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.
