Editors' review

Efficient Calendar Free is an attractive scheduling application that lets users to keep track of events, appointments, holidays, and more. If you're looking for a stand-alone calendar that's not integrated with your e-mail or other online activities, Efficient Calendar Free is a great option.

The program's interface is sleek and highly reminiscent of more recent versions of Microsoft Outlook. In fact, we'd be hard pressed to identify any ways that Efficient Calendar Free differs significantly from the calendar functions of Outlook, aside from the fact that it doesn't appear that this program can be used interactively by multiple users (no inviting other users to meetings). We liked that users can choose from eight different color schemes, allowing a bit of interface customization. The navigation pane can also be customized to show only the buttons that the user specifies. The built-in Help file is thorough and well written.

Efficient Calendar Free does all of the usual things you'd expect from a calendar and scheduler. Users can schedule reminders, set tasks and mark their progress, and make entries in both daily and monthly calendars. We like that Efficient Calendar Free lets you import holidays from several different English-speaking countries. You can even customize which holidays are imported. Overall, there's nothing really spectacular about this scheduler, but it's attractive and intuitive, and we didn't find anything about it that rubbed us the wrong way.

Efficient Calendar Free is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

    "Taking notes on Thetaplex PC's website was easy!"

    July 02, 2014

    Version: Efficient Calendar Free 3.62 Build 356

    Pros

    Good way for me to take my notes on Thetaplex PC, If it's Hip it Here dot com, etc. For all the ways I could make sure those site changes are not beginning to be misleading or bad, this is the way. Especially since I have WIN 8.1 now. With Windows Vista, no account was needed, but with WIN 8.1 I now need a MS acct.! Forget that stuff! I already have over 20 different accounts online as it is! So, I just got this good, easy to use program.

    Cons

    Does not think for me! (ha, ha, ha)

    Summary

    Seriously, I actually have to lift a finger to get something done with this program!

    April 30, 2014   |   By janijian

    Version: Efficient Calendar Free 3.62 Build 356

    Pros

    a simple, uncomplicated, easy to use, highly intuitive, full featured calendar plus task and appointment manager.

    Cons

    Can't find any cons.

    Summary

    I really can't say enough good about this full-featured easy-to-use calendar. I've been looking for something like this for a long time. It's a clean download. I ran a computer check after downloading it, and did not find any malware or threats whatsoever. I like it a lot!

    "Zero stars for this one"

    March 02, 2014   |   By ewsp

    Version: Efficient Calendar Free 3.61 Build 355

    Pros

    None as far as I can see

    Cons

    I agree with donatist59 and others. You get lots of unwanted software. I uninstalled everything without testing it when I saw how much junk they delivered me

    Summary

    Do not take the trouble of downloading it

    "ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! WILL POLLUTE YOUR PC!"

    December 10, 2013   |   By donatist59

    Version: Efficient Calendar Free 3.60 Build 352

    Pros

    None at all.

    Cons

    Program is barely functional, can't fit more than five or six events in a day, and it gets baffled if your events don't start on the half hour. MORE IMPORTANT: Downloading this software will change your default browser, change your default page, install a bunch of additional software and add a variety of toolbars. All of this has to be manually uninstalled.

    Summary

    AVOID AT ALL COSTS -- INSTALLS TONS OF UNWANTED SOFTWARE (hopefully no MALWARE). Absolute garbage. Do not trust, do not use.

    September 27, 2013   |   By HarpinMaverik

    Version: Efficient Calendar Free 3.55 Build 350

    Pros

    It will add all the holidays. It will allow me to schedule repeating monthly events for 10 months of the year with a 2 month vacation in the summer. I'm using it as an my own calendar. I have no need to invite others to look at my calendar.

    Cons

    For me, I can't think of any. As I said, it is perfect for me.

    Version: Efficient Calendar Free 3.53 Build 344

    Pros

    easy,high adaptability,perfect

    Cons

    none at present

    Summary

    after having a try, i found when i clicked the 'Driect Download Link' button below 'Download Now' , i downloaded the efficient calender free installation package directly without intalling any other programs at the same time. It seems that CNET installer bundled with other programs automatically?

    Contains 4 other programs besides calendar. All download even if boxes to download them are unchecked.

    Changes homepage, adds toolbar.

    Just wasted nearly an hour cleaning everything up.

    Tired of so many companies doing this

    "Alright application, but completely bugged!"

    June 30, 2013   |   By FUDGINGTERRIBLE

    Version: Efficient Calendar Free 3.52 Build 343

    Pros

    - none, absolutely ZERO

    Cons

    - If you know what's good for you, don't download this piece of dung. It is filled with bugs, a trojan nd will completely suck your CPU, as well as not delete without using special debugging software. It installs multiple toolbars and other background programs, and completely debilitated my computer. I have spent days trying to completely sweep it and am about to do a system reset because the hidden files gets everywhere. Do not download this calendar, and somebody put a bullet into whoever designed it.
