PandoCalendar Makes Its Way To OS X

Panda Systems has released an OS X version of their desktop calendar applicaton, PandoCalendar. The OS X version of the popular applications allows users to add a highly customizable, very useful calendar appliction to their desktop. While the new version is Carbonized, it will currently only run under OS X Beta, and will not run on OS 9 until Apple updated the CarbonLib package. According to Panda Systems:

Panda Systems is pleased to announce the availability of PandoCalendar version 5.6b1 for MacOS X Public Beta.

This beta is only supported on MacOS X Public Beta. Support for Classic MacOS 8.6 - 9.x will be added when Apple Computer releases CarbonLib 1.1 or greater to the public.

Other new features in this version:

  • PandoCalendar has a new 128x128 32bit icon.
  • A Windows menu has been added.
  • You can now have multiple Daily Information Windows open at once.
  • Reminders can now play MP3s, MP2s, the audio track of QuickTime Movies, AIFF files, and Windows Wav files.
  • The Frames folder can now be kept in the same folder as the PandoCalendar application.

This useful Mac-only program places a fully functional calendar on your desktop. The look is completely customizable. You can change the calendar font and its size, and the calendaris background color; you can center the current week (so you are always able to look back and ahead a full month at a time), display the numerical number of the weeks of the year, display the calendar with European style weeks (Monday being the first day and Sunday being the last), assign notes to any day of the year by clicking on the day in the calendar, and set alarms to remind you of time sensitive events. You can also have PandoCalendar automatically plot the days you work. Great for people who donit have a Monday-Friday work schedule!

PandoCalendar is available for free. You can find more information at the Panda Systems web site.
