The second kind is the Mac user who uses the Desktop to navigate through folders and files. With the former, files and folders are found with a series of clicks. With the latter, files and folders are found with a series of double-clicks.
The difference between the two schools of navigation are summed up in Desktop Calendar Plus, an inexpensive Mac calendar app that lives where you think it lives. Not the Menubar. Not the Dock. The Desktop.
Here you go. Calendar, meet Desktop.
What you see is this giant calendar, which displays events from your Mac’s Calendar, all over the screen, but there’s more going on behind the scenes.
Desktop Calendar Plus can handle Google Calendar, display itself with a click (moving all the riffraff apps out of the way, and is easy to customize?
Customize? Change background image, colors, fonts, shadows, lines, and more.
The simplicity of the calendar and how you view it is deceptive. You can make the calendar into pretty much whatever size you want, display it on Mission Control or with a click to Show Desktop, and customize each calendar to your tastes.
The Menubar control also lets you switch calendar views– today, weekday, holiday, and each can be customized by color. There are options to display smaller calendars, change the layout, and do all kinds of things that personalize Desktop Calendar Plus beyond your expectations.
In fact, if you’re something of a control freak and love to tweak, this is the app to have.
Built in are Preferences for Appearance, Theme, Schedule, some clever calendar Options, and General setup. I’ve never seen a calendar with so many options, yet so easily used. Just click and the calendar is revealed.
