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.

    "OK but SLOW"

    September 09, 2014   |   By Spiderhulk63

    Version: VueMinder Lite 11.2.3

    Pros

    Simple and Easy

    Cons

    Slow to load, slow to open entries, and I have a 2.7 ghz with 6gb ram and very little software running besides Office/Word. So it should not be so slow.

    Summary

    I downloaded the lite version, and then paid $50 for the pro version, and in spite of a year of updates, it never got any faster, and I really only use it as a back-up calendar.

    "Finally found it! The best schedule organizing program!"

    April 16, 2014   |   By MeimanB

    Version: VueMinder Lite 11.0.5

    Pros

    * Too many Pros to list.
    * The free edition is so good!
    * Features like: recurring dates and descriptions and locations ability to show Working hours and so much more!
    * A better alternative to Google Calendar.
    * So simple it does not occupy much of RAM or physical memory.
    * Just get it.

    Cons

    * Maybe one could be the Design of program if acting too picky. Actually w/e is there is in the perfect balance: many programs whether complicate it or simplify it too much.

    Summary

    Okay, so I was looking for a good calendar to get organized. A lot of them cost $. Important to note, a lot of them do not give this simple ability: time-schedule that you can easily edit as if you are using a physical day planner in front of you, with the exception that VueMinder is much better. I think I will completely settle in this software from physical planner. I am in love with this! Big "thank you" to the team who made it. Well done!

    "Attractive, Reliable, Comprehensive"

    February 17, 2014   |   By LadyNetworker

    Version: VueMinder Lite 11.0.2

    Pros

    More features than I'll ever probably need, so covers everything that I need now. Multiple calendars can be made and lots of color-coding as needed. Nice transparency feature for desktop. Choice between popup or desktop alerts. Plenty of space and features to add lots of info about each events.

    Cons

    Have to keep a window open (can minimize) in order for desktop calendar to show. Not an issue. I just like to keep my taskbar cleaned up.

    Summary

    Great free, desktop calendar. Am so glad that I found it.

    "Loaded with features and very customizable."

    November 15, 2013   |   By LadyNetworker

    Version: VueMinder Lite 10.1.9

    Pros

    Two different types of alerts. You can test to see which one you prefer. Attractive interface. Can create what seems to be an unlimited number of calendars, and even calendar groups.

    Cons

    In order for calendar to display on desktop, must have window opened always, either minimized or maximized. If this window is exited, desktop calendar closes and icon in notification area leaves. Just a small thing really. Just didn't expect to have to have an additional window open at all times.

    Summary

    Love this calendar. Lite has everything that I need.

    "Simply Outstanding Calendar application"

    August 01, 2013   |   By atunis58041

    Version: VueMinder Lite 10.1.9

    Pros

    Covers all the bases - nothing imaginable is left out. Syncs with Google Calendar. Offers an impressive list of customizations.

    Cons

    May be a bit overwhelming for many users. Take the time to read through the help files, and you will be impressed with what can be done with this software - it's worth spending the time understanding how it works.

    Summary

    Simply the best calendar available, with an extraordinary list of extras!

    "Too much of everything."

    June 24, 2013   |   By bustertoad

    Version: VueMinder Lite 10.1.9

    Pros

    Easy download and install.

    Cons

    Too large, too complicated and just too overwhelming. I was misled by the term "lite". I was expecting a small unobtrusive program to run in the back ground and notify me when I ask it to. I couldn't even figure out how to get the notification function to work. Overkill for what I needed.

    Summary

    Misled by the word"lite". I uninstalled this program.

    "Absolutely wonderful"

    June 01, 2013   |   By issachar5

    Version: VueMinder Lite 10.1.9

    Pros

    Since Outlook replaced hotmail, the calendar with it is horrible. THIS calendar has ALL the bells and whistles, and works just great. I highly recommend it.

    Cons

    IT is a bit slow; there is some hesitation between click and execution.

    Summary

    I use it exclusively now instead of that awful Outlook calendar. It gives me notifications of important events when I need them and it is very reliable. I can't believe that I found it, and it is free.

    "A great program"

    May 06, 2013   |   By GERRY RAINS

    Version: VueMinder Lite 10.1.9

    Pros

    It's an excellent calendar except for one tiny nitpick. It handles months, weeks, and days.

    Cons

    Don't print out the days - it's a massive waste of ink.

    Summary

    Terrific, best calendar that I've ever had.

    "complete tasks, reminder solution"

    April 23, 2013   |   By Gat18

    Version: VueMinder Lite 10.1.9

    Pros

    I loved vueminder. 1. It stays on top of your desktop having all events/tasks/reminders at glance without slowing your computer.
    2. And I can even categorize them, and create separate calendars. All in same application, in same view. 3. It allows easy integration /sharing with outlook, exchange and google.4. Contact list integration with calendars, say shows up phone number and bday in same view

    Cons

    so far I have found this to be too good.
