Konolive is a free group collaboration software for the Adobe Air platform. It has many similarities to Instant Messengers at first glance like the IM-like interface or the ability to add and manage contacts in the application. Everything centers around contacts and activities in the Getting Things Done software.
Activities are tasks at hand that can be defined loosely or in detail depending on the requirements. It takes for example only two clicks and a short test to create a new task in the software. The task can be filled with information at a later time but after its creation a name and owner is associated with it.
A complex activity on the other hand adds due dates, reminders, tags, context, additional users and contents to the basic information. Each activity can be made up of sub-activities.
Contacts can be invited from various sources including Konolive accounts but also external sources like Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, MSN or Plaxo. Keep in mind that the login credentials have to be supplied to connect third-party accounts.
KonoLive can be an interesting alternative to other GTD software programs if the users do not mind the use of Adobe Air. The software has been designed with ease and mind and it is indeed easy and comfortable to work with other users in KonoLive.
Update: KonoLive has been updated in the meantime. A free KonoLive 2Go version for the web and a desktop version called KonoLive Pro.
You can find out more about KonoLive Pro here on the project page, and here about KonoLive 2 Go. KonoLive 2 Go is an Internet application that users can run from a web browser.
We have uploaded the latest version of the application to our own server. Note that it may not function properly anymore as the company servers are not available anymore. We are also not supporting the software in any way. To download it anyway, click on the following link: KonoLive.zip
Update: The KonoLive website is no longer available. Please check out our Thinking Rock instead.
