MobiForms Version 2.21 Released With Signature Capture

Following customer demand the team at MobiForms have added signature capture and sketching capabilities into the latest release of MobiForms 2.21. MobiForms 2.21 also includes additional commands in the simple MobiScript language such as if, end if and loops providing true programming power. MobiForms 2.21 has improved support for Oracle and Sybase databases. Alternatively, with no database installed MobiForms can be programmed to read or write to any ASCII file format instead.

MobiForms is a revolutionary rapid application development (RAD) tool for mobile applications on Windows CE, Pocket PC, EPOC/Symbian and Palm. MobiForms lets you develop professional applications like asset collection, field service, inspection, market research, site surveys, stock control or workshop management.

MobiForms gives you the power of a whole army of unrelenting programmers by automating the development process. With MobiForms an application that would traditionally take days to write in Java or C++ can be built in minutes.

Astraware and Pazzazz Games are pleased to announce the release of Moonfighter for Palm OS(R) and Windows Mobile(R) for Pocket PC

Moonfighter is a fun gravity-based shoot-em-up that challenges players to pilot their spacecraft around lunar terrains and blast aliens whilst collecting energy spheres to extend their mission time. Players can progress through thousands of Moonfighter levels, each one offering more challenging terrains and more enemy attacks.

"This is the kind of spacey game I grew up with - careful maneuvering, rotate and thrust just enough to stay in place but not too much..." said Howard Tomlinson, CEO of Astraware. "Great for practising and getting my dexterity back!"

Moonfighter offers three types of alien enemies: Turrets - static units placed at strategic points around the terrain; Spiderbots - walking units that climb the cavern walls and Saucerbots - anti-gravity platforms that can float around. Enemy attacks take the form of Guns - unguided laser bolts with unlimited range; Missiles - medium range guided torpedoes; and G-weapons - short range gravity distortion fields that either attract or repel your craft. As players fly around the alien terrains they will encounter narrow valleys, lunar peaks, and underground caverns many of which are protected by heavy-duty blast doors.

Moonfighter is developed by Pazzazz Games, creators of the award winning GTS Racing Challenge and Hellfire: Apache vs Hind, and exclusively published by Astraware. The game is available at http://www.astraware.com/moonfighter, priced $19.95, but check the Astraware website for a special release discount!  (Source: Press Release)

VITO Technology announces its firstling in sports oriented software

VITO Technology is proud to present its brand-new product VITO ActiveTrace. ActiveTrace is a Pocket PC/Smartphone program with GPS navigation support for all gadgeteers who happen to have aspiration for sport. Even if you are far from going in for sport you can’t help feeling like a real sportsman with all the possibilities VITO ActiveTrace provides.

ActiveTrace is specially designed to watch your sports progress. There are several sports activities that are best for training with VITO ActiveTrace:

°        running
°        roller-skating
°        biking
°        cycling
°        mountain skiing
°        cross-country skiing
°        snowboarding

ActiveTrace records your track while you are performing any of these activities and keeps all the necessary statistics with your achievements, such as max/min speed, altitude, average speed, acceleration, overall time, distance, calories burnt and some other activity dependant stats.

With VITO ActiveTrace you get the total control over your training performance. Use it to record your tracks and have all the necessary stats displayed on-line while a track is being recorded. This information is carefully saved for further references and thorough investigation after you finished recording your track. You can always find out your speed and altitude at a certain track point.

VITO ActiveTrace is especially useful for going in for sport (or just for a walk) with your friends. At any point of your trip you can exchange your coordinates with friends via sms messages instead of wasting time on looking for each other.

User friendly interface provides you with a convenient way of managing this info; there are several view modes available in VITO ActiveTrace. They are designed to bring forward different aspects of your activity and give you more specific information:

Trips view allows you to switch between different trips, record new ones and perform all the general actions like renaming or deleting your tracks, etc.

Track view displays your track and allows you to navigate along your track, zoom in/out, set pushpins. It also displays your friends’ coordinates as set pushpins or as moving pushpins if you wish.

Statistics view displays your training results and can also switch to the track view to show the exact point on the track where you achieved for instance max speed.

Altitude and speed views graphically represent the altitude and the speed of your trip.

VITO ActiveTrace supports major windows mobile powered Pocket PCs and Smartphones (WM 5.0 compatible). It is available as an executable or zipped file and as a .cab archive for over-the-air download. Trial version is available for free download; full version can be purchased for $29.99 at the web site www.ActiveTrace.com. Volume discounts are available.
