Where to start with this immense program has been a hard choice. I guess I’ll start with this tidbit, AMF PIM is a 32-bit, fully network compliant, Internet enabled PIM (Personal Information Manager). It about does it all!

Working with the program is very easy, it’s not hard to learn, it takes a good while to investigate and use all it’s features but it’s worth taking a look at it. If you need a PIM, this is a good one!

One of my first choices that I find very useful it supports a full drag and drop interface. This makes it real easy to use. You have a perpetual calendar at you fingertips, and a daily planner, this I really need. AMF PIM really looks nice, but the many multiple features are make the program fly.

It contains a Rolodex Style Phonebook, Yellow Pages and White Pages with full searching capabilities included. This is really useful if you have lots of contacts to keep up with.

As with the other programs I’ve done reviews on, I still like the fact that it will minimize to the System Tray!
