Editors' review

Mindful is a multifeatured reminder and password manager that provides users with a variety of ways to keep track of things. The intuitive interface makes the program easy to use, but we did notice a few annoying quirks.

Mindful's interface isn't beautiful, but it's easy enough to understand and navigate. The program's main screen displays a simple list of upcoming events; there is no calendar or planner-style display. The password manager allows users to store log-in information for their various accounts in one place, protected by a master password, and the Hot Keys feature is a nice bonus. With this feature, users can have the program log in for them automatically with a simple, user-defined key combination. For example, we logged into a Web site by pressing Control+Shift+L; the program typed our username, tabbed over, and entered our password. This eliminates the need to remember multiple log-in and password combinations. A few other tools--a calendar, password generator, countdown time, and date calculator--round out the program. The built-in Help file provides adequate instructions.

Our main quibbles with Mindful have to do with its functionality. It seems that when it's running, our screen periodically flashes, as if it's refreshing. And the shadow associated with one of the program's drop-down menus remained after the menu--and the program--were closed, which was annoying and hard to get rid of.

Mindful has a 30-day trial period. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program but with reservations; we like its features, but a couple of irritating habits mar the user experience.

    Version: Mindful 2.2

    Pros

    I love this little program. Keeps my bills organized so I know at a glance whats due. Keeps track of appts.and whatever else I need to keep track of. Just entered a date to remind me to use Frontline on the dogs. This is the 3rd computer I've used Mindful on.

    Cons

    No cons. But I'd like more options for making it prettier. Yea..lame I know.
