Pagico is a personal database that helps you to manage and keep track of everything: notes, tasks, lists, files, projects and contacts. You can store all kinds of things in its database, and Pagico will get everything neatly organized, and remind you of upcoming (and overdue, of course) tasks. Rather than just overwhelming you with lists of todo's, Pagico presents all your upcoming schedule in a visually appealing chart.

Pagico is different than most other task planning programs. Here are a few highlights:

Best App on the Market for Project Management or just being an elite professional

- Blow's Omnifocus right out of the water

- Ability to drag any document type into the database including emails

- This application literally paid for itself within 10 minutes of using it!

I love this app and the cross-functionality between MAC, IOS and my work Windoze computers. I have tried many others from Things, Paperless, FIretask, and Devonthink to name a few and this has been the best so far for my purposes. I like the separate workspaces and being able to segregate my work life from personal.

Support is fantastic and I liked it so much I licensed across all of my computers and devices so that I can have access to all of my data no matter where I am located. Also at a reasonable price.

The only drawback, or thing I don't like, is the limitation of devices on the personal workspace - 4 devices. I have so many different computers, IOS and windows devices and VM's but I am sure I am not the norm, plus it allows them to upwell the small team workspace at $5 a month.

Give the demo a try and you will be hooked, I promise you. The best organizational GTD app I have used IMHO.

I have been evaluating Pagico for two weeks now and ended up buying the software (single seat for now). I was willing to spend the money since I believe that the Pagico has great potential.

For now I feel that the software can facilitate your project planing but there are still many things that could be improved.

PROS:
- The support was (in my case) rather fast. I got an answer to all my questions within 12 hours or less. (Abstract of the Q&A below)
- There is a great visualisation of your tasks ahead.
- You can view all tasks (that are located in the same database) at once. Giving you a good idea of free time slots.
- The Link future has great potential. I will use it with all my projects as it is a great tool to link subtasks to there parents.
- The Interface is nicely done. It is well structured and displays relevant information.

CONS:
- Workspace: iOS App requieres use of "workspace" on Pagico servers. The information stored on these servers is accessible to Pagico (e.g. no encryption of data). This is a big drawback from my point of view as I can not use Pagico for sensible projects. Between desktop versions it is possible to sync databases between computers by alternative means (Cloud storage, self hosted server, etc). Even if this poses additional risks to the database integrity this option would be preferred by me as I could encrypt the transferred data.
- Interface (Modern UI): The interface is (at first glance) brilliant. Working with the interface can however be tedious.
> The clean interface hides nearly all buttons. While moving the mouse through a project the continuos appearance and disappearance of buttons is quite annoying.
> Hitting the right button is not always easy as they will only appear once you are close to there location. Necessary corrections using time.
> The interface is not always clear as to where you are editing information.
> When creating a new "List" it is only possible to give it a name after at least two tasks have been defined. I assume this is done since single tasks don't require a list title. I would however prefer that the list title is the first thing I enter and is turned into a single task if no list content (tasks) are defined. The way it is right now I always have to get back to the top of a list before I can continue to create the next.
- There are additional critics I still have but I would like to look into them a little bit longer before I continue here.

Q&A with support (abstract)
Q: Do you have access to my workspace?
A: We can see all the server-side sync logs for troubleshooting purposes. [...]

When you use the workspace service, a copy of your shared data will be stored on our server. But we have no intention to access it. If it’s necessary for a troubleshooting attempt, we’ll let you (workspace owner) know and obtain a written permission before we access your data (join your workspace).

Q: If you have access, what can you see?
A: [...] Technically speaking, your shared data stored on our server is accessible to us. This includes the content of your workspace and attached files. [...]

Q: Do I have to use your workspace if I want to use your iOS app?
A: The workspace sync functionality was designed and developed specifically for Pagico. It’s not just a file sharing service, and Pagico requires a lot more than a file sharing system to effectively sync data across your devices. This is why the Pagico Plus for iOS requires the workspace functionality to sync data.

We currently have no plan to support 3rd party sync services such as dropbox, because of the different needs / functionalities Pagico has. [...}

I have just been made aware that the files stored in the pagico cloud are indeed encrypted. I will edit (if I can figure out how to) my original review to clarify this part asap.

On the basis of what you asked, I went through these comments and ratings. I found quite a few of them which were from the developer, and he hadn't even tried to hide the fact that he was praising and rating his own work. I've removed those ratings.

Newer tools give developers the power to hide this kind of dishonest behavior, and there's very little we can do to combat it if it isn't clear-cut. Thanks for pointing it out, Rubaiyat.

Hi,
This is Ryo from Pagico. All the reviews below are genuine --- we don't pay for false comments. We do pay to buy advertisements in the regular channels, but for reviews we just talk to writers and invite them to evaluate our apps. Some of the comments below are just their opinions.

We at Pagico try hard to produce high quality products and we listen to our customers. That is probably one of the reasons we get nice comments on MacUpdate.

Hope this makes some sense. Thank you!

Pagico 6 is a powerful, attractive, reliable and GTD-compatible project management app. I love seeing all my information (contacts, files, notes and task lists) in the one place and in a versatile format that I can tinker with as my needs change. Definitely worth the investment, as are the mobile apps for iPhone and iPad.

