ForgetNot!: Reminder App With Desktop Notifications & Pre-Event Alerts


If you find it hard to keep an eye on your tasks, events and other schedules, or may feel regretful of missing your sweetheart’s birthday every year, then worry no more, as ForgetNot! will keep a record of all your important events and tasks. You can set as many reminders as you want in the application’s built in reminder database, and the program will keep notifying you of all upcoming events using alarm and notifications. You may also set as many number of events as you like, such as birthdays, weddings, business meetings, concerts, travel times and what not. This is quite a simple and easy to use utility. Please note that this program is Java-based so you will need to have java installed in your computer.

ForgetNot! has a minimalistic and simple interface. Opening the application shows you a reminder database. There are four different buttons to set the reminders (New, Modify, Duplicate and Delete). All your reminders are shown on reminder database, and you can sort out the order according to your preferences.

ForgetNot! Reminder Database

To add a new event, click New to open reminder entry console. Here, you can select the reminder’s icon, day and month, as well as add the starting year of the reminder, though it is optional. You can also set the reminder’s recurrence time, which is used to set a reminder of the event you have set, displaying a notification of the upcoming reminder prior to its actual date. It’s a pretty neat feature which can help to reschedule all your tasks in case you forget about the reminder you may have set earlier. You can set the number of recurrences, the year and the amount of time you want to be reminded before the occurrence. After all is set, just put the name of the reminder in the <empty> field and click Ok.

New Entry

You can also modify the reminder anytime you want, and if you want to repeat a reminder multiple times or at some later date, you may duplicate it. After your reminders are in place, a small notification appears on your desktop to keep reminding you of your tasks from time to time, though you may snooze it any time you want.

ForgetNot Notification
