Derek Cater Info Select 2007 is a great information manager and note-taking software. The bought version (as opposed to the yearly subscription version) is too expensive for me, at $249.95, but I'd very happily pay half that amount.

Mike G I started using Info Select back at version 4, but they took the path of trying to compete directly with products like Microsoft Office and became too bloated and expensive for me. I already have MS Office and mainly just wanted the random information storage and search features including notes, web pages, selected (not all) emails from Outlook, selected image files, etc. For several years I pleaded for a scaled down, less expensive version if Info Select that only had these features, but they only got more bloated and expensive.

I finally discovered Ultra Recall Pro, switched and never looked back! UR has a ton of functionality, grater flexibility and looks way better at a fraction of the cost.

Derek Cater I must admit that I didn't use the email function when I was a subscriber to Info Select 2007 a couple of years back but it would be useful now that I have a desktop and a laptop and no desire keep a multi-gigabyte PST file sychronised between the two.

I rather like the EATKS approach, however, because it allows the programme to function as a self-contained environment to flesh out a variety of project-based information, contained in tables, simple databases, text files and calendars that have a real relevance to me but not to anybody else, so which do not need to be shared. I work with a lot of GIS files that come with a dBase file containing attribute data. Info Select will import this as a perfectly formed grid, where most programmes of this kind fit it into a procrustean text file. Once in Info Select you can search the thousamds of fields with lightning speed and copy and paste information into a text note in the same tree and write away. It is so much neater and faster than endlessly switching between, say, Excel, OneNote and Word to do the same.

I have yet to find such a self-contained programme, even though it's high price has forced me to search far and wide.

Mike G "grater"... too bad we can't edit these posts to fix spelling errors.

Derek, I see you have a need for high-end Info Select features that I never used. If you get a chance to check out Ultra Recall (or if you have already) I'd be curious to know how many of your needs it covers (other than internal email client which UR doesn't have). BTW, UR appeared here on BDJ a month or two ago.

Derek Cater "it's" ...I agree.

I did install UR a year or two back but did not test it out extensively and uninstalled it shortly after, in favour of IS. Two things put me off trying again: it does not have a calendar and it is (almost) orphan ware. Outlook 2007 synchronised with my Nokia E71 takes care of my 'official' calendar but I like to have one or more 'scratchpad' calendars to work out just how I am going to be able meet all of my project commitments. Regarding the orphan ware status, it's not that UR is not a mature enough product as is, rather that I am loath to put a lot of info into a programme that might not run on a future release of Windows. Info Select has almost been orphan ware for several years, which is why I did not renew my subscription, but I understand a new version is in beta.

Kinook is still sending out new builds with bug fixes etc. regularly.
And when being asked about some major changes, they wrote about the next Version:
September '09 is our best guess at the moment. This will be the first v4 release.

(from UR forum, Suggestions/April 2009).

So I would not say it is orphanware.
