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!

bvssunnydale Hi, I'm just wondering if you could provide a version comparison and/or change log link? I have an older version and was just wondering about upgrading. Thanks very much.

Todd User I just want to jump in and say that after all these years, I *still* use Ultra Recall daily as my official "Life Record". To me it's much more than just a journal: I save medical records, calendar events, expenses, exercise reports, and any miscellaneous info that arises throughout the day. It's incredibly stable - I've never had it suddenly crash on me and have never lost any info.

I highly recommend this program.

Gary User is there a way to import a pdf and then view the pdf as a pdf in ultra recall? When I click on import a file it converts the text content of the pdf then just displays the text in ultra recall, but doesn't display the pdf.

Peter User Can this encrypt your data? If so, can you tell it to encrypt some things and not others?

FinanceGuy I have the same question as "Peter User" regarding encryption.
Also.... only 2 months of updates included? Seems kind of stingy....

Kyle A @Gary User: See

@Peter User: Yes, but it's all or nothing.

@Flo: It's all minor updates for the current major release (v6.x), which could be much more than 2 months.

Gary User @Kyle A - I have Acrobat DC Pro, and Power PDF pro - I was hoping ultra recall would deeply the contents of a pdf (instead of just reading the text) in its display window - like the way MyInfo does, or the way win explorer does in preview mode. Instead, it just imports the text, unformated, and unusable, then I have to "edit" the file in one of my external pdf programs.

Kyle A Since Power PDF can embed in IE, it should be able to render PDFs in UR as well (since UR uses IE/MSHTML to embed).


Did you add .pdf to Tools | Options | Browser | File extensions to display in internal browser view?

See here for a discussion of Acrobat Reader which should be similar to Acrobat Pro.

And here for another example (PDF-Xchange):

Gary User @Kyle A - ".pdf" to the list of files to be displayed by the internal browser worked.
