Scheduling Ten

Ten Things for the Calendar/Schedule Junkies

Freeware caution: always scan free downloads of anything for bugs and other threats before dumping the programs into your hard drive.

1. Agenda from Wallie Online is a simple and small calendar/organizer program.

2. Into calendars in a big way? Check out Calendar Magic.

3. OSAF's Chandler is an experimental, server-based free calender being offered for individuals and small workgroups as a test release (they want to know how it works for you.) Use it for a basic and multiple calendar(s), recurring events and more.

4. Sort out your schedule with Martin Bresson's Chaos Manager.

5. Never forget another anniversary or birthday again with's MiniMinder.

6. Multi Reminders from reminds you of holidays, celebrations and when to pay your bills.

7. Our blog pal Simon Haynes freely offers Remind Me Please, a program to give you a nudge on: " . . .upcoming events, appointments, TV programs, movies, birthdays and so on. Enter one-off or repeating events: daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and specials like 'Every two weeks from 1/1/2002' or 'Third Sunday of each month'."

8. pAgenda from is a calendar/scheduler program using sqlite database. "A single click prints daily schedule."

9. Cinnamon Software's Talking Alarm Clock does just what it says with a talking animated alarm, or any sound you choose.

10. Need a cross platform standalone calendar application based on Mozilla's XUL user interface language? Whatever the dickens that is? Well, you guy should go look at Sunbird.


  1. Every two weeks from 1/1/2002

    Memo to self - overhaul website content and examples :-)

    Thanks for the link.

  2. Even if you don't have a Palm Pilot, you can download the Palm Desktop app for free. It's a great little calendar / contact DB / notepad / task list, and my favourite part is that you can run it minimized in the task tray and it'll still pop up alarms for you. To get it, go here.
