Two software programs I am taking for a free ride

Following is information about the two new software I am demo-ing, both were free to try.  I love new software it's like an addiction...I want to try them out and play with them, then if I like them I buy, and when I find something better I throw them away.  *maniacal laugh*   

I am looking at AJS as a possible research diary program.  I have tried a couple of others but have not found one that lets me do what I have visualized in my head.  Maybe this one will work.

AJS for Windows

Keep a protected and secure journal offline with the ability to send it online or e-mail it as a blog. XJS's input engine delivers scan-to-journal, voice, video, word processing, and handwritten (Tablet/Pocket PCs Only) input portals. XJS delivers the solution you need to fulfill your personal diary/journal needs. It provides importing/exporting features needed now and the accessibility required for the future. Easily add news to your journal with the included XML feed reader with a click of a button to have it forever. XJS stands as one of the few providers of a multi-operating system offline journal solution. Developers can extend XJS, giving new methods of input, new journal processing features or new entry fields.

Recall Plus is a study program that has some cool features including mindmapping and animation.  Not sure if it will be useful to me at this point, but it looks cool.  I bought GoBinder last summer and used it, minimally, to help me design classes for the fall.  Recall Plus may not be enough of the right thing to make me change, though it too looks very cool.

Recall Plus

To get a real feel for where it is coming from - Read why RecallPlus HAD to be produced!

RecallPlus is a program written specifically to get students learning faster by automatically getting them to use optimal learning and study methods in their actual day to day study time.

The specific problem it fixes is that if you are someone who wants to apply the latest in learning theories to your day to day learning there was literally no way you could do it efficiently or easily before the advent of RecallPlus.

RecallPlus was initially written by a doctor studying for a specialty exam.  He decided to 'learn how to learn' and checkout some 'study skills' websites, and found that if he wished to learn optimally, he really needed something more...

There was simply no way he was going to be able to apply all the better learning techniques so that he could learn faster, without ongoing help!!  There was no software to help - concept map programs were not able to help with revision and not designed for whole sets of notes.  Revision optimizing programs (e.g. flashcard programs), did allow sets of notes BUT were visually boring and limited.

He did need a system of some sort otherwise he was not going to be able to apply the study skill improvements that were going to get him through that exam fast - so RecallPlus was written!
