The Best Mac Tools Calendar Apps
Organizing your calendar is a simple and quick process. The best mac tools calendar apps are clean and functional designs and sync well between your Mac and iPhone or iPad. They allow you to divide your work and home calendars and display only the appointments that are important to you. You can also customize your agenda view and add features such as natural-language processing, as well as drag-and-drop allocation for meetings.
One of the most recognizable names in mac tools, Apple’s Calendar is free and already is included with every Mac. Its simplicity makes it an ideal option for anyone who wants to get the basics. However, it also integrates with iMessage, Mail, and Siri so your appointments show up in those apps. It has a variety of perspectives including monthly and weekly with an agenda view as well as a year-in-review. Apple Maps shows addresses and you can get a travel time notification before an appointment. It doesn’t come with a task list, but you can opt in to pull your tasks from Todoist or Reminders and show them alongside your scheduled appointments.
Another option is BusyCal that appears similar to Apple’s Calendar at first glance but it has a few distinct differences. It offers five main views (daily week, month and year as well as a list) and features natural language processing that provides real-time feedback in real time, and lets you change the time for meetings. It can also show your tasks and integrates with apps like Trello and Todoist to manage tasks (creating new events as Todoist cards or Zapier actions). It isn’t able to connect as easily to multiple accounts as some other options on this list. However it does work with iCloud Exchange.
