TimeWorks displays your calendar events in a window, on your Desktop or over your screen saver.

The aim is to display a user's iCal and other Calendar Events in a pleasing, compelling and useful fashion, as boxes which dynamically move towards a finish line. Set a lookahead time horizon and events appear on the display and move across the window or desktop towards "now". How far into the future an event is can be immediately seen by how far it is from the line.

The display can be in a window, on the desktop or over the screen saver. All events automatically update and synchronise with the system so no user intervention is required.

TimeWorks was originally called iCalViewer. As such, it is the original app for viewing calendar events outside iCal. For more than seven years, it has been displaying events in windows and on Mac Desktops all over the world. Now TimeWorks comes to the Mac App store, ready to deliver events to your Desktop.


Feature Highlights:
* Displays in a Window, on the Desktop, or over the screen saver.
* Exposé HotKey support brings the display quickly into view.
* Can be set to only show on pressing the hotkey.
* Double-clicking through to iCal (currently disabled in the Desktop view).
* Runs on any attached screen.

"Your core [TimeWorks] idea is so good, so useful and so well done that it is stands alone and is an essential part of my daily life and business organization and planning. I'd DIE if I didn't have your program."

Customer Reviews

Great app!! And great service!

This app is one of the few I know that shows calendars' events in a horizontal format, which is more intuitive for me. You can show your calendars' events in either the app's own window or on the desktop (which is very cool!).

It is loaded with very useful preferences, which is one of my signposts for a good app.

I accidentally broke the app the day and the developer had me up and running the next day!

Comes with a 30-day fully functional demo for you to play around with.


Not happy

There is no way to scale the calendar items, so if you have multiple busy calendars, it will completely cover your desktop. I am not pleased with the app, but there is no way to get a refund, so I’m out $9.99 for an app that I find completely useless.
