Updating AAS Software Listings for N97

When do you suppose that we will see an update to AAS's Software Listing to include the N97?

Meanwhile I've been scanning the web for replacements for two programs that I found invaluable on my 9300:

Smallbase by Cortisoft (relational database)
Passwords by Freepoc (encrypted password manager)

There are just two few software reviews by S60 users and I really, really don't trust any software company that includes the word "Best" in the program title of every offering in they have.

The few S60 software screen captures that I've seen look pretty juvenile in terms of usability, which is why a detailed review is so important.

I also am hesitant to spend money on S60 3rd edition software which may only have limited functionality on the N97.

So...PLEASE share your observations good or bad about any software that you try. This information is valuable to others.

AAS recently praised Hack Proof Password Manager. Does this do what you want?

I've used Best Blacklist on my N95 and it was excellent. I can understand, though, that it's probably a little suspicious that a company would do that.

Yes, thank you!

I'm always a bit wary of password managers--what if they collected your data for a month and then sent them all back to some hacker somewhere?

The systems where I have to use an RSA timecode token in addition to a strong password + 7-digit PIN I don't worry about. The token stays in my pocket.

But for banking and credit card accounts I believe in a healthy level of paranoia.

Now I just need a good relational database for S60-5th Ed.

What about http://my-symbian.com/s60v3/software...uto=179&faq=23.

Shows in the 3rd edition software list but scroll down and the N97 is listed in the compatability list. Trouble is, as with most reviews, there's good and bad and having not used it myself it's not something i could endorse.

Will keep an eye open in case I spot anything else.

It would've been good if quickoffice extended its support to Access databases, then that might've solved the problem
