How can I use the SiDiary USB-Stick in the best possible way?

SiDiary Plug&Play, that means SiDiary on the USB-Stick is our featured model. The program is preinstalled and already registered on it. You can use it on any PC with Windows2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7 without the need to install something.
Besides the version 5 here you have also a transaction number now, so you can install SiDiary also on your PC and mobile devices (Pocket PC, Windows Smartphone and Java cell phones) and use it full functional.
You will find the transaction number in the register dialogue:
