Manage Google Calender From Desktop with GMinder

Google has a free service called Google Calendar where it allows you to manage your time by creating events and notifications. The Google Calender uses AJAX which is very fast and everything seems to take effect instantly without refreshing the page. However if you would prefer a desktop application to manage your Google Calender account right from your desktop without opening your browser and manually logging in, then you can give GMinder a try.

GMinder is a reminder program that waits in your system tray and alerts you when you have an upcoming Google Calendar event. GMinder supports multiple calendars and allows you to configure how you want to be alerted. Since it downloads your events, it works offline and enables you to preview your agenda of events. New events can be added to your Google Calendars using a Quick Add feature.

When an event is starting soon, GMinder will show a reminder window when an event will start and also plays a sound.
