CalliGrapher 8.3 Increases Productivity for Windows Mobile Users

New PenCommands and Write Pad adjustments improve award-winning application

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – May 31, 2006 – PhatWare Corporation, a leading provider of software products and professional services for mobile and desktop computers, announces CalliGrapher 8.3 for increased productivity when entering handwritten data on Windows Mobile devices. CalliGrapher 8.3 features new PenCommands and the ability to hide the Write Pad toolbar.

Named the best software for handwriting recognition for Microsoft Windows Mobile based Pocket PCs by industry experts for four consecutive years, CalliGrapher analyzes pen strokes written in any application window or in the designated Write Pad area, then converts those pen strokes into text and sends the recognized text to the target application. Employing advanced fuzzy logic and neural net techniques, CalliGrapher recognizes arbitrary alphanumeric strings as well as words contained in its integrated dictionary.

To address the customer’s needs in a fast-growing market of phone-enabled Pocket PC devices, the new version of CalliGrapher features four additional PenCommands that allow dialing phone numbers, sending SMS messages and e-mails, and capturing video and still images with the built-in camera. PenCommander is a feature of CalliGrapher that allows users to launch pre-recorded, user-defined commands. For example, with PenCommander it is now possible to dial a phone number selected in any text editing application by simply using the Dial command.

While using the CalliGrapher Write Pad input method to enter text, users can now hide the Write Pad toolbar, giving them more usable space on the [WINDOWS-1252?]device’s screen. This is especially useful on devices with square screens and when the device is used in the landscape mode. Write Pad is a soft input panel that allows users to write handwritten text in a designated area. The text is immediately recognized and the recognition displayed before the text is inserted into the chosen application. The ability to hide the toolbar frees 25 percent of the space used by the input panel.

“PhatWare is constantly listening to its users’ feedback and staying up-to-date with the latest advancements in hardware devices,” said Stan Miasnikov, president of PhatWare. “We are thrilled to keep improving CalliGrapher to benefit the handheld community.”

CalliGrapher 8.3 has additional improvements for speed and quality of recognition. The software supports devices running on any Windows Mobile 2003 based Pocket PC or later; however, some new PenCommands require a phone-enabled Pocket PC and Windows Mobile 5.0. CalliGrapher 8.3 can be purchased from the PhatWare Web site for $39.95 and is a free upgrade for users of 8.0 or later. Owners of previous versions can upgrade to CalliGrapher 8.3 for $24.95. For a limited time only, PhatWare offers a $5 discount for new and existing CalliGrapher users. For more information about CalliGrapher or other PhatWare products, visit www.phatware.com.

Multi-folder, Multi-PC Synchronization Features of PocketMirror Professional 2.1 Add New Dimension of Mobile Productivity to Lives of  Smartphone Owners

MOBILE, Ala. (May 30, 2005) - Chapura(r), Inc., an innovator of synchronization technology for mobile personal information managers (PIMs), today announced that the company has updated its popular Outlook synchronization software, PocketMirror(r) Professional for Microsoft Windows Mobile, to support the Smartphone edition of Windows Mobile 5, in addition to the Pocket PC and Pocket PC Phone Editions of Windows Mobile 5.0 that the previous version supported.  The updated PocketMirror software supports the smartphones produced by manufacturers who use the default Windows Mobile Application Security Policy, such as the Moto Q smartphone from Motorola.  

PocketMirror(r) Professional 2.1 for Windows Mobile adds a new dimension
of mobile productivity to the lives of smartphone owners by allowing them to synchronize multiple Outlook folders on multiple PCs with their device and keep the folders' contents organized separately and easily identifiable on the handheld.  While the built-in ActiveSync software transfers and updates data only between the default Outlook folders on the PC and Mobile Outlook, Chapura's exclusive AnyFolder(tm) technology in PocketMirror Professional for Windows Mobile lets customers pick and choose which Outlook Contacts, Calendar and Tasks folders to synchronize with their handheld, including any public and subfolders on a Microsoft Exchange Server.  In addition, PocketMirror Professional for Windows Mobile creates folder-like categories, denoted with an asterisk, to keep the data separate on the mobile device like it is in Outlook.  This convenient mobile filing system helps customers easily synchronize work folders at their work PC and personal folders with their home PC.

"Chapura wants customers to know just how easy it is to carry and organize multiple Outlook folders on a pda or smartphone using PocketMirror Professional for Windows Mobile," said Keith Ellenberg, president of Chapura.  "'See asterisk, think folder' is the guideline for creating and identifying folder-like categories on the mobile device."  

Migrating Data from Palm OS(r) to Windows Mobile Device As consumers and enterprise customers continue to migrate between platforms, the swift and accurate transfer of personal information between devices is vital. Using PocketMirror Professional for Window Mobile in concert with PocketCopy software from Chapura, customers can easily transfer their data from the Palm(r) Desktop to the new device via Microsoft Outlook. At the touch of a button, PocketCopy copies Palm Desktop Address Book, Date Book, To Do List and Memo Pad or Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Memos information into Microsoft Outlook Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Notes.  From there, customers may use the Active Sync software on their Windows Mobile device and PocketMirror Professional for Windows Mobile to synchronize the data between Outlook and the mobile device.

Pricing and Availability
PocketMirror Professional for Windows Mobile is available for $49.95 and PocketCopy is available for $19.95 from the Chapura Web site at www.chapura.com and from leading online resellers including Handango at www.handango.com, and PocketGear at www.pocketgear.com.

Customer Service and Support
Chapura customers receive free access to the company's ActuallySM Technical Support for friendly, knowledgeable assistance with product setup and troubleshooting, available via FAQs on the company's Web site, e-mail and telephone.  (Source: Press Release)
