Customer Reviews

Fantastic customer support

A few days before Christmas my BusyCal started acting up: I had unlinked and relinked my iCloud calendars and BusyCal started crashing on start-up (every darn time). I rant through the basic fixes I could think of but with no avail. Flummoxed, I decided to ask for help from the folks at BusyCal, not really expecting much—certainly not a live response within 39 minutes. Over the course of the several emails the customer support rep (or reps) worked with me to find the problem and come up with a fix by midafternoon and I was one my way again. I remain very, very impressed.

Also, as someone who has been using BusyCal since May 2011—and who uses it to aggregate my iCloud, Outlook/Exchange, and Google calendars—I really simply can say enough about it’s functionality. It’s a rich application and incredibly stable (and clearly has phenomenol customer support). I really can’t imagine using anything else.


Saved me from losing my mind!

I started using BusyCal when Apple split their To Do list from their calendar and created Reminders. As a freelance designer, I use my calendar and To Do list in conjunction all day long so I FREAKED OUT when they were split, it was so cumbersome. After a couple “dropped balls” I started looking for a replacement calendar, Microsoft was not an option.

I found BusyCal and LOVE it! I can easily create a Google calendar for my PC peeps, then simply import and run it from BusyCal and have EVERYTHING I need in one calendar…. oh, and did I say that it syncs seemlessly with my iPhone and iPad? So many tools and features and I have never had a glitch.

It is a manditory piece of software for me, Love, Love, Love this app.

Superbly stable, Refreshingly Consistent!

This is a great app from a great team. There aren't too many thoughtful, useful apps out there anymore that stick with what works. This is the main thing I like about BusyCal (BC). The main functionality of the software DOES NOT CHANGE from version to version. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU BusyMac! Yes, innovation is important, and making seemingly arbitrary changes sometimes *does* change the world (thanks, Apple), but when I learn a workflow, embrace keyboard commands, and become productive using a particular method, I DO NOT WANT THAT TO CHANGE dramatically every year (No thanks, Apple!) BC is just that, useful software that works!
