Gammadyne Corp came up with the Scratchboard application for Windows to help you and all the users out there who need an easy way to store all their information. You can add any data you want and manage it in a tree-like structure. The application can even read whatever you type out loud to you.
Downloading a 5.8MB executable is the first step you must take, should you decide to give Scratchboard a try. Run it and a setup wizard will help you install the application on Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, and 7 (these are the Windows editions Scratchboard supports at the time of writing this).
Scratchboard’s interface is divided into two panes: a tree structure to the left with all the main, child, and sibling branches you create, and a pane to the right that displays info on a selected branch. At the top there are several buttons related to various functions Scratchboard can perform, such as create a new branch, cut, open hyperlink, and so on.
To help you get started, Scratchboard comes with an example project you can load. Do so and you will see that the several branches will be displayed in the pane to the left; select any of these branches and the information provided by the developer will be displayed in the pane to the right. Right click the pane to the right to be presented with a massive context menu that, among other things, includes a spell checker and an option to speak text out loud.
Security oriented users will appreciate that projects can be encrypted and password protected. Users who are constantly on the go will appreciate that Scratchboard can be installed on a portable USB Flash drive. And users who are never satisfied with the default look will appreciate that Scratchboard supports skins.
Scratchboard is only free to try. The Export Tree and Encrypt Project features are disabled in the trial version that you can use for free for an evaluation period of 30 days.
Scratchboard provides a handy means of storing all your data and a variety of tools to make sure you do it properly.
You can easily install the application on a Windows PC. The application comes with an example project that you can play with. Store all your data in a tree structure, with main, child, and sibling branches. Add bookmarks, check the spelling, speak text, launch a calculator, and more with the Scratchboard application. Change the application’s looks by picking one of several skins.
Some features are disabled in the trial edition.
