Events Manager offers to help users avoid missing important events with its simple task reminder system, but it may be too basic for some.
This freeware program has an interface that could not be much simpler: a rectangular blank screen with some menus along the top of the box. Here users can choose between File, Events, Options, and Help. By selecting a new event, users are prompted to enter data in the appropriate fields. Event name, notes, time, and date are all easy to add. In addition, users can choose any MP3 or WAV file of their choice to use as the reminder sound. The listing of events is as basic as the program, with each event taking up a little more of the blank screen on the interface.
Events Manager functioned perfectly, though we were hoping for a few more features. A calendar would be nice and a calendar view of all upcoming events would have been even better. However, we cannot complain as this download makes the complicated job of keeping users informed very simple and reliable. We recommend this free download for anyone who does not need the abundant options of more complex reminder systems.
