June 1992 Edition

_________________________________________________________________


I've been using Windows in one incarnation or another for about two years. I imagine part of the reason I'm so pleased with its performance is due to the addition of numerous SHAREWARE and FREEWARE applications and utilities. Software developers have taken the advantages of the Windows environment to new heights - and SHAREWARE/FREEWARE utilities are now as good as (or better than) the commercial products available. In order to help out those new to Windows, I have decided to compile a monthly BEST-OF list of Windows 3.x applications. In addition to providing information about the BEST and NEWEST programs, this list is intended to THANK the authors of the mentioned software, for providing them at low or no cost, and for benefitting the state of Windows computing.

The software I review is measured on a price/performance ratio. Due to this, FREEWARE apps WILL RECEIVE HIGHER RATINGS THAN SHAREWARE UTILITIES OF EQUAL MERIT. For the most part, the people in Internet-Land are college students (like myself) and short of available funds. If a software developer uses his considerable talents to write a useful utility, then grants it to the public domain, I believe this DESERVES A HIGHER RATING. If you don't believe this is a fair policy, write me E-Mail and try to convince me otherwise.

The rating system is quite simple - FIVE STARS indicates an application which is so useful, fairly priced, or easy-to-use that it's just about perfect. In practical terms, this means that I believe this is one to DEFINITELY DOWNLOAD and REGISTER. The scale goes down from FIVE to ONE STAR(S), FIVE BEING THE BEST, THREE BEING AVERAGE, and ONE BEING LESS THAN SATISFACTORY in any given area. Any product RECEIVING A ZERO in an area is designated UNACCEPTABLE. The areas I intend to quantify are PRICE, PERFORMANCE, ERGONOMICS (AND EASE OF USE), AESTHETIC DESIGN, QUALITY OF DOCUMENTATION and OVERALL VALUE. FEATURES LACKING IN A PROGRAM WILL BE NOTED AS WELL. If you can think of another category which should be added, please E-Mail me.

Any software to be reviewed must be available at CICA - the Center for Innovative Computing Applications in Bloomington, Indiana (ftp.cica.indiana.edu or IP address 129.79.20.84). CICA is acknowledged to be the BEST WINDOWS 3.x SHAREWARE/FREEWARE ARCHIVE SITE, and thus, in the interest of providing one-stop downloading for those using this list, the reviewed software will be placed on CICA in the pub/pc/win3 directories.

If you cannot access CICA, the following remote sites mirror the CICA archives and are available

CATEGORY: ICON-BASED PROGRAM LAUNCHERS
_________________________________________________________________

Admittedly, for many purposes, the Program Manager included with Windows is quite satisfactory. However, the Program Manager utilizes too much screen space, and can be a resource drain in the 3.0 version. This category of utility is intended to provide an alternative program launching method - preferably using fewer resources and occupying less screen space.

Available as APPBAR.ZIP on CICA, this is a FREEWARE utility which is highly customizable, and extremely easy to use and maintain. AppBar consists of a configurable strip of icons down the right side of the screen (as default). The button-bar can be placed in any of the four screen corners. Up to 32 programs can be inserted and launched by AppBar, and AppBar includes STAY-ON-TOP, QUICK-EXIT, and SINGLE-CLICK features. AppBar is the only reviewed product capable of being formed into columns. AppBar is the only product which allows users to close running applications from the launcher as well. Programs can be configured with a start-up directory, and can start in NORMAL, MINIMIZED, OR MAXIMIZED mode. A very handy APPSETUP utility is included, and as a shell, AppBar will execute the RUN and LOAD statements in WIN.INI. AppBar includes MANY icons ready for use (some of these are the new 3.1 icons). Lacking only a drag/drop function for data files (which Route1 and WinDock include) and the ability to run programs in the STARTUP group of 3.1, AppBar is a superb product. The amount of total file space required (.EXE only - disregarding *.ICO, the .INI file and the documentation) is 92,160 bytes.

EDITOR'S NOTE: I have been privileged to be involved in a beta-test of the next version of AppBar. The new version under development includes full drag/drop support for Windows 3.1, and allows the use of icons in .ICO, .EXE and .DLL files. The new version of AppBar will automatically create button-look icons, and will remain FREEWARE.

Launcher is unique among the graphic-based program launchers - it uses bitmapped (.BMP) graphics rather than icon (.ICO) files. This allows for larger buttons, and is better suited to
high-resolution displays. The drawbacks to this method are the refresh speed of the button-bar, and the amount of resources required. In addition, a 1024x768 display will only provide space for 16 applications (using the default .BMP size). Launcher is an effective product however. It launches programs quickly, and allows the user to customize the size of the bitmaps (the default size is 48x48 pixels - standard icon files are 32x32 pixels). Launcher includes many pre-drawn .BMPs, but creating your own is slightly more difficult than creating new .ICO files. If you have need for a larger-than-average button-bar however, Launcher is the only choice. The amount of disk space required by Launcher (excluding *.BMP, the .INI file, and the documentation) is 31,232 bytes.

