Total task recall
CuteReminder Labs‘ professional edition of its Windows 98/ME/2000/XP program for management of personal notes and reminders improves upon the standard version. With CuteReminder, when you need to set up a reminder while editing a document, you need only click twice: the first click will open a dialog and the second click will set the time and close the dialog. Reminder tabs don’t interfere with the current work, so you can continue typing without obstacles.
