Editors' reviewThere are simply too many calendar programs on the market, so we expect a lot from programs that claim to be "highly customizable." Desktop Calendar places a calendar grid on your (duh!) desktop to which you add appointments and reminders. Notes appear on the calendar once entered. Events can be exported to CVS, DAT, and TXT files, or imported from CVS or DAT files. The only customizable feature we found was one to change the color of the calendar, however. We also couldn't figure out how to set reminders for upcoming events. While Desktop Calendar works just fine, it's got so few features we feel it's hardly more useful than some freeware apps on the market. And last we checked, most paper calendars were cheaper, too.
Desktop Calendar is a highly customizable calendar program that turns your desktop into a traditional wall calendar. You can enter important dates such as dentist appointments, birthdays, or deadlines. Then when you turn your computer on or that day rolls over, you will be alerted of any events. Befitting its name, it's a "straight-to-the-point" program with which to organize your life. The calendar itself can be as bold or discreet on your desktop as you see fit, and due to its design doesn't take up many systems resources.
What's new in this version:
- The hotkey CTRL+A will now select all text in the edit window
- Minor improvements to installer\uninstaller
- Bug fix: Events would get truncated around 1000 characters. Now the program informs the user when they have reached the limit and stops any further input to avoid data loss
