Bitsmith Software has released Personal Knowbase version 4.0, a major update to its information management software for the Windows desktop. Personal Knowbase is a freeform note management system that tags information with keywords to make it easier to organize the large amount of information that enters our lives every day.

The new release includes major enhancements of its feature for attaching files and web addresses to notes. It supports multiple attachments for each note and displays thumbnails for image file attachments alongside the associated note. Users can specify to locate attached files relative to any folder on a computer or network, allowing data files to be moved either without breaking any links or so that only a single path change restores all links.

By linking notes to disk files and Internet addresses, knowledge workers can use a single index of tagged keywords to organize all their information. They can link notes to related websites, email addresses, images, and other files. By accessing a note with its keywords, they also access the related files with a single mouse click. For example, a salesperson can attach the notes of a phone conversation to an online profile for the caller, a call transcript, and a scanned invoice.

With a new reminder facility, users can pop up an alert for any note at a specified date and time. Office professionals, professors, and business owners can use Personal Knowbase to remind them of approaching appointments, meetings, renewals, or deadlines.

Personal Knowbase stores data locally on the users' own computers or networks, where they have control of their own data. Access is more convenient on local computers, with no need to log in or to worry about data's privacy and safety. Unlike with cloud-based solutions, data is not subject to unavailability due to outages or data loss due to discontinued services.

Optionally, consultants and others who are often on the move can install on a portable device such as a USB drive for carrying notes with them between computers.

Personal Knowbase has been helping information professionals get organized since 1998. Personal Knowbase 4.0 costs $49.95 for a single-user license and runs on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, or 8.1. A fully functional 30-day trial is available. For more information, visit or contact Bitsmith Software, P.O. Box 84, Pinole, CA 94564-0084, USA.
