Editors' reviewNothing to write home about, Easy Calendar is a relatively simple alternative to Outlook's datebook. The calendar and reminder utilities are presented through a rather dull interface cluttered with buttons. The tray icon only serves to pop up the main window. We did like the Day and Week views, as well as the fact you can spread the description of an event across days on a single line instead of repeating the description for each day. Easy Calendar doesn't have a large footprint on system memory, but 5MB still seems greedy for a program that primarily runs in the background. There's no reason for Outlook users to switch to Easy Calendar, and others are likely to find better alternatives.
An easy to use calendar with reminders, just click a date and type. Reminders include recurring reminders (set them up once and they always appear), alerts for U.S. holidays (set up federal and popular holidays with a few clicks), connected reminders (span multiple days on a single calendar line). Recurring frequencies include every day, week, month and year and their multiples(biweekly, every 3 days, etc). Monthly, weekly, and daily calendar view. Print an image at the top of a calendar month. Format toolbar with fonts. Export to html, put your calendar on the Internet. Customizable : appearance, keyboard shortcuts, pop-up menu and main menu. Customizable user commands, five on the toolbar.
What's new in this version:
Version 3.6 prints an image at the top of a calendar month, integrates the reminder table into the calendar program, and is now freeware.
