It turns out that High Priority is not the only iCal menubar utility on the block.
MenuCalendarClock is another menubar app for iCal that gives you access to your iCal events and ToDos from the menubar.
Clicking its menubar icon drops down a display containing a calendar view of the current month, the events for the day and a list of your ToDos.
The display of events and ToDos can be toggled on and off.
Its preferences allow you to control a configurable menubar clock replacement and to set the colour of the window.
Further options determine how the events and ToDos are displayed.
It will also display the Calendar week numbers and offers an autohide option.
There is also a “Tool tip” option that presents a text-only version of the display when you hover your mouse over the icon.
Unlike High Priority, it offers no interaction with your ToDos, which cannot be marked completed or edited from the app’s window.
All these features can be enjoyed for free.
A registered version (USD 18.95) offers further features like the ability to sync birthdays from AddressBook into iCal and to configure a hotkey.
The fully registered version also displays iCal events.
MenuCalendarClock is available from the developer’s web site .
