“I wanted to share with you all that I've been using the knowledgebase since the beginning of 2003 and it has been incredible. I have separate databases for work and for personal stuff; it does a great job of keeping things in order while at the same time quite easy to find. Keep up the great work.”

~ Philip, Georgia

“I'm a filmmaker and new media developer and I'm at the very beginning of understanding and using Personal Knowbase to support my work. However even at this early stage I can see it is going to be extremely valuable. I'm in the process of transferring years of research from word processing files containing data into organized Personal Knowbase files containing information. Going from endless scrolling text files to keyword searching is a quantum leap in access. I'm finding relationships in my files I was never aware of before using Personal Knowbase. I'm sure every Knowledge worker and media developer can make good use of this easy to use but deep app.”

~ Roger Wyatt, Saratoga Springs, New York

“Because our office... uses Microsoft products and restricts what we can put on our computers, I had looked to see if I could get by with just using Outlook or some other kludge - but nothing does what your product does so well. The ability to recall notes, ideas, even documents from years ago is very handy!”

~ V. Baker, Nova Scotia, Canada
