#2 - Awesome. I must be the only one who realized sarcasm when I read it. #Everyone else - He was mocking the fact that the publisher supports an operating system that is over a decade out of date. C'mon people, lighten up!

Also Giovanni recommended Vueminder Pro, but it has the following problems. This problem list will be useful for comparing to LeaderTask:

Editor is rudimentary: Pastes into Description only with Arial, always have to change everytime
Will not paste with formatting such as highlights, underlining, hyperlinks etc
Centering works only on entire description – cannot center just one line
Cannot drag&drop an email into a calendar item
Calendar items open at the bottom of the page, should open at top duh
Too much slow down on startup
Phones home everyday behind your back to port 123; who knows what data it is stealing.

Pretty risky to put your scheduled tasks into a program that will not be there the next time Windows has to be reinstalled.

But of course they are counting on that to get your $35.

Didn't see mention of import and export of existing Outlook tasks, which is where this company will have to pry most customers away from.

#24 didn't get the joke of #2.

I personally like Thunderbird with the add on Lightning, then synchronized with Google calendars. Cross platform capability for my needs, but I didn't check android. However, google calendar syncs everything together.

What Giovanni posted, most of them are payware, and also much more expensive than LeaderTask. See for yourselves.
The giveaway today is portable also. For those who need to keep close tract of schedules, I will suggest to download this. The price is also fair compared with many paywares mentioned by Giovanni. But for most of us, paper and ink reminder is enough, or at most just a small whiteboard placed on the wall.

My solution as a calendar and task organiser is a small wirebound notebook with a stubby ikea pencil tucked into the wire coil. It's certainly portable and can be installed in any pocket. It's light and flexible, the more so as it's getting pretty dog-eared now.

I have been using LeaderTask for over a year now. It does sync with my Android Galaxy SII very well; however I do not use the E-mail client included in LT. Mostly because when GMail syncs with LT, it brings in all of the archived e-mails, and I do not want to set up all of my folders in LT that I have in GMail. I am thinking I will set up a separate GMail account for LT only to contact someone from LT when a task is due...but I haven't done that yet.

If you want a simple task manager, LT will be like killing a mosquito with a shotgun. However, if you have multiple organizations you belong to, along with responsibilities in each of those organizations, and you need to keep track of them all (I currently have over 300 tasks in LT as of this writing) then I can recommend this program. It's free and it was from GotD that i first started using LeaderTask.

I read all of the comments about this software giveaway like I normally do before I download it. I am glad I did so this time especially! I think that I will respectfully pass on this one! But hey, at least it's not another Photograph enhancer giveaway this time folks!

Downloaded and installed. But i wonder if this is portable. If its not portable then its useless. How can i bring my task abroad if it is not portable? I use allmynotes, aml, treepad and my favorite smartdiary.

I went to their web site to look around. They need to get someone who is comfortable with English as there are several awkward expressions and mispellings such as time "menegment".

Anyhow, from looking at their site it appears that if you wish to sync your Windows program with your iPhone, iPad or Android device, then you need to subscribe to their sync service which is $8.99 for 3 months, 14.70 for 6 months and 21 for a year. The apps for your mobile device are free but as far as I can tell they don't sync with each other or anything else without subscribing to their synch service. This makes this program a non-contender for me.

#2: There is no such thing as Windows 2007. And Windows 2003 is a SERVER operating system, so although it's possible, I highly doubt you've 'upgraded' to it. So in total, what are you babbling about?

ANYWAY... I have used the highest level version of LeaderTask many times over the past several years as a trial, and there really hasn't been any (or at least not much) new functionality added. It's an okay program at best, but it shines its best if most of your tasks tend to be project-oriented. Otherwise, it's pretty mediocre compared to others in its price range, or even several of the free ones for that matter.

Admittedly, I haven't tried today's giveaway and don't intend to; these are just my thoughts from past history of using the program.

I guess I am the only one who still uses the Free Palm One Desktop Calendar. It doesn't sync to anything because the wonderful company was bought out by 3COM (Who used to make Modems) and the program is dead developing at Version 4.01 or .04 i think. You can still find it and install it so that it boots up with your boot up programs. That was the hardest thing for me to figure out because there's no Autoexec.bat file anymore. Running Win 7 and loving it.

No password protection and no encryption is a turn off for me.

Try evernote..that's free and the best...it is crossplatform...

It gets synced automatically with all your devices (like android and windows)

1. where it says download plugins, at least let us see the plugins and descriptions (even if your going to deny us downloading them, since we are not yet members)

2. Add option to use external email client executable like thebat!(ritlabs)

3. Make the password for the database .ltf file somehow under the "settings" instead of a menu click.

4. Change toolbar, so that app can rollup to save screenspace. ("winroll style" right-click toolbar)

5. import/export email to from unix mbox format.

6. import/export tasks from other PIM soft formats.

7. import .rtf and other text formats.

8. Give more information about the encryption being used. More encryption options. I can see it's SQLite format 3

9. synch with something other than one website and one email client.

all in all not a bad giveaway

I agree with the posters who complain about being forced to use 'the cloud' in order to sync with other devices. However, we all must accept the fact that this is the future. Most users love the convenience more than they worry about their privacy. Can you hear the bleating?

