Efficient Calendar Free

CNET 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.

    Version: Efficient Calendar Free 1.40 Build 58

    Pros

    Nice large calander space, good colors, pleanty of room for creating a schedule. Includes a totay feature, events, task, search, mininal buttons to get the basic job done.

    Cons

    I could use a spell check!

    Summary

    For free? Come on! This is a GREAT gadget to have! I'm already a twitter thinking of how usedful this will be to me as a writer. Plus, it's nice to have something this well crafted by a smaller company, instead of throwing my money to the big-wigs.

    "Nag Nag Nag"

    January 13, 2010  |   By xymptlx

    Version: Efficient Calendar Free 1.40 Build 58

    Pros

    Does a good job at keeping track of tasks and appointments

    Cons

    Constant nags to buy Effecient PIM and update to newer version. Frankly, I will uninstall this very soon unless the nags stop. It says it only shows once and then nags you every day.

    Summary

    I expect that in spite of this being a nice program, it's more trouble than it's worth, and I like the security of an online task/appointment book so if my computer ever crashes, I don't lose all my data.
