This calendar is exactly what I was looking for, something in the background I can see without having to click around to an application. It syncs with my calendar app. I don’t use Google calendar so I don’t have the problems other users mention. It does take a few minutes for the calendar to download based on how much is in your calendar. The size and location on the screen can be changed, everything is custonizeable. Thank you! What a great app!

Very nice app

Works great for me in Yosemite and I have no issue displaying Google calendars. Highly customizable. I had a hard time deciding between this app and Blotter but ultimately chose DCP.

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.
