Power.ME a Good Tool for Solo Use

by P. J. Connolly
AppTime's Power.ME and Power.ME HD do a good job of providing a framework for individuals and ad hoc workgroups. What they offer is a brace of project- and task-management tools that allow users to maintain data synchronization across a range of mobile devices. Currently, iOS devices from Apple are supported, with Android support coming soon, according to the company. A Web client is also available. What they don't offer—yet, anyway—is easy and straightforward integration with the rest of the business. If your need is for something that easily ties into Microsoft Exchange or a CalDAV-based system, keep looking. Although there are some questionable aspects of Power.ME, it's useful as a tool for personal organization. It's easy to create tasks, projects and folders, and to associate them as needed. The synchronization of these with the Power.ME service is impressively seamless. One drawback is the nonstandard user controls for editing and deletion.
