SYWARE's PocketExtra® Software Extends Capabilities of Microsoft Pocket Outlook
New software utility allows handheld users to add information, drawings, and handwritten notes to Pocket PC's built-in Contacts app
Cambridge, MA (November 12, 2001) - SYWARE, Inc., a leading developer of intuitive database tools for business and personal productivity, today announced PocketExtra Contacts, the first in a series of low cost, easy-to-use software utilities that expands the capabilities of the built-in applications on Pocket PC handhelds. PocketExtra Contacts, part of SYWARE's PocketExtra family of software products, allows users to extend the Contacts application built-into all Pocket PCs. New fields can be created to store additional information, such as text, numbers, time, and currency; color can be added to highlight important data; information can be grouped for fast access; and simple drawings and handwritten notes can be added to entries in the Contacts list, all for a low $9.99 price.
"For many Pocket PC users, the Contacts application is the main reason they carry a device," said Sy Danberg, President of SYWARE. "But who said a contacts program had to be a plain vanilla listing of name, address, and phone number? The PocketExtra series was created for people who want to extend the Pocket PC's built-in applications rather than develop a whole new custom database. With PocketExtra Contacts you can save additional information with your existing Pocket Outlook Contacts list, use color to draw attention to certain fields, track dates and dollar amounts, even further explain entries with drawings and written notes. It's everything you need to really 'manage' your contacts and at under $10, it's a no-brainer!"
Additional PocketExtra Contacts features include the use of color to highlight important information. To speed data entry, the software supports dropdown lists, checkboxes, and pop-up numberpads. For faster access to data once it's stored, users can create custom headings and group information accordingly. With such a wide array of data types, PocketExtra Contacts can be used to track dollar amounts paid or owed, to monitor important dates, and to track time down to the minute.
