Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Get those neurons humming with Synapse, an information manager that keeps your data organized in a hierarchical tree of books and pages. Pages may contain formatted text, pictures, graphs, lines, drawings, active hyperlinks, or embedded objects. It's a convenient way to arrange the results of scientific experiments, research findings, articles, or scraps of information of any kind. We would have liked a more powerful search tool, though. Synapse's doesn't understand Boolean operators, and it only searches for complete phrases. Also, for some reason, the application refused to install on one of our Windows 2000 test systems and generated an error during installation under Windows XP. Afterward, it worked fine under XP. Despite those odd glitches and its slight lack of power, Synapse is intuitive and easy to use. Just test it out thoroughly before entrusting it with your precious data.

Developer's Description

Synapse provides fast and easy management of large amounts of information. Quickly store all your projects and research in one file you can send to colleagues or customers. Fast organization and retrieval lets you drag and drop items anywhere with a customizable tree control. Forgot where you put something? Just use the search or index bars to quickly find it again. With easy customization, you can use as many high-color icons as you like. Synapse comes with 120 icons, and two drop-down buttons make it easy to quickly enter parent and child items. The built-in rich-text editor provides many font types and sizes, along with underline, bold, and italic type. Choose any font color you wish. A built-in ruler helps with tabbing, indentation, bullets, and left/right/center justification. You can embed files as well as pictures and objects from OLE-enabled programs such as Microsoft Excel. Synapse automatically senses Web page hyperlinks.