NeXT Application Bar patterns itself after a feature of NeXT computer system's NeXT-Step operating system. The NeXT Bar is extremely attractive, and effective for launching programs as well. The NeXT bar uses the standard .ICO files, as well as .EXE and .DLL files. The NeXT Bar includes a built-in digital clock, a screen-blanker, an implementation of Raise (see MISCELLANY CATEGORY) and its own version of X-Eyes (an icon which follows the cursor). As a shell, the NeXT Bar executes the RUN and LOAD lines of the WIN.INI file. The NeXT Bar provides for as many as 50 programs on the button-bar, but screen space limits this on an average display. The NeXT Bar is well-designed and functional, but it remains up to the individual to determine whether the clock and eyes are worth the $15 registration. AppBar or Launcher provide the same level of program-launching capabilities at no cost. This version of NeXT Bar is troubled by some annonying bugs - the program crashes fairly often when editing and restarting the .INI file. The amount of disk space required (excluding the .INI file and the documentation) is 157,185 bytes.

Route1 incorporates some very good ideas that no other program launcher in this category includes. The button-bar can be minimized to a small button in the upper-right corner of the screen, and Route1 includes a Tools menu. Route1 facilitates branching horizontal button-bars, and includes a switchable analog/digital clock. Route1 can be set for SINGLE or DOUBLE CLICK operation, and allows drag/drop movement of the buttons on the bar. Route1 uses the standard .ICO files, and includes many pre-drawn icons. Route1 functions well as the Windows shell, but is slightly slower than the other programs in this category. If you need specific features missing from AppBar or Launcher, give Route1 a look. Registration is $14. The amount of disk space required (excluding *.ICO, the .INI file and the documentation) is 78,714 bytes.

WinDock was the first of the ICON-BASED PROGRAM LAUNCHERS to provide full drag/drop capabilities. When combined with Windows 3.1, WinDock is an EXTREMELY easy to maintain program. To change the icons on the button-bar, just grab a file from File Manager and pull it onto the button-bar. With WinDock you never have to manually edit the .INI file. Changing program settings is also easy - just right-click on the proper icon. WinDock automatically takes the icon in the program's .EXE file and creates a button-look icon, making it effortless to customize the appearance of the button-bar. You can drag data files to WinDock as well - for example, you can drag a .TXT file to Notepad on the button-bar and Notepad will start up with the data file loaded. WinDock provides complete functionality as a shell - it runs all entries in the RUN and LOAD lines of the WIN.INI file, as well as those in the STARTUP GROUP of Windows 3.1 WinDock includes a great feature called MAXVIEW - which makes the button-bar visible at all times (even when other applications are maximized). In addition, WinDock has a STAY-ON-TOP feature, and the ability to run programs not on the button-bar (via a Run dialog box). WinDock is the most functional of the ICON-BASED PROGRAM LAUNCHERS, and the most desirable of the SHAREWARE programs in this group. Once again, it remains up to the individual user to determine whether they need the extra functions in WinDock at extra expense over AppBar. WinDock costs $15 to register. The amount of disk space required (excluding the .INI file and the documentation; .EXE and .DLL only) is 45,968 bytes.

RANKINGS:

This was the closest category to judge in terms of performance. Each and every product in the ICON-BASED PROGRAM LAUNCHER group does what it is meant to do - launch programs quickly while using less screen space and fewer resources than Program Manager. By this measurement, EVERY product in this category is superb. All of these applications are well-designed, require very little disk space, and most are very attractive as well. The one area in which these programs differ in is price. The three SHAREWARE programs are very similar in price - $14 to $15, and generally provided several small but useful features which the two FREEWARE programs do not provide. However, the two FREEWARE programs score highly in terms of price/performance ratio. Ranked by OVERALL VALUE (overall value measures features vs. price), these are the results:

1. APPBAR v3.14159
2. WINDOCK v1.5
3. ROUTE1 v2.0
4. NEXT APPLICATION BAR v3.1
5. LAUNCHER v1.1

CATEGORY: TEXT-BASED PROGRAM LAUNCHERS
_________________________________________________________________

This category provides the same advantages as the ICON-BASED PROGRAM LAUNCHERS. Usually sparse on system resource requirements, these utilities generally occupy even less screen space than their ICON-BASED counterparts. Usually invoked by right-clicking on the desktop, TEXT-BASED PROGRAM LAUNCHERS are POP-UP MENUS. These generally can launch more applications due to fewer constraints by screen space, and are usually faster to refresh than ICON-BASED launchers. Below is an example of what a pop-up text menu looks like:

AddMenu lets a user customize the SYSTEM MENU (the menu activated by clicking the leftmost, topmost button on a window frame). This makes it possible to run another application without having to pull up ANY program launcher. No longer do you have to dredge up Program Manager, find the right Program Group, and double-click the right icon! For example, if you use File Manager frequently, add it to the system menu. If you're running an application maximized you no longer need to minimize that application to find your program launcher. Place AddMenu in the LOAD line of your WIN.INI file, and it will provide you with customized system menus at startup. Additionally, AddMenu can be configured to run without any icon on the desktop - saving precious screen space. AddMenu requires only a very small amount of system resources, and no screen space until activated. The total disk space required by AddMenu (.EXE and .DLL only - excluding .INI and documentation) is 22,810 bytes. AddMenu is FREEWARE.