After reading the comments already posted, there is no reason to download another PIM program. I use Outlook and don't want a split personality between my calendar and my email. Thank you GAOTD for fine efforts at giving us programs to try every day!

I am always looking for an all-in-one for all my devices. I was hoping this was finally "it" that could work on my desktop and Android. I was very disappointed that, as lenray mentioned, the email is disabled on this version so it is basically just a task list/scheduler.

Reply   |   Comment by BW  –  10 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

I also tried this program last time. It is a very good calendar / task organizer and works like a combination of Essential PIM portable and Task Coach portable that I have on another computer. I stopped using it because I like portable programs. But in general it is a good organizer.

Reply   |   Comment by ASBY  –  10 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

Pretty decent PIM, Calendar, Scheduler, Address Book designed to manage your tasks with ease: very suitable for businessmen and/or busy people. However 35 BUCKS for an app like this seems to me a little bit overpriced: what do you make of it, dudes??

And for more professional people....


Oh yes...this GAOTD is definitely overpriced....LOL!!

Third screenshot shows email functions. This is the Standard Version of LeaderTask. Email is only available in Expert version. Don't waste the download time by being misled.

OK, I don't give up easily, so I went to their forum to see if I had done something wrong, did I misunderstand how to set up Android-sync.

And this time I do give up!

Another user in the forum:
"Hey, I cannot get the sync-function to work, what am I doing wrong".

"We have sent you an email with the solution"!!

Works on Win 8 64 no problem, but a bit of a let down as the email function is disabled all you are really getting is a task scheduler that looks a lot like outlook. I decided I don't need this and removed it. There is no uninstall option. Thanks anyway.

I tried this out last time and I think Outlook and Windows Live Mail can both do better.

A freeware alternative: EfficientPIM Free Edition
It's portable

Some initial reactions while I check it out: a 533 cpu seems a little high requirement for a software of this type, but 90% or more of users should have that or better, so it's not really an issue. Probably optimized for fast performance by taking advantage of cpus that fast or faster. Developer is Russian and seems to be well established, siting a number of corporate clients and also testimonials that look like they could be legit. It makes no attempt to hide it's location. On the contrary, it provides a mailing address, directions, and even a map. They also claim to provide free licenses to educational institutions. From the screenshots, this appears to be something of a businesses oriented organizer with a number of features. That might explain the 34.95 price. It has security features: it's password protected and claims some kind of encryption.

Developer's site is in Russian, English, and German. It has forums in, Russian and English and a Polish section on the English forum. Contact page has FAQ and help link, as well as email support button. Developers claim to answer support questions during normal businesses hours and provide a form if you haven't heard from them in 48 hours.

Has printed a couple of paragraph translations from reviews published in the Russian addition of PC Mag in 2010 and 11. Also seem to be legitimate. In short, developers website worth checking out if you need help deciding whether to download and try.

SO WHAT is this supposed to mean: "a time-limited offer" - does this software stop working, if so - when? Tomorrow, next week, next month? I checked French, German and Dutch language versions of this website. German site doesn't say anything about time limit, French does.
Please clarify.

Hi Hugo,

"time-limited offer" means that you have to install and activate the program while the campaign is on. Every giveaway lasts for 24 hours usually.

Thank you,

I was SO happy when I saw the Android-sync option.
I have given up on Microsoft Outlook, and I really need to have an updated calender/task/appontments etc on my mobile phone.

So I downloaded.
The program suggested I install in c:/GAMES ... hello!! In GAMES? I didn't even HAVE a folder c:/games/ (my games are installed on another disk).
But I accepted, as I do believe in installing where the program itself suggests (especially after reading the "readme.txt" that said "do NOT install in C:\Program Files\ ... but in "games" just sounds wrong.)

But I installed, and the program started with a song. Literally.

I tried to find where to sync. The only option was to log on to something (I assume a website, it was definitely NOT my Android-phone).
I went online and downloaded the Leader Task Android App. Downloaded OK. Tried to sync calendar. Once again, "log on" to something, and NOT my computer.

I give up on this program.
I want to have a program on my computer that handles all my appointments and tasks. I spend most of my day at my computer, so this seems "smart" to me.
I want to have a program on my mobile phone that ALSO has all my appointments and tasks. I ALWAYS carry my mobile phone, so this is even "smarter".

I do NOT se any reason why my appointments and tasks should be spread around the internet. I se no reason why my computer should send my appointments and tasks OUT of my house, so that my mobile phone can load them back again, when both my computer and my mobile phone support various networking connections.

I may have been too soon in dropping MS Outlook.

Wouldn't you know it I just upgraded to Windows 2003. See you will never get me to go to the Window 2007. Look who right now naysayers watch and wait watch and wait I always say. Sorry, I just upgraded to Windows 8 and have to track this stuff a little closer than I care to. Thanks for the software.

As a simple home user I don't have a great need for this type of program. But I did check on it and found that most reviews were favorable. Check out these links. First from Download.com...


and then from Softpedia...


I won't try to comment any further but will say thank you to the GOTD team and to Almeza Company.
