That’s what makes MenuMinder so special. First of all, it’s free. Second, it’s a mashup of Menubar and Reminder. In other words, you get reminded of events by creating alarms or alerts with a click to the Mac’s Menubar.
Feature Laden, Still Free
What sets MenuMinder apart from most reminder or alert and alarm apps isn’t the price. Quite a few are free, including Apple’s own Reminders app.
MenuMinder is free but not light on features. In fact, it’s actually heavily laden with useful features.
For example, let me run down the list. MenuMinder comes with three types of reminders. Alert pop up windows. Email messages. SMS text messages.
Preferences are extensive and this is where you setup the alert actions but not the reminders. Reminders are created from the Menubar.
All reminders can be viewed with a click to the Menubar, including the alarm time, the reminder message, and the date the reminder was created.
Wait. There’s more.
MenuMinder can print out a list of all the reminders and sync with Calendar. A reminder is not only an alarm, but each reminder can be assigned a task.
Tasks can open a website URL in your browser, play a song from iTunes, open a file, or launch a specific application.
I don’t recall having an app with such extensive preferences that are actually fun to setup and use. Why is this app free? It’s an absolute bargain.