BackMenu was the first of the pop-up menu program launchers to make the Windows scene,
and is still one of the best in terms of features. BackMenu can launch more applications than
any other application in this class because it isn't limited by vertical screen size. BackMenu
provides for branching menus, which not only make it possible to specify more programs, but also to classify them in groups. BackMenu is extremely configurable, and provides for specific start-up directories. BackMenu is the only pop-up menu I'm aware of which uses a hot-key, making keyboard use possible as well. BackMenu allows applications to be started in NORMAL, MAXIMIZED, or MINIMIZED mode. As a shell, BackMenu performs superbly. BackMenu requires no screen space until activated, and only small amounts of resources (although slightly more than the other programs in this group). The only drawbacks to BackMenu are that it is slightly slow to start, and the registration fee is 25 pounds (the author lives in England). Although the fee registers BigDesk (a virtual-screen utility) as well, the price is prohibitive. The total disk-space required by BackMenu (excluding BigDesk, documentation and .INI; .EXE and .DLL only) is 85,088 bytes.

Desktop Helper is an extremely resource-conscious utility. In occupying no screen real-estate
until activated, Desktop Helper is also very useful for the "cluttered desktop" of today's GUI. Desktop Helper is great at launching applications - it is very fast and extremely easy to use. In addition, Desktop Helper takes almost no time at all to load. Up to 48 programs can be launched
by this pop-up menu, but screen space may limit that number. Desktop Helper provides a RUN feature to launch applications not implemented into the .INI file, and can cascade and tile windows, arrange icons, and act as the Windows Task Manager. Unfortunately, Desktop Helper does not prove sufficient as a shell - it cannot launch the applications in the RUN and LOAD lines of the WIN.INI file. In addition, when configured as the shell, Desktop Helper uselessly
occupies screen space by maintaining a Title Bar at the top of the screen. Programs cannot be configured with startup directories, and unlike BackMenu or Usher, Desktop Helper does not allow branching menus. The registration fee for Desktop Helper is $15. The disk space required by Desktop Helper (.EXE and .DLL only - excluding .INI and documentation) is 36,352 bytes.

Half-Shell takes a minimalist approach to launching applications. The author's stated intent
is to free up memory for applications and, above all, make Windows load faster. Half-Shell
admirably meets its designed goals. Half-Shell provides for up to 26 applications, and is very easy to use. Although it requires a small amount of screen space (as either an icon or a bar on top of the screen), the efficient use of resources more than makes up for this. One of the best features in Half-Shell is that it provides for the use of more than one shell - using the included
utility SwapShell. SwapShell changes between your existing shell and Half-Shell, quickly and easily. Half-Shell functions perfectly as the main shell, launching the RUN and LOAD lines of the WIN.INI file. Best of all, Half-Shell is FREEWARE. The disk space required by Half-Shell (excluding the .INI file and documentation, .EXEs only) is 37,270 bytes.

Usher provides all of the superb functionality of BackMenu for less than one-third the cost. Usher is a pop-up menu which requires only 9k of memory, yet allows for up to ten levels of hierarchical menus! Usher provides for start-up directories, and can start aplications in NORMAL, MAXIMIZED or MINIMIZED mode. The most amazing thing about Usher is that it is not ONE MENU - it can be as many as THREE. Depending upon the number of buttons your mouse has, Usher can have one, two, or three distinct menus. One menu can be activated by right-clicking on the desktop, the second by left-clicking, the third by middle clicking. With Usher you can launch every application you have - and only occupy a fraction of the possible number of combinations Usher provides for. Usher is the only pop-up menu to feature optional date, time, resource monitoring, and memory monitoring functions. Usher will execute the RUN and LOAD lines of WIN.INI when configured as the shell. Usher is highly configurable, and although slightly more complex to set-up than the other pop-up menus, it is superb. Registration is $15, and the total amount of disk space required by Usher (excluding documentation and the .INI file) is 25,088 bytes.

RANKINGS:

Each of the TEXT-BASED PROGRAM LAUNCHERS is effective at launching applications. All are useful, all are fairly quick and all are superb in their resource management. Three are pop-up menus (BackMenu, Desktop Helper, and Usher), one is an icon/title bar (Half-Shell) and one is a system menu (AddMenu). Personal preference and needs will dictate which style of launcher to use. In my rankings, however, I consider only OVERALL VALUE (price/performance [features] ratio). Thus, the results:

1. USHER v1.4c
2. ADDMENU v0.3.4 (TIE)
2. HALF-SHELL v1.1 (TIE)
3. BACKMENU v2.30
3. DESKTOP HELPER v1.0

CATEGORY: HYBRID PROGRAM LAUNCHERS
_________________________________________________________________

A HYBRID PROGRAM LAUNCHER is a cross between the ICON-BASED and TEXT-BASED
launchers. Generally, the products in this category incorporate both bitmapped buttons and text menus to start applications. In terms of screen real-estate and system resources they usually
require more than either of the other LAUNCHER categories, however, they also usually require fewer resources than Program Manager. Hybrid launchers have just begun to appear - these
few are the earliest attempts, and show strengths and weaknesses. Although these programs boot more slowly due to their requirements, these programs often allow a user to specify more programs than ICON or TEXT launchers do. So, which TYPE of launcher to use? That's purely a matter of personal preference.

