Pocket Informant is a powerful personal information manager, orPIM, for your Windows Pocket PC. While being fully compatible withMicrosoft Outlook it also offers a much wider range of features. I foundthe program to be very easy-to-use with an intuitive user interface. Itgives you tons of features including a Journal, Notes, Contacts, Tasks,and more. Ireally like the way Pocket Informant works. While it has lotsof power under the hood, the program just purrs along until you need it.It can handle all of your appointments and it handles them with ease. Ireally like the fact that you can drag an appointment from one day anddrop it on another. Because it synchronizes with ActiveSync fromMicrosoft, it's compatible with other programs that are also compatiblewith Outlook. It's the kind of program that has the power ifyou're the kind of user who wants it, but it doesn't get in your way ifyou don't want to use it. If you want to delve into all of the extensivehelp the program has available you'll be amazed at what it can do.

Pocket Informant makes it easy to work with categories,convert task into appointments, manage your time, and so much more.I like the fact that you can view a year, a month, a week, or a day.That calendar items are easily distinguished in color and youcan make the colors how you want them to be. This program is socool, and so powerful, that even I haven't utilized all of the thingsthat it's capable of. It's such an impressive program, however, thatit's not only a Pick, but it's also one of my Dr. File Finder Favorites and those are few and farbetween.

So, if you've been looking for the perfect PIM for you mobile device,youowe it to yourself to check out Pocket Informant. I give it myhighest recommendation!
