I just upgraded Datebk5 on my Palm PDA to Datebk6. Looking back, I realise that I have been using this application continuously since 1998, and have upgraded at each opportunity, as the upgrades have always offered some new functionality that I could use. I can’t think of any other software that I use where this is true. The Datebk application represents all that is good about software - it does just what it needs to, in a low-profile kind of a way. It is (mostly) intuitive to use, and certainly easy to learn. Although more features have been added with each release, it does not seem bloated. And the upgrade just cost me 12 dollars - not bad for an application I use several times, every day!
