BusyCal 2.6.7 and BusyContacts 1.0.6
BusyMac has released BusyCal 2.6.7 and BusyContacts 1.0.6 with both the calendar app and contact manager receiving compatibility with OS X 10.11 El Capitan and support for sending email messages in AirMail 2.5. BusyCal 2.6.7 also fixes a couple of crashes, addresses two Exchange bugs, displays the default font size in the Notes field when using date stamp, and stores backups in the BusyCal Container if no backup folder is selected. BusyContacts 1.0.6 resolves an issue where photos added in BusyContacts could exceed iCloud’s maximum size, fixes a bug in the Activity List when displaying or opening MailMate messages, and sorts out an issue
with the Duplicate Card menu becoming disabled after an edit. As usual, updates to the Mac App Store versions aren’t yet available. (BusyCal is $49.99 new from BusyMac or the Mac App Store, 10.2 MB, release notes, 10.9+; BusyContacts is $49.99 new from BusyMac or the Mac App Store, 5.4 MB, release notes, 10.9+; free updates)
These are the go-to Calendar and Contacts apps for me.
iCal at one time had the right interface appeal and functionality mix for me, but it moved away from that and now strikes me as alien. BusyCal recreates for me that golden formula iCal once had.
Busy Contacts adds great functionality to a mere contacts program, really nice!
