InstaCal via Setapp

Simplify calendar management

Instacal is an unobtrusive, convenient calendar app that’s always a click away. Instead of opening a big app window, it pops up as a small panel, giving you a calendar view and selected highlights from the month ahead. It can handle all the scheduling and reminders that other calendars provide and even sync with Google and Outlook calendars. The app packs everything the competition does into a smaller, more streamlined package. Try it and see what you’ve been missing.

InstaCal features

Full scheduling support

Instacal lets you lay out your whole week or month in calendar view. Its minimal display is backed up by intricate scheduling windows that let you assign times and dates, schedule email alerts, and even send invitations. Plus, it lists your upcoming events when you open the app so you’re never surprised by a meeting or appointment.

Calendar sync

It’s common for people to have their working and personal schedules spread across several different calendars, sometimes from different providers. The app makes it easy to consolidate your calendars, syncing easily with Microsoft Office, Google Calendar, and iCal. This sync even lets you respond to invitations from any calendar in the InstaCal window.

Menu bar integration

Rather than taking up a whole window, the app sits in the menu bar, meaning that you don’t have to close or cover your active window to see your calendar. What’s more, it doesn’t even have to have a standalone icon — instead, the system time and date stamp at the top right corner can serve as the app icon. Out of sight, out of mind, until you need it.


Organization is key to managing your schedule, and InstaCal can help you do just that. Its customizable calendar display, which supports color-coded reminders and events, helps you stay on top of your commitments. The range, layout, and appearance of the app window can all be customized as well.

Sometimes life can sneak up on you

But with InstaCal’s alerts, notifications, and reminders, it’ll have a harder time. This is what you never knew your menu bar needed.
