Remember? Not Forgotten

Send Article to a Friend

Remember? Not Forgotten -- Dave Warker's Remember?, a superbly simple calendar and reminder application that got its start as a desk accessory, has at last migrated to Mac OS X with version 4. Although Remember? doesn't show banners in its calendar for multi-day events, its superb and original interface and flexible reminders make it a welcome alternative to iCal, and at $20 shareware, it's a bargain.
