Semi-transparent background calendar right on desktop wallpaper. Agendas/events/reminders at a glance. Real-time update. Customizable.
WallCal is a desktop calendar that always stays on the desktop wallpaper. A keystroke or mouse click can bring it to the frontmost, and with another keystroke or click it will return to the background. Instantly see and recall what your calendar/agenda/todo-list currently be as soon as you go back to the desktop wallpaper!
These features below are available free of charge:
・An always-on desktop background calendar displaying all events/reminders of the current month on your desktop. Since it displays your current macOS/iCloud calendars, you don't have to create anything new, just continue using your existing macOS/iCloud calendars as you always do.
・Bring the calendar to frontmost state on demand by a keystroke/mouse click, and another keystroke/mouse click to bring it back to the desktop background.
With the Expert calendar add-on, these features below will be available for use:
・You can choose to display the weekly agenda view which shows all the calendar events in the next 7 days on a 24-hour timeline, instead of displaying the whole month. You can also specify the number of days displayed, as well as the visible time range for the weekly agenda view.
・Resize/reposition by dragging & dropping the calendar view while it’s in the frontmost state
・You can choose to display only the calendar event view, the reminder & to-do list view, or both.
・You can choose which calendar event sets or reminder sets to be displayed. By default, all calendar event/reminder sets will be displayed.
・You can customize your calendar background-color
DISCLAIMER: This app doesn't provide any means to add new events/reminders, nor does it provide any way to edit existing events/reminders. Please use Apple's stock Calendar/Reminder app, or any other 3rd party apps that support adding/editing events/reminders to manipulate calendar events and reminders.

Ratings and Reviews
I purchased this within minutes of first opening your app. It is fantastic tool that I use every time I'm on my Mac (which is a lot). There were a few things that I would love to see in a future release.
The option to put the date inside of the square in the big calendar (right panel). This will help identify events more easily at a glance.
An option to control the transparency of the color of All-Day events in the right panel
This one is wishful thinking: Option to vertically display Last Month, This Month, Next Month, and The Month after Next in the left panel with the ability to fade the mini-Months out of view and bring the To-do-list into view via a shortcut key combo. Tripple click on the one of the mini-Months in the left panel would make the big calendar in the right panel reflect the mini-Month that was clicked.

Thank you very much for purchasing WallCal! 🥳 we've received other suggestions about tweaking color and transparency option of events too, and we'll work on it in the subsequent updates! We plan to add more shortcuts and actions for our users to navigate more easily too. If you have further suggestions, we always listen, so please don't hesitate to mail us at email@example.com any time!
Intresting Concept, Very Poor Execution
I liked the concept upon first install; but it looked horrible visually. So I paid the fee to unlock the customization option, but only to be disappointed.
Frankly its not work $12 in the current state. The is basically no customization options other than changing the Bg color behind the weekdays vs weekend rows/columns.
No option to remove the horrible outlines around the dates, or adjust thier thickness, color, or anything. No option to adjust the text/font color, size, etc. No option to remove the To-do list or substitue it for something more useful like a daily overview of events. No options to remove the horrible bold style on the top left calendar. There is no option to adjust tile gaps either.. the Bg color options just add a large box behind the area, instead of letting you set the space with the events to a different color than the row with the dates..
When you delete a reminder from a to-do list, the one on WallCal is broken, and only dims it out doesn't actually delete it. So I have my "Reminders" list overlayed on top of a "Shopping" list that I deleted.
Why not seperate the left panel from the main calendar, so they can be positioned seperatly.
Some of these reviews seem a bit sketch after actually using the app, and paying to unlock a few useless features..
Hopefully this app updates to include some of the functions I mentioned before, but until then I'll just be uninstalling it.
Update: I love it!
A few things that would improve it even more for me
1) there seems to be a weird ghosting effect that happens when the days switch over. I'm not sure what causes it but it disappers when i quit the app and reopen it. Still, it would be nice to have it fixed.
2) I know this one is unreasonable but it would be great if wallcal could intergrate with todoist, it's an amazing todo list app that I use but I understand that would be difficult and also maybe not broadly useful

Thank you Elly for choosing WallCal! 🙌 We're glad you found this app useful 🥳 about the weekly view, we're already working on it! ETA is still unknown at the moment, but we'll try our best to deliver the feature to you ASAP! 💪 About 3rd party to-do list integrations, since different services have their own different way of access control, currently we still can't answer whether implementing integration is possible or not, but we'll look into it and hopefully be able to provide a possible workaround in the worst case 🙏 Once again, thank you very much for choosing WallCal, we look forward to your continuing support in the future! 🥰
