Editors' Review


Calendar applications are everywhere, built into mobile phones, e-mail clients, and even e-mail services themselves. This integration is often handy, but for users who prefer a stand-alone, PC-based calendar, there's Desktop Events Planner. This basic calendar lets users keep track of what's going on right on their desktops, and it's a nice choice for those who don't need to share or remotely access their calendars.

The program's interface is plain, just a basic calendar that can float on the desktop or be minimized to the system tray. Despite the calendar's no-frills appearance, the program does offer a fair number of customizations, including options for adjusting color, menus, and time and date formats. Users can add events to the calendar by simply double-clicking on the appropriate day and choosing whether the event is a one-time occurrence or one that repeats weekly, monthly, or yearly. Reminders can be set to alert users to an upcoming event minutes, hours, or days beforehand. A backup feature lets users save the calendar's contents so that it can be restored in the event of a data loss, but we wished that the program let users select the destination of the backup so that the calendar could be saved, for example, to an external hard drive. The built-in Help file is brief but adequate. Overall, Desktop Events Planner works just fine, and we recommend it to users who need a stand-alone calendar. Users who want to share or sync their calendars, however, will need to look elsewhere.

Desktop Events Calendar installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Desktop Events Planner 2.3. The trial version is limited to 30 days.
