Organization & Navigation
There are three easy ways to find stored information with the DataViewer: 3-Tier Hierarchy, FingerpointВ® Alphabetical Index, and Keyword Search.
The DataViewer Hierarchy is based on creating categorized lists organized by Subject, Category and SubCategory. 'Associated' lists are located next to one another, so browsing lists becomes intuitive. Visual Guide
The FingerpointВ® Alphabetical Index is a roster of all lists in the Database. When a list is selected from the Index, you are returned to its place in the Hierarchy, which also allows you to see other 'associated' lists. Visual Guide
You can search Databases using the Search feature. Enter a keyword to search every record in your loaded Databases. Visual Guide
The DataViewer also allows you to store multiple Databases on your handheld, and switch between them without leaving the program. Visual Guide
"Font Setting Options" allows you to select the text you are most comfortable reading. Change Details Page text from our Town CompassВ® custom font to other system default fonts. You can also make text a larger size for easier reading, or smaller size for compacted viewing! DataViewer takes advantage of Microsoft'sВ® ClearTypeВ® font technology, which gives users a much more pleasant reading experience. Visual Guide
Not only do you see information in list form, but each individual record is displayed on an entire screen to minimize scrolling. Visual Guide
Each Database also comes with a colorful Cover Page. Visual Guide
"Footnote Lookup" inserts links to footnotes within text. Tap on a footnote and a pop-up window appears explaining the footnote. No need to search a glossary or bibliography list -- tapping on the footnote lets you keep your place in the text field window! Visual Guide
"Tap & Dial" allows 1-tap dialing for Pocket PC 2002/2003 Phones. All Databases with phone numbers, such as our City Directories and Business Books of Lists, are now mobile communications hubs. Visual Guide
"Infrared Beaming" enables information sharing through your handheld's IR (infrared) port to other handheld devices. Beam DataViewer and non-commercial Databases to your friends and acquaintances. Visual Guide
Email & URL Hyperlinks are now hot, so email- & Internet-enabled devices can take advantage of easier communication and information retrieval. Visual Guide
