Review: Rainlendar Lite tracks upcoming events in an easy-to-use calendar

View calendar events and tasks from your desktop using Rainlendar Lite for Mac.

As an easy-to-use desktop application, Rainlendar Lite for Mac allows for easy viewing, editing, and synchronizing of calendar events both online and offline. This application works well as a calendar and task manager and has all of the expected features, but ultimately lacks functions when compared to other, more popular programs.

Rainlendar Lite for Mac installs quickly and places a small icon on the Mac's top menu bar. There are no other control menus to speak of, but the drop-down is easy to use for those familiar with other calendar applications. The calendar displays in the background and has additional spaces for events and to-do tasks. The default appearance was difficult to see clearly, but the easily available options menu allows this to be changed to a better look, depending on the user's preference. Large addition signs are used to add events and tasks to the calendar, which is a feature typical for most calendar programs. The extensive options do allow the program's display to be customized in a number of ways. Beyond this, there are no additional features. While this version of the software is free of charge, there is also a pro version available for 9.95 EUR, which lets you share events with other computers and subscribe to calendars available online.

While highly customizable and bug-free, Rainlendar Lite for Mac lacks any features to set it apart from other calendar applications.
