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 : Continue Reading…
Adobe continues to tread the path of online services with its latest offering Acrobat.com. With the launch of the online tools, Adobe also launched a tightly integrated version of Adobe Reader 9.0 that works seamlessly with the internet. With the latest offering, I feel Adobe is taking small but significant steps in the online office arena.
Weather or not it can defeat Google, Microsoft in this threeway fight is the big question?
Well Acrobat.com is a mini portal of sorts. It is the combination of their online meetings tool – Adobe Brio, online Word Processor – Adobe Buzzword and online file sharing – Adobe Share. Most importantly Adobe Acrobat 9 now comes with Flash built into the PDF experience.
I’ve been playing around with Acrobat.com for the past couple of hours, so here are personal opinions on each of the offerings…
Everyday I get emails from small startups asking me how to manage time and reduce their expenses. Well I’m not into this startup thingy but I thought I’d do these guys a favor, so I went hunting for the best free time tracking software and stumbled upon actiTIME.
In a nutshell actiTIME is basically :
“A clear and simple way to register time expenses, analyze employee performance, prepare timesheets for billing your customers”
I’ve tried out the demo and the web based app is highly functional and easy to use. You can collect timesheets by customers, projects and tasks. With awesome reporting capabilities and one of the best exporting options actiTIME is a must have tool for startups that are just starting out..
Have a look at this diagram that better illustrates the way actiTIME works..
Imagine how nice it would be if you could launch your favorite application by just clicking the middle mouse button. Well today am going to show you a simple hack that allows you to launch your favorite application at the click of a button.
Before you begin, download and install WinFlog eXtreme on your Windows Vista PC. Once you are done with the installation, have a look around at the app, I’m sure you will find some interesting tweaks. But that is not what we are looking for at the moment, so read on to find out how you can launch your favorite app by just clicking the middle mouse button.
I’ve been a long time of Launchy, a app that happens to be just everyone’s favorite application launcher. I decided to uninstall Launchy and give a try to Enso, about which I’ve heard great things. I was reluctant at first, but after about three days of using this, I have to say that I’m completely blown away by it.
First I started off with a look at their Video Demo, which I strongly suggest you have a look at. Impressed after having a look at the video I started to use it, and everytime I used it, I was more and more falling in love with it. I started off with Enso Launcher, and I’m now using the Media controller as well to remote control my Zune Media Player. There are more tools like Spell Checker, Translation Tool and many more..
Using Enso, is a breeze, and the developers seem to have worked very hard with regards to its UI and ease of use. Just Hold the Caps Lock key down and type in the command, and you will begin to see all possible variations of the command in a super sexy looking green modal window. Enso also has a very robust help system, that you can always look upto inorder to get used to Enso. To see a list of supported commands type ‘command list’ while holding down the Caps Lock key.
