Editors' Review

+

There are a lot of calendar applications out there, and by this point we think that most people have settled on their favorites, whether they're devoted to Outlook, the online capabilities of Google Calendar, or something else. Most of the stand-alone calendar applications that we review don't particularly impress us, simply because they offer little in the way of features that could conceivably lure people away from other programs. VueMinder Calendar Lite, however, is an exception: this flexible calendar fills a niche that other calendar programs don't.

The application's interface is sleek and attractive, reminding us very much of Microsoft Outlook. It has all the typical things you'd expect from a calendar: you can create different categories to organize events and appointments, set reminders with alarms, and so-on. Where this calendar really shines, however, is with its interactive capabilities. You can share calendars on a local area network, subscribe to any calendars that follow the standard iCalendar format, and sync the VueMinder Calendar with multiple Google Calendars. We also very much like the optional desktop calendar that the program offers; this translucent calendar can be moved around the screen and have its opacity adjusted, allowing you to have a seamlessly integrated calendar readily available. The program's online Help file is well-written and thorough. Overall, we were quite impressed with both the design and features of VueMinder Calendar Lite, and we recommend it highly.

VueMinder Calendar Lite is free. The program installs and uninstalls without issues.

"only one problem"

July 13, 2011  |  By powderpuff2364

 |  Version: VueMinder Calendar Lite 8.2

Pros

Relatively easy to use, once the directions are understood.

Cons

FONTS are so small that, unless eye-sight is PERFECT, even pop-up reminders are too SMALL to read. Adjustable fonts would make this calendar GREAT, for people with bad eyesight.

Summary

Good product, good features. Just wish the FONTS were adjustable.

"An excellent product"

June 28, 2011  |  By mkj011

 |  Version: VueMinder Calendar Lite 8.2

Pros

Excellent interface.
Abitlity to have your google calenders ( I prefer subscribing using ics link)
Excellent support (Am a lite user ever sine I reported a bug, developer has been in constant touch and has reported having a solution for next version)

Cons

A bug that has problems in subscribing never ending recurring events ,( as said above it looks like it will be fixed soon)

Summary

I primarily using it on our family desktop where I can put my work rotation, planned family trips etc.,
I am not a fan of transparent displayon my desktop( as i prefer family picture as background), but surprisingly the min calender is very well designed, showing dates colour coded as per event under different calender.
And when you move the mouse over coloured date, there is small description of event,along with the calender in which its created with time !! Its a well thought out product.

Am looking forward to buying a pro after discovering some more functions.

"Probably the best free calendar out there."

June 09, 2011  |  By gumski

 |  Version: VueMinder Calendar Lite 8.2

Pros

Well laid out with all the features easy to understand and put into use. Transparent calendar for desktop very handy. Excellent support. An excellent product for free.

Cons

A lot of must have functions only available in the paid version.

Summary

$40 doesn't sound a lot but as a pensioner I can't justify that amount of cash to buy the Pro version. I don't need all the top end bells and whistles but a built in task manager is a must for me, I don't want a seperate program just for tasks. I need a calendar and task manager together to load on boot-up so the first thing I see is what day is it, where am I and what is there to do! Got Outlook 2007 somewhere so I'll use that I suppose, a pity as VueMinder is a great product.

Update. It says at the top buy now for $31.99. This converts today to 22.35 euros (I live in Spain) - so why, when I go on the site to purchase it, (FastSpring LLC in the USA) is the price 28.79 euros??? A bit of a stitch-up I feel, why the price difference, it's not as if they are posting it?? Active Desktop Calendar is $29 or 22.11 euros, a fair conversion. Not a big deal I know, but it bugged me. Hello, Active Desktop Calendar!

All right I give up! Tried the Pro version for a while and for me nothing comes close to it. It's time to eat my hat and pay up.
