Other calendar apps don't know the meaning of holidays — yCal does! While
for other apps, holidays are (at best) just normal events, yCal has an
explicit notion of holidays and understands to show these days in a
different fashion than other events. This gives you an extra advantage in
quickly grasping the "big picture".
Want to manage all birthdays from a single place? yCal will help you! Of
course, yCal has access to OS X's built-in birthday calendar — but in addition,
it helps joining birthday information from multiple sources and calendars
into one concise and consistent list.
No Proprietary Data Store
It's all in native Mac OS X calendars! yCal doesn't keep any proprietary
data store that may be hard to reach with other programs. All marks, notes,
holidays, and birthdays are stored as standard calendar items and are visible
and accessible in all other calendar apps.
Full Year at a Glance
What gives yCal its name: have the full year on one screen! The "months
by column" design leaves enough space to show meaningful information on
the individual days and gives a much better feeling for the sequence of time
(and days). Drag the view horizontally to quickly flip through the years.
Mark Your Days
Want to mark days or weeks to get an even better overview — for example
on days off, school vacations, travel time, or special events? Just define
some markers in yCal, choose style and color, and off you go! It's just
great to see all your year's vacation time just in a single glance!
Remember your old-style paper calendar? It was so simple to just scribble
some notes onto it. With yCal, you can do the same — completely hassle-free!
Just start typing, and the text will be added as a note to the currently
selected day. It's that simple! No additional clicks or menu selection to
annoy you, no keyboard shortcut to remember.
