Melon is a personal information manager of a different sort. While not in use, it sits in your System Tray, waiting patiently for you to add items, either notes on a subject that interests you or a reminder to do something (as well as what you need to do when the alarm sounds). Once you’ve added items to it, Melon will hold the bits and pieces of information you define until you’re ready to reference them at a later date. If you created a task, Melon will gently alert you when the deadline is approaching.
With Melon, you don’t need to worry about where you stored your credit card payment confirmation number, which websites you wanted to forward to your colleague or the location of the file containing that code snippet you now need to reference: Melon manages that for you. All you need to do is decide what information you want to keep and/or what you need to do (and when to do it) and let Melon take care of the rest.

Melon stores what’s in your head, so you can focus on getting on with your life.
