Best organizer

I am using EPIM pro for a long time and it comes as the best organizer to me. I really appreciate the task management efficiencies of the software. Overall feels great using the tool. Thanks to coders and EPIM support team!

Pros

EssentialPIM keeps my work schedule perfectly organised and help in keeping all my contacts in one place without mess. I like the way it keep particulars sorted.

Cons

Little glitches I found while synchronization Still seeking for the new version for more assistance.

Pros

easy to learn, easy to set up. very fast when searching for information

it would be useful to have multiple columns in the notes section. that is multiple columns for each note

Reasons for switching to EssentialPIM

EPIM continues to update their product, it already has more features. EPIM customer support response is excellent

Satisfied user.

Pros

EssentialPIM offered an interface close to the one I have used for nearly 30 years with an integration to a portable device that offers a comprehensive synchronization package. I make extensive use of linking related entries which makes finding what needs to be found much easier.

Cons

It does not have a quote of the day feature, that I came to enjoy with the Franklin Planner. I still have the Franklin Planner software installed, so I can restart the module for the current day quote if desired.

Reasons for choosing EssentialPIM

After reviewing personal information manager product reviews periodically, EssentialPIM offered an interface that worked in an intuitive manner.

Reasons for switching to EssentialPIM

I'm using EssentialPIM as a replacement for the Franklin Planner system that I used from 1990-2020. EssentialPIM put my planning capacity back as a portable option after the Franklin Planner abandoned the Palm Pilot/MSAccess interface.

Top notepad + task manager !!!

Using it more than 2years already, and used to it. Very good helper in my daily life.

Pros

Notes, really helpful, use it daily to store different kinds of information from simple notes, guides to full web pages & pdf documents. Tasks - using them to track project progress.

Cons

Impossible to make a periodic backup to cloud server (like google, onedrive etc.) for whole DB file. There is a built in support for dropbox, but it's mechanism to save DB every time when you open/close app is very bad, coz it takes a lot of time to sync & upload my DB, coz its not a smallest one...

A solid alternative to Outlook

It keeps my work and email organised and also allows me to keep detailed notes.

Pros

It goes beyond what outlook offers and at a better price.

Cons

The mobile app tends to be buggy, at least with my devices

Reasons for choosing EssentialPIM

Although free Thunderbird was buggy making using it more of a pain.

Reasons for switching to EssentialPIM

Outlook was too expensive.
