PpcSoft iKnow Benefits

"Use the simplicity of iKnow to handle the complexity of your life"

PpcSoft iKnow will help you manage information overload and remember all the small details so that you can concentrate on the important stuff !

The World Wide Web consists of inter-linked documents that gives you access to a wealth of global information (and sometimes information overload).

PpcSoft iKnow consists of inter-linked notes (where each note is like a simple web page or yellow note) that gives you access to your information.

Collect all kinds of information into PpcSoft iKnow, and create your own, personal knowledge web on your computer (does not store your data "in the cloud").

"In a nutshell, iKnow requires slightly more up-front effort and care than OneNote or Evernote when creating the notes, but once they are made, using the information is much easier."
