Exactly What I Needed

Read the app description carefully. This is not, nor is it intended to be, a scheduling app or a calendar repalcement like Fantastical, etc.

I’ve been using this desktop calendar for two or so years. It was one of the first apps I bought when I made the leap from PC to Mac. I needed a yearly calendar view that was quickly available without having to open an app and switch to year view. I also needed something that was large enough to see/read quickly. It is not a calendar app that you use for scheduling events. It’s a calendar. It’s view is highly customizable, but it is simply a calendar that hangs out on your desktop.

Before I purchased it, I exchanged emails with the developer to be sure it would do what I needed. The developer was very helpful. I had little difficulty customizing it. When I had a question, the developer responded in a timely fashion.

It may not be what everyone needs or wants but, it is what it says it is and it does what it says it does.

Got What I Expected ***Update***

*As has been mentioned in other complaints, there is no way to go back and adjust the settings once in place. Not good! So I’ve had to adjust the rating from five star to one until this issue is resolved.*

Exactly what I needed. An unassuming display of a calendar on my desktop. No fuss. Useful and elegant enhancement. Well pleased!

Where are the settings???

After installation there is no way to get back to the settings for this PAID APP. There is NO SUPPORT AT ALL. Please remove it or avoid false advertising.
