Default LaterDude: What do you all think?

Please Login to Remove!

I just downloaded a program from appworld titled LaterDude.

What the program does is remind you to call an individual back within a 5 minutes to 72 hours time frame.

The program is pretty neat. What do you all think?

I like the program but the latest release is "over the top". The program's designer/author, Fabian Heuwieser, started with a simple concept and developed a great little app. But this latest release requires too many steps to used efficiently, IMHO.

It takes at least 6 clicks to get a reminder into your calendar. I'd love to see some of the choices moved to a configuration/options/settings screen, returning the app to its more streamlined and efficient roots.

As the program stands now, I rate it as a "great concept" but ultimately rate the implementation as "poor", and overall, rate the app a #fail. Disappointingly so, but it's a #fail.

I replaced the new with the lest cumbersome v 2.0.51.
