Major change in UI

Comment by ChaosDrop
about EssentialPIM May 2016

---update---
As of Version 7.2 the UI working space has been mostly recovered and in many ways is now more efficient then it was before.

---old---
Just figured I'd let people know I tried out the RC for version 7 that was just releases to and the interface has been changed in a major and IMO rather negative space wasting way.

It also doesn't look very nice under windows classic theme whereas version 6 looks pretty nice. I'm lightly visually impaired so this is a major blow to me as the main reason I stick to the windows classic themes on windows 7 is because they are vastly better then the accessibility themes in 8 & 10.

So if you value working space, and a clean accessible look under windows classic themes I'd advise sticking to version 6.

My like for this app is for version 6, I think 7 adds some intresting features, but none of them are worth the UI shift... it's a strange shift. The layout is good but for some reason they added a ton of strange "padding?" it doesn't make it work any better on my tablet so you can't even say it's for touch friendliness.

Thunderbird/SeaMonkey + Lightning are the closer open source alternatives to EssentialPIM?

Comment by reiaasu
about EssentialPIM and Lightning, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey Sep 2015

EssentialPIM has calendar, to do list, notes, contacts, email and password list.

Thunderbird/SeaMonkey + Lightning have all these features, minus notes and password list. These two missing features can be supplemented by other open source software, such as Cherrytree and Password Gorilla.

So, I believe Thunderbird/SeaMonkey + Lightning are the open source softwares that have the feature set that comes closer to EssentialPIM.

about EssentialPIM Jun 2011

This software is so well made, I can't see a reason to use anything else! It allows custom fields (say you want to record "next call date" for some or each of the clients in the database), it can remind you of birthdays, appointments.

The search features are AMAZING - results updated as you type!
