VITO AstroNavigator II to Seize the Universe

Touch the Sky!

            April 20, 2007 – VITO Technology releases VITO AstroNavigator II, the GPS application that displays the sky map above you according to your current position, time and direction of movement. It is high time to break away from all the high-tech around and watch the night sky!

With new VITO AstroNavigator II you can literally reach out and touch the sky. Just slide with a finger to rotate the screen and see a star, a planet, or a constellation. Tap one of them to read a wealth of information about any celestial body.

Screen tapping is brought to a completely new level in the new VITO AstroNavigator II. You will feel that touching the sky can be real fun. Everything (including zooming) can be done just by sliding the screen. Just like you all have recently seen in the famous presentation of a new “iDevice”.

VITO AstroNavigator II is a program for fun and rest. Imagine yourself lying on the seaside enjoying the view of the cloudless night sky and learning everything you’ve ever wanted to know about these things above you. Another way to use VITO AstroNavigator II is to impress your girlfriend on the first date by naming the stars or constellations you see in the sky. Be closer to the Nature and to the Universe with VITO AstroNavigator II.      (Source: Press Release)

FlexMail 2007 Rev 2 is out - Smartphone/Pocket PC - Its a whole new FlexMail in more ways than ever before.

Just wanted to let you know about FlexMail 2007 Rev 2 being released for Windows Mobile Smartphone and Pocket PCs! It brings full IMAP IDLE for push email to Windows Mobile, two way live synching of email over IMAP (i.e. changes you make on the client are made immediately on the server with IMAP), hot keys for performing actions on your email with a keyboard, full HTML email support, Mail Rules, Windows Mobile 6 support and more! This is a new FlexMail in more ways than ever before.

Enough about marketing though - I'd like to write to you about a legacy that FlexMail has had and give you an open and honest response. FlexMail has always been a leader in email features on Windows Mobile, but we always seemed to have just one major issue that defined a release. When we designed FlexMail we saw that people wanted FlexMail integrated into their systems - they did not want the built in Messaging to show up. Pocket Informant was always successful in this, but we found that for FlexMail we had to go further. In testing this worked fine but in the real world it simply did not. For that I can only apologize. With Rev 2 we brought in a group of people who had torn FlexMail to pieces in reviews or discussion posts. We took all the user cases we found and ran through them. We redesigned many internal areas. Refined many areas. Over 5000 hours of development time went into Rev 2 to resolve the issues that caused some customers grief. I hope you enjoy what we've worked so hard on. And yes, we've tested uninstalls :)

For a really good reason about FlexMail's use on a Smartphone read Steve Hagerott's column about Windows Mobile 6 where he talks about FlexMail on the Smartphone and the unique situation he's in and how he uses the Rules feature to manage his email: http://mobilitytoday.com/articles/windows_mobile_6_part_2.html

FlexMail is $29.95 at many locations including the WebIS store. 15 day trial available.   (Source: Press Release)

Astraware now accepts PayPal

THE MIDLANDS, UK - April 17th, 2007 - Astraware is pleased to announce a new way to buy games and applications from their online store due to customers' requests for alternative payment methods. Many customers either didn't have the particular types of card Astraware accepts or they didn't have a credit card at all, and so requested that Astraware accept PayPal. as an alternative to cards. After a bit of nifty integration work from David Oakley, Astraware's CTO, PayPal. is now live on the Astraware website.

"We get almost as many requests for different ways of paying and changes to our site as we do for developing different games - the number of PayPal requests has been steadily increasing over the last year until it was our most frequent request," said Howard Tomlinson, CEO of Astraware.

"PayPal's Express Checkout system was easy to integrate into our store's checkout and also easy for our customers to use," said David Oakley, CTO of Astraware. "For people who already use PayPal it significantly reduces the amount of information they need to provide to buy our games."

Customers who choose to pay with PayPal. instead of the usual checkout system will be redirected to the PayPal. site to put in their login details and confirm the transaction. Once completed the site will instantly redirect the customer back to the Astraware website to complete the transaction and the customer will receive their registration code on screen there and then so they can start playing the game immediately. Their code will also be emailed to them as usual so they can keep a record of their transaction. Customers who are familiar with using PayPal. should hopefully find this will be just like their experiences at other sites!

The initial roll-out of this enhancement is for purchases of Astraware developed and published products, so the option to use PayPal. won't be available at the checkout if customers have added one of the titles (from the Astraware Lifestyle catalog, for instance) that Astraware resells for other companies. All being well, Astraware hopes to extend this service across all products on its site in the near future.

For more information on Astraware accepting PayPal., please visit the Astraware website at http://www.astraware.com.  (Source: Press Release)
