Cron for Windows

The Cron app for Windows (download link) brings next-generation calendaring to Windows desktops! We made no compromises, and Cron tightly integrates with the system:

  • System tray calendar displaying upcoming events.
  • Upcoming meeting notifications with join conferencing button.
  • Global keyboard shortcuts to open the system tray calendar and to join conferencing.
  • Native event reminder notifications.
  • Light and dark modes corresponding to the system setting.

On top of that, all core features from Cron for macOS are now available on Windows. You can log in with your existing Cron user account. Press ? to explore Windows-specific keyboard shortcuts. Note that support for Microsoft Outlook calendar accounts will ship separately later. We’re excited to hear your feedback on Cron for Windows.

Cron as Mac Homebrew Cask

For people that install their macOS apps with Homebrew Cask, there is now a cask for Cron:

> brew install --cask cron
