{for=”Ease of Use” value=”7″}While it is fairly easy to use, it still takes a bit of learning – it is not “obvious”.{/for}

{for=”Usefulness” value=”10″}In today’s hectic world who does not need something that will remind them of important events?{/for}

{/rw_score} –>

The program installs and registers fine in Vista Home Premium 32 bit.

The program itself, while not foolproof, is relatively self explanatory and it has a pretty simple interface (but it takes a tiny bit of effort to learn and get familiar with).

The one option I liked about this program is the ability to set a reminder for an event at any specific time.

Personally, while this is a good program, I will keep with Rainlendar [2]. Rainlendar [2] is a free software that does all this program does + more.

The only things this program has over Rainlendar is:

  1. The ability to remind about an event on a designated time as opposed to just X amount of hours/mins/days before the event
  2. Storing events in a database.
  3. The ability to create multiple reminder lists (With Rainlendar you can only create one To Do list and one Events list – for most people this is enough, but for some it may not be).
  4. Email reminders.

What makes Rainlendar better then this program:

  1. Its free (but so is this program…for today)
  2. Rainlendar displays your To Do list, Event list, and a Calender right on your desktop.
  3. Rainlendar has an easier system of adding/removing events.
  4. Rainlendar has a better system of describing events and setting them up.
  5. Rainlendar can have two separate lists – one a To Do list the other an Events list.

PMnet Verdict: While Reminder Commander is an excellent program, get Rainlendar instead – it is better.
