Chronos, which released Personal Organizer 4.0 for Mac OS X last week, will release Group Organizer next week. It will be the first networkable PIM (personal information manager) available for Max OS X, according to Robert McCullough, Chronos’ vice president of engineering.
“The demand for an organizer which runs natively on Mac OS X exceeded our initial expectations for Personal Organizer 4.0,” he said in a statement. “We’ve been inundated with calls about when our Group Organizer product would be available for Mac OS X.”
Group Organizer 4.0 specifications and pricing will be included in the official rollout. Personal Organizer 4.0 integrates a calendar, address book, word processor, memo taker, personal journal, phone dialer and alarm clock into a single application. And it can sync with all Palm and Handspring handheld organizers.
Personal Organizer 4.0 requires Mac OS 8.6 or above, including Mac OS X. The application takes 13MB of disk space. A 30-day trial version can be downloaded from
Chronos’ Web site. The cost is US$59.99.
