Scanalog: A Magazine Cateloging System Review and Giveaway


THE REVIEW:
I have posted about a few different items that I am using to try and organize my life. Well here is another one and it is just fantastic! It is called Scanalog and it a CD-ROM software system you
can use to store, catalog and retrieve your favorite articles from your favorite magazines and catalogs.

I was very excited to received this software. But of course, I try to install it and was not able to (seriously this is my life- everyone else can install it with no problem, and I can't, it figures). I emailed customer support and got an email back immediately and they were able to solve my problem (I had to download an extra file, not sure why, I think I was doing something wrong). But regardless, I was able to get it working ASAP and the customer service was AMAZING.

And then I was able to use the software. HOLY MOLY! This is the greatest thing ever. I am able to scan all of my magazines, articles, recipes, and put it in my computer in a neat organized fashion! No more paper clutter! EVER! There are eleven "Master Categories" to save items in Scanalog. They cover a range of women's interest, from Home Decoration to Gardening to My Spirit.



Sounds spectacular, right? Well, one lucky reader will win a copy of their own (retail $49.95)

I love the "Decorating" category: I have a gross ton of old decorating and do-it-yourself magazines I've been hoarding over the years because they contain an article or two I want to hang on to. I'd love to purge all of them but still have access to the article I wanted to keep.

What a clever, useful product!

I would use the Parenting section, you don't even want to know how many magazines I have hiding under my bed. I keep them just in case I need an article one day. This would so help me, I need to be organized

I would use the food and wine section to sort my recipes.

I like that I can scan all those health articles I'm keeping and categorize them to use later. Also, it would allow me to throw away all those pieces of paper after I scan them.

the craft section

ezmerelda said...

The food and wine section would be the one that I would use the most. I have hundreds of recipes that I have cut out of magazines that are of no use to me because they are a big pile.

the parenting is my choice

I love that they provide tags for you to mark your mags as you look at them. Makes it much easier to go back and scan the articles you need to at your convenience!

I like that there are sub-categories under the main ones. Would make it even easier to break down and find the exact type of recipe I'm searching for.

Anything that helps me be less of a packrat is great. Let's get that crap out of desk drawers and onto the hard drive.

WOW this is what I've been looking for my whole life!! I have way too many file folders of articles and paper items that are taking up valuable real estate! I work on a dinosaur of an operating system, so I'm glad Scanalog runs on Windows 2000. Thanks for the entry!

The ability to assign keywords to each image, at any time, and then later to be able to sort through ALL your stored images by keywords -- THAT is ~powerful~ access.

Mollie G. said...

The ability to directly import images from our digital camera (i.e., bypass the scanner, just go straight to categorizing the image itself) allows for a whole new approach to creative freedom and capturing reality -- I can see photographers benefiting dramatically!

Jinxy and Me said...

They have great categories - especially food and win!

purango said...

I like the Eleven Categories. I have articles for almost all of the categories that I want to save for future reference. garrettsambo@aol.com

Kate said...

I love how you can organize it inot categories and then subcategories to keep it super organized!

Michael said...

I think the Home Maintenance category would be very useful for DIY projects. A 'repairman' wanted to replace the condenser in our refrigerator which would cost almost the equivalent of a new unit. Long story short, after a simple cleaning the refrigerator is working just fine - now over 5 years later!

ms-texas said...

If I understand this product correctly from what I read - it seems to have a variety of categories that one could scan their "stuff" into - seems like there is a category appropriate for everyone

One of the things I like is that it takes such a small amount of memory. It seems like almost every program I load eats up memory like crazy. This uses so little it won't bog down my computer speed.

This is a genius idea because I don't have the room to save an entire magazine for an article or two or even recipes or an idea. The food and recipe idea interests me the most.
