iCal Duplicates

I use the plain and simple iCal program on my Mac to keep track of private events. So far so good. To have my events with me, I sync the calendar with my iPhone, which – at least in theory – works as simple as activating a checkbox in iTunes and simply syncing the phone.

I don’t know why, but iCal is a pretty stupid program and doesn’t recognize duplicate entries at all. When syncing calendars it often happens that afterwards you’ll see lots of duplicates entries and it’s pretty annoying to remove them manually.

Today I found a pretty nice little program called iCal Dupe Deleter which allows to delete such duplicates with a simple click. I tried it out and it works like a charm, so I can absolutely recommend it. You can download it from http://www.nhoj.co.uk/icaldupedeleter for free (“donationware”). I tried it out on OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard).
