iData Pro is a flexible, easy to use,
database program that can handle any number of
datafiles. You design each datafile with a
freeform text area and any number of optional
fields (or none at all).
Fields can be added to a datafile to provide
more structure, and more options for sorting and
The freeform text area can include notes,
images, sound files, and small videos. Text in
the freeform text area can have font and style
changes such as bold and italic (rich text).
Unicode fonts are supported, so a single
record can contain text in a variety of
languages, such as English, Japanese, Chinese,
Every datafile window has a Find Box that
is always available to make locating the
desired record easy and fast, even in a
datafile with thousands of records.
You can synchronize datafiles with another
Mac, or with the iPad or iPhone running iData Mobile Plus --
to take with you on the road. Datafiles for
iData Mobile Plus can be created and edited
in iData Pro on the Mac, then uploaded to,
and synchronized with, iData Mobile Plus on
the mobile device. This makes data entry
easier, using the larger Mac keyboard and
iData Pro's extensive import and data
Embedded links to web pages, links to other
records in that datafile, email addresses, and
links for opening specific files on your hard
drive or local network can be added either to
a field or to the freeform text area.
Templates are provided for printing single or
batch labels and envelopes. You can make your
own templates with your return address, logo,
or other images. Templates can even be created
for printing business cards and custom forms.
There is a quick print function for printing a
single envelope or label from the current
to encrypt and password-protect your data.
