BusyCal Calendar sharing

BusyMac (Booth No. #3526-I) on Monday has announced BusyCal, its latest desktop calendar application that combines the company's BusySync technology with a calendar interface recognizable to iCal users. BusyCal enables people to share and annotate iCal calendars using Bonjour over a local area network (LAN), without the need of a dedicated server; it is able sync with both Google Calendar and the iPhone via iTunes or MobileMe. Containing multiple-user editing capabilities and password protection options as read-write or read-only, users with full access can make changes to the calendars while offline, which will then be automatically synchronized once the connection to the network is re-established.

Other features of the software include the ability to add various icons, floating graphics and background images/themes to the calendar, add sharable sticky notes, plus view live weather forecasts and moon phases.

The program also provides a customizable list view to help filter and sort events, a repeating to-do option that will allow the specified task to be carried-forward until completed, and customizable text.

Compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 or later, BusyCal is due to be released sometime in the spring and will be priced at $40 per computer. Customers who purchase BusySync prior to the release of BusyCal can upgrade for $10 when it ships.

    I want an Apple solution

    This is the kind of stuff Apple needs to add to the MobileMe family accounts. Also, a better way to share documents between family members. I think right now you can only have one password protected folder on your iDisk.