If you are an AVID Star Trek fan, this program might be what you're looking for. Providing a list-box for launching programs, the FedCon Transporter is fairly useful. The program itself is slow to start up, and heavy on the resource requirements. If you're looking for a hybrid launcher because it's what you NEED to actually accomplish work, look to Ottomenu. The FedCon Transporter is an amusing program that shouldn't require the user to register it. Registration is $15. The Federation Control Program Transporter is available on CICA as FEDPRO.ZIP, and the total disk space required (in .EXE and .DLLs, excluding .INI and documentation) is 224,360 bytes.

If you have LOTS of programs, Ottomenu is the launcher for you! Ottomenu provides for 95 applications by dividing between 15 icon buttons (five are pre-set and static) and 80 radio buttons (4 pages of 20 each). I had never seen a launcher use radio buttons prior to seeing Ottomenu - I really like the concept. Radio buttons occupy less screen space than either icons or pop-up text menus. Ottomenu is EXTREMELY EASY to configure if you have Windows 3.1 - just drag the data file to the radio button or icon, and the .INI file is modified for you. Ottomenu is also great for those of you who like to customize your workspace - you can place a large bitmapped graphic on the face of Ottomenu. Ottomenu even provides memory monitoring features. Sounds good? It is. Even better is the fact that Ottomenu is FREE. The one drawback I can find to Ottomenu is the program starts up somewhat slowly. Named OM37.ZIP, Ottomenu is available from CICA in the pub/pc/win3/desktop directory. The total amount of disk space required by Ottomenu (excluding the .INI file and documentation, .EXE and .BMP only) is 82,942 bytes.

StatLine is not strictly a program launcher. It also incorporates a resource monitor, a clock, a date function, and miniature notepad. Although StatLine only provides for seven programs in the .INI file, it includes a QUICKRUN feature which allows other programs to be launched by typing the name or by selecting and clicking with the mouse. StatLine is the fastest program to load in this group. StatLine's clock has a CHIME, which can be set for either beeps or Windows 3.1's ASTERISK.WAV sound. StatLine can be set as the shell, and will execute the programs in the WIN.INI RUN and LOAD lines. Registration is $10, and the total disk space required (excluding .INI) is 98,688 bytes.

RANKINGS:

There are two very good programs in this group. Ottomenu is a great program launcher for anyone with many programs, and StatLine is a very useful system monitor/clock/calendar. Perhaps StatLine isn't really a HYBRID PROGRAM LAUNCHER (because it only launches seven applications) but it fits into this category because it does launch (some) applications, and crosses both text and icons. Although the Federation Control Program Transporter does launch applications, its utility is offset by the cost. The rankings, then, are:

1. OTTOMENU v3.7
2. STATLINE v3.0
3. FEDERATION CONTROL PROGRAM TRANSPORTER

CATEGORY: COMMAND-LINE INTERFACES

Although GUIs are superior in many ways to the old command-line of DOS lore, sometimes it's quicker to type COPY PKUNZIP.EXE C:\WINACC than it is to pull up File Manager, select PKUNZIP.EXE, and drag it into another directory. It's also very easy to launch applications from a command-line - often easier than to have to hunt up a program launcher from beneath a pile of windows. And unless you run in 386 Enhanced Mode and have lots of free memory, having an open DOS box onscreen at all times is impossible. COMMAND-LINE INTERFACES for Windows provide the benefits of a genuine DOS session (and sometimes many benefits DOS can't touch) while requiring only a fraction of the real memory resources.

4Win is an improvement over running a DOS session in Windows for two reasons:
first, it requires less memory than a dedicated DOS session, and second, because it allows the launching of Windows apps from a command-line. There are no surprises to 4Win - it is just a simple command-line. Although 4Win has no special features, it is an improvement over running a real DOS session. The total disk space required by 4Win (excluding the documentation and .INI file) is 54,018 bytes. Registration is $20.

U/Win Utilities allows a user to customize the window appearance to one of three designs: standard, small, and command-line only. The first two are severely hampered because they limit the size of the window where commands (like LS or DF) are output, requiring a user to scroll the window to read the output. The last is a small command-line at the bottom of the screen, which is very effective for launching both DOS and Windows apps, but pathetic for any other purpose. Typing LS pops-up a new window, which takes up nearly the entire screen. Typing LS again (without changing directories) builds another complete window - optimally, it would send the output to the original window. After five LS commands, the screen is completely covered with windows full of the same information. The other CLIs in this group send command output to one window - and that window can be sized to allow optimum viewing of output. Other than the three different window configurations U/Win offers, there are no special features. For program launching, U/Win is excellent, but for actual command-line use U/WIN leaves much to be desired. Total disk space required by U/Win (excluding the documentation and .INI file) is 224,544 bytes. Registration is $29.95.

WinCLI is similar to 4Win - it is an acceptable substitute to a DOS session, but embodies none of the higher capabilities possible in the CLI genre of applications. WinCLI will launch Windows and DOS apps, and provides DOS command substitutes for most standard DOS commands, but is otherwise unremarkable. WinCLI of course, requires fewer resources than an actual DOS session, but this feature is not worth the $35 registration price. WinCLI PRO, which provides higher-level functions, is $79.00 - technically no longer shareware. The Association of Shareware Professionals encourages non-crippled applications, but WinCLI provides no documentation for non-registered trial copies, which I consider crippling. The total amount of disk space required by WinCLI (excluding the nonexistent documentation) is 45,824 bytes.

