Do you often fail to remember all the important tasks you have to do in a day? How many times were you embarrassed because you forgot your best friend’s birthday? AniReminder Pro is here to prevent all of that and make sure you won’t forget your duties anymore.
Today’s information rush keeps all of us in constant movement and forces us to stay ahead of our competition, as you must always be up to date with the latest news. With an already busy schedule, this might prove to be difficult and it can make you forget about other errands you have to do without even noticing it.
If you’re a sticky note user, your desk is certainly overwhelmed by them, but there is hope. You can use AniReminder Pro, a compact and easy to use application that will surely help you get rid of those old sticky notes and will remind you about important tasks when you need it the most.
The application is very small occupying only 1.85 MB and is released under a Trial license, which means you can try it for free, without any restrictions, for 30 days. If you want to continue using it after the trial period, you can buy it for 19.95$.
The main interface, though not so impressive, contains all the tools you need in order to create and manage your appointments and other important tasks. All your reminders are displayed as a list for quick access and management.
AniReminder Pro allows you to add as many notes as you need without any restrictions, giving you total freedom when it comes to your tasks and duties.
In order to start adding a reminder, just press the Add button. The app enables you to choose from various customization options and set your reminder to suit your needs.
You can set your reminder as a sticker, tray icon, sound, mail message, as program/file call or any combination between them. Each option comes with even more customization possibilities.
With AniReminder Pro you can create a timetable containing all your reminders and tasks not only hourly, daily or weekly, but monthly and yearly too. It’s great, because this way you can plan birthdays, anniversaries, meetings and other activities only once without having to worry about forgetting them.
You can even add a sticker to your reminders with the current date, time, message and animated picture to give a plus of customization and functionality. Opacity, background and frame can also be customized the way you like.
The Mail feature of this application will enhance the usability of your reminders. It allows you to send an email, along with the desired attachments, to multiple addresses when the reminder has reached its deadline. This can be very useful for business owners and project managers to automatically send the desired files at a given time.
The Call program option available in the reminder setup screen completes the list of actions that can be triggered by your reminder. As implied by its name, this will allow you to launch a specific file or program when the reminder occurs.
An archive of your past reminders is kept in order to quickly view or reschedule some of your old tasks without needing to create new ones from scratch. It will provide you with information regarding the type of your reminder and the message it contains for a quick preview that will help you decide to use it or not.
The deleted reminders will not disappear completely; they will be stored in the Trash window, so you won’t need to create new ones if they got accidentally deleted or if you just want to reschedule them. You will thus save the time required to create a new reminder.
Furthermore, the software provides you with the option to save and export your reminders as XML files. This allows you to grab the reminders on your home PC and load them on another computer with AniReminder Pro installed.
A log of all the actions performed by AniReminder Pro is saved every day and can be accessed from the Log tab. This will allow you to track the changes and events you have created or completed in the past days.
As for the configuration of the software, AniReminder Pro can be easily added to your startup programs. Additional options include setting up your mail server details and credentials as well as choosing the working language.The Good
