So good to have everything integrated

VP of feeling groovy

I've been using BusyCal and busy contacts on my Mac for quite a while and like them very much. I've just started using BusyCal for my iPhone and it is so amazing to have all my to do's in Reminders sent with invisible in my calendar. Great job, please keep making it better!

C’mon - give us some views we can use

Fun Fun Fun in the Sun

I thought Busycal might actually put some effort into this app but no ... Week views using bar graphics?- USELESS for people with full calendars - we require week views with line item descriptions like Pocket Informant, Week Calendar, SaiSuke2 and so many others. C’mon guys - is it that hard to put in an agenda view?

Not as good as Fantasical

Pete Seaforth

First of all, I use BusyCal and BusyContacts, so I was excited to see the iOS app finally appear. However, the app is not up to the standard set by Fantastical so I won't be using it. Compare the screen shots for each app if you're curious as to what's missing.
