@satis

I started this new thread so as not to hijack the security thread.

I have rarely—at least not in recent years—been as enthusiastic about software as I am of Legend. It has really “sync’d” with my brain, I think. The more I use it, the more impressed I am. It isn’t perfect, but the developers continually improve it.

It’s Google-centric only in that its calendar syncs with Google Calendar. But you don’t need to do this. I don’t use Google Calendar, by my iCalendar syncs with Google and consequently with Legend. I’ve only just started using the Legend calendar more, so I may uncover some inconveniences, but so far so good.

I’ve written about Legend a few times on Medium. Here are links to those articles:

They should give you a good idea of how it works… or at least how Legend works for me.

I’d like to hear how it works for you. It renamed itself from Moo.Do just last summer, and I remember it being fairly limited to living inside Google apps (and Google’s storage) when I checked it out under the previous name.

Thanks for the links to these articles, Stephen.  I found them helpful and you explained Legend quite well.  I had passed over the program when they re-branded, but now might give it some consideration if I need those unique tools you described.

I keep taking another look at Legend, and it is remarkably powerful. I need to sit down with it for an extended session.

I tried Legend two or three times before it finally connected with me. For me, it was definitely worth the effort.

A correction: When I said the only Google-centric feature of Legend is the Google Calender sync, I had forgotten about the email function, which only syncs to Gmail. I just want to make that clear.

Carry on.
