Key features still missing and frequently buggy

I use this app every day on my laptop just so I can have an easy command-tab access to my calendar. This app frequently fails to save my changes, however, and there are certain features that have just never worked.

The number one feature I would request that they fix immediately would be that hyperlinks in the event notes actually function. At this point if I want to open a link that has been dropped into the notes of a calendar event, I have to open my calendar from a browser to do so. How is this not a priority feature?

EXCELLENT Google Calendar Application

I have been using this application for years and have no idea why it has so many negative reviews. Earlier it was not perfect and did have some glitches, but the new update is amazing and is exactly what any heavy-duty Google calednar user would want.

It works exactly like Google calendar online and also has nice native macOS keyboard shortcut features. I have had no issues with links and creating new events. Making new events is easy; it is just like the web version of Google calendar.

RAM is usage heavy compared to other native applications (roughly as much as a Chrome plugin), but still reasonable.

Dark mode is good but there's too much 'glow' at times and the text for scheduled events do not have enough of a contrast with background colors. Would be nicer if the dark theme took a more modern and 'flat' approach, but is still a fine theme.

I would use this over other GCal calendar applications such as Woven, and this is superior to Apple's built-in caledar if you're a Google Calendar user.

Overall, excellent application and amazing update!

No what I expected

I downloaded this app thinking I'll be able to sinc all my Google Accounts Calendars in one place like iCal, but it's only letting me see one calendar at the time. I tried to contact support before writing this review in case it's me doing something wrong, but when I click the support link it takes me to a blank website and says is "not secure". I would like to request a refund please. Thanks.
