Use Coverflow to Search iCal Events

Geek Tip: Use Cover Flow to Search iCal Appointments

Sugar HQ is now using iCal more than ever, so it's totally out of selfishness that I bring you today's tip. Instead of starting up iCal to view your appointments, you can use Cover Flow! Cover Flow is one of my favorite ways to browse music and photos and search for files. Mostly 'cause I just like the sleek scrolly-ness of it.

A great tip I found on Tekzilla suggests typing "kind:ical" (without quotation marks) into Spotlight, then click "show all." You'll then get a popup Finder window that will list all your iCal events. From there, it's as easy as clicking "Cover Flow" (or the Cover Flow icon) at the top of the nav bar, and you're all set. It's super fast, and I won't have to wait for my events to load every time I open iCal. Sweet.

Interesting. Maybe I'm missing something though as I don't seem to have an option to show it in correct date order and there isn't a year attached. I can't seem to tell if it is my March of 09 or my March of 03 events. Maybe I've just used iCal for too long for this to be helpful for me :-/
