New Chronos products
today announced the forthcoming release of two new products: SOHO Organizer and SOHO Notes for Mac OS X Tiger. SOHO Organizer, the successor to Personal Organizer and Group Organizer, is designed to help small office and home office (SOHO) users easily manage their customer relationships (phone calls, notes, appointments, to-dos, etc.). Completely rewritten in Cocoa, it features an Aqua interface, Unicode compliance, built-in spell checking, Mac OS X Services support, and integration with Address Book and iCal. SOHO Notes is described as the "first and only" networkable note manager; it can be used to store and share miscellaneous info within a hierarchy of folders, with various levels of read/write access as well as instantly sync info from laptops or remote clients (using .Mac). Both can be used as a single-user or workgroup database-driven application with encrypted communication.
Official launch dates and pricing for SOHO Organizer and SOHO Notes were not available at press time, but both products will be "forthcoming soon." Users who purchase Personal or Group Organizer after May 1st, 2005 will be eligible to upgrade to SOHO Organizer for free. The company also said that 30-day trials of each application will be available when the applications are officially released.