Windows Shell is so powerful that WHEN I ACTUALLY EXIT TO DOS I FIND MYSELF ANXIOUS TO GET BACK INTO WINDOWS TO USE WINDOWS SHELL INSTEAD OF GENUINE DOS! Windows Shell is one of the all-too-rare programs that allows the user to customize the work environment to suit very specific needs. Windows Shell allows the launching of both DOS and Windows programs from a command-line, and makes it genuinely easy to do so. The reason for this is that Windows Shell allows ALIASES - user-defined strings which stand for other functions. For example, I have customized Windows Shell to recognize WAV to mean CD \WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MULTIMED\SOUND\WAV. By typing three quick keys I accomplish a DOS command that requires thirty-seven key-presses in genuine DOS (versions prior to DOS 5.0)! To launch Excel I only have to type xl. Windows Shell makes launching applications from a command-line not only practical, but very efficient and very fast. It is possible to customize ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES in Windows Shell as well. Environment variables are the settings which define how the system functions (like CONFIG.SYS). For example, it is possible to change the PATH environment variable in Windows Shell to every directory, making it very easy to launch applications as no directory changes will be required. Not only is Windows Shell superb at launching applications, but it also provides the fastest screen I/O I have seen under Windows. Under a genuine DOS session or any other Windows command-line, screen input/output CRAWLS. Screen writes from Windows Shell feel as fast as from DOS itself. Now typing DIR (or d in my setup) is actually favorable to changing directories in File Manager with a mouse - output is faster. Windows Shell allows custom fonts and colors, and has an optional window which provides eight customizable launch buttons and another which shows every file in the current directory. I have used other command-lines for Windows, and although I desperately needed one before I found Windows Shell, I found them much too expensive and far too weak. I highly recommend Windows Shell for anyone who needs a CLI inside Windows. The total amount of disk space required by Windows Shell (excluding all documentation and the .INI files) is 146,591 bytes.

RANKINGS:

With only one exception, the products in this category are lackluster. Far too expensive to justify their features, 4Win, U/Win, and WinCLI are not recommended. If you require CLI functions inside Windows, but cannot find Windows Shell, I frankly recommend you stick with a DOS session inside Windows rather than purchase any of the other products. Windows Shell receives high praise - and deservedly so.

CATEGORY: SYSTEM RESOURCE MONITORS
_________________________________________________________________

Windows works by allocating SYSTEM RESOURCES (consisting of MEMORY, GDI HEAP and USER HEAP) to active applications. Windows 3.0 had a tendency to run short of resources, and thus required constant monitoring. While 3.1 is much more capable in this regard, but it never hurts to have a monitor around to inform you if resources are reaching a critical stage.

EDITOR'S NOTE: I chose not to review any SHAREWARE programs in this area, since there are several excellent FREEWARE versions available. As these utilities are very necessary under 3.0, I don't believe it is fair to charge for their use.

As a graphical environment, Windows excels in the task of manipulating hi-resolution graphics.

WinGIF is a fast and easy-to-use graphics viewer, and is great for capturing screens and windows. WinGIF views .GIF, .BMP (monochrome to 24-bit), .PCX and .RLE formats, and will save to any of these formats as well. WinGIF can resize, dither (both 16 color and monochrome), flip and rotate images. WinGIF can also edit image palettes. WinGIF automatically resizes the window to fit the image (saving screen space), and can display images in a constant loop. For general purpose use, WinGIF is very effective. Registration is $15, and total disk space required (excluding documentation and .INI) is 90,144 bytes.

I imagine the first thing most users did with the Terminal program included with Windows is call up a BBS to download another terminal program! Seriously, the Windows Terminal program isn't bad for very simple uses, but today's best communications programs have better and faster file protocols, more terminal emulations, and more ergonomic operation. Communications under Windows is an idea whose time has surely come - background file transfers and cutting/pasting of quotes from the terminal screen are wonderful features. But which terminal program to use?

MicroLink supports ASCII, Xmodem, Ymodem, and Zmodem file transfer protocols, ANSI and VT100 terminal emulation, but the unregistered version is crippled, and does not provide the VT100 emulation or automatic scripting language until the software is registered. This policy makes it difficult to easily evaluate the software. MicroLink has an attractive interface, but the program is very slow to start-up, and lacks the more powerful functions of other terminal programs. For a $35 registration fee however, MicroLink is an acceptable Windows communications program. Total disk space required (excluding the documentation and .INI file)
is 477,405 bytes.

Unicom 3.0c is quite possibly the best shareware program I have ever seen. Taking full advantage of the Windows interface with a ToolBar, Button Bar, scroll bars, status bars, and function keys, Unicom is extremely configurable, easy-to-use, and a a text-book example of how to design an application for its specific purpose. Including many (if not all) of the most popular and powerful file-transfer protocols (Xmodem Checksum, CRC and 1k, Ymodem Batch ang G, Zmodem and Resume Zmodem, Kermit, Compuserve B, Quick B, and ASCII), a strong scripting language, several terminal emulations (DEC VT-102, DEC VT-52, ANSI-BBS, and TTY), and numerous other amenities, Unicom is as feature-rich as current commercial programs. Undoubtedly however, the strength of Unicom lies in its configurability - from the mode it starts in to the background/foreground colors, to the default protocols, to the appearance of the window components to the Z-Modem protocol defaults to.... I could go on and on. Yes, Unicom is immensely configurable, but because of the quality of the documentation (in the form of a .HLP file and release notes) setting it up to run is a snap. Once registered, a complete set of bound documentation is provided. Features lacking in Unicom 3.0c: VT200/220 emulation, perfect VT100 emulation, customizable ToolBar. (In addition, I would LOVE to see 3.1 .WAV support - imagine hearing Bart's Hi Man! on connection to another system!). Unicom would merit a rating of five stars if it were less expensive, included VT200 emulation, and had a cheaper upgrade path. Unicom costs $69, and requires 464,564 bytes of disk space (excluding .HLP and .INI).

