Task Reminder is a small, simple and effective tool to remind about regular tasks – such as backing up your computer or calling your parents.

The Windows Desktop Application has been designed to be user-friendly and easy to use with touch-screen devices. Task Reminder pops up if there are any open tasks - if all tasks are completed, you won’t be bothered until they are due again.

Task Reminder is freeware and comes without adware, user tracking or liability. By using this program, you accept the license agreement Creative Commons License.
