Getting things done is a rage these days. I’ve been a long standing fan of Remember the Milk for managing my day to day activities. Recently I heard about Fruitful Time Manager and decided to try it out..

I’ve been using it for the past couple of days and suffice to say I’ve been more than impressed by it.. The most important thing is obviously the fact being a desktop software it is always there for you, but that itself is its biggest advantage for people always on the move and that’s where Remember the Milk tops Fruitful Time.

Nevertheless Fruitful is a beautiful piece of software and should be of great use to freelancers and other web workers working from home. Here’s a screenshot of Fruitful in action..


Here’s a rundown through its features :

  • Manage your to do list easily and quickly.
  • Create / edit / delete tasks.
  • Tasks can be split into smaller manageable subtasks like paying telephone bill can be split to paying landline bill and paying mobile phone bill.
  • Monitor the progress on each task / subtask.
  • Assigning tasks to different contacts.
  • Set the priority for each task.
  • Set up reminders for tasks
  • Assign tags to tasks
  • Password protect your tasks such that only you will be able to edit and view it.
  • Carry your task list with you anywhere if you install FruitfulTime TaskManager on a USB pen drive.

The absence of online access is more or less compensated by the ability to carry your task list on a USB pen drive, but still the online addition would have been really useful..

Here are a few screenshots of FruitfulTime in action. The Screenshots alone show the raw power of the software.. (Click on them for bigger versions)
