It seems like they keep going back and forth with Parallels and Fusion with these bundles. Not a bad deal if you want one, but then there isn't much else exciting left behind them. I have read some good things about Busycal though.

Likewise, I have heard good things about busycal. Anyone have any experience with it? What's better about it than iCal alone?

No faux leather. Smile

I have been a Busycal user for about 3-4 months. The ease of setup and syncing with Google Calendars is what initially drew me to the application. It hasn't let me down either. Busycal also has a handy list view so you can all your events on one screen. I don't think iCal allows you do that. It's just very well thought out. They kinda out Appled Apple with this application.

I've also read many positive reviews about BusyCal. I just think that iCal might get stronger with Mountain Lion. At least when in comes to integrating with the Notification Center. Now I'm wondering if third-party apps will share this same support? If so, this might be a good time to switch. Because BusyCal looks and sounds far more compelling. I also happen to think the UI looks much cleaner.

Bought one for Parallels and Busycal. The rest is just a bonus. Even though I probably won't use them.

Tempted, but I know that Parallels is due for an update when Mountain Lion comes out and their upgrade costs are not always all that affordable, so I'm hesitant. Sadly not one of the other apps is tempting.

But it already basically supports Mountain Lion and Windows 8. I honestly don't see a major update coming until the later is released. I do agree with you though. It's something to think about.

I'm sort of thinking about grabbing one for Busycal and Parallels, but I'm on the fence for now. Who knows, maybe they will sweeten the deal with CS6 or something at the end. Wink
