The powerfully simple Personal Information Manager
Managing personal information can be tricky if you need a different program to handle contacts, tasks, calendar email and your schedule. EssentialPIM Free can make the job much easier, however.
EssentialPIM Free can securely schedule your day, manage your contacts, keep track of your To Do plans and organize your notes. EssentialPIM's interface is very similar to Outlook, and is clean and well organized. You can use the left sidebar to change between the program's utilities, and all the details are displayed on the right hand side.
The tools included in EssentialPIM Free are easy to use, and have pretty much everything you need to organize your daily work. Schedule displays a calendar with different background colors and symbols that indicate frequency and degree of completion; Notes lets you add notes with pictures, rich-format text, tables and symbols; and with Contacts you can easily keep a list of all your friends and colleagues, with highly customizable information fields.
EssentialPIM Free does feature a large variety of options, but it's only when you take a deeper look that you realize that many of them are only available in the Pro version – which is kind of disappointing.
EssentialPIM Free is a useful application. Sadly only the Pro version has all the great scheduling options.
