"Very simple application with great presentation and essential function"
Version: Screen Calendar for Outlook 7.1
I highly recommend this to whoever would benefit from having their appointment calendar in front of them whenever they're at their computer.
It's very easy to install and configure.
The non-intrusive calendar is transparent and can easily be switched between 1 of two sizes.
My appointments show in the larger calendar & I can double-click them and the outlook appointment is activated, even if outlook isn't running. Outlook reminders are activated even though Outlook isn't running.
Great 'wow' factor - it gets peoples attention & 2/2 already said 'what's that & where do I get it?'
Doesn't get in the way of desktop icons - even icons behind the calendar are accessible.
Featherysoft Email support was prompt & effective.
With this and Quick Notes Plus, my schedule and todos are nicely displayed on the desktop.
Haven't tried their bundled wallpaper or wallpaper changer; I just use my own. Others may like this feature, though.
More like observations than cons - the resource draw is worth the function provided...
As would be expected, startup is delayed a bit - but not too bad.
Although I've had many apps running along with it and it doesn't interfere, it uses a bit of CPU (10%) every 5-10 seconds - memory usage is OK at less than 10M of 1G.
