Quick take: Act 2006

Following on my earlier review of new software tools, I’ve been playing with the new edition of Best Software’s Act, Act 2006. (Disclosure: this was a complimentary review copy.)

For my purposes, there are only two significant upgrades:
1) This is significantly faster. Slow speed was my biggest complaint about Act 2005.
2) The groups functionality is much more effective. The functionality in the prior version was incredibly kludgey.

I’m not sure if it’s worth paying a lot of money for this upgrade, but these improvements do make my life a little easier.
