Unprofessional organizer

A nearly-nude "virtual agent" detracts from this otherwise work-appropriate program.

What can we really say about an application that looks like a run-of-the-mill personal organizer but opens with a scantily clad woman rapping on our screen to get our attention? We're no prudes, but perhaps if eReminder Sp1 - Easy Planner Secretary wants to be taken seriously, it should reconsider its nipple-baring virtual spokesmodel.

Virtual babe aside, this is an OK program. There's nothing about it that really blew our minds, but it offers a solid set of organizational features. The calendar function has six different views, allowing users to see everything from the current day to the entire year at a glance. Reminders can be set for important events, with alerts delivered via e-mail, pop-up, and several other methods. The program also contains tools for managing task lists, contacts, and notes. The program has a separate weather interface that also includes a minicalendar and task list, and we like the fact that it's capable of integrating with Microsoft Outlook. The built-in Help file is well-written and thorough, and the program is highly configurable, making it easy for users to customize it to meet their needs. Overall, eReminder Sp1 - Easy Planner Secretary doesn't offer much in the way of unique features, but it's not a bad choice for users who need a relatively simple way to keep track of appointments, to-do lists, and contact information. We just wish the program would get rid of its nearly nude "virtual agent." We're not opposed to having a virtual woman reminding us of appointments; we'd just like her to put some clothes on.

eReminder Sp1 - Easy Planner Secretary installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
