Organized is a new widget from iSlayer, featuring a calendar with events, world clocks, notes and to do's. The calendar and to do's utilise OS X's inbuilt databases, so they're always in sync with iCal and Mail.

Please download the beta and let us know what you think. As usual, Organized will be a free download from iSlayer.com. Thanks in advance for any help getting this tested and ready for release.

Yes Very Nice.

One suggestion. Make the clocks selected in iStatMenus appear in Organised by default.

(Shouldn't have the hassle of selecting my preferred clocks all over again, IMHO.)

Not possible unfortunately. The 2 have a different list of clocks(Organized has alot more)

Does it come with a selection of fashionable colour schemes. or just the boring black n blue.

Anyway, with ical open 24/7, I hardly see a need for this personally.

I presume this requires Leopard, yes? I've installed it on my work machine running Tiger and all I get is the shell, without any data being populated (see pic).

Oh well.

Pity about having to use the American spelling.

Thanks. Much easier to check things quickly and dont have to set up alerts now.

sorry - I may have missed something:

does this only work in 10.5?

Awesome... works very well and seamlessly.

Thanks guys!

I think CalendarStore was new in 10.5 so that would explain the breakage.

iSlayer
27th June 2008, 02:50 PM
Yep its 10.5 only

Great to see developers taking advantage of new OS X 10.5 features. That's what they are there for!

Very slick widget!

Gosh that is a shame - that was just the sort of thing that I was looking for last week - to work in 10.4!

It looks great!

Would be awesome if this was made to be a standalone "HUD" type app... alas, Dashboard'll have to do.

Mmmmm, nice.
I don't use iCal (I should!), but my partner does and she loves this widget. A-grade work as usual gents!

Great as usual.

I use iCal at work so it will be nice to have an instant look at what's on for the next couple of days.

I like how you can turn off Marker Felt. I wish you could do that on the iPhone. It doesn't really matter but when you turn off Marker Felt it would be nice if the notes went to light blue like the rest of the widget. So you can keep standard ugly Apple notes or switch to nice, integrated notes.

I also like how you've put the date in the world clock instead of saying today or yesterday. It would be nice to see a day included as well. So it is Cupertino Thursday 26th June. Just because there's room.

To do's are nice too. I've used menu bar to do apps that do to do's before and stopped using them after a while. See how I go with this.

Again, great work as usual.

Yep. And the iPhone complaints were exactly why we put that feature in :)

Yeah, we need to rework the clocks a little. Thanks for the suggestion.

Any bug reports?

Fantastic work guys.
Only feedback I would give is maybe a preference for different colour (or is it color?) schemes...that would be nice.

Thanks,
Ricky.

I only played with it for 5 min but no bugs as far as I could tell. Will see over the coming week as I work with it.

A date on the To Dos would be handy.

edit: Great widget by the way.

Looks great!!!!
Love the fact that several of the overseas cities I regularly visit (regional) are there!!!!

Oh the little options wheel and twistie next where you enter new cities names (on the back in Clocks tab) doesn't work?

looks fantastic, great job..

It's great, thanks! Suggestions: it would be useful for me to be able to add an item (a note or a todo) by double clicking on the next available line. Also, an option to delete without confirmation (via the icon and also by the delete key) would be good.

We have our own db. It looks like we have missed Canberra. We'll sort that out before release.

I wondered the same thing when I tried Canberra... and presumed it was the Apple OS X list...
but then Dili, Honiara, and a few other capital cities were in there - that OS X and other widget never found... made me wonder too!

marc
28th June 2008, 11:03 PM
The OS X list wasn't big enough, so we have our own :)

We've released the widget. Thanks for the help testing.

Please note: The release version of Organized uses a different file name to save the notes. If you'd like to keep the notes you've entered into Organized then rename this file:

~/Library/Application Support/Organiser/organiser.plist

to

~/Library/Application Support/Organized/organized.plist
(Note the folder change too.)
