TimeWorks displays your calendar events dynamically moving towards a finish line which is ‘now’.
It can do this on the desktop, in a window, or over your screen-saver.


A license for TimeWorks costs US$9.99.

It is available for purchase on the Mac App Store.

It is also available as a 30-day trial, after which it will ask you to buy a license to continue using it.

The aim is to display a user’s calendar events in a pleasing, compelling, and useful fashion.


  • You set how far you want to see into the future.
  • Events are displayed in a window on the desktop, over the screen saver.
  • An exposé hotkey brings the display quickly into view when you need it.
  • Better than watching grass grow, but only marginally!

How it works

You set how far you want to see into the future and events will appear on the display and move slowly across the window or desktop towards the now mark.

Look at the yellow lines on the left of the screen shots. They show now on the display. That is, if an event was touching that line, it would be happening now.

The events start at the opposite edge of the display and move towards and past this line.

Look at it another way: in the preferences, you can specify how far to look ahead (say one week). This means that all events for the coming week will be visible in the display. The events which are due to start soon (e.g. within an hour) will be close to the line. Those due to start later (e.g. in 6 days’ time) will be further away from the line.


Whether you have one or a hundred windows on the screen, chances are that it will cover up the part of the iCalViewer view you want to see - whether it is the desktop, window or list view. With Exposé, you can reveal your desktop with the ‘reveal desktop’ hotkey.

This operation will bring whatever view you have to the front and shade the rest of the screen. It provides a convenient and fast way of accessing your calendar information.
