Itsycal for Mac

Some of us will remember the old times when Fantastical started as a little calendar app in the menubar. Those days are long gone now and Fantastical has become a full-fledged calendar app with a lot of options and features. I know that there are people out there who miss the times when Fantastical just had been this little menubar app.

There is a freeware tool out there that looks quite interesting:

I never heard about this tool, but it is not new. It definitely is no Fantastical replacement for those of us who value its feature set as of today. But … it might be worth a look, if you just want a nice looking option in your menubar to display your calendar (with some more features).


This is one of the first apps I install on any new machine. It’s so good!


Installed. What a great little app! Thanks for the tip!

Thanks! I like this li’l app.

Calendar app trivia: Fantastical started as a text box in the menu bar because one of the founders had developed the text parsing engine for school, and was trying to figure out how to make it useful.


Tech trivia! We all’d make a heck of a team.


I’ve been using Itsycal for years. It’s rock solid.

A small app that makes a huge difference. Thanks for recommending! Much more effective than Calendar alone.