WinQVT supports Xmodem, Ymodem, Zmodem, and Kermit file transfer protocols, and VT220, VT102, VT52 and TTY terminal emulation. The terminal emulations are superb, and the Kermit implementation is the fastest I have see. WinQVT has a scripting function as well. Unfortunately, WinQVT has a dated interface, and the trial version has only two font sizes - both of which are unusable at 1024x768 resolution on a 14" monitor. Registration provides several new fonts, but it is impossible to evaluate WinQVT prior to installing the new fonts. This crippling of software usability is frowned upon in shareware, as it does not allow a prospective customer the ability to review the software for defects prior to purchase. WinQVT is not very customizable in any area but key-mapping, which is very strong. Overall, WinQVT is a good product because it provides the only VT220 emulation in a shareware package, but it is hampered in its delivery. Total disk space required is 394,770 bytes, and registration costs $50.

RANKINGS:

There can be no doubt about which terminal program in this group is superior. Unicom 3.0c provides more features than many commercial applications a lower cost. The only thing Unicom lacks is VT220 emulation - it includes everything else that could be desired in a terminal program. WinQVT is great for those who NEED VT220 emulation, but lacks many of Unicom's features. MicroLink is primed more towards casual BBS users, but it suffices for that degree of use.

1. UNICOM 3.0c
2. WINQVT 4.78
3. MICROLINK 1.03

The very fact that you're reading this list right now indicates that you use an unZIPper. But does it utilize the Windows interface, or are you stuck with an outdated DOS command-line decompression program with confusing switches like e, x and v? Software developers have taken the ugliest command-line apps and turned them into clean, uncluttered, and simple GUI utilities.

I must confess: I LOVE this program. Possibly the most perfectly designed application yet, this is the easiest-to-use decompression utility I've seen for Windows 3.x. With two large window panes, one detailing the files in the compressed archive, and another the contents of selected files, it is a snap to select which files you want to view or decompress while leaving the others intact. You can customize where you want the files to be decompressed to by default, and what action occurs when you double-click on a file. Make no mistake, WizUnzip is the winner for its interface - there are faster unzippers out there, but I'm unwilling to use them. They are either too messy, or too hard to use. If Mr. Heath would write WizUnARJ, WizUnZOO, WizUnLZH and WizUnARC I would be a very happy Windows user! Also in WizUnzip's favor is the price - it's FREE. You can't beat that. The source code for WizUnzip is available at CICA as well - titled WZUN11SR.ZIP. The total disk space required by WizUnzip (excluding the documentation and .INI file) is 95,232 bytes.

Windows UnArchive can decompress the two most popular schemes of archiving - .ZIP and .ARJ. Windows UnArchive is highly configurable, allowing a user to set a default decompression directory, tryout directory, and work directory. Unfortunately, the purpose of a GUI version of an unarchiver is to make decompression easier. While Windows UnArchive eliminates the arcane switches, it is not as easy to use as WizUnzip: viewing a .TXT file inside an archive is a labor. Registration is $10. The total disk space required (.EXE and .DLL only; excluding the documentation and .INI file) is 363,920 bytes.

PRICE: FOUR STARS
PERFORMANCE: FOUR-AND-THREE-QUARTER STARS

RANKINGS:

Although Windows UnArchive provides .ARJ support, the ergonomic ease-of-use of WizUnzip is impossible to overlook. Imagine evaluating an archive without ever having to decompress it - this is what WizUnzip provides. Because it makes it so easy to view files within an archive, and to test and extract individual files, WizUnzip is highly recommended.

Let's face it. People LOVE icons. I can call up ANY local BBS and find about five-thousand icons in the Windows directory. People like to customize their desktops, and icons are one of the things we now have the most freedom over: with Windows 3.1 we can customize DOS icons, and some icon editors can change the icons in the .EXEcutable files and in .DLLs (dynamic link libraries) as well.

The very fact that IconMaster took first place tells you it's good - the fact that it beat out a FREEWARE application tells you just how VERY good it is. I tend to go with the FREEWARE apps because: 1. You can't beat the price. 2. I respect the authors of the FREE applications more for being willing to give their products away. and 3. They're usually very good regardless. But IconMaster is worth registering - it's quick, clean, and does EVERYTHING you expect an icon editor to do. IconMaster edits more different kinds of icon files and libraries than any other editor - from .ICO to .EXE to .DLL to the author's own proprietary formats (.IML, .IMZ, .ICA, .ICL, .IL) to Norton Desktop's .NIL format and standard .ZIPfile format. IconMaster can capture any screen image within 32x32 pixels and convert it into an icon. IconMaster provides full transparent and inverse support. With its drag and drop functions, IconMaster is easy to use, and very well designed. At $20, the price is fairly high, but this IS the best Icon Editor around. Total disk space required by IconMaster (excluding the documentation and .INI file) is 177,152 bytes.

