BusyCal 1.0 shares calendars over Internet, LAN

updated 11:15 am EDT, Tue September 29, 2009

Designed for small groups

BusyMac has launched the first version of BusyCal, a new calendar application. The software shares calendars over LAN connections as well as the Internet, in either case bypassing the need for a central server. Edits can be made by multiple users, and once committed they are synced to other group members, as well as to iCal, MobileMe, Google Calendar and iPhones. More hardware and software should be compatible through Sync Services.

Editing options include images and sticky notes, repeating and one-time To Do items, plus several viewing modes including List, Month and Week displays. Alarms can be shown in windows or the Menu Bar, and displays can also present live information in the form of lunar phases and weather. BusyCal runs on Mac OS X 10.5 or later, and costs $40.
