Hijri Calendar is a lightweight Vista gadget that places a small Islamic calendar on your desktop. It comes in handy for all users who need to date special events, such as the annual fast (Ramadan), attend the Haji, or celebrate other important Islamic festivals.
The calendar displays the current month and lets you access the other months with just a few clicks. What’s more, you are able to view the selected day in a large display.
On the downside, you cannot insert additional notes or comments and set up reminders.
Hijri Calendar doesn’t bundle any configuration settings of its own, and for this reason, even less experienced users can master this gadget with minimum effort.
Other options give you the possibility to make the gadget remain on top of other utilities, move the calendar to any area of the screen, as well as pick the opacity level.
During our testing we have noticed that Hijri Calendar offers good image quality, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process.
As it would be expected from such a small utility, it manages to remain light on the system resources, so it doesn’t burden the overall performance of the computer, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.
To sum things up, Hijri Calendar proves to be a simple desktop enhancement utility that animates the screen by revealing the Hijri lunar calendar. It can be easily configured and installed by all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
