Handy access to see and add to Calendars

Menbar Calendar has a lot of helpful capabilities: without opening Calendar, from the menubar I can see a calendar for this month (and with a little mouse work some months on either side), I can add events to any of my calendar accounts, and I can see my next 10 events across all my calendar accounts. On a 13.3" MacBook Air I appreciate having as few windows open as possible, and so it is nice to be able to do without having Calendar open. Moreover, I appreciate the fact that Menubar Calendar has a very small CPU footprint on my is as efficient with my computing power (and battery power) as it is with my wallet. It also has a pleasant and polished look. Finally, the developer is extremely responsive: I wrote to ask for two extensions to its features, and in under 30 hours the developer had a new version in the App Store with those additions.

Handy little app

So when this loads, a splash screen opens to give you a chance to read a short readme file and then goes on to install the app. Click on the app in the menubar and you see it like the screenshots like the ones above.
The only thing I don’t like is that I can’t move the icon to the far right. This maybe controlled by Apple, so I didn’t take any stars off.
I’d like to have weather pop up too, but you can’t have everything.

I bought this to replace Calendar 2 (which I loved) but after Qbix put in a bot to grind away for cryptocurrency, I bailed from it and came to menu calendar.

We are thankful to you for your rating and feedback.In order to move the icon to far right, please click and hold the "Cmd" button.After this, please click and hold the date time that is being displayed by the application.Now, drag it to to rightmost side.The application's icon could be moved till before the Notification icon of the Apple.
The notification icon of Apple will remain at the last position in the Menubar.The applications icon could be brought right before this notification icon.
In case of any issue, please write to us on We will be glad to assist.
We have also forwarded your suggestion of adding weather to the development team.

Very Responsive Support Team!

Within a day or so of writing my initial email to the Menubar Calendar Support Team, I received a reply and news that some of my suggestions would be considered. In a couple days, not only had the Team ressponded, but they also had implemented my suggestions of adjusting the fonts sizes & colors and made the date/time display format adjustable to suit almost anyone's obssesive-compulsive needs!
