  • Today 1.8 ($15) is a calendar information and organization tool for the Mac. The application retrieves events and tasks that have been entered into iCal and then displays them within a small window. Users can also use the software to create or filter events, and navigate from day to day. The new release has prepared the application for the move to Snow Leopard and also updated the French localization. Additionally, several bugs have been fixed, including one which could prevent new calendars from being read. [Download - 3MB]
