What is Desktop-Reminder?

Desktop-Reminder is a FREEWARE task planner for Windows to manage your tasks and other to-dos’ in an easy way. It can start with Windows and list all tasks, which are urgent for the current day. For a task with time of day defined a corresponding alarm message will be shown, when the time comes.

Why is Desktop-Reminder better than every other task planner for Windows?

There are three main advantages of using Desktop-Reminder instead of other task planners:
  1. It can notify you even few months earlier about an urgent task. In such a way you can quit every long-term contract (e.g. mobile phone contract) right on time.
  2. There is no need to define time of day for the task - who cares, at what time is grandma’s birthday?
  3. No need to input the end time for the task or the task durationDefining a new task is simple and quick.

However if you define time of day for the task, Desktop-Reminder can notify you with an alarm message with a sound in the range of one minute to few hours before the time comes. You don’t miss your favorite TV-program and you don’t bid too late on eBay.
