Whereas many other movie organiser programs that are widely available allow you to record extremely detailed information about every aspect of your DVD collection Flickz, by contrast, stores only a modest but important sub-set of the total amount of information available.
The real power of Flickz lies in it's unique Display Filter search facility and the in-depth hyperlinked cross-referencing built into the compendious HTML web pages that are generated by the program.
These pages not only form the basis of a self-contained personalised web site, but also serve as a research springboard into The Internet Movie Database via a movie title or cast member link.
Flickz also creates a corresponding sub-set of web pages that are optimised for viewing on a PDA type hand-held device. As well as the facility to export the details as text, there is also a comprehensive backup and restore facility to ensure that your data is always safe and sound.
Entering a new title is simplicity itself, since all necessary details, including a thumbnail image and plot summary are automatically imported from The Internet Movie Database. This does, of course, assume that you have a working internet connection, preferably broadband. In fact without such a connection, Flickz will not be of much benefit to you!
