This would be a 5 star app (UPDATED) - ORIGINAL POST: This would be a 5 star app but it won't update the day of the week for some reason. I have to quit and relaunch dateline for it to change to the current day. I do not understand why this is. If I can figure out why and fix this problem then I will change this to 5 stars. Otherwise it is a slick and customizable calendar. UPDATE: I have changed my rating (as promised). I toyed around with the styles and now it updates flawlessly. I do not know why it was not updating before, but I know that I have used many different fonts, styles, vertical/horizontal, stretched/squashed, few days ahead/many days ahead, and messed with other settings as well and it works perfectly. It is VERY attractive and I use it daily.

It is not what it looks like. - This app is not integrated into the desktop as it shows. It is also quite slow.

Desktop Level is Essential... - Desktop level is essential for this app to remain in my workflow. I understand Lion changed things, but I don't need the pop up menu items. What I really need is to have the ability to embed this at the desktop level so that it always stays on the desktop (doesn't overlay on other apps, AND moves with spaces from space to space). I don't need to click on anything, I just need to see my calendar at a glance by mousing over all of the dates. This is a beautiful app and really amazingly executed, but this is the one thing holding it back. Again, I know Lion gimped this somewhat with restrictions, but the pop up boxes aren't what make this app powerful- its the ability to quickly see your calendar at a glance with a quick mouse hover. Thanks for listening!

Review by Jonathanbruns

Bring back desktop level - I'm still on SL and I downloaded this app for its integration with the desktop and as a supplement to my geektool setup. Removing the desktop level option as a bugfix is absurd. -- bugfixes update the original code so it works with the new OS, while incuding all the previous features, not simply removing a key feature, and declaring it debugged. So thats pretty annoying. Can we hope that desktop level is going to be back? I would hope that it is, having dateline a floating window and messing with spaces is pretty irritating. I can understand if this was just a quick fix, but I would really like it baaaaack. Other than my Mega rant about one simple feature... you guys did a bang-up job, and it looks great. So well done.... -->but get that feature back. :) Thanks, Jonathan ps remember that you have a significant population (expecially with apps like geektool and dateline), where the users aren't going to be updating to new OS for at least a few major updates, or untill stability is proven.

Review by ifrogcritic

Works for Mavericks - I was a little hesitant to buy this since the last update was in 2011, but I’m glad to report that it still works. For anyone else interested in optimizing their desktop, check out geektools. That is where I discovered Dateline. Only thing I wish the developer would do is: 1) give an update. Although the program works fine, I think the program could use some finetuning especially around the ical and reminders options 2) allow the dateline to appear on all windows and spaces. I use 2 monitors and each monitor has at least one spaces, but only the main monitor and main space has the dateline appear on it. It’s still a 5-star app because there isn’t another app that is quite like this.
