*** Feedback from Users of Calendar Cleaner ***
"I adore Calendar Cleaner, by the way. It saved me the trouble of manually filtering through nearly 30,000 calendar records, dating back to 1999, to remove about 3,000 duplicate records that had been created by sync misfires over the last 10 years of Palm and Mac OS syncing." —Don N.
"Calendar Cleaner: LOVE LOVE LOVE this tool. It's saved me hours of headache and heartache." —Rich S.
"Just dropping by to say good job! it works great! I've been having some issues with a self-duplicating calendar event and it cleaned it up! Syncing now is normal and trouble free." —David C.
"Very nice tools! Great scan speed for iCal events!" —Jochen W.

* Various UI enhancements and bug fixes
Good support from the developer
When I originally installed this app a few months ago it had some issues. I would click the button to have the discovered errors fixed, but when I scanned again the same errors would show up. After emailing the developer and bringing this to his attention, he got things sorted out. Now the app works great and I run it every so often to make sure my several calendars stay in good shape.
It fixed many things!
As I struggled to get several calenders to sync with each other, I kept getting duplications, both on iCal and an exchange calender; I was up to 30,000 events!
FOr some reason, I didn’t find CC right away; and all the other things I tried completely failed. Now I’m back to 4000 events.
Does not work, no answer from support
I have several e-mail accounts that sync with the calendar. I had dupicates that existsed in different accounts. Ths app says it will address these. It did not just that simple. I wrote an e-mail, sent detailed screen shots of the the problem to Calendar Cleaner Support. NO response. I wasted $5. Had to clean up the dupilcates manually. I understand that sometimes their are issues, but when support just does not answer at all, one star is what it gets.
