IdeaMason to be featured on Bitsdujour
« on: April 25, 2007, 09:32:27 AM »
Haven't tried IdeaMason, but it looks interesting as a research tool and possibly as an expensive notetaker and will be available on BitsduJour on Monday April 30th.

I'll give the trial a blast and report back here before then...

I was looking at that this morning as well. I am interested in hearing what you think of it after your trial.

Can't warm to it. It's pretty snazzy looking (technical term in GUI circles  :P) and very fully featured BUT I'm already running Endnote X, NetSnippets, Evernote 2 Plus, TexNotes Pro... Do I need this? I think not... I'm embarrassed to admit that I haven't been able to work up enough enthusiasm to put it through its paces  :redface: Not that anything I've seen is negative, just can't see the point of it for me and that's a motivation killer for me. Unless bitsdujour is going to be offering something well north of a 50% discount I can't see myself becoming interested, either, but I'll defer to others who may be more diligent about giving it a spin (nudge superboyac?).

I tried it and found it slow to the point of being annoying on my machine (see sig for details).

Bits du Jour has it today (April 30) for 40% off any of the licences that are available (e.g. academic licence is a hair over $40, down from $69). I'm not going to be jumping on this one, but thought I'd let everyone know!
