    "Ok but get previous version."

    September 5, 2012  |   By benbird7

    Version: Xobni 1.9.2

    Pros

    Easy access to outlook, quick sorting out of emails and finding attachments.

    Cons

    Can be slightly buggy if you don't get the install right. Can also take a whole to install.

    Summary

    Love this program works great, but don't bother with the pay version, just get the version 1.7.3.6685. It's free and won't update link here change the 1's to t's

    "Fast, unobtrusive and very useful"

    August 14, 2010  |   By Bytemanj

    Version: Xobni 1.9.2

    Pros

    The full version is well worth purchasing as it finds addresses that Outlook does not and links to any message that I am looking for whether by addressee o, subject, or content. It does everything it says it will

    Cons

    Uses resources but I don't know how it could do what it does without them.

    Summary

    No problems - just don't try to introduce unnecessary bells and whistles in order to sell future upgrades. keep it simple.

    "12 hrs & still indexing 1 email folder w/103 items."

    July 21, 2010  |   By cnetrevuer

    Version: Xobni 1.9.2

    Pros

    Software never fully loaded; spent too much timing trying to repair, debug, reinstall, etc. Really like the marketing materials!

    Cons

    Slow, never launched. Will probably be a great product when they debug it.

    Summary

    The product should at least install fully before I have to repair it. Can't imagine an enterprise version - couldnt get this to work on my personal computer which has virtually nothing on it (in outlook) compared to my work computer. Concept is really great though.

    BTW: In the FAQ section, looked for "Can I remove my data from the Xobni One servers?" and found this answer "Yes, there are two ways to remove your data from the Xobni One servers.

    From Xobni for BlackBerry: Go to the Xobni application options and then click the menu button. You'll see an option to remove your Xobni account. If choose this option you'll see a dialog that allows you to remove your data from the Xobni One servers as part of the account removal from the BlackBerry. Keep in mind this will remove your Xobni contacts from the BlackBerry and from Xobni One.

    From Outlook with Xobni: Go to the Xobni menu and choose options. Go to the Indexing tab and you'll see a button to delete your data from the Xobni One servers."

    If I were a Blackberry owner I'd be highly upset to find out that a vendor that performed poorly also forced me to lose my contacts in order to remove MY data from their servers and the option listed for Outlook didnt exist at all - there was no such option or button on the page. That's an integrity issue to me; not sure I'd want to deal with these guys in the future. Good luck.

    "Get 1.7.3 (build 7053) instead"

    July 14, 2010  |   By W Macaulay

    Version: Xobni 1.9.2

    Pros

    Newer versions of Xobni don't really add much in the way of functionality, but they do what Xobni has done for years: index your Outlook mail and do so incredibly well.

    The newer releases also seem to suffer from more sluggish performance.

    Cons

    As mentioned, the new versions of Xobni reduce Xobni's functionality and are more bloated than the 1.7 version. Download Xobni 1.7.3, install and then disable the Xobni service to prevent Xobni from updating to a newer version.

    Summary

    Xobni *was* great software, and if you can get your hands on 1.7.3, it still will be. Lightning fast searches for contacts, attachments, and text within emails makes Xobni a really great tool.

    The Pro versions of Xobni after 1.7.3 do offer more powerful searching capabilities, and if you need to search for words in emails from a particular contact, only the Pro version can do this. However, Xobni 1.7.3 will search for the same words, but just across all email in Outlook. It's not a really big limitation in practice.

    So to sum up: Xobni 1.7.3 good, everything else afterwards, not so good.
