A free collection of various utilities, Calendar Magic allows you to perform actions that are related to calendars and time-keeping in general. While the software does come with over 60 features, it is not meant to be used as a day-to-day calendaring solution, being more like a Swiss Army knife of many unrelated utilities.

Pros

Multiple calendar formats: Calendar Magic comes packed with over 30 calendars, including religious, national, and even historical ones like the French Revolutionary Calendar. In addition to viewing them, you can also compare them side-by-side.

Date and time calculators: You can add and subtract days, weeks, months, and years from a given date and view the results immediately. The same option is available for time calculations involving days, hours, minutes, and seconds.

Multitude of other options: There's no shortage of features when it comes to this application. You'll find more than 60 distinct options that range from utilities telling you when you would reach your 10,000th day alive, to taking notes and creating reminders, to using a world clock, to doing completely unrelated tasks like using a scientific calculator.

Cons

Basic interface: Although the interface is straightforward, it is also very basic, displaying nearly all output as words in a large text box, rather than graphical objects. On the bright side, the text is usually well formatted, so the app is quite usable.

Poor reminders implementation: Adding reminders is a very convoluted process. Additionally, there is no way for reminders to display alerts on your desktop or in any other manner.

Bottom Line

Despite its name, Calendar Magic should not be used as a time management solution due to its very limited capabilities in this regard. Its main use is to find answers to any time and date questions you might have. If you take the time to study the "Math Utilities" and "Other Utilities" menus, you will find other uses for it as well, although these can be replaced in most cases with a quick Google search.

What's new in version 18.8
  • Enlarged Views - Following a suggestion from a user, the method for displaying enlarged views of text output has been totally redesigned. Now an enlarged view will occupy as much screen "vertical real estate" as possible. For example, on modern screens with diagonal lengths greater than 15.6 inches, a full year calendar should now be completely visible. The F11 function key continues to be used for toggling between enlarged and normal views.
  • Reminders - When Calendar Magic is started up, different short sounds are now used to indicate if there is a reminder set for the current date and, if not, if there is one occurring within the next 7 days. For the former, a short sound is played twice; for the latter, the short sound is played once only. This feature has been added primarily for the benefit of blind and visually impaired users.
  • Special Calendars - Added an option "Swedish and Finnish Calendars for 1700 to 1712" to display the calendars used in Sweden (Finland was part of Sweden at that time) during this period. Remarkably the calendar for 1712 contains 30 days in February.
  • Factor Calculator - Any unacceptably long factorisation may now be terminated by the Ctrl+T keyboard key combination rather than having to use the Task Manager to end the process yafu.exe.
  • Time Zones - Updated the time zone information for North Korea. On August 15, 2015 it changed from UTC + 9 hours to UTC + 8.5 hours.
  • Winter Olympics - Added data for the Beijing Winter Olympics in 2022.
  • World-wide Locations Database - At the request of a user, added Gassa Chare, Ethiopia to Calendar Magic's database of world-wide locations.
  • Observed Days - Added Black Friday (4th Friday in November) to the list of Observed Days under "various".
  • Translations - Translated versions of the list of Calendar Magic's main features are now available in Belarussian, Italian, Polish, Spanish and Thai.
