BusyCal 2022.1.1 and BusyContacts 1.6.4

BusyMac has released BusyCal 2022.1.1 and BusyContacts 1.6.4 with added support for iCloud’s CardDAV servers in China. BusyCal also now enables you to add Google Meet and GoTo (LogMeIn) conference calls to events, enhances the mini-month view, enables you to batch assign default alarms (or remove existing alarms), brings back multiple timezone support for Google accounts, ensures that the menu bar app refreshes properly, and resolves an issue with Microsoft Teams conference call detection in notes.

BusyContacts improves handling of an iCloud error that would prevent sync from completing, resolves an issue where group name changes from Fastmail would not sync, and fixes a bug that prevented profile photos from updating in iCloud. ($49.99 new for BusyCal from BusyMac or the Mac App Store, free update, in Setapp, 53.1 MB, release notes, macOS 10.12+; $49.99 new for BusyContacts from BusyMac or the Mac App Store, free update, in Setapp, 23 MB, release notes, macOS 10.12+)

Comments About BusyCal 2022.1.1 and BusyContacts 1.6.4

  1. This has been my favorite calendar app for years. Why doesn’t everyone else like it, too? I think it better than other supposedly fantastic apps, but the BusyCal dudes never get any love.

  2. Often wondered that myself. I’ve used it for work and personal since it first came out many years ago. One must have feature for me that iCal and some others didn’t/don’t have is the ability to carry forward uncompleted tasks, which I came to really depend on for my work. Syncs with iCloud and its iOS version fine, never had a problem that wasn’t my own doing.

  3. Glad you’re enjoying it, Laurence!

  4. BCal & BCon got lots of love from me until some stuff got broken a couple of iterations back and I went back to Apple. I just downloaded the new trial version & (after navigating app-specific passwords and mail plug-ins) all is well and I will re-up! Thanks for the reminder.
