A wise man once said: Spend time living, not wrestling with software. Perhaps he wasn't the most eloquent wise person, but he was right. LivingTime is at best an interesting concept but a monster of a download.
The program acts as a virtual journal, allowing a user to record thoughts and impressions of life events. Developed using FileMaker, the installer program includes a handful of additional files, which contribute to its heft. Once loaded, performance is superslow--not an ideal situation for someone who wants to record a spontaneous thought.
In fact, nothing about this program is spontaneous. Chock-full of drop-down menus and countless fields, it reminds us more of a tax preparation form rather than a free-form journal. To be sure, the program ran smoothly and without error, but its stability did little to improve our overall impression. There are better journal programs out there.
LivingTime may be best described as a personal memory manager to record life's events. It is a combination of a journal, a logbook, a calendar, and a timeliner. This software combines the modes of writing in a journal or diary, with the more concise item tracking of a logbook, with the familiar monthly calendar, and the graphical representation of a time line.
Enter your life facts and events along with any photos or movies to associate with each event and gain new perspectives on what you've experienced and who you are. Version 2.5.2 includes enhanced security, optimized code for speed improvements at startup and reduction of transitional artifacts during event and view navigation.
