Your favourite software application - bar none

What is it?

Disregard operating systems - it's programs I'm interested in, and only one. No office suites, and no second favourites or games - just one, single program (which can be part of a suite, if you like).

Plus the reason for your choice in fifty words or less.

I'm counting on you.

JetAudio, it's free and it plays any Audio/Video file that's thrown at it.

It will handle all sorts of data including numbers, text, dates and more. Use for mind-boggling calculations, creating databases used with LOOKUP functions, creating summarised data in Pivot Tables, and examining ‘what ifs’ using Solver. And if that’s not enough there’s Visual Basic for Applications to create custom solutions.

Flip Album Professional, a cracking way to store and view your pics.

as it allows me to keep an accurate record, of family holidays, special occasions etc.
Or if I wish to change some or all of the photographs, an "inaccurate" record of the same occasions.

because I can create and edit all kinds of documents or tables and insert pictures or graphics in a host of different fonts, styles and colours and file and save them for future use or despatching in e-mails. Magic.

MS Money - need it to control/move finances especially when abroad (to know when to trudge to the local internet café to get on-line).

POI edit

Its automatic update of POI's to navigators is excellent.

Picked up something called 'StrokeIt' a while ago which allows to to use the right mouse click to perform actions. Find it very annoying not to be able to drag across the page when browsing the internet on another computer.

It's the small things that make a difference...!

Well, That's a Hard one to Answer?

But, The one that Springs to Mind at the Moment (because just lately I have found it Invaluably Usefull in sorting through My Image files!) is 'XYplorer'!

ThisQuote from their site just about says it All:

XYplorer is a multi-tabbed file manager featuring a powerful file search, versatile preview facilities, a highly customizable interface, and an array of unique ways to efficiently automate frequently recurring tasks. XYplorer is a tool rather than a toy, and targets power users and computer professionals who are looking for an Explorer replacement that deserves its name.
