I like that it's easy and accessible for everyone. On top of that, it's new on the market and I love trying new things.

I like EPIM/AEPIM because:
1. It's lean and the designers (hopefully) will keep it that way. Don't need an EPIM version of Outlook or TBird or Lotus Notes or Novell GroupWare.
2. It's not democratic (small d.) The designers are not whiplashed by the incessant superficial requests by a minority of users. The designers have a vision and they have been faithful to it.
3. The company is approachable. Unheard of in today's big-tech world.

IMHO - Dan

EPIM is just better then the alternatives. I have tried to replace EPIM but I keep comming back to it since it does the same job as the alternatives, only better.

A few things I like is:
ICAL subscriptions
Sync options, Nextcloud etc.
GUI is consistent over the modules and all the PIM-things are in one program
Stable
That I can (have) buy a lifetime license.

Everyday I find something new in EPIM, something or some option I truly like. I can sort upcoming calendar or tasks in some fashion that no other application has the ability to do. Meanwhile doing a separate search. It is just so flexible and versatile. TY

It's not real spyware, that is me overreacting and that term should be reserved for actual spyware, but the "send "anonomys" data" is really, really bad for a program that was once proud to be "No prism". I did no further inspection of what data was being sent but instead rage reversed to the older version.
Trying out new software I always do in a controlled enviroment inside a Virtual machine. But for EPIM I used the autoupdate feature because EPIM has had a good reputation and I have always trusted EPIM, that ofcource has now changed.

I think this data about usage of programm is a good thing! In my case they would see for esxample, that I never erver use tasks. If there are more people not using tasks, perhaps they will not give such a strong focus on tasks an rather focus for example, on notes? I don´t think they will spy any private data with usages statistics.

I use epim since -at the time I was selecting my PIM- other solutions created duplicated entries, forgot entries, or modified times based on other time zones. epim never created such duplicated entries.
