Desktop-Reminder is a FREEWARE task planner with calendar and reminder. Always during start of Windows it lists all tasks, which are urgent for that day. It can notify about tasks even months earlier. For tasks with defined time of day an according notification message with an alarm sound will be shown.
Why is Desktop-Reminder better than every other task planner for Windows?
1. You can be notified even few months earlier about an urgent task. In such a way you can quit every long-term contract (e.g. mobile phone contract) right on time.
2. There is no need to give annoying time of day for the task - who cares, at what time is grandma's birthday?
3. No need to input the end time for a task or the task duration. Defining a new task is simple and quick.
However if you define time of day for the task, Desktop-Reminder can notify you with an alarm message with a sound in the range of one minute to few hours before the time comes. You don't miss your favorite TV-program and you don't bid too late on eBay.
