of nice accessories.

"Good replacement for Microsoft Address book."

April 11, 2012  |  By edwardsj42

 |  Version: Calendar Magic 18.0

Pros

15 pages to save addresses, phone numbers are important notes.

Shows all your scheduled appointments you have recorded on start of computer.

Monthly Calendars are available to view.

Cons

No cons that I can think of.

Summary

I downloaded this to replace the address book that Microsoft eliminated from their operating system starting with Windows Vista. The pages can be copied, saved and pasted which prevents loss of information when computer needs repair.

"The Swiss army knife of calendar software"

June 11, 2011  |  By cd527phd

 |  Version: Calendar Magic 17.8

Pros

A myriad of tools available for people interested in calendars. Has a very diverse amount of calculator utilities.

Cons

Access to help only available through the main screen not on each screen. Planning calendars are of limited format. Color selection of screens is limited. Reminders are limited. Return to the main screen message not consistent.

Summary

This is an interesting software program designed for people that use more than just a Gegorian Calendar system for dates. A number of different calendars (e.g., Hebrew, various Hindu, Islamic, Farsi, etc.) are available to the user. On installation and first use you are asked to identify the country your in and a town near you to set the time which can be easily changed. Date conversions, days between dates, religious festivals (for a wide variety of religions), and other so-so useful date information is provided (Olympiads, dates of reign for English monarchs).

The variety of the utilities provided is amazing. The calculators are primarily designed for specific use -- although a general scientific calculator is provided. Biorhythm, Body Mass Index, Blood Alcohol, pregnancy, and ovulation calculators are also available and interesting to try.

The help menu is very good, but only available by returning to the main screen which delays computational work. Modifying the color options is very limited. Only grey or a light blue is allowed although individual screens can be changed.

Overall, if you are just looking for a fairly straightforward calendar program or personal information manager -- this in not the one. It is loaded with all kinds of functions and utilities that most users will find novel to use, but not useful for their work. However, if you are doing international work or communicating with people from other countries this calendar program may be very useful for you. If you are interested in comparing calendars from different regions or calendaring systems than this is the software for you.

"Nothing that can't be fixed."

January 31, 2011  |  By Ems1681

 |  Version: Calendar Magic 17.7

Pros

It do mostly what I need for it, and much more

Cons

Maybe a popup option would be nice for ugent reminders.

Summary

I absolutely got more than what I bargained for. But I am very forgetful and would have loved a pop-up reminder, (something small in a corner on the computer) that I could set until a certain time of the day, that can remind me to do stuff.

"Name should be "world wide calender""

January 02, 2011  |  By poulstaun

 |  Version: Calendar Magic 17.7

Pros

Calenders in all forms--and religions. Not all sizes though.
With a lot of calculator stuff, and a nice reminder, and clocks
worldwide and alarm

Cons

I had hoped for a program with different printable calenders, and one to stay on top of screen. This is not it.
It can not be set to startup at Ur choice

Summary

A interesting program--and for those who need a lot of calculators

What's new in version 18.5
Version 18.5:
  • List of Reminders - When reminders are listed on the main screen, if two consecutive reminders occur on the same date, you may now reverse the order in which they are listed by left-clicking one of the two reminder messages and then using the Ctrl+UpArrow or Ctrl+DownArrow keyboard key combination as appropriate. Any such change is "sticky".
  • Factor Calculator and Prime Calculator - Calendar Magic now auto-detects whether the Windows OS is 32-bit or 64-bit and then uses the appropriate YAFU executable. Before any YAFU based factorisation, old YAFU data and log files are now automatically removed. This helps to ensure more consistent run times when a factorisation is repeated. Updated YAFU from V1.29 to V1.34.
  • Time Zones and Use of DST - In October, 2014 Russia implemented major changes to its time zones and also abandoned the use of DST in future years. Belarus has also decided to remain on permanent "summer time". These changes have been incorporated in Calendar Magic.
  • World-wide Locations Database - Added the following Russian cities and towns - Baley, Bodaibo, Chelyuskin, Cherskiy, Druzhina, Dudinka, Evensk, Khapcheranga, Khasan, Khatanga, Mirny, Nikolaevsk-on-Amur, Okha, Othosk, Palana, Pevek, Provideniya, Salekhard, Tiksi, Tura, Turukhansk, Tynda, Udachny, Uelen, Ust-Ordynskiy, Vanavara and Verkhoyansk.
  • Observed Days - Added Armed Forces Day (last Saturday in June) to the list of observed days for England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
  • Travelling Salesman Problem - Added a data file (Commonwealth capitals.tsp) for the 71 countries and territories sending athletes to the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.