IKE is an outdated icon editor by today's standards - it doesn't support .EXE or .DLL icons, and it cannot provide transparent and inverse color functions, but it is the best FREEWARE icon editor available. For basic use however, IKE is fine - it can draw filled and empty circles and squares, and perform color fills. If you need an icon editor for only general purpose use, you can't beat IKE's price. Total disk space required is 21,734 bytes.

IconMaster is the icon editor of choice for anyone who likes to modify icons in .EXE or .DLL files - or just draw new ones. IconMaster provides every function conceivable in an icon editor. IKE is an acceptable editor for anyone who only needs to perform very basic .ICO file modification.

SoundTool is a great soundfile editor - it can play, modify, and save .WAV, .SND (both Sounder and SoundTool formats), .SOU, .VOC, .SUN, .NXT, .ANSI, 8-bit raw, and .SNP (SoundTool Packed) files. SoundTool can flip, reverse, expand, amplify, fade in and out, animate and echo sound files, and can cut and paste sound data. SoundTool is powerful and easy to use, and is very attractively designed. Caution should be used when performing background file fransfers, as SoundTool will often interfere with the process.

Whoop It Up! is very similar to the commercial product Wired for Sound. Whoop It Up uses the Windows 3.1 Multimedia Extensions to attach .WAV and .MID sounds to system events, message box icons, and even to individual applications which don't have built-in Windows 3.1 sound-event suport. Whoop It Up works very well, is superbly designed and easy to use. The $29.95 registration price is high however.

WinJammer is the only SHAREWARE MIDI sequencer I have found for the Windows environment. WinJammer can import standard MIDI .MID files, as well as Adlib .ROLs, can program up to 64 tracks, runs in all Windows modes, offers powerful editing and piano roll style notation for editing, and includes extremely comprehensive online help. WinJammer sports a superb icon-based interface. The only feature lacking in WinJammer is utilization of the Windows 3.1 Multimedia Extensions - it currently only supports the Roland MPU-401MIDI interface. The price is actually reasonable when comparing the power and flexibility of WinJammer to commercial Windows MIDI sequencers. Total disk space required (excluding *.MID and the .HLP and .INI files) is 175,856 bytes.

Heap Auditor shows specific information about the GDI and USER HEAP used in calculating SYSTEM RESOURCES.

Windows software authors should use Audit to be certain their applications clean up after themselves.

CICADIR isn't a Windows program - it's DOS-based. So how does it make it into the Best of WINDOWS Shareware & Freeware List? It's VERY GOOD. CICADIR takes the INDEX and LS-LTR files from the /pub/pc/win3 directory of CICA, and compiles them into an easy-to-read, scrollable program. If you need to find a specific Win3 app, just check CICADIR. It'll show you the filename, directory, filesize, and a brief summary of what each program does. CICADIR runs fine in a DOS session inside Windows, so set up a .PIF file and it'll be easily accessible from within Windows.

Some applications record their size and postion on the desktop, and return to that postion when they're started. Other applications don't. I hate having a messy desktop, and I hate applications that take up more space than they need to. Sizer records the size and postion of any application, and when added to the command-line, will start that app with the recorded size and postion. Sizer can set applications to run MAXIMIZED or MINIMIZED, and, when placed in the StartUp group or the LOAD line of WIN.INI, can launch applications properly sized at boot-up. This is one utility I couldn't work without.

TIPS & TRICKS
_________________________________________________________________

ICON-BASED PROGRAM LAUNCHERS are great! I use one as my shell, and I love being able to launch an application with a single click without having to pull up the Program Manager and the right Program Group. ICON-BASED program launchers can be made to look very slick too. Below is AppBar v3.14159 (modified). Using the CAPTURE command in IconMaster, I can capture text in any application, and convert it into an icon! As you can see, I typed EXL in Notepad, CAPTURED it with IconMaster, and then edited it to look like a button. Changing the icon was easy using AppSetup, and it gives the button-bar a one-piece, finished look. Since there's not much room for text in a 32x32 pixel icon, I limited myself to three or four characters. EXL means Excel, WFW is Word for Windows, etc. The default icon in the APPBAR.EXE
file has been edited to look like the X-Windows logo.

WinDock has a great feature - MAXVIEW. MaxView forces any maximized application to limit itself to the screen space to the left or right of the button-bar. If I hadn't been using Sizer with AppBar for two months before seeing MaxView, I might have been overwhelmed at the usefulness of this feature. If you use an ICON-BASED PROGRAM LAUNCHER you probably like to keep it handy. Several programs in this category can be made to STAY-ON-TOP of the current maximized application, but they might get in the way of the MAXIMIZE/MINIMIZE buttons of the other app you're using. To work around this problem, use Sizer v1.10. Size the application to the left (or right or below or on top) of the PROGRAM LAUNCHER you use. Then save the coordinate information into Sizer. Once you modify the command-line of the app in the .INI file of your launcher to include the location of Sizer, the app will never cover your button-bar again! Used in conjunction with an ICON-BASED PROGRAM LAUNCHER, Sizer goes beyond the capabilities of WinDock's MaxView. Sizer can size and place ANY program, and works on programs at startup. Even better, Sizer is FREEWARE! See the MISCELLANY category for more on Sizer.

