RedDay is a StartUp reminder application. You enter in a list of events and days and on startup it will display any event due "Today" or "Tomorrow" by scrolling text across the program section of the taskbar. (You must, unlike me, leave your taskbar in the default horizontal setting for this to work.)

If this sounds like a great thing to you then stop reading. Otherwise I really have to say that I do not like this program. For reasons such as a lack of an icon for the main program, a font button that didn't work, and most of all, how it makes itself run at start-up by default. While I agree that the program isn't much use if it does not automatically run, there should at least be a choice; there is no way to turn off this, other than uninstalling the program. But other than these reasons I simply feel that there are many much more capable programs available in its class.

However the author(s) should be commended for fixing a minor problem that I noticed within a day. You will not get this kind of service from a big company!
