I've long since admired a program called the gDoc Digital Binder. It's a personal organizer, rather like the filofax paper-based system of old (apologies to anyone who still carries one). Unlike Microsoft's OneNote, Digital Binder actually resembles a ring binder on screen, with pages that you can turn. You can include absolutely any type of information in a binder, including Word documents and PDF files.
My single main criticism of gDoc until now has been its unusual pricing policy. When you download and install the program, you can create one binder with up to 32 tabs. To create more binders, you have to purchase upgrades, and each pack of 10 binders costs almost $40. Imagine what would happen if Microsoft charged for Word by the number of documents you created!
Thankfully, the company has finally seen sense. On November 1st, the new release of the product will still cost $40 but you'll be able to create unlimited binders. At which point, it seems likely that they'll withdraw the free version. So you have until the end of this month to get it.
Remember, the free version lets you create a single binder with up to 32 tabs, which is plenty of space to store and organise loads of your documents, files and notes. The download is a rather large 167 MB and you'll find it at http://www.gdocinspired.com/products/digital-binder
