Comment by dyslucksia
about Ultra Recall Jun 2011

Although the two-pane interface suggests that its database can only be traversed as a single-parent tree (similar to Windows Explorer), its Logical Linking feature allows multiple parents for any child, a great organizational feature.

Not many PIMs implement multiple parents well, but Ultra Recall stands out from the crowd. Compared with similar applications such as PersonalBrain, speed replaces eye candy and the interface is solid.

Ultra Recall also has a powerful Attributes feature and Advanced Search engine. It comes with an excellent manual.
