Spb Diary, by Spb Software Houseis a slick "Today" plug-in that performs a wide range of functions. Itwon the Shareware Industry Award in the "Best PDA Program orUtility" category. It really helps keep things organized and withouttaking up a lot of real estate on the screen. The program offersmultiple tabs for Notes, Calendar, Messages, Contacts, and Tasks. Really very handy because you can collapse all of them or expand them,as needed. So, in a sense you're really getting 5 different plug-ins foryour Today screen.

Spb Diary is very easy-to-use and has an intuitive user interface. Try out this award-winning program on your PDA or"smartphone". I have it on mine and I just love it. It really makes your"Today" screen useful in so many ways. For all of the things it can doso well, it's not only a Pick, but it's also a Dr.File Finder Favorite!. Those are few and far between.
