Pimlical Advanced Calendar/PIM

Pimlical Advanced Calendar/PIM


Pimlical is an advanced successor to the very popular Palm Calendar application, DateBk, used by millions of Palm and Handspring users that now runs on Android Devices. Manages Events, Tasks, Memos and Contacts.

There is a matching desktop PIM application for Windows-based PC's and data can be synced back and forth with Pimlico's DirectSync, as well as through Google Calendar see Pimlico Website at www.PimlicoSoftware.com.

In addition to providing all the conventional calendar functionality, Pimlical has a wealth of features for the power user not present in any other calendar application on any platform. If you are looking for a "cute" and "pretty" calendar, you should look elsewhere, as this program is designed for users who need not only vastly more functionality in a calendar application, but also far more preference settings so it can be truly customized for their use. The relatively few negative reviews of this application are typically posted by users who were just looking for something that was pretty rather than super-functional (and of course it takes some study to even begin to learn all the things that it can do).

Features include

* Quick Entry Templates
* Down-counting Reminders
* Floating Events, as well as tasks
* Custom icons, fonts and colors
* Full repeat support including irregular repeats
* Filters to control all aspects of event display

* Day, Day+, Week, Week+, Month, Month+ and List Views
* Dynamic resizing of font display with up/down strokes
* 450+ Preference Settings control all display aspects
* Fast entry of dates and times, 2 Date Pickers, 3 Time Pickers to choose from
* Full Timezone handling
* Advanced Find function
* iCalendar import and export
* Full local contacts support including vCard Import/Export
* Full local memo support using standard text files
* Events, tasks, contacts and memos all sync to matching Desktop application
* Separate widget available shows upcoming events, alarms, free time with a dynamic, resizable display and full control via P/A Filter to determine which events are shown in the widget.
* Supports both native Android calendar and secure (bypassing Cloud) local calendar on SD card that can sync to desktop version via DirectSync
* An active forum on Yahoo Groups populated with other Power Users interested in advancing the functionality of this application.

Pimlical/Android is definitely a PIM for power users and not for the occasional-use novice. The focus of the application is directed towards efficiency and functionality, and for the author, CESD, this is a continual work-in-progress as new functionality is added on a regular basis.

Haters in the extreme minority While I won't give it 5 stars, because it's not perfect (what is), clearly those who rate PimlicalA low are few & far between. There's more than one aspect that raises PimlicalA heads-and-shoulders above the rest, but I'll just mention one: customizability (if that's a real word). I can tweak just about every aspect of each entry to be exactly the way I want it. The displays of the competators are clearly inferior, and, despite negative reviews to the contrary, while PimlicalA may take a little time to get used to, it's a worthy successor to DateBk.

Very versatile and useful Takes a bit of learning to know the app but well worth it. Get the widget as well. The two work like hands and gloves.

UPDATE Aug 2014: IT'S GOTTEN WORSE, and too top is off app developer wants us to pay for his widget which should've been included with our calendar purchase! please do not buy this software stay away!! I recommend business Calendar pro or Acalendar+ Pro I think they will better suit your needs! Original Review August 2013: clunky! Not silky smooth as all the epic elder legacy Palm users would like to believe this app is the replacement and heavenly app of datebrook+ plus, this calendar is a bunch of crap for the most part. I bought it before it went on Google play store because they excited my brother, he raved about it so he and I also bought it when it was released on Google play store. both cost $20 each time just to support developer so I doubled tripled quadruple paid him for other apps that he has to that suck! frankly just suck a big time cause, come on guys no widgets first off, or it goes off of & floating task goes off and it sounds the alarm and they are so freaking annoying when they load at boot, when they load for an alert it loads the whole freaking app in the freaking foreground over whatever your doing. it doesn't have a user is using a app in foreground and goto notification that's terrible & killing my systems resources clunky bloated sluggish! worst of it is now you go and report this stuff and he or they respond to there uses like there APP is perfect and they pretend nothing your alerting them to or making them aware of nothing you tell them matters and they will disregard your report completely. makes your phone feel reverse useful! so clunky & you feel retarded, when doing something and it all the sudden takes over whatever you were doing. highly recommend changing pop-up to not automatically unlock your device! that's a major security flaw disable it. also the integrated contact control is the worst interrogation in an app ever! most time linking contracts is much more difficult can't select multiple any more try and it will crash and you'll have to rewrite your task, event, or calendar creation you were working on again & again and again. Plimlical calendar has become annoyance a nuisance a phone disability! again any event it loads the whole calendar and the Dismiss snooze or whatever a big white page but before that's comes up you see the whole app loading 4k of stuff than finally the alert! most likely you'll most definitely have to restart from scratch whatever it was you were doing. all below is so annoying and no option for things like to make a dark calendar a non bright battery hog theme! customizations is what I thought this calendar was all about not really at all it's very clunky interface swiping gestures I get I get out of doing but they're annoying! worst #1 problem would be is your phone will not recognise it as your default calendar when when you click a ics in an e-mail in android you'll get a selection of calendars that are installed and recognized as a calendar at all no shap or form. for example press and hold your home button and hold until you get a choice to bring up your task manager then select default apps settings till see calendar in there is set to either acalendar, business calendar, or Samsung's default built in calendar but Pimlico pimlical isn't a selection chooser. amongst that there is so much more fails with that app it's too much to list!

Must have calendar application I rely on this application so much that I paid for it twice. Wide range of options that give me the views and information that I need. I use Pimlical every day and use primarily 2 views - month w/ icon and a 4 days. I love the power and flexibility that Pimlical provides. I sync Pimlical with my corporate Exchange calendar and dont use Google calendar or the Pim desktop app. Like other reviewers I have been using a calendar app like this since Datebk3.
