Editors' Review

+

Though this program contains basic information about certain medicinal plants, you'll find some limitations hamper its usefulness. Herbs' colorful interface is decked out with 12 large buttons and each one launches a new window, which can quickly clutter up your Taskbar and limits ease of navigation between areas. Herbs' database has more than 400 plants, but the trial version limits the number that can be viewed. For each plant, botanical and alternative names are listed. In most cases, the program identifies the part of the plant used and dosage, and offers a brief description. However, it doesn't identify what form (dried, fresh, or powdered) should be used for its recommended dosage. You won't be able to view pictures, create your own database, or look up plants by use with the trial version; these features are locked. Slightly awkward to use, this program provides only limited information about the medical applications of certain herbs and plants.

"Looks great!"

Quick & easy install - I didn't have any of the problems mentioned in the other reviews.

fairly slow install, user interface is functionally and visually bad. You can only search by name unless you pay for it then you can search by ailment and uses.

"WOULD NOT INSTALL"

January 20, 2004

 |  Version: Herbs 3.2

Summary

This would NOT install in my machine... I'm running Windows 2000 Professional and after 4 attempts at installing it from the .exe file provided here on CNet.com, nada nada nada... and so, I dumped everything having to do with this software asap. It always worries me when a peice of software simply doesn't install easily or as you would think it should. If there's one thing I truly can't stand, it's unscrupulous programmers who are more worried about getting their software out there rather than getting software out there that ACTUALLY WORKS. Best of luck to anyone else who attempts this one.
