EssentialPIM Halloween offer
Just popping in quickly to say that EssentialPIM are offering free licences to the Pro version today only – 31 October 2005.
I’ve been using the free version for months now (having tried oodles of free/cheap organiser, diary softwares) but this is the one that’s stayed on my desktop and actually gets used, along with Microsoft OneNote. ‘Course I don’t often get done the things on the To Do list but that’s not the fault of the software. I just need a good kick up the arse.
Why is this software so good?
- It’s free
- It’s very easy to use
- It stores everything you could possibly want to store (text, pictures, links)
- You can import contacts etc. from Outlook (not just on installation)
- Includes 128-bit encryption on password protected files (I haven’t tested this yet)
- You can view (and print) your schedule by day/week/month or year
- Notes are stored in a tree hierarchy and you have lots of formatting tools (colour, font, etc.)
- Did I mention that it’s free?
Better than a list of features, take a look at the screenshots.
So how does it work? You download the Pro version, enter your name, email address and country (you’ll have to select “Not applicable” for “State” if you select a country other than the U.S.) and the registratation key will be emailed to you in 48 hours (but you can go ahead and start using the software right away).
Is it worth upgrading from Free to Pro? Absolutely!
[Later addition: Apologies to Maccies and other OS users, this is for Windows only.]

Well I didn’t miss it, I was there at the crack of dawn on the 31st to download my Pro version but I’ve not been sent a registration key either. I wonder if it’s because I was already on the mailing list so couldn’t register my email address on the day? Judging by the support forums quite a few people missed out too. Shame. Ah well.

Oh dear. I don’t suppose it’s any consolation that I got a free key? :-(
