mobile default iconScrapBook (Palm Os) Publisher's description

Do you have many scraps of paper scattered around in various places recording interesting facts or important pieces of information?

Do you have many scraps of paper scattered around in various places recording interesting facts or important pieces of information?

Would you like to use your Palm Poweredв„ў device to keep track of all this data, but find that the built-in Memos application (or Memo Pad on older devices) doesn't let you organize your notes as you would like to or make it easy enough to find a particular note when you need it?

With a fixed limit of only 15 categories (and no sub-categories), and no way to search other than by using the Global Find facility, Memos isn't really equipped to provide convenient access to your notes when the total number of notes gets large.

"ScrapBook" is a note-taking application, featuring enhanced organizational and search capabilities that help you manage a large collection of notes. ScrapBook also supports encryption, which provides much better security than is offered by 'private' records in Memos.

You can organize your notes using nested folders (as many as you need, nested as deeply as you need), as well as by using standard Palm OS "categories". Also, you can assign a list of keywords to a note, and find notes by searching for one or more keywords. A combination of the nested folders and keyword search features is also available which provides a "virtual folder" capability, in which notes are associated with virtual folders dynamically (based on a correspondence between the words used in a virtual folder's path and the keywords assigned to the associated notes!)

ScrapBook can search its database for multiple words at once (or, optionally, even multiple strings at once), searching keywords, titles, and (optionally) full message texts. This includes the ability to search the message text of encrypted notes (in which case, ScrapBook will decrypt notes on the fly during the search, prompting for passwords as needed, but only when necessary). Search results are sorted so that the best matches are presented first.

ScrapBook can exchange notes, in both directions, with the built-in Memos or Memo Pad application. This also provides a path for exchanging ScrapBook notes and text files on the PC.

ScrapBook is shareware with a 30-day free trial period; it becomes fully functional when registered.

If you would like to try ScrapBook, but have questions about how to install it on your Palm PDA, feel free to read our installation guide, or download the installation guide as a Windows-compatible e-book (in case the PC used for HotSync'ing doesn't have internet access).

Download/Purchase ScrapBook

ScrapBook was designed as a general purpose tool, so that its capabilities can easily be applied in a variety of situations. Some examples of ways to use ScrapBook include:

* Secure management of passwords, PINs, and other secret data
* Keeping a private daily journal or diary
* A safe notebook for personal information
* General purpose knowledge base with high speed search
* Editing long lists (given support for large notes and forward & backward searching within a note)

Convenient ways to use ScrapBook

* Capture data on the spur of the moment - you can organize it later!

On the spur of the moment, all you need to write down is the note's text and a working title. The category assignment, folder assignment, keyword list, and proper title can all be specified later. When you have a chance to organize recent notes, just sort all notes by creation time, and the notes needing attention will be at the top of the list. Even if some notes are never 'organized', they can still be retrieved when needed by searching for particular words used in the note's title/keywords/text.

* Maintain separate collections of encrypted notes, and search a given collection efficiently.

ScrapBook's ability to restrict a search to selected folders (and, optionally, to the full hierarchy of subfolders below) is especially useful when searching through the content of encrypted notes - because decrypting notes on the fly during the search requires a lot of computation, and limiting the search to only the notes that need to be searched can speed up the search significantly, especially if large amounts of encrypted data are stored in other folders that you don't need to search at the moment.
