Editors' Review

MSD Organizer Freeware is a versatile, expandable, and feature-packed personal information manager. It organizes notes, contacts, appointments, important events, tasks, and much, much more with a free app that can grow with your needs. New in version 11.6 is the ability to save data to three separate folders at once, including cloud-based folders.

MSD Organizer opened with a floating time gadget and an extensive Help file with a Quick Tour and Introduction. The user interface is busy but efficient and attractive, with a day planner in the main window and a calendar sidebar. Customizable toolbars give a familiar browser-like look to the layout, with browser-like efficiency, too. While MSD Organizer does a lot, there's no mystery or confusion about its features: Buttons labeled "Calendar," "Contacts," "Alarms," and so on accessed a variety of clearly configured screens, most with extremely helpful sample data. We could color-code data, view and edit tasks, create sophisticated cards, and access a huge variety of extra tools, including spreadsheets, word processor, image viewer, clock, and calculator -- and even Moon information. Diary, Health, Budget, and other modules add specific capabilities that integrate with MSD Organizer's other features.

MSD Organizer Freeware has the look and feel of a long-running app that's been constantly refined, augmented, and updated, which it is. A Pro version adds various capabilities, but it's hardly an exaggeration to say we were staggered by the extent of the free version's tools, options, and support. This robust, reliable program is clearly among the top tools of its kind.

"Its free but not fully"

March 15, 2009  |  By gunnerds

 |  Version: MSD Organizer Free 9.2

Pros

Its like a PDA on your desktop.

Cons

It does not let you use all the feautes unless you buy the pro version

Summary

If I wanted to buy something I would not have looked in the free section. If your looking for a part of a program here it is. Don't waste your time

"Just needs a few features to make it useful for me"

February 26, 2009  |  By CaptWho

 |  Version: MSD Organizer Free 9.2

Pros

The software seemed versitile and configuarble. Lots of fields to input different information

Cons

The primary drawback for me was that there was no apparent way to track individual conversations with contacts.

Summary

Looks good if what you're looking for is a very configurable address book that can launch applications.

"Basically good, but not for multiple users"

July 13, 2008  |  By DESiegel60

 |  Version: MSD Organizer Freeware 9.1

Pros

Interface is pretty good, covers all the important functions for a PIM. I was about ready to pay for the registered version.

Cons

Page says "Free" but is really "free to try"--free version is limited in number of records allowed--too limited for real use.

All files are sored in a directory based on the current user name. If two people who share the same computer but use different userIDs want to share a calendar or address book, there is no way to do so. For me this was a kiss of death.

Lots of nagging and display of features only availavble in fairly expensive 'pro" version.

"Suffers from Microsoft syndrome"

November 03, 2007  |  By schwaber

 |  Version: MSD Organizer Freeware 8.2

Pros

Fairly complete feature set.

Cons

Why do Geeks (and this is meant affectionately) think they know how business users want the programs to work and interface? This is a good, complete program (unlike the Mozilla offering) but waayyyy too much of a learning curve for a business user who has other demands on his time. And business users do NOT want the calendar interface they provide as the exclusive interface -- it is in timeline/task/project format only, when upper level execs want a calendar based on a full month grid format (for monthly calendars, the most useful) or a vertical day by half- or quarter-hour increments on the left and the task for that increment to the right of the time. Hey guys, throw a quick look at EccoPro to see what a calendar interface should look like. And btw, there is no feature for repeating alarms at set (or settable) intervals prior to the event occurring (I like to be reminded the day before, two hours before and every half hour after that until the event occurs). Again, look at EccoPro.

Summary: Not a flexible interface, and not very useful for business execs. More of a kid's program for high school or maybe college.
