  • Popular Mac app 'Bartender' acquired by new unknown developer
    I think Dato can do this: - Source: Hacker News / about 1 month ago
  • Tools that keep me productive
    For managing meetings, Dato is a better date app for macOS. It's great for having multiple time zones in the address bar. I have my local time as well as UTC. I also use it for upcoming meetings and events. Previously I was using Meeter which is great for this, but it's one less app I need now. - Source: / 2 months ago
  • How I stay (more) focused with ADHD
    Dato is a calendar app that gives me quick access to my calendar from the menu bar. My favorite feature is that it shows upcoming calls in the menu bar. And there’s a global shortcut to open this link in your default browser. - Source: / 5 months ago
  • Notion Calendar
    Weird question, but it seems similar to me; do you know how it compares to Dato? - Source: Hacker News / 6 months ago
  • Today — Today’s schedule in your menu bar
    I made this companion to the built-in Calendar app for people who want to be able to quickly check their upcoming schedule without having to open the Calendar app. It also lets you quickly join video calls. I'm the creator of the Dato calendar app, which is quite large in scope. This app was a personal challenge to create the simplest calendar app possible. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Is there a calendar app widget that shows multiple months?
    My Dato app has a widget to show the current month and the next month or the next three. Screenshot. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Im missing or late to all my meetings with Mac default alerts! - Desperate for a better alert
    Thanks for the suggestion! This app was reccomended here as well, and its just right for me - full screen loud alerts and many additional features Https:// Source: over 1 year ago
  • Im missing or late to all my meetings with Mac default alerts! - Desperate for a better alert
    Https:// This is what works for me, suggested by someone on this thread. One time payment, and WAY more features than the other one. Source: over 1 year ago
  • App LIST!!!
    Dato (Paid) Calendar events and world clocks in your menu bar. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Calendar with tooltips
    If you're ok with just a list of events, you may find my Dato app useful. It shows event details when you move your mouse over events. There's a trial available if you want to try it out. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Today’s schedule in your menu bar
    I unfortunately don't plan to add keyboard shortcuts. I want to keep this app simple. My other more powerful calendar app does have this though. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Today’s schedule in your menu bar
    Hey, I'm the creator. I made this app as a personal challenge to create the simplest calendar app possible. I already maintain a fairly well-known and feature-rich calendar app called Dato. This is the complete opposite of Dato. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Ask HN: What are some excellent pieces of software written by a single person?
    I've been amazed almost every single day since I installed it few months ago by how useful and well done Dato on macOS is. It fixes one of my main issue with macOS, its inability to show a calendar by clicking on the day in status bar, and adds tons of great feature without feeling bloaty. Great great job. Thank you Sindre Sorhus for making my life easier ! - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • What are some of the most overrated Mac apps?
    If you're looking for an alternative without a subscription, check out my Dato app in combination with the built-in Calendar app. There's a fully functional trial available here. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Best macOS apps for boosted productivity
    Dato - Replacement clock for the menubar. - Source: / about 2 years ago
  • Productivity Tools I Use
    Dato - A better date app for MacOS. I also love that you can have clocks for different timezones. I have a UTC clock which is super helpful when working on a remote team with colleagues all over the planet. - Source: / over 2 years ago
  • List of my favorite (20+) MacBook apps to download (in my opinion)
    If anyone is looking for a replacement for Fantastical, try out the system Calendar app in combination with my Dato app (one-time payment, will never be subscription). Source: over 2 years ago
  • Recommendations for native WorldTimeBuddy alternative?
    Check Just not sure if it allows easily copying the time text. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Will the M1 MBA 2020 improve my productivity? (Switching over from Windows)
    The utility app ecosystem is just way, way better. Apps like Dato, Kap, Disk Drill, and Flotato may have analogues on Windows, but in my experience they're almost always a hundred times better on Mac. The community really just is better. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • QUESTION: Is there an app to show upcoming calendar events in a mini (narrow) window?
    I love, it will show you upcoming calendar events in a menu from your menu bar. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Windows 11 on M1 MacBook Air using Parallels Desktop
    There was this app Dato that did this. It still works but since Big Sur you can’t remove the system time from the menu bar, so this app isn’t really useful unless you’re ok with 2 times in the menu bar. It might be ok if the system time is the analog clock so it takes up less space, perhaps. Source: about 3 years ago
