It seems GemX have renewed life and their new version 4 is kickass.
I love their new bug tracker so we users can report bugs and request new features. The new version feels faster and more stable than before. I'm really happy now. Especially as they have a roadmap for all to see and the things on it are really quite exciting.

Thumbs up and kudos to the gemmy dev team for renewing life into this great bit of software.

I am a many-year user of TexNotes but their website is totally unresponsive and the company appears to be defunct. DoOrg development also appears to be at a standstill. I am looking (in panic) for a TexNotes alternative in order to export my thousands of notes...

This software was awful. Groggy and slow, it slowed down my entire system. Appears to be feature rich but most tools are redundant i.e. scribe, journal and notes..all the same.

I have to note that the developer seems to have a renewed committment to this product. As an organizer, I still find it a little clunky, but it is unsurpassed as a Journal.

If only developers hear the customers...
It will be the best PIM if devcelopers do their work, otherwise the software seems discontinued as the other products from Gem-X.

Forums closed after some customer complaints. I aslo made my complaints in their blog and some days later the blog was closed and dissapear from their website. They launch the 3.0.9 update but I can't see any change, always same stupid bugs, no improvements, no hearing customer...

A great program without future, so that's my 1 point.

If Gem-X can't afford the development of their products, it's better to sell the software to good programmers or make it open source so the people who paid for their software will be listen.

I can't bring myself to give this a one - it held great promise and would be a world beater if it was finished. However, as others have noted it is buggy and apparently no longer supported. The developers closed down the support forums in mid-August (right after I purchased a licence) to "migrate to a different server" and they have never reappeared. E-mails, DSM, and comments to their blog are met with absolute, deafening silence, no updates or news have been released since June and they are not even responding to refund requests. My advice to anyone considering ANY GemX product is BUYER BEWARE - you will be paying for unsupported software.

This could be a nice product, pretty complete, if, yes if there were not those quite obvious bugs.
And then one gets to know the really really horrible service, customer abusing included.
I tried the evaluation version which, as they say, is the same as the licensed version.
There is quite a number of very obvious bugs in the program which could have been eliminated during beta phase easily. This is simply negligent programming.
Once you tell them and complain it won't be long until they insult you, start wasting your time and try letting you, the customer do their work.

They claimed that v3.09 was going to be released over 2 months ago to fix the very annoying reminders bug (Where reminders popup repeatedly even after being dismissed, and also popping up PRIOR TO THE reminder setup in the event) yet this has not been the case. Their forums have been down "for a server move" for over 2 weeks now, they arent responding to email support or DSM support (their touted support mechanism), and phone calls to them are going unreturned after leaving messages during NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS.

They recently (about 3 months ago) added me to the beta test team, I guess as a way to silence me from posting such negative reviews, but there has been almost NO activity on that front as only 1 beta release has been posted since my being allowed access to it.

The software is good, but I keep finding more bugs which get their standard "Maybe/Someday" tag on their forums meaning that they arent sure whether or not they will fix it.

I am tempted to ask for a refund since the support I am "receiving" is far worse than any I've encountered thus far. The fact that it took me nearly 2 weeks to receive registration info after purchase was unacceptable, and the way I am being treated as a PAYING customer is preposterous.

Do-organizer is pretty good software. It is original and allows for a lot of customisation. As PIMs go, its one of the best. As stated below however, they publicise their excellent customer support. My experience is that this couldn't be further from the truth. If you buy their software, prepare yourself for a lot of aggrivation. They ignore their users, insult them and are generally very arrogant. They basically do not have the people skills to do proper customer support. Its a shame that they cannot see this and their company and software will suffer as a result of this unless they get their act together.

I agree with the last reviewer that support is really the sore point with this software. The software looks very promising, but trying to register with the forums or even contacting their support directly is almost impossible...

For the past week and a half, I have been trying to register with GemX.com's support forums. This has been a trial and more trouble than I have ever had to go through to get support from what seems to be a good company on the surface. They have "Admin approval" setup for all forum accounts. This is all well and good if the admins MONITORED IT. I have had to re-register 5 times and each time my account is deleted after 24 hours after being in "Pending admin approval" status. I have sent numerous emails to them asking about the status of my account. I have even had a buddy of mine use his VoIP line and call them only to get no answer on the number listed on their site. People rave about their support, however, I cannot get support when I am trying to evaluate their program and contemplating shelling out $90 for their product. This is a poor practice if you ask me.

I have tried every possible contact method only to not get any response via any of them. I even Priority mailed a letter asking these same questions to them and I got delivery confirmation so I know it was received.

This product is unmatched. It has so many features you wont know what to do with it. You pay only for the modules you require which makes it greater although some of these should be default for an Info Manager (contacts, calendar). Even offering a pre-built package which is discounted over purchasing the modules separately would be nice.

That said, if I can ever get ahold of their support to answer my trial questions, I will gladly pay for this program. But until then, this program gets a 2/5 for poor customer support and a few bugs which might be getting addressed in a future release (I have no way of knowing since I cannot use their forums).

I have already purchased the base program via trialpay, and gotten no response from anyone at GemX. I plan to shell out alot of extra money (alot for me) for the modules I require (contacts, calendar, tasks, planner, reports, etc) but if I cannot get ahold of anyone, I will be asking for a refund of the money I paid to trialpay for obtaining this copy.

Also, to davidbean, just because you dont have bugs and someone else does, doesnt mean they are working for the competition or have something agsinst GemX. I have nothing against GemX but I dont like the fact that I've registered the base program via their trialpay system and cant even get a forum account registered for the past 1.5 weeks or a confirmation email with my product key for their base program.

Wow! GemX scores very high for me in support. It sure outdoes many sites I know... I've always had excellant service from them and the software is outstanding! I seriously doubt the motives of people who say they deserve a (1 or 2) rating... I even question the honesty of such a report...

This is by far the best planner software I've tried yet -- and I've tried a lot of them.

At first it was a bit intimidating because there are just so many features, but it really didn't take as long as I first thought to get the hang of it. It does everything that I've always wanted planner software to do and then some. I really couldn't be more impressed.

And it's so customizable. I love that. As much time as I spend working with a planner, I want to make it "me" and I can do that with this more so than with anything else I've tried.

I don't know why "rudnick" is having problem with GemX support. My experience with their support is very satisfactory. I always had a relevant answers and offer of help when needed.

I have purchased doO version 2 and have been happily using it since for my all kinds of information organization needs. True there has been some bugs but I haven't seen any other software developers fixing knowing bugs as fast as Gemx Software. I have updated to version 307 and I don't agree with rudnick's claim of full of bugs. Simply it's not true. This leads me to think that rudnick may either has something against Gemx software or talking on behalf of competition. As a long standing user of this application I found hard to accept rudnick's claims.

Keep up the good work Gemx software. Don't let people like rudnick put you off.
