Daily Planner Plus aims to be the organizational tool to end all organizational tools. However, rather than being a jack of all trades, the program ends up being a master of none thanks to an over-abundance of useless features.
This program has a look unlike any other planning software we've tested. Users first see a large open screen with small command icons running along the top and settings running along the left side of the screen. Initially, this looked more like a design program than a planner. The commands along the top range from creating a daily journal, calendar, and to-do list, to mortgage calculators, warranty information, conversion help, and even a joke teller. The programs all function fairly well and do their intended job; however, we were disappointed by a couple of things. First, none of the calendar features synced up. For example, what your to-do list said was not carried into the daily planner. Second, Daily Planner Plus' fixation with providing tons of options got overwhelming to the point where we could only see users utilizing about a third of these options.
Thanks to a stingy trial period, you only have 15 tries before deciding to buy the program. We recommend you keep looking for a calendar program that focuses what's necessary.
From REG Software:
Daily Planner Plus is a capable, multi-module organizer. It includes a daily planner and a to-do list, as well as standard and loan calculators. You'll also find areas for figuring a home budget, keeping a warranty information database, and storing passwords. You can password-protect each of the modules. Daily Planner now lets you enter recurring appointments and import from To Do List function. Calendar function allows import of appointments from Daily Planner function and To Do Items from the To Do List function.
What's new in this version:
Version 8.0 includes new import options to enter data from one function to another.
Has all the features required for a daily planner.... No other pros I you ask me. Today, your computer comes with better individual features installed. This is just like a center for all those.
$ 12.50 low rate!!! The price for which you can own a web domain of you choice for a year. Why to pay for 1000 absolutely basic features out of which 995 are absolutely useless. Simple math. Why not to go for better, comact and free softwares!
Take a pen and a personal diarry and start writing your daily plans rather than using this one.
R.E.G. Software tries to provide solution to help in everyday home organization using software. The rate is reasonable. Manyh uses like the additional features of this software. Pen and paper will work fine for a journal but it is nice to have it on you computer for editing and printing, etc. New features to software include, recurring option for appointments, import data from To Do List to Daily Planner and Calendar area. Import Daily Planner Appointments and TO Do List Items directly into the Calendar. Lot easier than with pen and paper. Have a great day.
Sorry for the program not installing, an earlier version had a file that did not register properly on computers with certain Operating Systems, this has been corrected in later versions and we have received no complaints for the last year or two of install problems. Rich - R. E. G. Software
