On Monday morning, January 3, 2000, programmers around the world relaxed.

There had been no bank failures; no widespread shutdowns of water, electric and energy systems; and no panic.

The years-long scramble to code computers to recognize four-digit years, thus distinguishing 2000 from 1900, had paid off.

Y2K was history.

Among the many things that didn't occur 23 years ago is EssentialPIM. The personal information organizer that more than one million are using would not be developed for another five years, in 2005. Since then, EPIM has deployed 202 releases of its Windows product, besides developing versions for Android and iOS.

Last year, EPIM for Windows released four major versions—11.5 through 11.8—and 12 minor releases. The Android product, AEPIM, had eight updates for bug fixes and enhancements, starting the year at AEPIM 6.0.10 and ending at version 6.0.17.

We will review in this post how EssentialPIM advanced in 2023 in four broad categories: New functionality, usability, importing and exporting files, and synchronization.

We are thrilled to announce the release of EssentialPIM 11.8, which brings a whole new level of productivity to your fingertips. Let's dive into the exciting new features and improvements:

Meeting Invitations

Meeting Invitations

Effortlessly invite participants to your appointments and tasks. EssentialPIM automates the processing of received responses, making event management seamless.

Google Meet Conferences

Google Meet Conferences

Integrate Google Meet conferences seamlessly into your schedule. Link conferences to appointments effortlessly, enhancing your virtual collaboration experience.

We are pleased to announce the immediate release of AEPIM 6.0.17. This release is dedicated to enhancing app stability, overall performance, and the user experience. Here's what's new:

  • General improvements for a smoother user experience.
  • Resolved synchronization issues of notes with checkboxes via Google.
  • Other bug fixes for increased stability and optimal performance.

The update will automatically reach you in the Google Play store. For those who prefer to download and install it manually, please visit the corresponding Android EPIM page on our website.

After 40 years in data processing, I shouldn't be impressed when a software package like EssentialPIM works, but I am.

Probably the most complicated programming I have done was an online system that enabled field offices countrywide to process transactions in real time. Our tools were COBOL programs, CICS (Customer Information Control System) for the network traffic, and a mainframe database.

I was new to data processing—my background was writing, not computers—so I enrolled in concepts classes and was fascinated by the technology.

Since then, the internet, personal computers, and smartphones have introduced new devices, new operating systems, mobile apps, email, The Cloud and more. Apps like EssentialPIM write to a database, synchronize with diverse services, support multiple concurrent users, host email, encrypt data, and work on both desktop and mobile platforms.

All of this is seamless, if not flawless.

We are excited to share that EssentialPIM 11.7.4 has been released. This update primarily addresses bug fixes that have been identified since the last version of EPIM, along with stability improvements. We highly recommend that all users of previous EPIM versions upgrade to this latest release to enjoy an even more hassle-free organization of your daily tasks and activities.

For a comprehensive list of changes, please refer to the Version History page. To download the latest version, you can visit our Download page or conveniently check for updates directly from within EPIM by going to Help->Check for Updates.
