Caliander is the calendar that lets you create events faster and with less effort while keeping you on top of things with its smart and unique presentation. It uses the same calendar database as Calendar.app/iCal, so it syncs with iCloud and all your devices as usual, and all your events are there—no migration needed!
Caliander is all about removing the effort it takes to maintain a calendar. Here are some of the top benefits:
- Timeline based dynamic presentation that sheds the limitations of old, static paper calendars.
- Switch on the perceptual log mode and the distant future is squeezed together to show the more import near future in greater detail. You’ll see today’s schedule in great detail, but still be reminded of all the things coming up in the next couple of days. You won't miss mum's birthday again!
- Adding events as easy as pressing ⌘N and typing "fri 5 pm After Work". x5 faster than fooling around with the mouse!
- Create events from any application, anytime using a global keyboard shortcut, even if Caliander isn't running!
No Lock In!
Because it uses the Mac OS X Calendar Store, the same calendar database that Calendar.app/iCal uses, you don't have to be afraid of your events being stuck in some proprietary format. Everything you do in Caliander immediately shows up in Calendar and vice versa. (Requires Mountain Lion. On Lion a restart of Caliander/iCal is required).

I love this app. - I have used iCal for years due to its' tight integration with all the other programs. This app improves the inteface and the visualization of your calendar. One thing that would make this app even better is ability to print this view.
crashed - now can't re-install - They sent me an email that said "Try this hotfix version and let me know how it goes. The fix is intended to go into the soon to be released 1.0.7 version." It worked but it's the trial and it seems to have interfered with the App Store version. I have a receipt from App Store but it does not show downloaded - this is a complete mess. I see my review in the "write a review" area, but I don't see it show under the application. I want to give this 5 stars, but this is a known issue and there is no mention of it in the description. That is not excusable.

Better view than iCal - The view of the calendar that this app provides is vastly superior to how iCal displays events, and that is the reason I decided to try it. Instead of viewing the calendar one month at a time you can see the entire year, or a few months at a time, in a continuous linear fashion. The app has the ability to create multiple calendars within the same application window that can be turned on and off easily - this allows you to create your calendar and turn it on and off like an overlay. You can for instance create your travel schedule for work, and then turn on the holidays calendar and see where holdiays overlap with your work schedule. I travel about half of the year and the abilty to see my travel work dates alongside a separate line with non-travel work dates makes this calendar an extremely useful organization tool for keeping track of projects and deadlines. Some things that would make this app MUCH more powerful would be adding a to-do list or project management feature to each calendar item - this would allow the app to facilitate preparation time and essential task lists for the projects in the calendar. It would also be useful if the current date and time could be automatically highlighted in the date header section of the main window. Overall a very useful app - needs a few additional features that for $18.00 should probably be included.
