Time Management Programs For Psion 3a / 3c / 3mx

With a bit of ingenuity the Agenda application (with it's todo lists) is quite effective for time management. But, once you start working on 'project management', using Agenda can become a bit of a kludge. Fortunately there are some very good time management shareware programs.

These programs approach time/project management in fundamentaly different ways. To start with, you should have a good idea of how you will approach the problem (ToDo Lists, Outlines, Nested notes, Wall Planner, Flow Diagram, Mindmap, GANTT, PERT etc.) and knowing this should help you pick the correct program from the list. Mostly shareware, I'm afraid, but very reasonably priced considering how useful they are and at least you can try them out before paying.
