Never forget an appointment

Stay on top of important tasks and contacts with this well-designed tool.

Pagico (Professional) is a unique database program that organizes your thoughts and contacts, and even allows you to schedule tasks. It offers a very easy-to-navigate, template-style interface that will appeal to all user levels.

After installation, the program does require that you enter your e-mail address to activate the 15-day trial period. The overall interface design is clean and simple. Menu commands at the top of the window let you create and edit new databases. You can create a new database for keeping notes and for contacts. We especially liked the template style that made it easy to figure out what to plug in and where. The program offers a tagging feature so you can quickly locate specific posts. Adding a new task took us a few minutes to figure out, but we were able to add a list of tasks, along with their start and due dates. Our tasks appeared on the attractive Dashboard calendar. Using the QuickNotes feature, we were able to quickly type a note and insert it into a previous task we had entered. The program's Preferences menu lets you choose a time zone and language preference. An option to view your schedule in your favorite calendar program (i.e. iCal) is a nice touch.

Pagico does come with a User Manual, and an online Help link. We would have liked to have seen a longer trial period, but the program was easy enough to use that 15 days should be long enough for most to get a good feel for the program. We recommend Pagico for anyone in need of a contact management program.
