WinReminders is an easy to use, yet powerful time management application that can automatically remind you of events such as birthdays, anniversaries, appointments, bill payments, and any others you need to remember. The main features include an automatic event reminder system, including support for rule based events (for example 3rd Monday in January), custom event schedules (for example every 6 days), e-mail based reminders, a task list for keeping track of your to-do items with categories, advanced filtering and sorting capabilities, an integrated calendar for reviewing and editing your reminders, a date calculator that can be used for calculating projected dates, automatic data archiving, printing support, customizable visual themes and no unwanted background processes slowing your computer down. WinReminders supports private and public events and network support allows seamless public event and task sharing between users. WinReminders is perfect for home use and small businesses looking to take the hassle out of being organized.
IJW: It just works. My appreciation of WinReminders gets better every time I download other applications from CNet. Okay, I haven't downloaded the whole CNet library, but I've had some rough times with apps. This is NOT one of those.
The fact I can't print my reminders, but it seems that's added in the next version so it will be no cons then, tbh.
I think I reviewed an earlier version so I won't go into it again. I'm really just here while I wait for another app I am in the middle of reviewing to finish running. If you want a no nonsense program though, I recommend WinReminders and have been doing so for years to my friends.
Someone my age has been around long enough to give credit where it's due and it's certainly due here. The support people were very responsive to my questions and also very courteous. Now I have been up and running with this program for about 3 weeks I can say it is a nice little program and worth every cent I paid. I recommend it to all. Thanks and god bless...

Adding a date for tasks is fairly simple, and can easily be added to a future version. Please let us know what, if any, additional fields you'd like to see, as the make-up of future releases of WinReminders is largely dictated by user feedback. Thanks again.
Last year I forgot a pretty important birthday (too embarrassing to say whose... ok mom's birthday!! Yikes!) but this year I tried using this software so I had no chance of forgetting. Like clockwork, 7 days in advance, like I asked, I got reminded, so I went out and bought my gift and now I'm in the good books again! Besides birthdays I also use it for bills, doctor's appointments (I have a few of those recently; not describing that here though or I might be banned!) and all that stuff I used to scrawl over little bits of paper and then lose them. Order out of chaos? Well I don't think I was at the point where my life was chaos, and I still don't think it's 100% ordered, but this software has put my mind at rest for remembering all the things I need to remember. To be honest I'd give it 4.5 stars because I don't think it's perfect yet, but can't do halves so I give it 5 for the new stuff that has been added. (see my cons). Oh and 3 months to try it out is great, but I bought it within a few weeks because I'm just like that I guess.
I started using this software when it was 1-5 and didn't like that you could only get reminders when you started your computer, because a lot of the time I leave my computer running so I can let virus scanners and adware scanners do their thing. Now this new version lets me schedule reminders for whenever I want so it's no longer something I'm worried about. Another thing I didn't like in 1-5 was that I couldn't get reminded about things in my to do list, but I think that is also something new in this version. Being extra picky being able to skin the software would be nice, but it looks fairly good anyway so maybe I'm asking more than I need.
I dont know what that Zeebeegeebee guy is talking about but my whole transaction ran so smoothly from beginning to end I wish all internet dealings were like this. The program is awesome and my life is now 200% easier. I will never mess an event or anniversary ever again! Please if you are as disorganised as me just try this product!
To be honest, yet to find a con. Still looking though.
Very simple and easy to use. Especially like the date calculator and the simplicity of the "reminder screen" every time I log on to let me know of what events, bills etc I have coming up. Easier than looking in my diary all the time, especially when you have to work at a pc all day!
The task manager is a little more than I need, but at least it affects nothing at all in the way the program functions if I don't use it.
I wish there was a category for "no stars". After d/l'ing and PAYING for this product, the company HES never sent me a registration/authorization code. After several email requests (all with no response) I had to file a legal complaint against them through paypal. My advice? AVOID this company!
We are a company based in Australia, hence we have just arrived at work this morning and found three e-mails from you including payment notification. Now we have sent your registration code we hope that you may ammend the feedback you left. Clearly you were impressed with the product enough to buy it right away. We apologize for any inconvenience!
