Big Event Reminder

Purchased this program downloaded it and nothing. Deleted program and reinstalled and still nothing. Sent two emails to publisher without a reply. Have asked Apple for a refund.

Very buggy. Unusable

Bought and installed in on MacBookPro running 10.13.6 (High Sierra).

In short it didn’t work at all. Sticking or empty menus. Windows that I could not dismiss. And when I did finally get a test event set up, at the alarm time the app just spontaneously closed down instead of showing any alarm at all, not to mention a big one.

This is the last type of app you would expect to be unreliabe.

finally, important stuff will not be missed

Looking for this kind of feature quiet a while, simple but useful: truly can reminder you for some big event for you. Tried multi other ways, it always not "big" eough to wake you from busy daily life.
Like it, give 5 star!
