Problem with Cute Reminder - My daughter and I each have our own computers on a common home network. I downloaded from GOTD, had a play and loved it. Told daughter and she also downloaded it onto her computer. Now if both computers are online the program complains that it is already running (on the other computer)and won't let you do anything. Looks like this program "Phones home" or at least looks at the net every time you try to use it.

Very odd - did exactly the same on two computers on the same network here, and no probs. at all.

I've tried a lot of these over the years, including this one, and they ALL run poorer than what I had on an obsolete PowerMac running OS9
So, for Windows, the best I've found yet are old standbys Floating Words, and NotesHolder Lite

I had this before from an earlier giveaway and liked the way it worked. Didn't use up a lot of precious memory. Alas it quit working one day. Good to have a chance to run it again, maybe it will continue to work this time?

I installed the original setup file twice (both normal and as admin), since GOTD setup always fail to launch with me, and the sw installed normally but clicking on the shortcut does not do anything. Except, windows problem reporting script wants to connect to the internet. Troubleshooting did not give any results either. Win 7/66 HE. Uninstalled as this software is apparently too old and thus useless for me. Pity.

after reading the comments about the older styled interface, I had hopes that this application would be accessible, the install and registration screens were mainly so, I had to use an alternative cursor (I have access to 5 different ones with my screen reader) ah well at least I could get to and read them, but after restarting it with the registration in, *sigh* other than those I already mentioned and the shortcut on my desktop no dice, can't even find that control nodule it speaks of.

ah well

I understand that you also cannot launch the program. I had the same problem but remembering a few similar instances with other software which needed that, I added this programs' exe file to the DEP list and now it is working with me, so my comment below (22) is no longer valid. Thanks GOTD.

"And yes, some would say it’s old, some would call it mature."

Unlike those who refuse to even try software that hasn't been updated within the past week, I believe "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". Not updated in a year? or five years? That may just mean they got it right back then and no updates were necessary.

I agree sync with mobile devices is not compulsory. So what if it does not?
I agree ease of use is paramount.
I do NOT allow this software to auto load on Windows boot up.
I am still trying to figure out the difference between an Idea and a Note that this software implements.
I dislike the way the software starts, with a pop up reminder on right hand side and a blank note pad. With the program controls on a sliding panel hidden inside right hand edge of screen.
Every time, you have wait for hidden panel to slide out in order to click on "Control Centre" to display the proper meaningful working interface.
So troublesome. This cannot be changed.
There are many competing freeware reminder utilities.
I will be uninstalling this after leaving this comment, because it is too much trouble for me to make a simple reminder to myself.

I've been using Notezilla from Conceptworld for several years now and consider it the best and most useful notes software. It's not free but you can try it for a month.

I don't understand why this download (zip file) is 12 meg and the developer's site the download is 2.87 meg exe file.
What is it that GATD is not telling us. And using "regshot" seems to be an excellent idea. And alway use Revo Uninstaller
Pro to get rid of the leftover files.

Hi all!

A few words from the developer reflecting on some substantial parts of the comments. Thanks all for those.

Cute Reminder did not experience any substantial modifications since 2008 or so, that's correct. It was under quite an active development before that, however, it was never a goal to integrate each and every feature requested by the users, - we wanted to keep it quick and simple while providing most important functions. And the main gauge here was (and is) the own experience from its everyday use throughout more than 10 years already. And yes, some would say it's old, some would call it mature.

Synchronization with other devices and online calendars is not there and won't be there for various reasons, to name a few: (1) there are decent cross-platform solutions for that out there and we do not want to reinvent the wheel; (2) a synchronization would mean storage of user data on an online server and we do not want to keep user data; (3) using third-party online servers and their respective APIs is unreliable as these APIs might be (and in fact were) discontinued at some point and we do not want our users to be exposed to that risk.

And yes, the user interface could be flattened and made pale to look more modern, but it's a matter of taste and many are against that if it becomes too impractical. You can customize many colors in the user interface of Cute Reminder as a relief to the problem.

Now you can blame me for what I'll say, but there is a philosophy behind Cute Reminder and it's quite unique. It postulates (and implements) only three things: (1) make it as easy as possible for a user to create a reminder and also to postpone it; (2) do not fiercely distract a user from what s/he is currently doing when a reminder pops up; and (3) do distract a user if s/he asked for that. Beyond that core, all the rest in Cute Reminder are just additional features including the side panel that many users like (you can use hot keys instead in Professional Edition).

Cute Reminder allows you to create reminders and notes - as many tens if not hundreds of applications do - there is nothing extraordinary about that, and you can blame me again for what I'll say, but the big difference comes from how it does that.

