iCal calendar on your desktop

iCalendar or iCal format for calendar data exchange was initially developed for use under Apple Macintosh operating system, and you can find tons of info how to show iCal on Mac desktop. Nevertheless, iCal calendar can be displayed on Windows desktop as well and there are short reviews of Windows desktop calendar tools that support iCalendars. They let you exchange iCal data between iPhone, iPod, Google Calendar or other web apps and your PC.

Calendar making tool – create nice calendar grids

Whether you are a professional designer or you just want to make a calendar for yourself, you need a neat tool to make a calendar exactly to your liking. I prefer Calendar Wizard – an easy-to-use software for creating calendar grids.

Professionals will be interested in a variety of available plug-ins : Corel Draw, MS Excel, JPEG, BMP, Adobe PDF, HTML, TXT etc

Ordinary users will like features of applying any color scheme and marking any event on a calendar.

There’s a possibility to create calendars both for a month or for a year, make the months alignment variable, choose the type of a month’s representation and create multi-lingual calendars.

You can try to make own calendar free or read a full review at the developer’s website.
