New askSam 7 Now Available
askSam Systems is now shipping version 7 of askSam, its free-form database software. askSam lets you organize, search, and analyze both structured and unstructured information. askSam can create searchable databases from different types of data, including email, word processing documents, webpages, PDF files, spreadsheets, and other databases.
askSam 7 offers a completely new way for askSam users to organize and navigate their information. Dynamic Folder View lets you place your information in folders and subfolders based on field content, so everything is organized, dynamically, as you enter it. Save Word documents, PDF files, and other documents directly into folders; you can even save webpages directly from Internet Explorer. askSam 7 also allows you to drag and drop attachments, such as images or other documents, directly into an askSam database.
askSam now connects with all major web search engines like Google, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Windows Live, and more. Highlight a word or phrase and right click to immediately perform a web search directly from askSam. With the askSam homepage you can now open and search multiple files from one screen. The homepage provides immediate access to create a new database, your most used askSam files, common features, and more.
Also included are faster searching, improved user interface, a tabbed file interface, automatic updates, and the ability to narrow your search results by searching only within the results of a search. askSam 7 includes many other enhancements that simplify and improve the product. A 30-day trial version of askSam 7 is available on the company’s website at www.asksam.com.
askSam Version 7 Standard is available for $149.95.
