Any app that gets used by the Mac masses also breeds plenty of add on applications.
Some do what Calendar does not, others make Calendar easier to use. And a few are downright expensive considering OS X’s price tag is less than $20. When it comes to useful add on apps I tend to prefer bargain values similar to Calendario. For a few dollars you get functionality that Apple somehow overlooked but becomes very useful, very quickly.
Click the Mac’s Menubar to reveal about all you need to know for today’s events.
One click displays Calendar in a drop down box, calendarized, of course. Switch calendars from month to month with a click. Or, right click to get Calendario Preferences.
Click on a date and view events. Click on the month and move to any month forward or backwards (saves clicks). With Calendario living in the Menubar there’s no need to open up Calendar or iCal to view events.
The only thing that is actually easier is a long since forgotten Dashboard Widget called iCal Events which displayed the day’s Calendar events with a flick of the screen pointer to a hotspot.
