BusyCal 2.5.1

Send Article to a Friend

After adding support for Microsoft Exchange in its last release (see “BusyCal 2.5,” 19 August 2013), BusyMac has tidied up a few things with the release of BusyCal 2.5.1. The update fixes issues with time zones when syncing with Exchange, as well as various unspecified “edge-case” bugs related to Exchange. It also fixes crashes involving the Availability Panel, random calendar color changes when syncing with iCloud, and HTTP 400 errors when syncing with CalDAV Server. BusyCal 2.5 is available as a free 30-day trial from the BusyMac Web site, but the only way to purchase the app is through the Mac App Store. ($29.99 new, free update, 9.9 MB, release notes)

Check out the Take Control ebooks that expand on the topic in this article:

Download this free ebook by Joe Kissell to learn how calendar servers and clients work, when to use iCloud or Google Calendar for syncing and sharing, and how to construct a sensible calendar strategy for BusyCal 2 on your Mac, even if you or others also use other calendar apps.
