Chronos has introduced SOHO Organizer 7.0 and Notes 7.0.

SOHO Organizer ($49.99) is described as the smart alternative to iCal and Address Book, and this is a major upgrade to that application. The software offers much better flexibility in defining recurring tasks, offers day, week and month views and much easier navigation of contacts.

Additional features include the capacity to print calendars, automatic age calculations, custom task sorting and activity reports. Numerous bug fixes have also taken place across this application.

SOHO Notes 7.0 ($39.99) makes it easier to attach tasks to notes and embed tasks in notes. Tasks optionally sync with tasks in iCal.

A new Details sidebar makes it easy for users to see and edit note attributes including size, tags, comments, and attachments. Users can also import tab delimited and CSV data directly into Forms that they define.

A fully functional 30 day trial version of both applications is available for download from the company.