We might give away also Professional (and Enterprise) Edition through GOTD sometime should they deem it to the benefit of you - GOTD users.

Thank you for the giveaway CuteReminder Labs/Dev. and GOTD. I like you message because you are honest and not bragging in your exprimation: "It is what it is, and is working just fine like this!" :)

The Pro edition looks even better with those options but the Standard one is not too limited in features, which is good.

Maybe, for the sync option(s), that some of the GOTD Community members mentioned before, could you make some addons to be added with that option, maybe one addon for each sync service, you consider to? And so, let each and every user, take the "risk" in using those APIs etc. Also, like this, from time to time, new addons appear and the software looks "still in development" or even better, "it is so well made, that whatever new addons for (new) services we create, it still works good."

Thank you for the giveaway! Have a great day!

PS: Thank you all for your comments, especially to: XP-Man, Karl, Jahid etc. ... I only whished Ashraf and Giovanni would still be with us.

I love this software :~)
Colourful, cheerful, no stupid ribbon interfaces, extremely lightweight, and doesn't require my spending ages linking in to all sorts of other calendars and stuff to make it work.
This is the sort of thing that should just be on a computer when you buy it, built into the desktop........

Yes, 'AtNotes' has been "discontinued", as of 5/30/2005, meaning the program is no longer being developed, HOWEVER, it IS still available for download at: [http://atnotes.free.fr/download.html]. It is a very worthy vintage app. I have used this program for many,many years on different computers. Another, great 'post it note' type program, with more capabilities is "Stickies". I actually use both, (for different type notes).

I thought I was the only one still using ATNotes - I have it running fine on Win 7 64 bit. Although old, it was written so well that it is still going strong. People should try it, it is only text and not "multimedia", but it has alarms to pop the note up with a sound, hid the note until, delete note at date/time, even search of notes and it's really easy to use. (Type in note and right click on it to set alarm) You can have the note a set size, or automatically rezier itself so it only takes up the minimal amount of screen.

I've always thought of this kind of "sticky note" software as too touchy-feely for me.

I usually just write myself a plain old text document if I want to remember something. And I definitely think this software is way over-priced. The "Standard Edition" is $30 and the "Enterprise Edition" is $60! Who would pay that much for a 2008-era sticky notes program?

I appreciate the free version offered here, but I would never buy something like this.

Although i like this software, and i really like a reminder software. I like the part where i could jot
down ideas and reminders.
I really don't the idea of this software contacting its website in order to register the copy.
This was given before too, i could not use it, because of its activation process.
I am uninstalling too.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system. A clean install.
With 27 changes, like most of the "clean installs" ... http://i.imgur.com/pDV2HGp.png

A company without name and address. Sometimes I oversea this information. Sorry. But I expect this in an "About" statement.

Be careful. This is a historical rarity. The software is from 2008, the latest timestamps March 2008, the other files are from 2004 to 2006.

So is the window after start. Old fashioned, too much colors, a programmer at play.
http://i.imgur.com/ehA3iUv.png

On the lower right side of the screen, there is a tray. From here you can call a new "idea" or a new "reminder" or the "control center".

In a short test, it does what it claims - it was surely a modern software around 2006. Nowadays I expect synchronization with calenders, with other devices.

Have a test, maybe it fits exactly your needs - if you don't use any calender tasks - and it fits into your XP design.

Uninstalled via reboot.

Thanks for the great information.

I agree with Lofty. In a former life, I was a Microsoft Access application developer. I used my own menu scheme to completely control my application. When Office 2007 came out with the dreaded Ribbon, it blew up my software. There was no way to hide the Ribbon. This ruined the security of the system. Not to mention the appearance.

Thanks GOTD for your offerings and for the great comments of my fellow members.

Duane & lofty.
Sadly you are so right, makes you wonder if anyone at Microsoft actually uses their products.
Skype has become an utter monster recently, file transfers are so hit and miss, and the interface could hardly be worse.
You would think they would take some pointers from Android or Apple, hopefully their new man in charge will change things, fingers crossed.
Regshot is certainly one of the best at intercepting changes to the registry without too much superfluous information, but remember a developer can add much more information as the program is being used, that is unless he is kind enough to use INI files.

For those that already use the excellent freeware program System Explorer, it has a Snapshot Module that can compare registry and/or file changes.

Apart from using that program to compare what an installed program does to a system, a weekly snapshot can help as a reference to manually fix any minute registry changes before considering a registry restore, partial system restore, or full system restore solution.
