Ok, I'll give it 5 - At first I was going to give this app 4 stars because there's no real pizazz, but then I realized how ridiculous that is. This app does exactly what you would think it should and stays out of your way. iCal was closed when I created my first event. I opened iCal and BOOM...it was there. If an app does what it says, aids you in your workflow and stays out of the way the rest of the dang time it deserves 5 stars. BOOM!
freezing - My computer was freezing every time I started it up until I removed this application from the menu bar.

It creates an 'appointment' all right, but not a 'reminder'! Will become obsolete soon... - It used to be a good app when macs (and iPhones/iPods) had only Calendar. With the new "Reminders" app in all iOS5 devices - and a Reminders section in iCal in OSX Lion and a whole new Reminders app in OS X Mountain Lion - this app now feels insufficient. Using Remind Me Later to remind me to "Buy groceries at 4 PM" or "Call Joe" is really a Reminder in my opinion, but what this app does is it creates an 'appointment' in iCal. "Meet Joe at 4 PM at Starbucks" is an appointment. It lacks a system of telling it to create an Appointment (in iCal) vs Reminder. And a connected issue: Even the Calendars - its shows Calendar List and Reminder List (also referred to as Calendar) but if you pick the latter, it gives an error when creating the entry.
Simple and configurable - Very simple handy tool. Also has some useful preferences, like setting the default calendar. I have it set to go to a different default calendar than my iCal default calendar, so I use this "Remind Me Later" app to add to my "To Do" calendar. I prefer to put a short list of important projects/ tasks inside my iCal calendar as an event (with a different color) because they take time, I only want to list of few key things for the day, and I prefer that over the reminders list that can get too long anyway … Other useful preferences: hot key, default event length, default alarm type and setting.
Best free alternative to Fantastical - I was really into the idea of Fantastical but at $50 it seemed a bit outrageous. This does exactly what I want it to do (add events to calendar without having ot open iCAl) quickly and reliably. The one feature I’d like to see added is the ability to switch calendars without opening preferences.
Useful but *very* slow - It’s great to be able to create events with fewer clicks, but it happens in slow motion with this little app. Whatever I type appears seconds later. It’s also silly that you can’t create an event simply by clicking on the icon. You click on the icon, which drops down a menu, and then you select “Remind Me Later”. Why add an extra step when the goal is to make everything simpler?
stupid simple. - i always open ical then post an event…only to close ical two seconds later. love it. no need to open and close ical.
