Editors' Review

Desktop Calendar Reminder promises to help you keep track of the days and important events. However, this basic calendar doesn't really live up to its promise or, for that matter, its name.

This program isn't much to look at. It presents itself as a simple light-blue calendar that pops up on the middle of your desktop in a small rectangle. There is space for writing a note about the day at the bottom. There are also tabs for the day's notes and for a general area to write non-date-specific notes. We were a little confused, since part of its name implies that the program offers a reminder feature, but there was no alarm or automated reminder system in place. Nowhere in this program did we find a way to enhance this simple calendar with a way to keep us on task. From our best guess, the term "reminder" refers to the small screen at the bottom that can be written upon.

We found nothing special about this program that Windows users don't already have built-in. Besides its simple ability to type a note for that day, there is nothing that makes this program anything but a digitized version of the paper calendar hanging on your wall. We recommend users look elsewhere for calendars.
