What’s missing are a few of the subtleties that help us get through the day as humans. Take snooze. Please. Calendar events get a 15-minute snooze function. Sometimes it’s perfect, sometimes it’s not enough, sometimes it’s too much. Where do you get more granular controls over snooze? From SnoozeMaster.
The Master of Snooze
This is functionality that Apple could build into Calendar or Reminders with little effort, but for whatever reason they leave such functionality to third party app developers (and when they get it just right, Apple often steals it).
SnoozeMaster is just such a utility, minus the stolen part. This neat little add-on utility lives in the Mac’s Menubar and gives you granular controls over the snooze in Calendar and Reminders.
You can snooze with an on-the-fly user chosen snooze duration. Or, set a user definable snooze list. SnoozeMaster is so good it even lets you snooze from now, snooze before an event starts, snooze it before it ends, as well as after an event starts or ends.
SnoozeMaster works best if you open System Preferences, select Notification, then Calendar and Reminders and set the default alerts to None. That way you won’t be burdened with too many pop up alerts on the Mac’s screen.
Easy peasy, right?
SnoozeMaster gives Mac users just a bit more control over the snooze option in Calendar and Reminders. The only negative has to do with the type of Calendar events where permissions can become a problem, such as a shared calendar .ics file, but that can be overcome by setting it again within Calendar.
SnoozeMaster is priced right and aimed at Mac users who utilize Calendar and Reminders but end up using the snooze option more often than planned.
