Tree hierarchies are a great way to organize information, starting with broad concepts and adding increasing levels of detail. TreeDBNotes Free is an easy-to-use program that lets you use tree hierarchies to create databases of all kinds of information, whether you use it as a contacts manager, to organize notes for a book, to keep track of recipes, or even as a journal. Even if you've never used this kind of program before, TreeDBNotes Free is easy to learn and will have you creating trees in no time.
The program's interface is attractive and easy to navigate, with menus across the top and a pane down the left side to display the tree hierarchy. TreeDBNotes Free comes with a sample database that includes both examples and instructions; after clicking through it we felt like we had a pretty good handle on how the program works. We created our own database and quickly began adding folders and notes. We especially liked how easy it was to move items around within the hierarchy simply by dragging them to the desired location. TreeDBNotes Free has a ton of formatting options, letting users create tables, insert images, set hyperlinks, customize text, and much more. The program also has a search feature, making it easy to find the information you need in a large database. In addition to the sample database, the program also has a proper Help file--in database form, of course--that provides comprehensive documentation. Overall, we found TreeDBNotes Free to be quite versatile and useful, and we recommend it to anyone looking for a better way to organize large quantities of information.
TreeDB Notes Free installs politely but leaves a Start menu item behind upon removal.
