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).

* 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
* Multiple calendar, category and group support

* 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.

If you encounter issues on installing Pimlical/Android, first check out the FAQ’s on the TechSupport tab of www.pimlicosoftware.com or go to the support forum at: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/Pimlical

Best of all, all the profits go to the benefit of Wildlife Conservation, as CESD also manages the only private AZA-certified facility in the world for Gorillas (yes, gorillas! – see www.dewarwildlife.org).

Recent changes:

* Deferred Status type is now handled

Best calendar app available, no questiomn about it. Full of features many of which you may not even be aware of. Excellent. Worth buying.

World Class I'm one of the Palm refugees, used the earliest "DateBk" versions up to the current Android implementation. This app was, still is, and is increasingly stand-out among all Android apps (imho), not just calendar apps. It is feature rich, elegantly architected, has incredible number of options & settings, has excellent documentation, is very robust and exceptionally well supported and maintained. Not the most beautiful app, but for the more than casual calendarer, the learning curve is well worth the effort.

Best full featured calendar app All the features you could want, plus more. As a long-time user of Datebook and then Pimlical, I know it's the best. I've tried everything else. Pimlical wins.

Highly customizable You can tweak almost everything until it fits you like a glove. Disadvantage is that there are countless settings.... Love the sync with several agendas (desktop, Google, outlook). I do have my personal time management, a family calendar and a shared work calendar, everything in one handy place. Developer is very dedicated for many many years now and still responds to inquiries fast.
