Everyone needs to keep their life organized and any tool that can help with this is to be welcomed. One such piece of software is EssentialPIM which has just been updated to version 5.0 and the headline new feature here is synchronization with both iOS and Android devices – a companion Android app is available for download from Google Play, while an iOS app is expected in the App Store in the near future. But this is not the only new feature in this handy PIM which bears quite a resemblance to Microsoft Outlook.
The app can be used to manage your contacts, calendars, email accounts, notes, passwords and much more. Available in Free, Portable and Pro varieties, the program has been updated to include support for multiple SMTP servers as well as the ability to configure an unlimited number of identities in the mail component.
A slightly re-designed interface means that it is now possible to open several dialog simultaneously thanks to the fact that most windows are now independent from the main program window. To make it easier to navigate between contacts, a new letters bar has been added, and message starring makes it easier to highlight emails you would like to be reminded of in the future.
The Pro version of the program includes a range of extra features and additions that are not found in the Free edition. This includes new templates for creating todo lists and appointments, and a new one-way synchronization option with Outlook. When a one-way sync is performed with Outlook, WebDAV, Google or another online service, there is now the option to choose between removing or leaving items that do not match in both locations.
