Organize your schedule and get reminders with a free calendar program. Google Calendars can be synced to your computer and even accessed while offline. A transparent calendar displays on the Windows desktop, providing easy access to your schedule.
Version: 2018.02VueMinder Lite is a FREE calendar and reminder program.
Operating System: Windows
If you're looking for the perfect offline PC-based companion to Google Calendar, you've found it in VueMinder, which supports automatic synchronization with Google Calendar and can show your schedule regardless of whether you happen to be online or offline. Data is also backed up automatically, protecting you against the potential loss of your Google Calendar events.
A calendar browser allows addition of many calendars, such as holidays, local weather, sport schedules, religious occasions, and more.
You can also create your own calendars, which are overlaid into day, week, and month views. Events can be filtered or color-coded based on associated calendar, category, priority, or location. Calendars can also be printed using a wide variety of templates and settings.
ICS calendar subscriptions are fully supported, along with the ability to import or export ICS files. Calendars can be saved as web pages (HTML) for publication to your website or sharing with others.
Files can be linked to events and opened using just 2 clicks of the mouse.
Print features are also provided, with a number of layout styles and a preview window that dynamically refreshes to show exactly what will be printed.
VueMinder truly shines in the way it presents reminders, which can be either popup windows or unobtrusive desktop alerts.
Reminders can be configured to play media files or even recite text-to-speech descriptions. If your computer speakers are turned up, you'll be able to hear the details of your reminder from another room - no more wondering what the computer is beeping about.
If you're familiar with Microsoft Outlook, VueMinder will feel instantly familiar.
Even if you've never used Outlook, VueMinder is very intuitive and easy to learn, with many convenient touches, such as the ability to undo accidental reminder dismissal.
