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

    September 1, 2005  |   By Ro-bow

    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.
