Please note: today's discount can be applied to either the Standard or Professional versions of Ultra Recall!

Ultra Recall is a personal information and document management app that gives you the power to manage all of your data, regardless of its source or location, in one centralized spot. With Ultra Recall, you never need to remember which application holds your data -- all of it is instantly available on demand, no matter where it's located.

What kinds of data are we talking about? How about all of your Microsoft Office files, all of your Outlook messages, appointments, contacts, and notes, any email program that supports the .eml format, websites bookmarked in all of the major internet browsers, and every file on your hard disk, including ZIP archives? Even images, text, online documents, and clipboard data can be fully organized into an on-demand database with Ultra Recall! Populating Ultra Recall is ultra-easy - just drag and drop, copy and paste, or enter your information manually.

When it's time to retrieve all of the information that you need on a topic, just enter your search term into the Quick or Advanced Search, and Ultra Recall will display all of your matching items. Quick Search retrieves a list of matching items in a flash, or use the more detailed Advanced Search to pull information out of the database with surgical precision using logical operators! Each of your data items comes with an attributes list that tells you everything you need to know about that file.

Finding your data is just the first step. Everything that you need to view, organize, and work with your data is neatly contained in Ultra Recall. Use the integrated web browser to view your bookmarked sites, or the rich text editor to open text files. Images display in the image viewer, and the native email message viewer, contact editor, and form viewer round out the arsenal of convenient features. Of course, you can always elect to open web pages and documents in their associated application, but with such robust integration, you may never need to leave the program!

Kelly Hamblin Did Ultra Recall always have both Standard and Professional versions? I was wondering because I have an earlier version installed on my computer and I can't tell what version it is.

Kyle Alons Since v3. It looks like you have UR v3 Standard edition. Help | About | Install Info would show 'Ultra Recall 3.x' rather than 'Ultra Recall Professional 3.x'.

peter schleifer In answering a roadmap question above, you said:

Enhanced calendar pane
Keywords pane / tagging improvements
Add columns to Data Explorer pane
Custom sorting in tree

Now this "Custom sorting in tree" intrigues me vary much (whilst for others, tagging perhaps is more important): What do you mean about it? By which attributes such a tree would be sortable, and would it sort any entry in the tree, regardless of its current indentation level? And I suppose (since if not, such "sorting" would not be of interest) that you can switch forth and back between "sorted view" and "tree view" then, or at least automatically reconstitute the previous tree view, after such sorting?

I try to put my question in other words:

By what attributes?

You do NOT mean sorting just the siblings under one parent item, but you speak of sorting all let's say 200 children, of ANY indentation level, of a given parent item?

And afterwards/alternatively, the tree, as it was before sorting, is not destroyed by this but is there, too?

When can we expect this feature? Within 12 months, or would this be too optimistic?

I'm asking since development of Ultra Recall seems to have been a little bit on the slow side, lately, but not-destructive sorting of the whole tree (or any part of it) would be a tremendously useful feature - if it was really available, that is.
Oct 27 2013 at 1:53pm Copy Link
Mariusz Lewandowski @peter schleifer:
"not-destructive sorting of the whole tree (or any part of it) would be a tremendously useful feature"

It is already there: in the Data Explorer pane expand the parent item with child items to be sorted, select any child item in the expanded list, right-click, select "Sort Siblings". The exanded items are sorted whilst the whole tree stays intact. To unselect "Sort Siblings" option: Shift+Ctrl+Up/Down arrow to move any item up/down.

Brian De Bragança I can thoroughly recommend this software to anyone considering buying it. It is the best P.I.M., Notes and Projects Organiser, Scrapbook and similar functions in its class and is better than One Note, Evernote and similar offerings by a long way. Its integration into Internet Explorer and Firefox and the Windows Shell works flawlessly and is a big plus.
If it has a flaw it is that it is not updated very often but it is already so full-featured (especially the Pro version) and easy-to-learn that you'll be satisfied with it straight away.
I have no connection with Kinook (the developers) and so this recommendation is completely voluntary.

Hawkeye I have to say this is one of the best programs of it's kind. You can easily track track a lot of information easily, including websites. After you have used it for awhile, you wonder how you ever got a long without it.

You can't beat the price. I got the Pro version, the last time it was offered here.

Download the trial and try it. You won't be disappointed.

I am one happy customer, if you haven't already noticed.

James Crowley Jr wrote: "Are there any plans for any kind of mobile version or interface in the future?"

Kyle Alons responded: "No plans for that currently."

But on the version comparison page, under "Core Features", the last item "Portable (run from USB drive)" is listed as a distinction between standard and pro. Am I misunderstanding something, or is this an error on the website, or ...?

Faisal Humayun Kyle -
This is what I see using the UR browser (i've enabled the scripts downloading feature per your instructions).

For my usecase, I'm very interested in syncing my instapaper, read it later, go-pocket, evernote content into UR. Having this feature makes this a deal maker or breaker for me.

