A portable version of the personal organizer
- Simple and easy to use
- Clear, intuitive design
- Customizable modules
- Manage calendar, to-do lists, contacts and notes in one program
- Password protection
- No installation required, runs from a USB key
- The best tools are available only in the Pro version
EssentialPIM Portable manages your personal information without leaving any traces on your system, as you can run it directly from your USB memory device.
EssentialPIM Portable can securely schedule your day, manage your contacts, keep track of your To Do plans and organize your notes. EssentialPIM Portable'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 Portable 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 Portable 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 Portable is a useful application but it loses some of its attraction when you discover some of its options are only available in the Pro version.
- Maintenance release for the EssentialPIM 3.7x series that focuses on improving overall stability of the application. Many email and to do related issues were fixed, some of which are Japanese and Chinese localized Windows versions related.
