Editors' review

Modern research inevitably turns up a mishmash of mixed media, ranging from Web pages to audio files to text notes. MyInfo provides a way to arrange different kinds of research data, creating hierarchically organized documents that store and connect these snippets of multimedia. The program allows a user to cut and paste elements from Web pages or other sources into a MyInfo document, or import entire document folders from the hard drive. The user can format and highlight text in order to emphasize important information, as well as insert images, hyperlinks, or tables. The program also supports hyperlinking within documents. Research documents can be saved in RTF format, as a Web site, or in the TreePad format. At $49.95 MyInfo isn't cheap, but it's an impressive tool for students and researchers who want to take the next step beyond file cards.

    "Outstanding. My #1 research tool"

    March 04, 2013   |   By coolrat33

    Version: MyInfo Standard 6.14 build 1521

    Pros

    The program is outstandingly reliable and solidly designed. I previously used other PIM note-taking tools that often crashed and led to data loss. But MyInfo has been utterly reliable and solid and after 3 years, it has become the one tool that I use every day without exception. My database is over 3gb but the program runs very quickly, and the "search" function is extremely fast and convenient.

    Cons

    The program should offer a way to open PDFs in the user's external PDF editor.
    If the program offered a way to code/tag blocks of text in a document, (similar to the way a qualitative data analysis program is capable of), it would further extend the usefulness of MyInfo.
    The web-clipping tool should be improved to allow for more accurate capture of web-page material, and to allow the user to edit (remove text, highlight text, add notes) to material that has been "clipped" and added to the MyInfo database.

    Summary

    MyInfo is the one tool that is constantly running on my computer every day. The program offers a very convenient way to store vast array of research notes, articles, web-clippings in branched tree and sub-tree categories. Data can be found easily through the tree-categories, through full-text search, and through the use of assigning tags or keyword to documents in the database

    There are several major PIM note-taking tools available. MyInfo is one of the very best in terms of its features and reliability. I am stunned that more researchers and students are not using this useful tool to organize university notes, class material, PDFs, essays, and web-data.
