One of the coolest online organizers I've seen

I saw this on Techcrunch a few weeks ago and haven’t had time to look closely until today.  Skrybe, which hasn’t officially launched yet, is a browser-based organizer that lets you edit and interact with your data whether you’re connected to the internet or not.  Check out the short video over view on the Skrybe site and I’m certain you’ll be impressed.  It offers:

  • Seamless offline access - without any installations
  • Rich and fast like a desktop
  • Intuitive zoomable calendar views
  • Organize your thoughts with bookmarks, web snippets, images and files
  • To-do lists integrated with your calendar
  • Share and collaborate with friends and co-workers
  • Elegant, compact and handy print formats
  • Easily work across multiple timezones
  • Import and export from other apps easily. Your data is yours!

I was most impressed by three things:

1.  The way Skrybe handles time-zones seems to be intuitive and very easy to use.  It’s one of the few products I’ve seen that assume that you’ll be working with people in various time-zones and visually helps you set appointments with them.  Very cool.

2.  The zoomable calendar looks very slick.  It’s fast and again, intuitive to use.

3.  Skrybe allows you to print out your data in a format that is formatted in such a away as to make it easy to fold up and take with you.

Again, take a look at the video and see what you think.  The seems like the first app I’ve seen in a while that seems to begin with the actual, day-to-day needs of regular people.  We’ll see when the product goes public.

I think it has some nice things to offer, and I say 'dude' regularly ;)

Who knows...it may actually get me to using my handheld again.
