Boonex Dolphin has been around for quite some time and has a pretty big following of users.
In this Boonex Dolphin Review, I'm going to take you on a tour of the free edition and discuss some of my thoughts on the product and its uses.

The default setup is nice and clean and gives you a decent idea as to what you can expect.
