Editors' Review

MiniMinder is a small utility program that lets you set reminders for yourself about upcoming events, deadlines, and anniversaries. You can decide how long in advance you want an item to appear on the main list of alerts, where you can see at a glance what's going on in the near future.

Pros

Scheduling options: For each event you create, you can set whether this is a one-time thing or whether it's an item that you want to recur with regularity. Select daily, monthly, quarterly, or yearly to have a reminder appear multiple times without having to enter the information repeatedly.

Customizable interface: While the app does come with a moderately unattractive greenish background color, you can change this through the Settings menu. Select from a wide variety of colors to make the app's interface as appealing as possible for you.

Cons

Clunky interface: MiniMinder does not have a terribly intuitive interface, so it takes a bit of poking around before you figure out how to access all of the features. Since it's not a complicated program, this doesn't take too long, but it certainly doesn't add to the user experience at all.

Featureless: Compared to other programs of this type, MiniMinder comes up a little short in the features department. With only a few options for setting recurring reminders and no calendar view, this app is just about as bare bones as they come.

Bottom Line

MiniMinder is free, and it does work the way it's supposed to. So if you don't mind the limitations listed above, it may be a good program to try. But there are definitely other similar programs out there that offer a bit more, both in terms of features and user experience.
