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.
If you find yourself using Google Calendar too much (not me, definitely not me) then Gminder can be a good companion when trying to remember events. Gminder will download your Calendar's events and will warn you when they are coming up, it can manage multiple calendars on a same account and it even includes the ability to add new events into Google Calendar by just typing them. The app worked well for me for the most part however sometimes it crashed, something to do with the .NET framework. Also if you have a non english version of Windows XP you will have to choose a new sound for the alarm since Gminder points to a non existent file by default.
Anyway for all of you that use Google Calendar give this portable app a shot, even with the problems i have mentioned i feel the program is fully usable, who knows you might end up liking it. Available for all versions of Windows.
