    "All charm, no voodoo."

    July 8, 2010  |   By Mike Cogswell

    Version: WinReminders 1.10.33

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Summary

    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.

    "Good program backed up by first rate support."

    August 31, 2006  |   By Keith_Miller

    Version: WinReminders 1.9.8

    Pros

    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...

    "Good, simple to use. Useful network capabilities"

    April 9, 2006  |   By a_j_burgess

    Version: WinReminders 1.8.11

    Pros

    Useful network capabilities. Not specific to Outlook

    Cons

    Tasks need more detail. Most important to me is date the task was created which was not present. For this reason I will not be using it - I am looking for a simple daily log application

    "This software saved me from myself. :0) Amen."

    September 1, 2005  |   By Ro-bow

    Version: WinReminders 1.7

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    "What would I do without it!!! I love this program!!!!! Thanks!"

    April 13, 2005  |   By andyb_boy

    Version: WinReminders 1.4

    Pros

    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!

    Cons

    To be honest, yet to find a con. Still looking though.

    "A great little program - simple enough even for me:-)"

    April 11, 2005  |   By Beech

    Version: WinReminders 1.4

    Pros

    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!

    Cons

    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.

    "Best one word description? Horrible"

    April 11, 2005  |   By ZeeGee

    Version: WinReminders 1.4

    Pros

    None

    Cons

    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!
