Is there any client for OS X that works with Google Calendar and makes it more usable?

You could try Fantastical: http://flexibits.com/fantastical

or use iCal with CalDAV and Google Calendar: http://www.google.com/support/calendar/bin/answer.py?answer=99358#ical

Fantastical doesn't do anything without iCal being set up. Technically it's just an interface to iCal -- if you need to edit appointments or what not it punts you to iCal to do all of that. That being said: it is an awesome way to create appointments and see your iCal calendars at a glance. –  Ian C. Jun 16 '11 at 14:49

You can enable access to Google Calendar in iCal, which seems to work well:


Hopefully this will get you what you're looking for.

Last time I checked, iCal with Google Calendar on CalDAV can get pretty ugly if you have multiple calendars. I vouch for two of BusyMac Software's products: BusySync is a tool to sync iCal with Google Calendar much more cleanly, and BusyCal is an iCal clone with a bunch of extra useful features (I'd call it iCal Pro) and native Google Calendar syncing.

iCal with Google Calendar on CalDAV actually works pretty fine, only sometimes you have to move some events twice in iCal. Any other issues? –  slhck Jun 17 '11 at 12:41

I just use the Google Calendar web app in a Fluid window. I realize this isn't a native client, but I've tried iCal, BusyCal, and Fantastical, and non of these had a more usable and faster (i.e. keyboard shortcuts) interface than the Google Calendar web site.
