    I waited until near the end of this giveaway, to post this info. (For those that missed out on the giveaway)
    If you google for "UK's Kalender" you will find a free program, which is very easy to use.
    I have it set up to fill my screen with a month view Kalender (calendar). It is similar to today's calendar, except UK's fills my whole screen, and it dead simple to use.
    It minimizes to an icon in the Systray(Notification area), and a single click shows the Kalender, and another single click hides it.
    To add a reminder you just right click in any box (in any day), and click 'new'.
    I believe adding a new reminder is easier in Kalender, than it is in today's giveaway.

    This apears to be a subset of one of the other giveaways called Efficcess 5.22 back in 2017 offereing the sections Calendar and Events instead of Calendar, Events, Contacts, Tasks, Diary and Notes and desktop sticky notes.

    While the offer of some free updates is generous compared to normal giveaway limitations it is not quite as stated. The license code we are given was generated on 11th June 2019 so the 1 year of free updates entitlement started THEN not at installation today so the free updates expires on 11th June 2020 just letting you know so you don't make the assumption and set a reminder for 26th August 2020 to do the final update check as on that date your entitlement to free updates will have expired by over two months and if you do force an update at that time your giveaway license will be invalidated with the new version after 11th June 2020 otherwise the useage license is non-expiring.

    Other than that it installs and activates ok and lets you set any name for yourself... I chose "Everyone" because it makes me smile. It sets an autorun entry by default that can be deselected but if you do and do not re-enable it within the program the reminders will not work since it requires the program operating to track reminders and enact them. It does not generate windows task schedular event that launch the program with a reminder hash code to signal when a reminder must be actioned.

    One thing this and all the other similarly designed utilites they make allows is the option to add and remove custom fields for the items in this case events. e.g. you could add an "assignee" for whoever set the reminder and "assigned to" for whever it the action is assigned to. I notice there is a logical GUI inconsistency when viewing events there is a categories field but when adding or editing an existing event there is no categories fieled or drop down selector, turns out one must go into the Edit drop down menu and select "Belongs to categories..." I'm sure they could add another row on the add new and edit wizards forms to make the interface a little more consistant.

    Been using Essential PIM Free, for about a year. A replacement for "Palm Desktop"; not perfect, but capable, and so I'll give this a try.

    This software offer is not leaving me with a good feeling. Below are some very interesting and pertinent questions about the offer and use of this product, yet I see no answers from Efficient Software.

    Obviously, answering serious questions would demonstrate the author's pride and commitment to his product. With no shortage of diary and scheduling type products available on the market, why would I choose one that I have to learn by trial and error?

    Hopefully the authors are just off to a late start today!

    I wouldn't be too barfed about the year. Eff SW offers their program a couple times a year either here of the other free sites. Then you can get their updated version that usually picks up existing app's settings and good to go for another version round. For me the one year (set by them) is ok since who needs an app not maintained - so that lovely XP thing is working anymore on Windows 10 x64 Pro, well rat burgers but hey how slick is this new one for just Win 10. YRMV but knocking the devs is fruitless.

    Been using an older scheduler but Eff SW looking lot cleaner in layout times. My current (years older) has a funky way of mixing up the monthly fields, they often overlap in confusing way and I end up using the day of July or Sept during Aug input timeframe.
    Have to see how it goes. This has several extra bells whistles that may never use. Current one is just set, add any recurrent, and done. Pops up in variety of ways each week. This one appears similar just have to relearn navigating its ways.
    Once you use one of these chore savers they are a must have.
    Thanks Eff SW & GOTD.

    I've tried a couple of this company's apps, and IMO they make some very nice software. I avoid subscriptions, so I won't be downloading this one.

    The related app has a 2.1 rating (poor) and was last updated over a year ago. Why would someone pay for this program when there are so many cloud based services available that are free and updated often?

    Reply   |   Comment by Kyle  –  22 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+9)

    Kyle, just because I don't like and don't trust ANY cloud based solutions, no matter how good they seem to be. Sorry.

    Reply   |   Comment by Mario  –  22 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

    Kyle, I guess because some people, like me, don't trust the Cloud.

    Reply   |   Comment by JonE  –  22 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

    Kyle, ever wondered why cloud based services are free? It's not because they are advert based but it is because you give them private personal data every time you use them and they monetise that in every way they can think of to fund the service and make a profit out of you. It is not really free unless it is on your machine alone and never shares your data with any commercial or governmental entity and still is free. Or lets you run your own micro-cloud off your own fibre internet conection and is properly secured with no backdoor access to the developer or their affilates or partners.

    I have tried various {Reminder} software. They all differ. The most important thing about such Reminder software is the User Interface. If the User Interface suits you and is to your liking, then go for it. I think this software UI is quite good. It must be intuitive to use. And yet not so basic as to be practically useless.
    It must not be too complex.
    It must NOT offer all kinds of nonsensical "Connection to the Cloud" website of the software developer; whereupon it becomes a Revenue Generating Income Centre. Users then are encouraged to PAY a monthly $$$ fee to use and maintain this "Connection to the Cloud".
    You can see Systems Backup software going down that route .... to Make More MONEY.
    Especially Acronis which has denegerated from a top rated software to an unmitigated disaster.

    It says it has a 1-Year update license to the latest version in 1 year. Can you still continue to use it after that, or will you have to buy a license at some point in the future?

    Reply   |   Comment by Mike  –  22 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

    Mike, in the product description it is stated :
    If you still want to update after one year, you need to renew your code
    For me, this means that after one year, if I still want to update, I must purchase a new license.
    So this GAOTD and Efficient Software offer with one year of updates is a much better than the normal ones, that do not allow ANY update.

    Reply   |   Comment by Mario  –  22 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

    Mike, sure can keep using. The description pretty clear as these things go. Some freebies just say good for Updates only during current version run so if you get v 2.50 usually the updates available (for years ahead if needed) until maybe 3.xx arrives. Then it still works usually after a popup reminder that updates support ended w/ this version. (best kind offer a reminder then to not try an update or 'may' lose the current version & app itself). Worse kind just knock out you working freebie, but that's less common now.

    Mike, Yup! That's the main purpose of GOTD; use the software, for Free, for a period of time and if you like it, you buy it.

    Mike, to date all efficeint software giveaways have been above and beyond standard giveaway terms. They all have had a non-expiring usage license with a year of free updates thrown in and in the about panel it states the license start date and the free updates expiry date quite clearly. no subdifuge here. This is an honest to goodness real giveaway of their current and future product unlike the other giveaway on offer today that is for and obsolete abandonded version whose license will not unlock the currently sold version. It is understandable that visitors have come to distrust most giveaway terms now since giveawayoftheday.com has permitted so many fake giveaways in the recent past. But sometimes there are vendors that do play by the rules and even offer more too!

    It says the license is only good until 6/11/2020, purchase date 6/11/2019

    Dave, Now, why would anyone want to be dishonest on this site??

    I read this as American dating -- ie. 11th June -- when of course it's already 26th August.

    Which means of course, the claim of 12 months is nonsense -- it's only nine and a bit.

    Which is more than strange. It's well... dishonest?

    Tranmontane, I think I know what is going on with this date. This was last offered some place in June for version 5.22, which I had installed, but have forgotten. When I tried to install this one, is said that I already had the folder on my HD. Opened it used the same license provided in here, it updated to this same 5.60 version, but retained the June 11 date. Then I uninstaled it using Revo so no sign of the software would apear on my system anymore. Installed again, entered the license again, but, June 11 is still there.
    SO, I guess that they are re-runnig the same old offer, once that it can be updated, but the first due date is still there, which is June 11, 2020.