If YOU have any great tips on how to maximize the performance of a Windows shareware or freeware app, send me E-Mail, or you can use Windows Write to add your own 16-color bitmaps and formatted text and then send me the final version.

SHAREWARE/FREEWARE IDEAS
_________________________________________________________________

Have you ever thought up a great idea for a Windows application, but been unable to build it because you can't program? This is the ideal place to share your ideas - maybe the SHAREWARE & FREEWARE authors out there will see them. If you have any great ideas for Windows programs, please send me E-Mail at [email protected]

1. TOOLBAR FOR FILE MANAGER 3.1. Windows 3.1's File Manager is extensible - functions can be added to it. I know new menus can be added, but can a TOOLBAR with customizable icons? I know this would be extremely popular.

2. GRAPHICAL POP-UP MENUS. The pop-up text menus already available for Windows are great - but they lack the visual impact of comparable pop-up menus for OS/2 or UNIX GUIs. With today's faster video boards, this type of menu should gain popularity.

3. PROGRAM TO CUSTOMIZE WINDOW COMPONENTS. I recently saw a commercial program called MakeOver for Windows which could alter the Windows SYSTEM MENU, MINIMIZE, MAXIMIZE, TITLE BAR, and SCROLL ARROW components to make the windows look similar to a Macintosh's, to OS/2's, and to X's. The price, unfortunately, was $50. How about a shareware or freeware version?

4. .WAV and .MID files. With the availability of sound support in Windows 3.1, everyone's looking for sound and music files.

5. A WINDOW WHICH WOULD HOLD MINIMIZED APPLICATIONS. I hate having minimized icons take up desktop space - I'd rather just have one mimized icon which would contain all other minimized apps. Is this possible?

6. Windows .MOD player. I love Amiga .MODs - they sound as good as the original song. But I hate leaving Windows for DOS - Windows is GREAT! Would a simple Windows .MOD player be possible? - I know playing .MODs requires quite a lot of processing time which Windows might absorb.

7. .BMP/.GIF viewer/convertor in which the Title Bar and Menu Bar can me removed - leaving just a movable frame (like Clock 3.1). I sometimes like to leave an open .BMP in a corner of the screen, but the Title Bar and Menu Bar require too much space.

8. WIZUNZIP PRO. I recieved many comments about WizUnzip - and many votes. Everyone loves WizUnzip, and it would be great if someone could modify the available source code to decompress .ARJ, .LHA, and .ZOO files as well.

_________________________________________________________________

NOTE TO SHAREWARE DEVELOPERS
_________________________________________________________________

I compile this list of SHAREWARE/FREEWARE simply because I believe that there are so many programs available for Windows that beginners on the Internet might get lost. I intend to help them make the best choices they can as far as Windows applications go. Additionally, I want to bring attention to those Authors whose programs have changed the way we use Windows - in some cases, quite fundamentally. I respect you all for your programming talent (I couldn't program my way out of a paper bag) and I intend to glorify the best and brightest of your applications. IN NO WAY HAVE I BEEN, NOR WILL I BE INFLUENCED BY ANY AUTHOR OR CORPORATION TO REPORT THESE RESULTS.


Some guidelines for SHAREWARE/FREEWARE developers:

1. Don't directly modify the WIN.INI or SYSTEM.INI files. If you must make changes, please inform the user about the changes before they are made, allow a user to CANCEL the changes, and inform the user what must be done to remove the changes completely. AFTER ALL, UNLESS THEY REGISTER, THEY ARE JUST TESTING THE SOFTWARE. DON'T MAKE THE USER SUFFER.

2. Include in the documentation a list of all files which should be included in the ARCHIVE, which files MUST be retained for USE, and if any data files are built by the application, where they are placed and what they are named, again, to facilitate easy removal.

3. Upload a .TXT file to CICA with the same name as your .ZIP file. With the size of downloads today, many users don't want to spend an hour getting a file which they will have no use for. In the text file say what the program does, whether it is FREEWARE or SHAREWARE, and if SHAREWARE, how much it costs to register.

4. Use the great new features of Windows 3.1! Now that Windows has drag and drop capabilities, .WAV support, and common dialogs, shareware and freeware can be better than ever.


Please keep up the great programming - and keep the prices low.

PARTING COMMENTS (FAVORITE QUOTES)
_________________________________________________________________

[FIRST MESSAGE]
"I agree about overpriced shareware. I think the market will eventually weed these people out though. I guess people who write their own software always feel that it's worth more than it really is. I guess they get too attached to it."
[SECOND MESSAGE - FOLLOWING PUBLICATION OF BESTWIN LIST]
"Your comparisons are somewhat blinded by cost. Putting so much emphasis on software for free is ridiculous and undermines the shareware philosophy."
-ANONYMOUS SHAREWARE DEVELOPER UPSET WITH THE REVIEW OF HIS PRODUCT

"I think you're right, shareware prices are too high. If people like to make little programs
that will benefit all Windows users, then it should be freeware! The happiness of many people is much more important than a few bucks for one."
-GEERT VAN KEMPEN (AUTHOR OF APPBAR)
