Description:

Dupe Devil for iCal is the quick, easy way to fix duplicate entries in iCal.

Did you run into problems during your transition to the cloud? If some calendar events are appearing two or three times, or events with alarms 'magically' ended up with the same alarm multiple times, Dupe Devil is for you.

Did you restore from a backup only to find that part of your backup overlaps with existing data, and now it looks like you have to go to that long, boring meeting not once but four times next Monday? Run Dupe Devil and breath a sigh of relief.

Do you want to merge two calendars into one, but some of the same appointments are in both? Just do the merge and let Dupe Devil do the cleanup.

For maximum stability and reliability, Dupe Devil works directly with your calendars via Apple's own Calendar Framework interface; unlike other applications, it does not use 'hacks' to talk to iCal.

Great! - Works exactly as advertised! For a future upgrade, some of my events were duplicated into two calendars… it would be great if the cleanUp of Duplicates could be done across a series of selected calendars… so that I don't have to merge them into 1. :)

Does not work! - I dowloaded this app because I had immense amounts of duplicated events between my local calendars and iCloud calendars. However, when I tried using it, it gave me the same message no matter what I did. It said that it detected the events in the selected dates, but did not find ANY duplicates. WHAT?!?!?! It wouldn't delete any duplicated events, even if I deselelcted the Home calendar in iCloud like the message told me. I spent 99 cents and ended up deleting them manually. Lame. Don't buy this app. Don't buy this app. HAH delete THOSE duplicates!

Just what I needed - This was the simplest possible case, identical entries of the same type, but it did exactly what I wanted and the duplicate entries are gone.

Does it - Worked like a charm for me. My GF's new Galaxy S3 somehow duplicated all my google calendar entries while it was syncing over. Used this to clean up my iCal and then sync back to google. I knocked off one star because it wasn't completely clear what was happening. I'd prefer an option to first detect dupes, then optionally review them, then delete some or all of them.

Review by marinegator

did not work - I have numerous duplicates. Said none found. also not all calendar events searched. No national holidays searched for duplicates & no apparent way to add other calendars other than the ones the program has selected
