JXCirrus Diary for Mac proves to be much more than a journal, offering a calendar, address book, and to-do list manager, all of them bundled into an easy-to-access interface. It also provides notifications for appointments or scheduled events and can serve as your electronic planner.

Pros

Different ways to view schedules: With JXCirrus Diary for Mac you can view your scheduled activities or tasks as a tree, as a summary, or by day, week, or month. The tree view is the most comprehensive and presents all the information you need in an organized way.

Excellent for personal project planning: You can schedule thousands of interrelated tasks that span a long period of time and view task completion percentages, start and due dates, and priorities.

Cloud data saving: The information you write into this program can be saved online for quick access.

Cons

Doesn't look like a diary: If you intend to use this program as a journal, its sober, formal look may put you off.

Clumsy week and month views: The week view has eight cells while the month view shows 42 cells, and the excess cells can be a little confusing. Weeks would look better if they had only seven cells, one for each day, etc.

Doesn't look like a Mac program: The flat interface lacks the polished look and feel of most Mac programs.

Bottom Line

With all its features and functions, JXCirrus Diary for Mac turns out to be a worthwhile download. Just be forewarned that it doesn't come close to the usual idea of a digital diary, its interface lacking the appeal of a personalized journal. Nevertheless, this software offers an extensive range of functions that can make it a great tool for project management within businesses or organizations.
