We know that Google Calendar application has a way to set reminder / alarm. However, there are times (well, almost every time) when I forgot to set reminder and I missed it :(.

My question is, is there an application (preferably free, as I don't have CC and Google's Android market doesn't support PayPal, yet) that can help me set defult reminder for every event I have? So that if I forgot to set it on calendar application, this application will help me remind events.

I've already test Calendar Snooze. But, it require me to set an alarm first.

My native calendar app on my Droid 1 running 2.2 has an option to set the default reminder time in the app settings. All my events have this reminder unless I specify otherwise. You can also set this on the web calendar.

You can put a default notification in the web google calendar. (Settings -> calendars -> Notifications).

If you select "popup notification", a notification (with sound) will be launch on your phone too.

All events created in this calendar will have this default notification.

This changes the notification default for events created on the website, but not for events created on the phone. – Nathan Fellman Feb 27 '11 at 9:43
