Pimlical is an advanced successor to the very popular Palm Calendar application, DateBk, used by millions of Palm and Handspring users that now runs on Android Devices. Manages Events, Tasks, Memos and Contacts.

There is a matching desktop PIM application for Windows-based PC's and data can be synced back and forth with Pimlico's DirectSync, as well as through Google Calendar see Pimlico Website at www.PimlicoSoftware.com.

In addition to providing all the conventional calendar functionality, Pimlical has a wealth of features for the power user not present in any other calendar application on any platform. If you are looking for a "cute" and "pretty" calendar, you should look elsewhere, as this program is designed for users who need not only vastly more functionality in a calendar application, but also far more preference settings so it can be truly customized for their use. The relatively few negative reviews of this application are typically posted by users who were just looking for something that was pretty rather than super-functional (and of course it takes some study to even begin to learn all the things that it can do).

* Quick Entry Templates

* Supports both native Android calendar and secure (bypassing Cloud) local calendar on SD card that can sync to desktop version via DirectSync
* An active forum on Yahoo Groups populated with other Power Users interested in advancing the functionality of this application.

Pimlical/Android is definitely a PIM for power users and not for the occasional-use novice. The focus of the application is directed towards efficiency and functionality, and for the author, CESD, this is a continual work-in-progress as new functionality is added on a regular basis.

    While I won't give it 5 stars, because it's not perfect (what is), clearly those who rate PimlicalA low are few & far between. There's more than one aspect that raises PimlicalA heads-and-shoulders above the rest, but I'll just mention one: customizability (if that's a real word). I can tweak just about every aspect of each entry to be exactly the way I want it. The displays of the competators are

    Takes a bit of learning to know the app but well worth it. Get the widget as well. The two work like hands and gloves.

    I've been using this (or its relative) since I was on the Palm. The most flexible, clear, simply useful calendar I've ever found. It's got a lot of functions and options - takes a while to adjust it to your preferences - but then it takes no thought because it just works the way you expect. Sync to Android calendar or direct to your comp, multiple calendars clearly displayed, NEW different alarms

    This is a decent app because all the available settings. With all the settings available the alarm only has two (2) that you get to choose from: the alert alarm which is annoying and stops everything or nothing at all. Why no "status bar notification" choice?.. sigh.....

    I love the features of this calendar program and have been using it since the Palm days, BUT it's extremely annoying that every update (and that's multiple times a month) it loses all my default settings and I have to go back in and fix everything AGAIN. It's a very complex program and finding all my changes is both hard and time consuming.

    Had every version of Datebook and missed how functional this is. Thanks
