No other programs compare to these four.
Oops! BG-Blitz is also a great program and Frank Berger is tireless
with support and continuing upgrades. I've made an amended post listing
the FOUR programs worth getting.
which others have mentioned. It available for Windows, MacOS and Linux
- you need to be able to run Java though
it comes in 3 versions: Free (as in no cost), Player (U$23) and
Professional (U$46) and if you get Player and then want Pro, you can
upgrade for U$23 - http://www.bgblitz.com/price.html
There are many attractive themes available for it -
http://www.bgblitz.com/themes.html - and lots of databases for both
Match (FIBs, GamesGrid) and Position (too many to list here) -
This program is inexpensive, ESPECIALLY compared to other programs
which can cost up to U$400, and it is also EXCELLENT. sometimes things
that are not pricey are not good, but this is not the case. You get way
more than you pay for.
I cannot say enough good things about the level of support provided by
Frank, he's simply amazing.
I picked up the free version and had quite a few questions, including
one feature that I just couldn't understand how to get working and he
was very patient. I'm upgrading to the Player version as soon as my
bank completes my PayPal funds transer (darn thing takes EIGHT days and
they're killing me with the waiting), and once I grow into that, I'll
upgrade to the Pro version.
