A free collection of various utilities, Calendar Magic allows you to perform actions that are related to calendars and time-keeping in general. While the software does come with over 60 features, it is not meant to be used as a day-to-day calendaring solution, being more like a Swiss Army knife of many unrelated utilities.
Multiple calendar formats: Calendar Magic comes packed with over 30 calendars, including religious, national, and even historical ones like the French Revolutionary Calendar. In addition to viewing them, you can also compare them side-by-side.
Date and time calculators: You can add and subtract days, weeks, months, and years from a given date and view the results immediately. The same option is available for time calculations involving days, hours, minutes, and seconds.
Multitude of other options: There’s no shortage of features when it comes to this application. You’ll find more than 60 distinct options that range from utilities telling you when you would reach your 10,000th day alive, to taking notes and creating reminders, to using a world clock, to doing completely unrelated tasks like using a scientific calculator.
Basic interface: Although the interface is straightforward, it is also very basic, displaying nearly all output as words in a large text box, rather than graphical objects. On the bright side, the text is usually well formatted, so the app is quite usable.
Poor reminders implementation: Adding reminders is a very convoluted process. Additionally, there is no way for reminders to display alerts on your desktop or in any other manner.
Despite its name, Calendar Magic should not be used as a time management solution due to its very limited capabilities in this regard. Its main use is to find answers to any time and date questions you might have. If you take the time to study the “Math Utilities” and “Other Utilities” menus, you will find other uses for it as well, although these can be replaced in most cases with a quick Google search.
