Personal information / knowledge / document management software Ultra Recall

May 26, 2008

Ultra Recall helps you easily capture, organize, and recall all of your electronic documents and information across all the applications that you use.

It is paid software and you can free try it. I have downloaded it and shall try it.

Key Features

1. Web Page and Document Capture
Easily capture website data from the internet or content from the local file system, including web pages, Microsoft Office documents, email messages, contacts, notes, appointments, newsgroup posts, images, text, and more. In addition to storing the original document location, the page’s icon and the full content of the document can be permanently stored and keyworded so that no information will be lost even if the document disappears from the internet or is deleted.

2. Keep Everything in One Place
Any web page, document, message, image, note, or text can be added to Ultra Recall and then easily organized, edited, annotated, and recalled when needed.

3. Easy Navigation
A host of capabilities are provided to quickly navigate your data: a complete forward/back history of recently viewed items, favorites for defining and accessing frequently used items, auto-completion and history for input fields, searching on popular or recently used items, and more.

4. Flexible Linking
Rather than being limited to a single hierarchy of information, link items in multiple locations, create internal links between items, and link to other web pages and files, allowing information to be organized however you desire.

5. Tagging, Flags, and Reminders
Items can be categorized with tags, visually highlighted with flags, and regular reminders displayed so that nothing gets lost or forgotten

6. Undo/Redo
As personal information and documents are added and modified in Ultra Recall, unlimited undo and redo is available for all changes that are made.

7. Automatic Management of Metadata
Attributes about each piece of information, such as its icon, creation date, last access date, access count, source URL, summary properties, etc., are automatically managed by Ultra Recall.

8. Advanced Search Capabilities
Extensive search capabilities are provided, including Quick search as well as Advanced search, with AND, OR, grouping, and much more.

9. Outlook/PDA Sync
Two-way synchronization between Ultra Recall and Outlook/PDA is available, which allows creating or editing tasks, contacts, and appointments in either application, then synchronizing changes in either direction.

10. Encryption
Secure everything stored in an Ultra Recall Info Database with a single password.

Powerset – more nice feature

May 13, 2008

Today we can  access Powerset.

Yesterday I wrote about some nice Powerset features.

Today I should like to pay attention to one more feature.

When you select one of search results on the right you see a box Article outline

Below is the SWITCH “Show outline – Show Factz

and at the botoom of the box you see other box with text of your query and buttonGo

It is interesting to  analyze content when you select and click either one of the items in  the Outline

or one item in Factz .

Powerset – natural language search – coming soon

May 12, 2008

During a few months I have participated in testing on a new natural language search engine Powerset.\

It is coming soon – today or tomorrow. I shall not be able to have internet access tomorrow therefore I write preliminary comments.

The engine has a number of very interesting features:

1. You enter a query in natural language. It means that you do not need to think about keywords and can get more relevant search results. It means more deep search as well.

2. When you get search results you easy see not full document or webpage but highligted sentences that are relevant to your query.

3. You see semantic environment of your search results. It means that you see a content of the document and you see both related terms and actions you can do for more relevant search.

4. You can select and click the new term or action and then you will see the relevant part of the document or webpage in the content at the right of the document.

5. Powerset team used very nice friendly and interesting tool for collecting feedback.

Best wishes for Powerset team.
