    SYWARE’s "Report CE" Software Provides Global Community of Pocket PC users in Hundreds of Different Market Verticals Only Product for Writing Reports Directly from Pocket PCs onto Paper in the Field

    SYWARE Enables Users to Mobilize Information Between Central Facilities and the Field and Print Reports on Paper-- Anywhere

    SYWARE, Inc. announced today that it provides the only software for a global community of Pocket PC users to print reports directly to paper from the Pocket PC device in the field, wherever the user needs to work, without having to go back to the office or print from a device located in the vehicle. Report CE works with most all other popular database tools, including Visual CE, Microsoft Pocket Access, and SQL Server CE. SYWARE enables companies of all sizes and individuals to develop and deploy mobile Pocket Access applications. SYWARE’s Visual CE 9 Pocket PC Database and PDA development software product, and its integrated products for wireless synchronization and remote printing, allow complete and robust mobile applications to be implemented. SYWARE requires no programming to develop robust applications on Windows Mobile PDAs.

    "Mobile workers can now print professional reports-- that relate to their specific industry, or task, directly from a Pocket PC, without the need to go back to the office," said Sy Danberg, President, SYWARE. "This unique report writing software tool also brings full-featured printing capabilities to Pocket PCs, which normally cannot print on their own," Danberg added.

    The City of Irving, TX announced that SYWARE’s Visual CE software can be used to develop handheld applications, allowing the City’s code enforcement information from the mainframe to be loaded to handheld devices for the inspection officials to perform their duties in the field. City officials will be able to record results of their inspections on the handheld, bringing back the handheld to the office to load on a docking station so that the mainframe and PC Log are updated. This will minimize the data entry that Code Enforcement currently does on the mainframe and PC. Along with the efficiencies that the handheld provides, the inspection official will be able to print inspection reports and field notices in the field to give property management. Additional software (Report CE) will be used to design and print the reports on IRDA (infra red device attachment) printers along side the handheld so that officials can print the necessary reports anywhere without having to go back to a vehicle. For more information on Report CE, visit www.syware.com and click on the "Products" button of the navigation bar or visit http://www.syware.com/prodlib/prodlib.htm directly.

    PhatWare Announces CalliGrapher 8.0 with Support for Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0

    Support for Windows Mobile 5.0 and New Data Input Method Are Top Features for Award-Winning Handwriting Recognition Software

    PhatWare Corporation , a leading provider of software products and professional services for mobile and desktop computers, announces the immediate availability of CalliGrapher 8.0. Most notable new features of the award-winning handwriting recognition software include support for Windows Mobile 5.0, a new soft input panel called Write Pad and the Statistical Analyzer.

    CalliGrapher, one of the most popular Pocket PC handwriting recognition applications on the market, 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.

    CalliGrapher 8.0 supports the Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 software platform. In addition to the classic CalliGrapher “Write Anywhere” input method, which allows users to enter handwritten information anywhere on the screen, CalliGrapher 8.0 introduces a new soft input panel called Write Pad. Write Pad is a specified area at the bottom of the screen where users can enter handwritten information that is instantly recognized and converted to the digital text. The text can be easily sent to the desired application.

    “We developed CalliGrapher 8.0 to enhance Pocket PC computing through a unique handwriting recognition application,” said PhatWare President Stan Miasnikov. “We believe we have accomplished this with Write Pad and the Statistical Analyzer; and our Beta testers agree.”

    CalliGrapher 8.0 includes a new Statistical Analyzer feature that improves overall handwriting recognition quality by addressing common recognition errors. The analyzer learns the user’s writing habits by accumulating information about the words the user writes over a period of time. When enough data is collected, the analyzer automatically fixes common recognition errors based on the user’s writing patterns.

    Users can now switch between four recognition modes, including mixed cursive and print, upper case characters only, numbers only and Internet addresses, for more accurate recognition. The RiteCalc feature allows users to write simple mathematical formulas that CalliGrapher will solve.

    Additional new features include improved handwriting recognition engine, new color selector to choose pen and Write Pad colors, improved graphics, floating and attachable on-screen keyboard with autocomplete, the ability to import and export user dictionary and Auto Corrector word lists as a text file, and improved support for landscape screen layout and full-VGA devices. A complete list of new features can be found on the CalliGrapher 8.0 Web site, http://www.phatware.com/calligrapher/.

    “With the latest enhancements to CalliGrapher’s handwriting recognition technology, Calligrapher 8.0 delivers a powerful, compelling way professionals can capture information on their Windows Mobile 5.0-based Pocket PCs,” said Chris Hill, group product manager, Windows Mobile and Embedded Devices Division at Microsoft Corp.

    In addition to handwriting recognition, CalliGrapher offers PenCommander, an easy-to-use PC navigation tool, and a "Quick Correct" window for fast correction as the user writes. CalliGrapher also offers language pack offerings for 11 foreign languages and Medical Pack, a 130,000-word professional-strength English language medical dictionary.

    CalliGrapher 8.0 supports devices running on Windows Mobile 2003 or later. The software can be purchased from the PhatWare Web site for $39.95. Owners of previous versions can upgrade to CalliGrapher 8.0 for $24.95. For more information about CalliGrapher 8.0 or other PhatWare products, visit www.phatware.com. (Source: Press Release)
