Basic calendar tool

Keep track of your day-to-day activities with this free diary tool.

This virtual diary, called myDiary, lets you record your daily activities, thoughts, and tasks. Novices will appreciate its easy-to-navigate user interface.

When first accessing the program through its executable file format, the program requires that you enter a master password. The user interface could benefit from some color because it's pretty plain, but it consists of a slender window with a calendar at the top, a large search button, and a open panel for diary entries. The menu toolbar at the top includes features for navigating between diary entries (the program refers to them as blogs), and inserting time and calculator info into the body of your entry. If you prefer hot keys over manually selecting tasks from the toolbar menu, they are available, but not customizable. Adding an entry is as easy as selecting a day on the menu, and typing your entry in the bottom panel. Oddly, there's no save option, but the program remembered our entries when we accessed the program at a later time.

Help is available through the interface, but it simply describes what each feature does, and doesn't offer any kind of index or search functionality. While we certainly wouldn't trust this free program with our most sensitive data or calendar info, it serves its purpose as a basic diary-entry tool.
