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:
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.
There is no need to define time of day for the task - who cares, at what time is grandma’s birthday?
No need to input the end time for the task or the task duration - who cares how long the birthday party last. Defining 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.
