My thanks to Internodal, the makers of Agenda Minder, for sponsoring Macdrifter this week. I don’t carry a lot of sponsors but I like to think the sponsors I work with are the best people out there.

Is Pagico 7 the easy-to-use app to replace OmniFocus and Bento for your data task management? Sponsor

My thanks to Pagico for sponsoring Macdrifter this week. The new version looks fantastic. It looks so good that I’m running a longer than usual ad copy. Pagico runs on multiple platforms, makes reference material a core feature (like I do) and syncs everywhere. Some apps are great at managing projects & tasks, and others are great at managing data. Pagico 7 is one of the few apps that combines data organization with task management into one easy-to-use package.

From Bento to Tap Forms, the Triumph of the Personal Database

Thanks to this week’s sponsor, Tap Forms. I guess I have several reasons to thank them.
