SetPay Bill Manager 1.00

Friday, March 14th, 2008

SetPay is a very simple utility to manage recurring online payments.

Pros: SetPay Bill Manager utility helps manage on line payments. Keeping track of payments, particularly those of a recurring due date is a problem. One tends to forget such dates and then payments get missed. One way to avoid such problems is to have a complete table of such payment with all relevant details displayed whenever required. Relevant details would be the amount due, what card might have been used for payment, type of payment-single or recurring and the website at which payment is to be made. Having all these details readily available is a big help in not forgetting a due payment.

The users interface is a spreadsheet like table where the payment details can be added by a add a record button. When clicked on it brings up a form with fields for the required details. There’s a calendar to help with setting a date. Removing a record also is as easy through remove a record button.

Cons: Biggest issue is this program does not have a reminder/alert associated with the payment dates. Without these alerts the listing or the schedules is meaningless as, for various reasons one can forget to even look at the schedule and then one would miss a payment.

Second problem is you cannot set recurrence schedule. One cannot just say that the payment repeats every month or every year or whatever there can only be a note saying this is a recurring payment type.

Overall it is really just a table maintenance program. Without reminders facility having these details in front of you is not much help.

Need to remember something? Jott it!

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008

Normally when you want to make a quick note for future reference, it requires some effort. You have to grab a pen and paper, or maybe your PDA if you’re more technologically inclined.

With Jott, all you have to do is grab your cellphone and dial a special toll free number (which you can easily put on speed dial!) You then say who your message is for, such as “myself”, ” family”, or a work group or friends name for example. Now you can dictate up to 30 seconds of a message. This is then transcribed and emailed or texted to yourself as a reminder or to the chosen group.

At the moment its currently only available in the US and Canada, but is certainly an exciting idea which sounds like it could be very useful.

Sound interesting to you? Check out the website and test it out for yourself!

Easy Time Logs Pro 2.2.15

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008

Easy Time Logs is a time tracking, timesheet, and project management software product. It offers a web-based interface with timesheets and a variety of other features and reports.

Pros: Easy Time Logs is a time tracking, timesheet, and project management software product. While it is easy for the individual team members to enter time spent on tasks and the corresponding project, it is equally easy for supervisors to track time usage and monitor the progress of a specific project. As these projects/activities are based on time rates, the customer billing amounts based on the overall billing rate agreed with the customer is easily calculated. Customer invoicing becomes that much easier because the application keeps track of these. All members of your team can record their working hours per client and projects, use a web-based timesheet, and track their time throughout the day. The information is stored in a shared hosted or native database which is accessible to employees, managers and executives of the company. The program has many customizing options to suit the need for a particular organization, the developers recognize that everybody’s need is different.

The user interface is built on the styles of MS Outlook so that adds to the familiarity and ease of use. Consolidated reports can be generated quite easily by the supervisors from this interface. These can be summary reports or detailed ones including all clients, all tasks, all projects.

Cons: Some system messages are a little ambiguous which may due to unfamiliarity of developers with the language. The icons/buttons do not have labels that are shown on mouse over. Not enough system messages either to guide a user. On some combinations of inputs program debug system messages came on, meaning that they are not handled properly, some system messages should handle such exceptions.

On the billing front there are no ways to keep track of expenses chargeable to a customer as well as any traveling expenses that may be due.

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

The Journal provides an easy-to-use mix of convenience, flexibility, and security to write, organize, remember, find things from a journal, whatever may be the journaling and writing needs.

Pros: The Journal application makes it easy to keep a daily journal, for both personal and professional use. Writing about thoughts and dreams or work notes and ideas or simply planning notes and decision details this application lets the user write & keep notes about just about anything. The Journal provides an easy-to-use mix of convenience, flexibility, and security.

One can create as many entries as he feels like. Dates get updated, then it is up to the user to add entries, sub entries or loose leaf entries as needed. Categorize the entries to completely custom categories, create them as you go. Helps search them later. Besides text, images could be added to the entries along with date, time, timer count or even a calendar charm. Calendar charms are small graphic icons to liven things up a little bit. The journal can sit in the system tray, always ready, always available and can be totally secure by password protection and encryption.

The interface is an augmented Word like interface. The interface additionally shows the hierarchical structure of the notes, the current calendar and a timer at option if needed. The timer could be set to be a count down one or a stop watch to indicate total elapsed time. These can be helpful with time based work. .Main work area is a tabbed area that shows, besides the journal work area, a notebook, templates, an address book etc. Reminder setting services are available for tasks set up, important dates and such items.

Cons: Notes, tasks and address book functionality are features available with Outlook too. So their duplication here could be questioned. In particularly since you have to maintain an address book anyway with the mail application anyway. But then viewed as an application that is open on the desktop all the time, these do have a place in the journal too.
