*** Feedback from Users of Calendar Cleaner ***
"I adore Calendar Cleaner, by the way. It saved me the trouble of manually filtering through nearly 30,000 calendar records, dating back to 1999, to remove about 3,000 duplicate records that had been created by sync misfires over the last 10 years of Palm and Mac OS syncing." —Don N.
"Calendar Cleaner: LOVE LOVE LOVE this tool. It's saved me hours of headache and heartache." —Rich S.
"Just dropping by to say good job! it works great! I've been having some issues with a self-duplicating calendar event and it cleaned it up! Syncing now is normal and trouble free." —David C.
"Very nice tools! Great scan speed for iCal events!" —Jochen W.

Good support from the developer - When I originally installed this app a few months ago it had some issues. I would click the button to have the discovered errors fixed, but when I scanned again the same errors would show up. After emailing the developer and bringing this to his attention, he got things sorted out. Now the app works great and I run it every so often to make sure my several calendars stay in good shape.
Caution: Cancellation messages will be sent for every deleted iCal entry. - I just got done explaining the cause of a flood of cancellation notices to over 900 people. All entries from 1/1/2009 to today that were either merged or deleted caused a firestorm of deletions and follow on replies explaining what had happened. This included all my customers. Even worse, all my former prospects that didn't buy our products were very confused by a cancellation dating back 2 years.

Colors gone, events repeat forever - All my colors disappeared, a bunch of yearly events now repeat every day, the app froze up midway through the process as well. My calendars are now worse rather than better. At least I have backups and I’m only out four bucks. Disappointing.
It crashes all the time - Terrible experience. It didn’t work at all. It crashes all the time…:(
Surprised by the poor reviews! - I have used this app for YEARS, and never had any of the issues anyone is talking about in the negative reviews (all/current versions)… I read about 5 pages deep in comments. The positive feedback is more accurate in my opinion. It fixes any and all errors within iCal and is such a time saver! If you’ve had issues, take the time to learn the program. Read as you go, don’t just click buttons willy-nilly. You get 5 stars from me Calendar Cleaner!
Highly recommended to make things worse - Scan works fine - duplicate events are well identified. The suggested resolution is a merge of the duplicates - in my case (thank God I only tested it once), it was a birthday. The « details » of the resulting event mention that it will become a daily occurence, and you cannot modify that. If you’re an optimist like I am, you think it must be a UI bug, because otherwise it would be silly, wouldn’t it? Well, you’d be wrong. I’m happy to announce to the world that my grandmother’s birthday is now every single day, from the beginning of time to the end of it. And if you’re wondering, yes, it is EXTREMELY annoying.
a bridge too far - I don't know how I got one birthday announcement fighting with a second announcement trying to ring the bell at the same time...but...The announcement then propagated themselve to EVERY day in my caledar. Removing the birthday person from my "Contacts" was the beginning of the fix and I still had a lot of cleanup. Somewhere in my thrashing path to solution All of my color references vanished and the result was a black and white calendar...sad. Perhaps it was that I had moved onto Mojave. At any rate this app created a lot duplicate entries in both my "Contacts" file and my calendar.
