Review: Tree Notes

Tree Notes (by Dextronet) takes an interesting approach to note-taking; ditching the common sticky-note method in favor of a collapsible tree containing various items and projects in the left-pane, and a rich-text editor to the right, which can contain notes, emails and embedded files to keep track of daily tasks and events.

Items can be distinguished with a selection from over 244 icons provided, and your notes can be stored in a local database with optional encryption to keep out prying eyes.

It's all fairly intuitive, and the ability to export to PDF, along with searchable notes and a built-in spellchecker makes this a good all-round organizer for personal note-taking.

Review: Visual Time Analyzer

Visual Time Analyzer (by A. & M. Neuber Software) sits in the background keeping track of everything you do on your PC, whether it's browsing the internet or working on projects. Data is gathered on-the-fly while you work on other things, which is then presented to you in the form of graphs, time-lines and an 'activity diary'.

Navigating the UI is virtually effortless, allowing you to quickly make sense of which apps you've been running, how long you spent on certain websites, and a breakdown of project activity based on which software you identify as a tool of each project.

Whether you're slightly disorganized and want to be more productive, or you're already an obsessive planner  - this utility deserves some consideration, and the ability to compare data between multiple users/workstations makes it especially useful for the workplace.

An essential tool for anyone who wants to get organized and track the time they spend on different tasks, at home or in the office. Provides in-depth reporting with a solid user-interface.
