Sambucus 1.2, multi-tasking time-management software for the Mac, is now available from Malus Software, a Montreal based company that specializes in Mac products. The update introduces the capability to choose a different currency symbol than the default “$” and introduces a basic exporting feature of time-stamps to a tab-delimited text file.
Sambucus is a time-tracking application for those who work on multiple projects at a time. It provides a set of basic functionalities such as project and task creation; time tracking, per task; note keeping, per task; and time stamp administration from the Control Strip.
“Through a simple interface, the user can manage the time spent on different projects, each divided into one or more tasks,” Jean Le Clerc of Malus said. “Furthermore, notes can be saved for each task. Like all Malus products, Sambucus is offered in both English and French versions, and the Undo function is only limited by the amount of memory allocated to the application. This way the user can safely try-out features, knowing that the action can be undone.”
Sambucus 1.2 requires a Power Mac; Mac OS 8.0 or later (sorry, but it’s not Carbonized for Mac OS X); at least 3MB of RAM; and 1.6MB of disk space for the application (projects will use additional disk space). It’s a freeware product and is available at the
Malus Software Web site.
