    "Probably the best free calendar out there."

    June 9, 2011  |   By gumski

    Version: VueMinder 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.

    "Very good tool and no brainer launch."

    May 13, 2011  |   By ZimMan1

    Version: VueMinder Lite 8.1.3

    Pros

    Easy to import calendars from outside sources. Good cosmetics. Zero launch problems. Lots of color and font options to differentiate specific calendars. Lots of options for recurring events. Easy to sync with Google Calendar.

    Cons

    Tasks / To Do's require purchasing the Pro version depending on how one manages a honey-do list.

    Summary

    Highly recommend. Using the free version (Lite) now with plans to buy up to the Pro level soon.

    "purty darn good calendar"

    February 4, 2011  |   By harster

    Version: VueMinder Lite 8.1.1

    Pros

    installed smoothly, LOTS of options, opens/closes fast, use with any application since it opens from the system tray instantly, neat customizable alarms.

    Cons

    Not everything works perfectly, a tiny bit cluttered looking but neither is a big deal. Takes a few minutes to learn your way around all the options but since there are so many, that's to be expected.

    Summary

    I really like it! The "cons" should resolve themselves eventually. I've only had it a week or so and it's already updated once. The biggest plus is it's speed. You don't have to open an email program/browser to have your calendar right there.

    Updated on Feb 4, 2011

    Oh yeah, I'm using it with Win XP SP 3 on an almost 4 year old PC with 2GB RAM and LOTS of utilities (all up to date), applications etc. and it doesn't seem to be causing any problems.
