Editors' Review

Need to keep up to date? Try the unobtrusive but feature-rich Active Desktop Calendar. Launching at start-up, it displays an attractive three-month calendar view on, yes, your desktop. By double-clicking a day or the sidebar, you can quickly access tasks and see details of upcoming events. You also can display Outlook information and download and connect to other people's calendars via a LAN to see changes in their schedules. The program has a simple contact manager as well. Considering all the cool stuff it does, Active Desktop Calendar doesn't consume much memory.

We did notice a few shortcomings in this generally excellent program. For example, though the window for adding a new note contains a subject line and a body field, only the subject-line text appears on the calendar and in the sidebar. The monthly calendar view looks pretty clunky, too. On the bright side, you can switch among several desktop images and set the program as the default screensaver, which will display several world clocks. Active Desktop Calendar also exports and imports iCal calendar files and can read your Google Calendar on the hour (though not, apparently, at specified intervals or on demand, which is a bit frustrating). Overall, this program's strong functionality and design make it a good choice for home and business users.

"This program is great for busy people."

July 25, 2006  |  By starfish6340

 |  Version: Active Desktop Calendar 6.2

Pros

I love the fact that it shows up right ontop of my desktop. It can have important dates added right from the desktop with an easy click of the mouse. I am a small business owner and this program has helped me greatly with keeping up with my meetings and all other important information on a daily basis.

"Just Use IT!"

July 23, 2006  |  By gcasanova

 |  Version: Active Desktop Calendar 6.2

Pros

A very attractive PIM for those that are really busy; so busy that they forget to review their PIMs.

This software works from your desktop and remembers you what you need to be reminded. You don't have to open a program to see what you have to do, just minimize all other software and there in your desktop you will see your calendar, notes, appointments and more if you want.

Cons

Few if nothing at all.
