After six weeks in beta
(not long at all in Google-weeks), the new version 2.0 of iCal-sharing tool BusySync
is out. The headline feature for 2.0 is of course the new iCal --> Google Calendar
synchronization capability, which opens up a wide world of cloud-based options for families and workgroups already using the LAN-based sync of earlier versions. You can keep multiple iCal users synchronized (even on the same machine), sync remotely via Google, and more.
There are plenty other options
your calendars with gCal, but if you need to keep more than one user's iCal coordinated (think family schedules!) then BusySync may be the product for you, starting at $25 per seat. The guys behind BusySync have a long history with Mac calendaring
(including creating the
great Now Up-to-Date
, which actually saw its first update in over a year
last week) and I've been impressed with the quality of the beta release. We'll do a head-to-head comparison of the iCal sync options soon.
