I always get excited about new technology/apps/anything that helps productivity ( or are just plan awesome ) — and I’ve recently started using BusyCal for my calendar. I was originally just using iCal, but ran into some issues with syncing, because my account is with google calendar. So after doing some research and trying the free version of BusyCal, I was hooked.
Some great aspects to it:
• I used to use TeuxDeux for everything. BUT BusyCal has it’s own To Do lists (on the right hand side). Plus this syncs with Apple’s reminders app, so I can access them from my phone on the go! I can also add certain To Do’s on whatever day in my calendar, tomorrow of even three weeks ahead. I think I also like having the To Do’s right near my calendar so everything is together in one place.
• The weather! BusyCal gives a little weather report for the next week or so! And with cool little illustrations.
• Because I use Google Calendar as my account, I have a lot of old calendars for old clients, which can be annoying in my list on the left. With BusyCal you can upsubscribe from specific calendars and hide them from the list – keeping everything organized!
I’m sure there are a lot my really great features I could share! Do any of you use BusyCal? What are some other apps you use and love?
Here are some others I love:
