    I think this might just be the perfect application to organise my life. I use the system tray calendar to check days & dates anyway, so I think this may be ideal!

  • Ruchir Bansal

    Thanks very much for the key Mr. Nakodari.I am not fond of contests but Addictivetips is something I am fond of and so broke my own rules.There is some flavor in this site so that content is interesting and most useful,nothing like this site.What Mr. Nakodari,Asif,Usman endorse is what Download.com does but much much later.And the contestants were less in no. only bcoz contest was somewhat difficult for some,otherwise everybody I am sure visits daily or reads RSS or Email feeds.I don’t see a beauty of a site full of knowledge and usefulness other than this.
    In any case Addictivetips is one of the very best Tech sites and I wish that remains forever.

    • Thanks for your nice remarks Ruchir. It is our readers like you who motivate us to continue writing awesome articles daily. And yes, thousands of readers check our website daily, so I will make sure the next contests are easy.

    Re: Clock-on-tray Giveaway.

    OK, I counted 8 people including myself that did EXACTLY what was required for this giveaway, plus one more who shared the wrong link post warning about which link to share from the site at 11.24.

    There should have been 10 winners, but I’ve not been contacted about a registration key and I don’t understand why not – is anyone else in the same boat as me?

    • Keys were distributed to everyone who commented. After checking my email history, I failed to find your email address. For some reason you were left behind. I have send the keys to you, please check your mail!

      • Digital Guru

        No problem for the omission, I was beginning to think I had mis-understood the competition!

        Thank you very much for this great little app, I now have the key code in the email.

        Keep up the excellent work – adictive tips rocks!
