Tweak iCal With These Tips

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 03:00 AM

"iCal will be getting a major upgrade once it's fully integrated into iCloud, but until then you may want to tame the beast with a few easy tweaks."

Good article about getting the most out of iCal. I've used many different calendar programs for iOS but I always come back to iCal, what calendar program have you found most useful?

Doodle Connects With iCal

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 01:00 PM

"Mac users of the cloud-based scheduling service Doodle will be happy to learn that the company has released a beta of its iCal Connector software for Mac."

This is a service that lets you send out meeting dates to clients, coworkers, friends etc, along with a poll on what date and time is going to best serve each of them. Once you have the results, you can schedule the date and time that best suites the most recipients. Tentative dates are displayed on Outlook or Google Calendar, and now can also be displayed in iCal. Once the date is decided all tentative dates go away. We use this where I work and it is pretty slick, and makes organizing a meeting between people with varying shifts and/or schedules a breeze. It's also free so that's a bonus.

iCalShare is Back, With More Calendars

"Remember iCalShare? The calendar-sharing site-once touted by Steve Jobs during a Macworld Expo keynote-seemed to have vanished for a while, but it's now back, and even easier to use. iCalShare now provides more than 3,500 free calendars in 40 categories, with its search tool and interface both undergoing improvements in its latest incarnation."

You can check out all their calendars at their site, iCalShare, and it is worth a look. I use several of these for sport schedules and holidays. It is pretty easy, and the only requirement after creating an account is to make sure you use the iCalendar (.ics) format. This is a sharing site only, it doesn't help you create or host any, but it certainly makes finding that special or obscure calendar. And it beats finding all the dates and entering them manually!

Tips for iCal and Subscriptions

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 12:00 PM

http://www.tuaw.com/2009/07/14/mac-...-subscriptions/

"iCal has always been an elegant program. Though it has a "subscribe" function for public calendars, it hasn't always played nicely with other devices and other calendars. This limitation forced many a user to seek greener pastures elsewhere, like Google Calendar."

In our family we have the family plan mobile me, as well as 3 iPhones so not being able to effectively share calendars that will show up on our iPhones has always been an annoyance. Well has been is the key since that has been fixed with the iPhone 3.0 upgrade. This article goes into how to add subscriptions to your iCal, but once you learn how to add subscriptions, how do you get them on your iPhone? Well, read on to find out!

iCal and Google Calendar Together At Last

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 08:00 AM

"The Google Calendar team is proud to announce the public release of our support for the CalDAV protocol. You can now use Apple iCal with your Google Calendar, so you can work even when you're offline, sync almost instantly, respond to invitations from others and see the free/busy data of your friends and coworkers."

Now that's pretty cool, and on top of it, Google even has Calaboration, an iCal configuration tool, available just to make things go a little smoother during your setup. If you're one of those "everything in the cloud" types, this isn't a bad application and to top it all off, it's free!
