We review a lot of programs, and it's not often that we come across one that we like well enough that we want to keep it for our own use. Time & Chaos is one such program. This planner and contact manager offers plenty of features without becoming cluttered and unwieldy.
The program's interface is sleek and very intuitive, and we absolutely love how everything is displayed in separate panes in one screen. At a glance we can see our calendar, contacts, appointments, and tasks. Need to schedule a meeting with George, or put calling Betty on your to-do list? Just drag and drop your contact's name into the appropriate pane, and the program will open the dialogue to set an appointment or task. Users can also view each function separately, including a daily view with a summary of the current day's schedule and to-do list. Unlike many similar programs, Time & Chaos does not try to pack in a lot of useless features for the sake of looking comprehensive. Every feature we came across was well-designed and useful. We loved the memo feature, with its options of text, tables, and file shortcuts. We loved that contacts can be assigned to groups and categories and associated with one another. The program's networking capabilities make it a fantastic choice for users who need to share information. The online Help file is thorough and well-written.
Time & Chaos has a 21-day trial period. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We highly recommend this program for users seeking a powerful and intuitive way to manage their time and contacts.