Faisal Humayun Oh I see. UR is hooked into IE. I had a security solution which disabled that in IE (since I'm a Firefox/Chrome user). Re-enabling it got it working. Thanks. I'm testing to see if I can capture all the content now. If this works as I hope it does, you have a customer. Thank you.

bvssunnydale Hi, I have ver 4 (purchased 1/16/12) but never have really used it (I call it an "aspirational" purchase). Could you provide a link showing the changes from ver 4 to the whatever the most recent version is, 5 I think). Thanks.
Oct 28 2013 at 4:58pm Copy Link
VLM Kyle Alons - Thanks for this response: "A mobile version would be one that runs on a mobile device such as iPad, iPhone, Android tablet, etc." So the distinction is between mobile and portable, that's clear ... now. :):)

Now another question ... From above, Is UR going to force me into Internet Explorer at times? I would not want that to happen ... ever.
Oct 28 2013 at 5:49pm Copy Link
Kyle Alons UR uses an embedded instance of Internet Explorer for displaying web pages within UR. That is the only option if you want to view web pages within UR (you don't have to though--clear out 'Tools | Options | Browser | File extensions to display in internal browser view' and don't use the address bar for browsing in UR).
Kinook Software, Inc. - Oct 28 2013 at 6:31pm Copy Link
VLM Kyle, would it be fair to say that UR pushes in the direction of a document management tool? Or is that an overstatement or misstatement, perhaps?
Oct 28 2013 at 8:29pm Copy Link
Kyle Alons Yes, UR can be used a document management tool. It's pretty flexible, and there is quite a bit to evaluate. These might give you an idea of what it can do:

UR databases (.urd extension) can be created and stored on any writeable drive on your system. Use File | New on the menu and browse/enter the location to create the file.
Kinook Software, Inc. - Oct 28 2013 at 8:40pm Copy Link
H. H. Hallo,
some questions

1. is there a limitation of the database-size - where the program begins to become too slow, or instable? - what´s the recommended limitation of database size?

2. is there a synchronization feature for synchronizing between e.g. a Ultra recall Installation on pc or Notebook or usb-stick?

2. is there a possibility to set a page layout when using the note editor?
I think it would be a very useful feature since in many occasions the built in rich text editor would meet the requirements of writing an ordinary letter or own memos. But without the ability to format a page one has to export to an office osftware. If not yet implemented, will it be on your todo list?

Oct 29 2013 at 3:39am Copy Link
Kyle Alons 1.

2. No, but you can edit .urd files on a USB stick or transfer them between computers using file copy, a file sync tool, etc.

3. What do you mean by page layout? The rich text editor provides formatting capabilities (fonts, styles, colors, highlighting, hyperlinks, tabs, tables, etc.), and you can choose layout options for printing via print preview (margins, headers, footers, portrait/landscape, etc.).

JL Hi,

Is there any option to clear the history list and a way to go back to the default or to the desired UR saved settings?

It seems to me that UR has a lot of setting to customize. I would like to be able to save some of the customizations to be able to recall them back. For example, to be able to import web pages and only need to choose a desired importing profile from a list.
Oct 29 2013 at 5:03am Copy Link
Kyle Alons Which history list? In the address bar or quick search drop-down, pressing Delete remove the selected item from the drop-down list (with the drop-down list displayed, use up/down arrow keys to select an item and Delete to remove it).

See here for backing up and restoring settings:

What do you mean by 'a desired importing profile'? Using File | Import, you can save/select different settings via Save settings as/Use saved settings fields.

H. H. @ Kyle Alons
thank you for responding

regardin question 1) I read the Forum link where is written theoretical max of 2Tb, practical expierence with mostly 300mb, some 5gb. Since the article is from 2004, is there any more practical experience regarding the database size? 1gb e.g. can be a lot, when mainly storing text files, but not much space, when having to store Office documents with embedded pictures, pdf files,...
I was considering, if Ultra recall could be helpful for saving webpages, but since they mostly have pictures embedded, 5gb does not seem too much.
But perhaps inbetween the size, People have practical experience with databases larger than they have been tested 9 years ago?

regarding question3) The Page print preview is close to what I meant, but what I mean is a page preview already during writing, which allows to see, (without always switching to print preview) how much e.g. A4 pages the text one is writing requires. When writing in Ultra recall one has no orientation during writing (office programs allow to see the line - and pagebreak during writing).

Thank you for clarifying and apologize my mistakes in english language

Oct 29 2013 at 6:42am Copy Link
Kyle Alons You should be able to store quite a few files in a 5GB db. I haven't heard of many DBs larger than that. I have two main databases. One stores all email messages, including attachments, for the last 15 years (~35,000 messages and about 400MB in size). The other is my main organizational database, including quite a few imported web pages, PDFs, text files, notes, etc. (~6,000 items and 100MB). I would imagine larger databases would be more manageable now with the faster hard drives of today.

There isn't a page layout view in UR while editing. You would need to edit externally in Word for that (Item | Open Document or Ctrl+J).
Kinook Software, Inc. - Oct 29 2013 at 7:16am Copy Link
JL OK thanks for the information Kyle Alons. So it lacks of a full clean but I could delete everything manually. Is it possible to delete the url of the previous imported page? It is displayed when you want to import a new one.

So the backup function is not integrated in the gui. Thanks for the manual steps procedure.
“What do you mean by 'a desired importing profile'?” Sorry, it was my fault, wrong example.
Oct 29 2013 at 7:32am Copy Link
Kyle Alons It remembers the previous settings. You can just clear out the field. But it's probably more common to import web pages via the browser integration, copy/paste, drag/drop, or global import hotkey.

Matt Hi Kyle,

I purchased UR Pro and am running the 'portable' version on my local C drive.

1. Is it normal to have registry entries and files within AppData\Roaming created when running the portable version?

2. And does it still hold true in 'backing up and restoring settings' on a portable installation, that you only need to back up the .dat and .ini files even though the above mentioned registry entries and files were created?

Thank you.

MojoMan Hi Kyle,

I would love to see a couple more document management functions in UR.... Which are probably outside the scope of what UR is intended to be.

One would be to have the ability to actually scan documents into UR. The other would be to have the ability to embed spreadsheets into notes. OneNote does have these functions, but it is otherwise a different animal altogether.

Just thought I'd add to the wishlist... Just in case :)
Oct 29 2013 at 4:52pm Copy Link
VLM Kyle, you write: "You should be able to store quite a few files in a 5GB db." I have about 20 GB of email history, so this would not even come close for me. That said, I was not planning on storing email in UR, but rather using it other ways.
