A handy small app for Google Calendar reminder
Owl Reminder can connect your Google Calendar and provide desktop notification for events.
Compared with existing solutions it has several advantages:
- Instant push notification while most other solutions use infrequent polling which can have long delay.
- Caches events offline so reminder still works even if there is no internet connection.
- A simple to-do list kind of UI with snooze and dismiss buttons. People can use it as simple task management tool.
- Supports rich notification with snooze, location and hangout buttons for extra convenience.
