Readdle’s great Calendar application is now on the MacOS

The Readdle Calendars app, that combines projects, to-dos, and reminders, is now available for Macos. Readdle is well known for its PDF and document productivity apps for iOS (via 9to5Mac). It joins the company's line of Mac applications, which also include PDF Expert and Spark email, and is officially titled Calendars by Readdle.

Fans of the Calendars by Readdle application will be glad to learn that the Mac version of the app syncs with the versions for the iPhone and iPad, and that cross-device access is included in the $19.99/year Pro subscription fee. You can use the app's primary calendar for free, but you won't have access to the weekly planner feature, meeting room booking, weather, and other features that will allow for integration with other applications like Google Tasks and Apple's Reminders. It's also quite useful in setting up to start Zoom meetings and other videoconferencing.

Fantastical, which also has Mac, iPad, and iPhone apps, is a comparable app but is twice the price as Readdle at about $40 per year. Natural language parsing is a feature in both apps that allows you to type something like "breakfast with Pavan at 12 tomorrow at Hidden Grounds," which is turned into a calendar item. Although Calendars by Readdle needs macOS 11.0 Big Sur or more recent, Fantastical does work on older Macs running macOS 10.13.2 High Sierra. This year, Fantastical also launched a more company scheduling feature that can help you find a session with someone even if they don't use the app.

The Mac App Store offers a free trial of Calendars by Readdle. However, the business offers a seven-day free trial of the Pro version, which allows you to use all the features of the software, including joining multiple accounts to combine your iCloud, Google, and Exchange calendars and tasks.
