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.

Developer's Description

BusyCal is our new product that combines a beautiful, personal desktop calendar with our award winning calendar sharing and syncing technology -- in one integrated application. Designed for families and small workgroups, BusyCal allows users to easily and cost-effectively share calendars on a local area network and over the internet without the need for a dedicated server, and to sync with Google Calendar. Shared calendars can be viewed and edited by multiple users and changes are instantly synchronized between users. In addition to calendar syncing, BusyCal also provides the ability to enter and view event details in a non-modal floating window or an embedded info pane; create To Dos, including recurring To Dos, that display in the calendar and auto-forward until completed; display events in several customizable views including a List View and scrolling Month and Week Views; display graphics, sticky notes, live weather feeds and moon phases in your calendar; apply custom font styles and colors to events; and display alarms in a window and on the menu bar. Plus a whole host of under the hood performance improvements. BusyCal syncs with the iPhone, MobileMe, and just about any other application or device that supports Sync Services. And its backward compatible with BusySync too.
