Does Fantastical support MobileMe accounts? When they add that then I'm sold.

Fantastical supports CalDAV and will pull in your MobileMe credentials automatically so it can sync with your MobileMe account without iCal being open.

Fantastical also augments iCal, so it can support any calendar that iCal supports (though it won't sync calendars other than CalDAV calendars when iCal is closed).

Yeah, I actually decided to try it out as I couldn't find a definitive answer and it's awesome.

NoteTote is incredibly useful.


If I have a FileServe account, would it download files?

An app called Fantastical (MAS link) was just released, and it's one of the best augments I've ever seen to iCal/Outlook/Entourage.

I know iCal will have some natural language parsing in Lion, but the natural language parsing engine in Fantastical is absolutely incredible (e.g. it perfectly parses something like "Lunch at 1pm with Bob at Panera", even allowing you to invite Bob to the event). It also comes with Services and AppleScript support for good measure, and plays nicely with my new app-launcher of choice, Alfred (by using Alfred's shell script abilities).

Oh, and it looks great too. :p

Looks nice, I'd like to try it out. I'm currently using CalandarBar and all it does is show the dates of things coming up for the month.

Try it out, there's a trial on the website.

I'm deployed and would get to frustrated with the wife trying to teach her how to install it and work it while over skype. So, if I knew for sure then I'd be willing to do it.

It's not on the first post and I don't know if it's been mention in the 19 pages that followed, but TCPBlock is a nice free alternative to Little Snitch.

Unlike LS, it doesn't prompt you when an app is trying to connect, which means you might not catch rogue apps calling out unless you're viewing the list of connecting apps in the prefpane. However, the flipside of this approach is you don't get the amount of popups asking what to do when an app does try to connect.

Almost ended up buying Fantastical until I discovered Calendar in OS X being able to do the exact same thing, not to mention in Dutch too.

Just wondering if you know if you can put iCal in the menu bar at the top which opens iCal or something?

Just wanted to post some goodies that I found over the past two months since using OSX for the first time (may or may not already be in the OP list):

gfxcardstatus - growl notifications when graphics switches from integrated to dedicated graphics, and allows you to set integrated-only, dedicated-only, or dynamic switching when plugged in and on battery. (free)
gruml - basically a google reader for the desktop with status bar icon (free)
iprocrastinate - does pretty much everything most to-do lists can do, but this takes it one step further by allowing you to easily add mini-tasks within a larger task (free)
kitabu - ebook reader that has does the basics, key feature of interest is the dark mode for reading at night, something I have been struggling to find in the limited number of other ereaders for osx (free)
mindnode lite/pro - simple app that allows making of easy organization web charts without opening a word processor (lite = free)
tweetbot for mac - perhaps the most complete twitter client that I have used, slick UI, beats the official twitter app by miles, allows viewing multiple lists in separate snapable windows (free until official release)

I cannot begin to recommend Fantastical enough. The iOS and Mac apps are both amazing and I use them daily. The perfect organisational apps.

I'm looking for a good duplicate finding program, so I can clean up my HD's, and also what is a good file renamer? I use to use Tag&Rename on Windows and looking for something that is just as good as that one.


I use Gemini for duplicates. It's 100% perfect in my opinion.

I have come across two great apps, both are paid for, and not available on the App Store - one is a replacement for iPhoto which I loath, it's called Lyn - if you've ever used linux there's a great picture manager called gThumb - it's very similar to it, and the second is a Blu-Ray Player for OS X, there is also a free version of the player which has everything except the Blu-Ray and it's called Mac Media Player - if you're after an alternative to VLC et al, it's worth giving it a go. Also both programs can search for and install updates. They're very good.

http://www.macbluray...edia-player.htm - for the paid for Blu-Ray Player and the free Multimedia Player

OpenEmu is awesome.  Very accessible emulator for Mac OS X that has an "iTunes like interface."
