Proporta Launches TomeRaider 3

After two years of development, Proporta is delighted to unveil the new and completely rewritten TomeRaider 3 - the world’s most successful cross-platform reference reader (available for Windows, Pocket PC, palmOne and Symbian).

Download your free TR3 trial version or buy from www.tomeraider.com

TomeRaider 3 Features

HTML Support: TR3 now supports HTML verbatim, making it even easier to make TR3 files as well as convert web pages directly into e-books.

The Filter Builder: This new addition allows you to view and filter TR3 files with unparalleled control.  If you want to list all the movies from a certain director, with a specified actor and of a certain running time, it’s easy with the TR3 Filter Builder.

Reference Links: Now you can join and link your collection of TomeRaider files to create really useful information systems.  For example, you might link a biblical dictionary with a bible, or an actor’s biography with a movie guide; or you might link a dictionary and encyclopaedia to all files then, from within TomeRaider, you could move back and forth between sources.

Search Acceleration: Searching even tens of megabytes is now faster than you thought was possible thanks to our unique search acceleration system.

Image Support: Now images from the small to the huge can be displayed in TR3. What’s more, the TR3 file format uses some impressive caching and optimization to minimise file size even when many images are used.

The Wikipeia: The world’s largest reference work has been converted to TR3 format and is available for free download.  At nearly 1 gigabyte this peer reviewed reference work is an astounding collection of knowledge, only TR3 has the power to handle such a gargantuan work.

Super Compression: TR2 was good, TR3 is even better. The files are smaller and they work much faster.

There are thousands of files available for TomeRaider – novels, foreign and English language dictionaries, philosophical and religious works, guides and even encyclopaedias.  For a good selection, have a look at www.memoware.com.


Coming Soon from Proporta Software

PhatWare Upgrades CalliGrapher to Version 7.4

Upgrade for Company's Award-Winning Handwriting Recognition Software for Microsoft Windows Mobile-Based Pocket PCs Includes Support for New Languages

PhatWare Corporation, a leading provider of software and professional services for mobile and desktop computers, announces today the release of CalliGrapher 7.4. The new version features Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish handwriting recognition support for Microsoft Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs. CalliGrapher is a natural handwriting recognition software that supports all handwriting styles - print, cursive or mixed.

The product's three new featured language packs are sold separately, as are the other current language pack offerings. English recognition handwriting support is standard in CalliGrapher. Other languages can be added to CalliGrapher in any combination to accommodate individual user needs.

"PhatWare is pleased to offer three new language options for its consumers through the release of CalliGrapher 7.4," says Stan Miasnikov, president of PhatWare Corporation. "The release of these new language packs will increase functionality for our current loyal customers and allow us to satisfy a larger population of Pocket PC users."

Each CalliGrapher language pack includes a language-specific handwriting recognition engine, an on-screen keyboard and a dictionary. Other new features in CalliGrapher 7.4 include the auto-corrector feature which improves quality of handwriting recognition, user-customizable recognition margins, updated toolbar graphics and more.

"PhatWare's innovation demonstrates the ability of the Windows Mobile platform to enable exciting applications and services that add value and convenience to the daily activities of the mobile professional," said Julie Wymetalek, manager of the Mobility Partner Advisory Council at Microsoft Corp. "With the release of 7.4, CalliGrapher has improved on the features that make it a leading productivity application for Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs."

CalliGrapher is optimized to work with the latest models of Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs and is certified to use the Designed for Microsoft Windows Pocket PC logo. In addition to its ability to recognize cursive, print, or mixed handwriting, CalliGrapher offers PenCommander, an easy-to-use PC navigation tool; updated graphics; increased recognition margin widths that provide more space to scroll and use toolbars; ink color selection and customizable ink width and a "Quick Correct" window for fast correction as the user writes.

Once installed on the Pocket PC, CalliGrapher is easily accessible from within most applications. CalliGrapher seamlessly integrates with PhatPad, an award-winning notes organizing software for Pocket PCs designed by PhatWare Corporation.

List price for CalliGrapher 7.4 is $29.95; however, the product is available as a free upgrade for registered users of CalliGrapher 7.x. Language packs are sold separately for $14.95 each.

All CalliGrapher products can be purchased directly from the PhatWare company Web site or from any of PhatWare's network of authorized retailers.

Beiks Announces Major Update to MedicineNet’s Pocket Medical Encyclopedia for Users of Palm OS and Pocket PC PDAs

New reference guide puts invaluable medical information in the hands of anyone concerned about health-related issues

Beiks LLC announces a major upgrade to its MedicineNet Pocket Medical Encyclopedia for Palm OS and Pocket PC handheld devices. The reference guide now includes more than 15,000 entries of medical terms, written and compiled entirely by U.S. board certified physicians, which can provide quick and easy access to healthcare related information whenever and wherever a user may need it.

Often, the times a person needs quick answers to medical questions they are not near a desktop computer or printed medical encyclopedia. The MedicineNet Pocket Medical Encyclopedia enables anyone with a Palm OS or Pocket PC PDA or smartphone to carry vast amounts of information in their pocket or purse. The information found in the Pocket Medical Encyclopedia includes not only standard medical terms but also pertinent scientific items, abbreviations, acronyms, jargon, institutions, projects, symptoms, syndromes, eponyms, and medical history.

The MedicineNet Pocket Medical Encyclopedia comes equipped with the latest version of Beiks’ award-winning BDicty Dictionary Reader, enabling users to view a wide variety of reference works available from Beiks.com. The newest version of BDicty has been upgraded with improved navigation features that have been requested by users. Further, BDicty now offers advanced data compression and cross-linkage between data files to significantly decrease the size of the data while increasing the number of entries available in the encyclopedia. The result is a 50% increase in content data, yet a 40% decrease in the required memory resources of the handheld device. “Beiks is committed to offering the best and most comprehensive medical reference resources for both consumers and medical practitioners,” said Bobby Kolev, president of Beiks LLC. “We are proud that our customers include thousands of happy consumers who need ready access to medical information, but also hospitals, medical facilities, and EMS centers.”

The MedicineNet doctors are proud to have authored the Webster’s New World™ Medical Dictionary First and Second Editions published by Wiley Publishing, Inc. MedicineNet’s content is used by libraries, government agencies, doctor’s offices, pharmacy networks, hospitals, insurance organizations, medical schools, and other healthcare organizations worldwide.

"The MedicineNet Pocket Encyclopedia gives quick and convenient access to important medical information to users of mobile devices,” said William C. Shiel, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.P., Chief Medical Editor and co-founder of MedicinetNet.com. "Each entry is written in lay language to present helpful insights into health and medical issues. At MedicineNet, we take advantage of the doctor's role as educator to bring medical information to you!"

The MedicineNet Pocket Encyclopedia, including the enhanced Beiks Dictionary Reader, is available at www.beiks.com for US$39.95.(Source: Press Release)
