My favourite app duo; BusyCal because it retained my preferred way of working and layout that Apple itself moved away from, BusyContacts because it gives me better integration between contacts sources and the mail activity for each contact. I no longer use the Apple originals, except when it cannot be avoided in rare occasions.
