Reviewed Spiffy 0.6.0

It works great, except I only want to be notified when I have a new message in my Gmail inbox. I don't want to be notified of all activity on my G+ account. There is no apparent way to simply turn this feature off, so I am constantly getting... Read full review

Reviewed trakAxPC 5.10.3

Reviewed Classic Start 8

Reviewed AO Reminder 2.2

Demanded that I register after a few days, and when I didn't it shut down and no longer starts up with my OS. It doesn't seem to keep the task alive and continue reminding me until I tell it I have completed the task. When I click the tray balloon... Read full review
