about Piggydb Jun 2011

The installation has now been simplified to resonate with any windows application. Just unzip and run the exe...its a snap.

The most powerful feature of this program that all others lack are:
- Create Tags hierarchy
- Link Fragments/Thoughts together in a hierarchy
- Create Filters (Search through combination of flags)

I highly recommend this software as an Idea Generator.

about Piggydb Jun 2011

Piggydb offers many Evernote features, including tags, search, and a similar interface. The only problem is that it's difficult to install and run.

For installation instructions, download and extract the Piggydb zip file, and check out readme.txt.

If Piggydb developers made it simple to install, this would be a killer app.
