FilterCal


Current Version: 1.0.0

You participate in an organization that has provided a fabulous calendar for subscription. Unfortunately, it is TOO fabulous, and you only need to be aware of about half of the Events.

You have a nifty calendar that you would either like to put on or take off of iCloud.

Your spouse emailed you a calendar that has more birthdays and anniversaries than you really care about.

You have too many calendars that are waaaaaaay too busy.

Each of these situations (and many like them) are now easily solved with FilterCal. The exceedingly simple interface provides you an unobtrusive workspace that makes cleaning up your schedule an absolute cinch. In just a few minutes, you'll have only the Events you really need in your Calendar Database.

CalEventer


Current Version: 3.1.0

THIS is the must-have app for all Calendar users. Haven't you always wanted a simple method to see which Events are coming up in all of your calendars? Wouldn't a nice, neat, orderly listing of those Events be more useful than what is currently available? Of course it would! Right now, today, CalEventer will simplify the way you provide a visible digest of all of your upcoming Events.

Via the simple tabbed interface, you can choose any combinations of calendars, any date range, any weekdays, filter your location(s), and then output your list of Events as either plain, rich, or (X)HTML coded text, which can then be pasted into ANY word processor or text editor you wish. The Event Preview Window on the right side of the main window maintains an up-to-date collection of the Dates and Events you have selected for output. There is no new collection of software commands to learn; an incredibly intuitive interface (Click for screenshots) will lead you to an exceedingly comfortable level of organizational nirvana. It really is as simple as it looks, and you will be amazed at how much more organized your life feels.

This page has some short screen-capture videos that will help you to see how clean and simple CalEventer operates.

Take a look at a variety of output examples to give you a clearer idea of how utterly useful this app can be.

OddCal


Current Version: 2.1.1

Entering multiple dates into your Calendar is a cinch when those dates can be expressed in a nice, neat, repeating pattern. Unfortunately, when multiple dates DON'T have a clean repeat pattern, cutting and pasting Event Data in Apple's Calendar Application is an absolute nightmare!

OddCal is here to solve those dilemmas. Via the simple, intuitive interface (Click for screenshots), you can choose as many dates as you like, and assign the same Event Title (with or without a Location, Alarm, or a Note) to all of them. Events can have Start and End times, or be marked as All Day. And yes, you can choose any calendar in your Calendar application you want (as long as you have write privileges), or create a new one on the fly.

New for version 2.1.0 is the option to save OddCal Patterns. If you assemble a set of dates that you can use again for a future collection, simply select Save Pattern from the Patterns menu, and you will directed how to save your work. Later, when you want to load up the Pattern again, you select Load Pattern (also from the Patterns menu), select a saved Pattern, choose a new Start Date, and OddCal automatically calculates all the subsequent dates for your new collection.

You also have the option to generate Unique Events. Every date you place into the Date List can have its own Title, Location, Note, and Start/End times. You can have an array of Events that only differ slightly from each other, and have your calendar updated in no time.

When you need to have sequential numbers as part of your Event Title, OddCal makes that a cinch as well. You, the user, exercise FULL control over the process: you choose the Tag, the starting number, and the step interval. OddCal then generates your Events, and they are all numbered as you ordered them. After the first usage, you'll wonder how you ever managed without it!

iCloud users understand this: Any Calendar Events created with OddCal will NOT upload to iCloud until you actually launch your Calendar application. Although OddCal will add Events to the Caldendar Store database without Calendar running, apparently those Events will not appear in iCloud until the Calendar app actually sees them. Mr. CodeBoy does not fully understand this, but he is investigating the issue.

OddCal is also available for your iPhone

SchoolCal


Current Version: 1.3.1

You're in school, your kids are in school, or worse, your kids are in different schools! Sure, you can download all of the calendars for the different schedules, hang them on the refrigerator, try to organize everything, etc., etc.

Or you can spend 5 minutes with SchoolCal, and you'll have all the dates for all the vacations, Late Arrival days, Early Dismissal days, and any other school-related Events neatly written to the Calendar of your choice!

The clean, intuitive menus of SchoolCal makes the chore of tracking school schedules almost seem like fun. You can see from the screenshots how SchoolCal can be easily used to enter any and all dates associated with standard Fall to Spring school schedules.

SchoolCal provides the ability to add Events to an already existing Calendar, or to create a new one immediately, stored either on your Mac, or in iCloud.
