The install was easy. It like all good programs these days lets
you install it where you want. When I opened it for the first time I got a 30
day nag screen. Then when it opens the first choice you are faced with is the
mode that you want it to run in either Basic or Advanced. I choose Advanced.
Then I opened the Help file to figure out how to use it and got that nag screen
Ok here is what you get. TreePad PLUS is essentially a database tool for making
your own databases in either a flat file or tree file. The beauty of it is that
it is intuitive and will easily walk you through the needed steps to create the
type of database that best suits your needs. I don't want you to get the idea
that it is a basic featureless tool. In fact it is just the opposite. You can
use hyperlinks and other tools. In fact here are some of the ways that other
users have had for TreePad PLUS:
Personal information manager
Office on a floppy
Easy Intranet-site generation tool
Instant Website generation tool
To-do list manager
Electronic Photo Album
I am just listing a few the list is much bigger. In general you have a tree view
on the left and your data on the right a method that works very well. You can
explode trees and contract them just as if you are using Windows Explorer. You
can jump from place to place with hyperlinks. There is lots more too but you
should check that all out yourself.
And oh yes I forgot to mention that the program size is small something really
nice to see in this era of bloat ware.
Hey if you just need a simple data base tool they even recommend you use their
freeware version. You can't ask for more!
In conclusion. If you are reading this you are probably looking for a PIM or
database tool. If so this one is well worth trying.
Try It! Buy It!
