Review by Laura Lynnie

Just Lovely! - I love this app! It is so easy to set up & personalize. With all the aesthetic tweaks you can make, I had my desktop looking sleek & functional. You can change line thickness & color, fonts, number placement, subsidiary calendar layout, calendar size, transparency, weekend & holiday notation, & themes. I created my own theme with a picture & settings of my own. Just a note: the user who claimed it did not work did not realize that the large number below the main calendar month's name is the month number, not the day/date (October, 10th month). I had no issues whatsoever getting it up & running--it was a seamless installation. Giving the app the ability to link to iCal would be an added plus, & I did read at the support web site that the feature is coming! But regardless, if you are looking for a way to dress up your desktop, I give this app 5 stars for creativity & 4 stars for functionality (only because there is no interface with iCal. When that update comes, it's 5 stars all around!).

DON’T BUY THIS.. Won’t connect to Google Calendar, no customer service, NO REFUND - The title says it all. I got screwed out of $7. Apple, in typical fashion, hates its users and turns a deaf ear to failed products in their store. Not happy.

not impressed - what a waste of money. I added birthdays and also work schedule; some show up perfectly as typed; others say in very small print,(others, 1). I can click on that and see what it is referring to but that’s not what I thought I was paying for. I thought I was getting at a glance, calendar. Please advise, uptdate the app or return my money.

Version 1.3.6
Review by J. McDonald

Good interface and works well, but... - I like this calendar. I was hoping that the background of the calendar could be made solid white instead of transparent only. I would like the option to have the Month Name on the calendar instead of the number of the month. That being said, I would recommend this app.

Review by user1724

Works well, would like to see a few changes - It works well as designed. I would like to see a few changes to make it really useful. First, when you get toward the end of the month the calendar view becomes of little value. It would be nice to see the “next 4 weeks” rather than the current month. Second, even better, would be a list view of all upcomming events. The no long supported iDeskCal app was great for this. You could see a list of upcomming events on the desktop, without having a big calendar.
