Ease of Use: 
The lowest price: 18$
You can buy it at RegNow for that price.
Gets the job done. Has many features, backgrounds, and options. Easy to use, allows sharing of events over networks.
Parts of the calender are illegible with darker backgrounds. Doesn't look that visually appealing, somewhat clunky.

If you just can't be bothered to go to the store and buy a new calender every year, this program is for you. It has all the "features" you would find on an old-fashioned calender, if not more. Lets you mark events, make new holidays, or add notes. Features fully customizable backgrounds, allowing the user to select from provided images as well as personal images. You can even print out your calender exactly as you see it. One of my favorite features is the ability to share occasions over a network. For business owners, this feature is a lifesaver. This feature allows the events on one calender to be transferred to all other calenders on the same network.
My only problem with this software is the way it looks. One of the things I look for in a calender is the ability to read it, and with some of the backgrounds they provide, I find myself squinting a lot more than I should. Even with lighter backgrounds, the calender looks clunky, and the characters are way too small for the boxes they are in. Considering that most traditional calenders separate the image from the actual calender, you'd be best off with a solid white background.
You may think $18.00 is a bit pricey for such a simple piece of software, but you'd be saving money in the long run. The calender will let you store events up to 2037, so unless you're planning your meals for nearly the next 30 years, this program will save you hundreds of dollars.


Business owners will save time and money with this convenient software. Easy to use, tons of features, worth the price. As far as home use, you might be somewhat disappointed.