I am a researcher in a graduate school. In my everyday life, I have to deal with a lot of chores in various projects. Pagico is very helpful for my life.

I use to use google calendar, mac reminder. Well they are simple... they can sync across devices... but it is hard for me to link those tasks together. Pagico looks like designed according to get things done(GTD) theory.It can help me split my object down into series of tasks. It can very easy to collect the chores and ideas that pop out from my mind randomly, especially from its iphone app.
I really appreciate that they add the cloud storage and sync function.

The design of the interface is very simple and efficient.

I would like to recommend it to everyone...

Pagico fits perfect for me and my business. I tried a lot of programs with my work like OmniFocus or Devon for organizing. Though the program is easy to handle, I think it needs an extensive use before it shows its qualities. Maybe because Pagico doesn't force you to a certain workflow, but is highly adaptable to your own way of working. V 6 brings a lot of impovements (easy interlinking of notes, (due) dates addresses) which make Pagico nearly a CRM too. For this the price of the program is excellent. And least but not least the yhav a really friendly and super fast support!!

HenningH5991 had trouble on 26 Sep 2013
Hello
although i really start to like this program i have a problem, which i really hope to solve before i definitely buy the full version.

My problem: When i set a new project and want to link a couple of notes of different contacts to this specific project they appear as an ordered list, which i really like. The problem is, that most of the linked notes in the list do show some kind of a "preview-text", which covers (and hides) the other notes in the list. The consequence is, that the list is finally unreadable (or at least hardly readable).

Does anybody know what i can do to solve this problem? I hope there is a solution, because i actually really like this program.

Thank you and best regards.

I was interested in purchasing at your discount price, but in trying out trial version I could not find any way to edit the contact info that I dragged from Apple addressbook. I could not find any help to address this issue.

Is it possible to copy an entire mailing name/address with a single action such that it can be pasted into a postage program such as stamps.com or Endicia with one paste?

Please advise if you can extend your offer.

I really hope there's an answer/solution for this issue, because I'm liking the possibilities here ... not sure whether it's because it's a demo version (and I don't want to pay to find out), but after changing window views the dates for some tasks in the dashboard (Gantt-ish) preview are suddenly set to start and finish "today", when I had assigned different dates to finish.

The visual timeline is one of the things that most appeals to me about this app; obviously, if there's a glitch re: arbitrary date changing it renders the software unusable.

Anyone else having this issue? Please let me know if there's something I'm missing; I didn't see anything (in preferences or other menu options) that might explain why this is happening. I have 11 projects with 1-4 scheduled subtasks in each one (MacBook Pro/10.6.4).

Hi,
I'm sorry for the inconvenience, and I'm sure I can sort it out for you very quickly. Right now, I'm not too sure exactly what you changed caused whose start and finish date to "today". Would you mind clarifying it a bit for me?
If you'd like to send over screenshots, that would be tremendously helpful. If so, please send an email to support[at]pagico.com.

Thank you!

Hi,

Thanks for your quick response.

Okay, I've realised what caused the date changes ... I had quite a few tasks with start dates of "today" and finish dates anywhere from "tomorrow" to a week or longer from now ... some of those were more urgent than others so I dragged them from "might do" into the "must do" section, which caused them to have a start and finish date of "today". Is there a way to add them to the "must do" section without losing the finish date I entered?

I'm liking a lot of what I see in your software and have high hopes that it will be a solution for my particular workflow. A few features I would love:

— the ability to reorder projects in the dashboard by drag & drop; for the current alphabetical sorting I'm giving projects a priority number at the beginning of their name so that the most urgent ones will show up at the top of the chart; interestingly, they don't show up alphabetically in the Projects page when I click on Title ... drag & drop functionality here would be appreciated as well

— the ability to collapse projects in the dashboard; that would help to focus on one at a time as well as allow all (or at least more) projects to be visible in one window

— the ability to sort individual tasks in the dashboard according to their start or due dates, regardless of which project they're in

— the ability to adjust spacing between text lines; it's visually appealing and spacious right now but I'd like to have the option to see more items on one page

Thanks for your time & attention!

@Soberberg,
It's kind of hard to keep track of our conversation here, so it would be great if you could send me emails directly for future messages.

When you drag items from the Must Do to Might Do (or vise versa), Pagico re-schedules the task automatically. But I'll make sure it doesn't change the Start Date as well in our future releases.

The ability to fold and expand projects in the dashboard flowchart is already implemented in our upcoming v5. And we love that feature.


In terms of making the projects sortable, text line spacing and things like that, we'll have to see what we can do and I can't guarantee you at this point (we're too close to v5's release date to add any substantial features).

Hope you could understand.

Thanks!

Just a prewarning....

This app adds an apache config file to your /private/etc/httpd/users/

It totally screwed up my apache config for my local environment... i ended up wasting half the morning at work figuring out what was wrong with my apache config because apache would not start.

Thanks for your reply.

We're doing whatever we can to make it harmless to your apache configurations so we used sub-configuration files that is not going to conflict with your system.

But as you're having the issue, I really would like to know more about it so we can improve our installer.

Thanks!
