Put Google Calendar reminders on your desktop
A Google account has become almost a necessity on the web today, and one of the best features of it is Google Calendar.
If you use Google Calendar, GMinder is a little program that integrates with it to give you reminders about events on your calendar whether you're connected to the internet or not.
All that is necessary is entering your Google user name and password, then GMinder will download your calendar details. You can set how often it refreshed details from Google, and how many days it will pre-load too. Events are color coded by time (future, soon, now or past), and you can configure this to your tastes, as well as set a sound to accompany any alert.
The application sits in the system tray. Double clicking opens a window with your calendar plus some buttons (like a snooze button) and a single click will give you a small pop-up with today's events.
GMinder is a neat little application for any Windows Google Calendar user. Perhaps the only negative point is that you can't set events from the program - you still need to use your browser for that.
Small and lightweight, GMinder is a great addition to Google Calendar.
