More than a calendar

Get organized with this program's familiar calendar features, but also go a step further with more desktop options.

Most calendar software is designed to help you get organized. All-In-One Desktop Calendar aims to go a step further by organizing and replacing your computer's desktop. While this is certainly a unique approach, we were left wondering if it's really necessary.

This program's interface presents a bold default background image of a nature scene. This customizable background is a sign of things to come as All-In-One attempts to provide a service unlike other calendar programs. Still, users familiar with Microsoft Outlook will find this calendar and address book mimics the more popular program almost perfectly. One interesting addition is the option to separate your calendar into personal and business sides, a feature that may appeal to those trying to manage a work/life balance.

All-In-One replaces your desktop with options not found in other calendars. By enlarging the program to full screen you will have an opportunity to open your Web browser, choose between and open five different popular e-mail programs, use a calculator, and open any program your computer already has on its desktop.

It may take users some time to adapt to the completely new look and feel of their desktop, and this is where it becomes a matter of preference for how useful users find All-In-One Desktop Calendar to be. If you've been dreaming about a program that smoothly combines all these elements, look no further. However, if you are happy with your desktop, you might find All-In-One Desktop Calendar to be just unnecessary desktop clutter.
