EssentialPIM Pro EssentialPIM Pro

Database corrupted on upgrade 2 stars
I was happy with this software and bought a lifetime license. However, on the upgrade to version 7 my database was corrupted for a second time (it happened before when I went from 5 to 6). Contacted support who eventually asked me to send them my database file. Since then they have not got back to me despite reminders over 2 weeks and I now worry if they did not intend to assist me, what are they doing with the private info (Contacts etc.) from my database? Nice software, and all good until the next major version upgrades, but unless you dont rely on the info in your database, I would avoid. Price: Free Trial ($39.95)

RightNote RightNote

Old style notes software 3 stars
If you want an old style Notes taking software, this is one of the best. Well laid out, clean and colorful interface, easy to use with numerous features. No ribbon, no multi-platform (unless you include Evernote sync in the Pro version), no drag and drop anywhere on the page, no OCR from images. So what it does more than anything else is make you realise how brilliant OneNote is by comparison and how far things have moved on since the days when programs like this were the software of choice for organizing your information. Price: Free Trial ($29.95)

AutoHotkey AutoHotkey

First class software... 5 stars
I have no programming experience so its a little daunting at first, but surprisingly easy to get into and use, particularly as assistance is readily available on the forum. Makes a great text expander, something which as far as I can tell AutoIt cannot do (on their forums they seemingly regard a text expansion feature as tantamount to key logging yes, totally weird I know!). And the text can be expanded by means of keyboard shortcuts or by a great choice of GUI such as ListBoxes, DropDown lists etc. Plus there is even a pop-up calendar which works in Excel and is much easier to set up than Excels own pop-up Calendar equivalent. As a non-programmer I was initially put off as it appeared each script (e.g. each text expansion shortcut) had to be in its own file, resulting in numerous scripts having to be run and thereby being unmanageable. However I later discovered a script can contain numerous different macro commands so that is actually not a problem. Also opens websites, launches programs and much, much more. Highly recommended!

Fortora Fresh Finance Fortora Fresh Finance

Nag screen to renew after 1 year 1 stars
I bought this a year ago and thought it was reasonable UNTIL: once the software is over 1 year old you get a nag screen to renew (i.e. re-purchase) as the "subscription" has expired. What subscription? I BOUGHT IT!!! The options on the nag screen are "Renew Now" or "Remind Me Later", so though they say you can still use the software, to do so you have the nag screen every time you open it. SHAMEFUL! Price: Free Trial ($44.99)

Clipboard Saver Clipboard Saver

Great clipboard text manipulation software 5 stars
This software is great for multiple find and replace of text in software that does not have that feature built in. Just set up your replacements, copy then immediately paste back and the amendments are instantly inserted. Beware though you cannot save your configuration without payment of a donation of a minimum set amount... It does what it does very well though. Price: Free Trial ($15.00)

FlyingBit Password Keeper FlyingBit Password Keeper

Great free password manager 5 stars
I nearly missed this because of the relatively low ranking on Snapfiles. But it now has import and password generation added. I love it because its so customizable and not limited to certain predefined fields. Great free software! Price: Free

Budget Budget

Great software - shame about the license 3 stars
Having read the excellent review on Snapfiles I downloaded and trialled this software. It works great and is a fresh and original take on personal finance software. In fact I was about to buy it, until I read about the registration procedures on their website. The registration code they give you expires after a period of time. So if like me you regularly change your IT kit, you have to hope they are still trading when yo want to reinstall, re-download the software and ask them for a new key. I understand they want to stop piracy, but I use a lot of shareware and this is way over the top! What a shame Price: Free Trial ($39.95)

The software developer responded to this review on Aug 14, 2009: Purchasing Budget via our reseller eSellerate provides you with a code that does not expire. The only time you get a code directly from us that does expire is if there is some problem with the code you get from eSellerate (very rare) or if, you are running the 64 Bit version of Vista. The codes we provide do expire after a period of time if they haven`t been entered into the software. Once entered they are good forever on that machine unless you rebuild your hard drive or get a new computer. You can purchase Budget and try the code you receive from eSellerate. If it works for you all is well. If not, and you don t want one of our codes we will refund the full purchase price under our 60 day unconditional money back guarantee. Ron

FastStone Image Viewer FastStone Image Viewer

No quicktime thumbnails 4 stars
Lovely interface, and generally excellent, but in the end it didn't do it for me as it doesn't preview QuickTime movie files from digital cameras. The equally free XnView does, so I use that instead. Price: Free

Junkanoo Junkanoo

Excellent software 5 stars
I really like this software - its free, has a lovely interface, and nice balloon notifications of new mail. Unlike Coffee Cup Spam Blocker it does not keep copies of all your previews in Documents and Settings/Application Data, but genuinely deletes your messages on line. I've tried several anti-spam freeware programs and like this the best. Price: Free
