This is an iOS version of highly popular personal information manager - EssentialPIM. It manages and provides seamless synchronization of following EssentialPIM data: Contacts, Calendar, To Dos and Passwords (first two types of data are synchronized with iOS internal apps).
- Includes To Do and Passwords modules (more in the development)
- Synchronizes all EPIM data with iOS (including Calendar and Contacts with built-in iOS apps)
- Flawless synchronization works as over Wi-Fi as over cellular networks (make sure you firewall is set up correctly)
- Fast and responsive user interface closely resembles that of Windows version of EPIM
- Fix for notifications
Ratings and Reviews
Lots of bugs on the apl
Happy but a little dissapointed
I've been using the free version of Essential PIM Portable for a number of years now, and it is a top notch program.
In that time I have accrued a lot of contacts. I bought an iPod Touch and I wanted to be able to transfer my contacts over to the device without having to type them all in by hand, plus I wanted an app that would keep in secure.
My experience with the portable program was such that I had no problem forking over the money for the Pro version (I even upgraded to the lifetime option) when I discovered that they had developed an app for iOS that would let me do exactly what I wanted.
I installed and synced all my contacts without any hitches glitches or errors. I was Happy.
Then I read that the iOS app doesn't keep a secure and seperate database of my contacts like does in the portable version...dissapointment, and the only reason I didn't give the app 5 stars.
I hope they develop the contact list inside of the app with the ability to set a password to open it, so that in the future I can password protect all my contacts seperatly from the iPod.
I haven't been able to synch my iPhone w/the software on my laptop on any wireless network except my home network and when I contacted customer support, they said it was due to the firewalls on the other networks- no solution. So the software is practically useless. It also keeps changing the end dates for my recurring appointments and deleting appointments from my calendar. Fortunately, I have other calendar apps on my phone, because the iOS interface on this app is terrible. On the positive side, however, when I am able to use the software, it has a lot of good features comparable to Outlook.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
