Editors' Review

+

While we appreciate this program's unobtrusive approach to reminding us of important task and appointments, its second-rate interface design left very little to be desired.

MiniMinder appears as a tiny window on your desktop. Important reminders are presented on top of a green background, which is a little hard to read. Clicking on the Edit button introduces the second interface, which lacks any effort at design. The Options menu is the place for scheduling daily reminders, but it offered very few scheduling options. It mostly contained options for changing the interface's appearance. Adding a new task involved entering the event name, and selecting an occurrence option from an awkward drop-down list. We were able to add a specific date, but not a specific time. The program includes a Help feature, but it's just as awkward, clutter, and difficult to navigate as the program itself. Eventually, we were able to add a task, and receive the reminder, but getting to that point was a pain.

If you're looking for an easy to use program to keep you on task, this probably isn't the one for you, even with the free price tag. We recommend that you keep looking for a calendar program that sports a more professionally designed, easy to navigate interface.
