Slife 2.0 unveiled

Slife Labs has debuted Slife 2.0, the latest evolution of of its time and activity management software for Mac OS X. Released in conjunction with Slife Teams, a subscription-based collaborative web service, the Slife software package provides a solid platform for 'time-based' workers such as designers and consultants to keep track of productivity, eliminating reliance on time-sheets or spreadsheet applications.

Extensively rewritten to take advantage of the latest technologies in OS X 10.5, version 2.0 builds on Slife's user tracking technology that records how long a user spends in an extensive range of applications (including iChat, Firefox, Keynote, Skype, and Omni Outliner) over a set period of time; it also introduces a 'simpler, cleaner user interface', six enhanced activity analysis 'visualizations', extensive privacy controls, and productivity management features.

In addition, version 2.0 also brings 'goal and objective setting' to the table, with visual notification of deadlines and the visual tracking of personal progress towards preset productivity levels.

Slife Teams works in conjunction with Slife 2.0, adding a multi-user element similar in concept to 'calendar sharing' in Apple's iCal and allowing users able to distribute their Slife 2.0 data to a 'lightweight' subscription-based central web application to allow group progress and tracking by other team members.

The software requires a G4-, G5- or Intel-based Mac with 512MB or more of RAM, Mac OS X 10.5 or later, and an up-to-date web browser. Slife 2.0 is available free of charge, while Slife Teams is currently only available as part of an 'invite-only' pre-release (but Slife invites users to contact them directly for an invite).
