Editors' Review

+
There 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.

"It's good, quick, and doesn't slow your system !"

November 30, 2009  |  By leycesteria

 |  Version: Desktop Calendar 0.43b

Pros

It doesn't slow Vista down. Pin it to your start menu and a box appears as soon as it launches to remind you about appointments. No rubbish about duration, location or 'all-day appointments' boxes that you need to tick on other calendars.

Cons

It takes a while to get used to being brief so that you can see multiple appointments in the unexpanded boxes, but you can work out alerts like asterisks or exclamation marks.

Summary

I've used this for years, I'd be lost without it. Click on the date, type abbreviated info into the expanded box so that it shows all of the appointments in the unexpanded box instantly and you can see a month at a glance. Use the arrows at the top to go back to the previous year to pick up dates for birthdays, M.O.T.'s, check-ups or forward - as you would expect. Tinnes are OK, and it is free, and it doesn't instantly 'cleverly' mesh with loads of unwanted windows programmes like live messenger or business manager and clutter your screen up with boxes that you have to close. Probably best of all, it is probably the only software on my PC that doesn't slow Vista down to a snail's pace, or stop it dead in its tracks. I really do like it - it does what it says on the Tinne.... (sorry!)

"Simple yet Functional"

August 19, 2009  |  By Zoowey

 |  Version: Desktop Calendar 0.43b

Pros

There is a paid version with many more features but the free version is a very simple yet functional and useful electronic calendar.

Cons

None. For those complaining about a lack of features you gotta fork up the money for them.

Summary

The free version really is not much different than a normal paper calendar but for people who simply want to write down day to day reminders the free version is perfect.
