Product Watch: PDA's In The Mist
Ten separate views including a weekly view with text in 1, 2 and half-week displays, a monthly view of both appts and ToDo's with icons, 4-month, yearly and list views.
DateBk4 and its predecessor DateBk3 use identical databases to Palm's Datebook and to-do applications, making it 100% compatible with your desktop software. Registration costs $24.95 or $10 if you are upgrading from DateBk3, entirely reasonable for such a feature rich program. The icing on the cake is that your registration fee supports Dewar Wildlife Fund, Inc. which provides funding to various wildlife conservation programs including a sanctuary for Western Lowland Gorillas in the North Georgia Mountains.
"...I will encourage ALL DateBk3 users to pay the $10 upgrade [plans are in the works to implement a free update system] as all this revenue is donated to wildlife conservation and in particular, I plan to make a substantial contribution this year towards the conservation of gorillas in Africa. Recently, scientists have discovered that rather than three sub-species as was previously thought, there are actually TWO separate species of gorillas (Western and Eastern) and FIVE sub-species. Two of these sub-species (the Cross River and as yet unnamed Bwindi Forest gorillas) are among the most critically endangered species on the planet, and I intend to do what I can to assist those that work on the front-lines in their conservation efforts."

If you are tight on space you might want to consider DateBk3 which uses about half the space of DateBk4. Development of DateBk3 continues and there are plans for a "lite" version of DateBk incorporating some of the more popular features of both versions. Time limited trial versions are available
MSRP: $24.95 ($10 update for registered DateBk3 users)
