EssentialPIM Portable – freeware lets you carry your life around on a flash drive

Essentialpim

This free EssentialPIM program is proof that even in this web-centric day and age people still enjoy using good old fashioned personal information managers to organise their lives.

The freeware version offers the core features you need to stay on top of things, including a scheduler, to-do list, outliner and contact manager, although you’ll need to pony up $39.95 for the email functionality of the Pro version. One cute option is to install the whole thing onto a USB drive and carry it around with you from computer to computer. Beats leaving your Filofax in the taxi.

 PIM stands for Personal Information Manager, and it allows you to keep all your information in electronic form. All your appointments, tasks, to do lists, notes, contacts and email messages are stored in a graphical and easily accessible form. Fully Netbook compatible!

Nigel is the managing editor of the Red Ferret, as well as a freelance columnist for the Sunday Times newspaper in London. Loves tech and fancies himself as a bit of a futurist, but then don’t we all?
