A memo can be attached to any date. The first three lines of the memo are displayed in the date's tooltip. Memos are saved as files.

Calendar files (iCal files) can be imported and managed. When enabled and selected, calendar events appear in the dates' tooltips.

Files, texts and URLs may be dragged onto a memo window or onto a calendar date. The dragged text is appended to the text already in the memo window.

The Widget can speak the selected date when a memo is opened and can speak the contents of memos.

Various types of single or repeating alarm events can be associated with calendar dates.
