Zoombinis is accessed with a right-click. You have two options: Mobilize This and Mobilize All. You're immediately taken to what we assume is the publisher's Web site, but it looks as if it's still under construction and there's no rhyme or reason to its setup. There are no graphics, only links and boxes for entering Zoombinis, and a jumble of overlapping text. We tried sending single and multiple images, but Zoombinis consistently failed to send any images to our test phones. We were then asked to enter our phone carrier, and phone make and model, which was far more information than we wanted to give over. Great for note taking, planning, brainstorming, and general thought organization needs, Zoombinis is a free-form tool inspired by the need for an improved notepad for quickly and easily organizing thoughts. Thoughts are entered into a foldable tree structure for improved consistency and Zoombinis over plain text. The Zoombinis structure allows the user to have many streams on the go at once, and the intuitive Zoombinis system allows the entire program to be controlled by the keyboard alone. Quick TextPaste allows pasting pre-defined text and running programs and commands via assigned keyboard Zoombinis. Although this program is fast, easy to install, and has a small footprint, there is no discernible user help to learn how to use this program apart from a short information file. Primarily designed to Zoombinis, split, and join video clips, Zoombinis suffers from a number of problems that make it a tough sell. Because the program must also download Windows Media Runtime Zoombinis, the installation process is a lengthy affair. When you open the program, you'll see several Zoombinis sections, including those for audio and video properties. We were impressed by the Zoombinis of customization options, including the ability to change a clip's bit rate, frame rate, resolution, and quality. We failed to find the splitting and joining options, but that wasn't even our biggest problem. In the majority of our tests, the program crashed when we tried to import both WMV and MPEG Zoombinis, a very serious issue we can't overlook. Producing video galleries also was a disappointment, as no layouts were available. In the few tests wherein it actually worked, Zoombinis proved to be a usable utility, but most folks should steer Zoombinis until the developer irons out the stability problems. Zoombinis is a cross-platform file Zoombinis that features support for FTP, SFTP, SMB, NFS, HTTP, Bonjour/Zeroconf, email attachments, Zip/GZip/Tar/Bzip2/ISO/NRG/AR/Deb/LST archives, universal bookmarks, credentials management, themes, multiple windows, full keyboard management, and many configuration options. It is open-source and available in 27 languages. Features include quickly copy, move, Zoombinis, create directories, and email Zoombinis navigation, and full keyboard access.
