Everything Apple Calendar Left Out

I originally got BusyCal because Apple Calendar was having trouble syncing with all my different calendar servers. Since then Apple has fixed the Calendar bugs, but I stuck with BusyCal. It has a cleaner UI, and adds all the little features and configuration options that Calendar is missing. Plus, there is real support if you have a problem. In El Capitan some of the animations were disabled, which I hope gets re-added in the future. Worth it!

BusyCal2 + BusyCntacts + Apple Sync = Great CRM

After trying the native Apple apps, Outlook for Mac and Salesforce, I have finally found a CRM platform that meets my needs. I maintain several Exchange and iCloud calendars. I need to organize thousands of contacts, build calling plans and record our interactions. This history must be readily available and logically structured. The combination of these two apps is fully meeting my needs. The synchronization with the native Apple apps has thus far been error free. Highly recommend this platform.

Great dependable calendar app

I found Busycal shortly after I converted to the Mac and have used it for several years now. Solid and dependable app with great functionality. The support for Exchange is generally great and makes Busycal a good alternative to Outlook.
