Desktop iCalendar Lite offers users a way to keep their calendar at the forefront of their computer. With a simple interface and few problems, this is a great way for users to stay on top of the day's events.

This free program lays itself out on the upper right corner of your desktop. A month-view calendar appears, with the current day highlighted, and below it is a list of reminders for the day and a to-do list. All are dark and hide well on the computer desktop with text that is either orange or white. In addition, the entire image can be altered by accessing the Options menu in the desktop tray icon. From there, users can choose several skin color options as well as the opacity. Entering reminders and to-dos is very simple, thanks to their intuitive nature. Users are taken to a screen that allows for a title, date, and notes to be entered. The reminder allows you to set an alarm, while the to-do can be adjusted with status and priority.

While we wondered why the to-do and reminder options weren't combined into one excellent package instead of two fairly redundant ones, we felt this was a great program for users looking for an organizational tool that is much simpler than popular in-depth calendaring software. We recommend this program for users seeking a simple calendar.

"Not really free"

April 19, 2012  |  By raverboy4ever

 |  Version: Desktop iCalendar Lite 1.9.3

Pros

This is a nicely-done program that is almost completely customizable (even for the "lite" version).

Cons

It would be nice to turn off the hourly chime, but maybe the full version allows it. Also, it appears that after 30 days the full version must be purchased, if what I was reading in the help was correct. When I found that out I uninstalled it.

Summary



Updated on Apr 19, 2012

I would use this program again if the "lite" version remained truly free and didn't force the user to upgrade. I'm thinking that the newest version might be the first that has such a requirement but I'm not certain.

"IT REVOLUTIONIZED MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

May 18, 2011  |  By charles_a567

 |  Version: Desktop iCalendar Lite 1.9.3

Pros

Because of this calendar, I must admit that I AM SUPER DUPER ORGANIZED NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cons

I must also admit that this Calendar has tons of other features such as email notifications, but I don't use any of them, and I see that other people are complaining about the other features.

Summary

If you need a Calendar at your Desktop to help you get organized, this will definitely be your good friend! However, if you require some of the other more advanced features, then I'm not sure how well they work?? All I ever needed was a Calendar right at my face everyday when I'm using my PC, lol .... this ensures me that I don't forget anything : )
