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.
