11/15/2014 Updated to version 5.0.2 to be compatible with Yosemite and bug fixes.

2/19/2014 If you want to use the old version 1.5, you can download version 1.5. But again, this version has issues for Mavericks but I recommend it if you are running older versions of Mac OS. Requires you to have already purchased a version from Mac App store for it to run.

2/12/2014 New version 2.5 is out. Bug fixes. Please update

1/28/2014 New version 2.1 is out. Fixes for Mavericks and new features including voice reading of your event name aloud (in case you are away from computer), yearly reminders, and hourly reminders by x hour(s). Thank you again for your support. If you encounter errors, please try these steps here
