Easy to use personal organizer app offers the right amount of features.
Finding the perfect organizational app isn't nearly as cut-and-dried as it sounds. For most users, it's a matter of well-designed features and aesthetics, but a large part of it boils down to personal preference. Some users prefer simple organizer apps with a few core features, while others tend to prefer feature-heavy, robust apps. In an effort to help you find the perfect day-planning app for you, we sat down with InFocus Pro by Elixir Software Group, an app aimed at helping you organize your projects and activities.
Train yourself to live a better lifestyle with a little help
They say it takes 21 days to make a good habit or break a bad one, which seems simple enough. Logically, most people should be able to clear the three week hurdle with little effort. However, most of us can get a little absent-minded, especially when we get busy. That's why Habits Pro, by Track & Share Apps, exists -- to help people stay on task in their quest for self-improvement.
Forthcoming app very bare-bones, gesture-centric
UK-based RealMac Software, known for titles like Rapidweaver and Little Snapper, will be releasing a new to-do app in the next few weeks called Clear. The app is a collaboration with MacHeist organizer Phill Ryu, engineer Milen Dzhumerov and artist David Lanham, and puts an iPhone-centric, gesture-oriented but minimalist spin on the idea of a to-do list, focusing on visual design rather than excessive features.
Notes adds widescreen view, Organizer gets CardDAV
Chronos has launched two new updates this week, releasing v9.0 for both SOHO Notes and SOHO Organizer. SOHO Notes is a note-taking app that allows the user to capture, store and share digital images, voice recordings, videos, web archives and PDFs. Version 9.0 adds a widescreen view that presents the notes in a cascading column style, allowing users to quickly browse notes without having to open them.
Sidekick generates web collections, adds mobility
Bare Bones has updated its information organizer, Yojimbo 2.2. The software stores information across numerous filetypes, like PDFs, images, web archives, rich text notes, bookmarks and both passwords and serial numbers. It uses tags, collections and labels for fast organization and also supports search, browse and Spotlight searches. It supports MobileMe for syncing multiple computers to its data. It has a quick input command for note taking and an on-screen drop box tab supporting drag and drop.
New version has auto filing, updated interface
Ironic Software has released an update to its document management software, Yep 2.0. The utility provides document organization tools geared for small businesses and individuals. Users can also create new documents by simply dragging text into the interface. Yep supports tagging and works independently of a database, using the Mac's Spotlight, Quick Look and Time Machine technologies to track documents regardless of their specific location.
