The VueMinder Ultimate application is a great calendar and also a good event reminder. It is appropriate for users with a busy schedule.
At first sight, it seems to be a complicated program, with many options and settings, but it is actually not hard to use. You encounter from the very start a wizard meant to help you apply the first settings. I like the fact that you can select to receive e-mail or text messages reminders.
The interface is endowed with the main menu bar, the main toolbar, together with a floating one. The app provides a calendar with many customizable settings. There is also a category list where you can choose among different event types that can be prioritized. Most of the interface is occupied by the actual agenda which is presented in five forms: daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, and chronologically. You will find four fields at the bottom of the page: events, tasks, notes, and contacts. The option field offers you many possibilities to adapt the program to your needs. The settings made in the first place can be modified at any moment. The appearance supports changes by choosing one of sixteen themes. Another nice thing is the fact that you can use a color code for each day. This is useful when you try to visualize how your schedule looks like.
An interesting part of this application is the calendar gadget for Windows 7. It appears on desktop and in this way you have the agenda next to you, every time you need it. The graphic part of this gadget looks like the actual VueMinder Ultimate app, but with some little changes. The reduced opacity is favorable because it doesn't disturb your view when you use another program. Also, you can minimize it into an ordinary calendar to occupy a smaller region of your desktop.
This is a very useful program considering that most of the people prefer an electronic device instead of a classic agenda to set their schedule. It has a very nice interface, which makes me state that VueMinder Ultimate is an application that is worth trying.
