iData 3 has been replaced by iData Pro 4. If you are running OS 10.5 or
10.6, then you will want iData 3, but if you are running OS 10.7 or
later, you should probably get iData Pro 4.
iData 3 is a flexible, easy to use, database program
that can handle any number of datafiles. You design each datafile with
any number of optional fields, and a freeform text area.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, and Ukrainian.
Fields can be added to a datafile to provide more
structure, and more options for sorting and selecting records.
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 -- to take with you on the road. Datafiles for iData Mobile
can be created and edited in iData 3 on the Mac, then uploaded to,
and sychronized with, the mobile device. This makes data entry easier,
using the larger Mac keyboard and iData 3's extensive import and data
Embedded links to web pages, other records in that
datafile, email addresses, and links for opening specific files on your
hard drive or local network can be added to either a field, or 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
for printing a single envelope or label from the current record.
