New software allows creation of feature-rich mobile phone databases without programming
Philadelphia, PA (May 28, 2002). SYWARE Inc., leading developer of intuitive database tools for business and personal productivity, today introduced FoneDB®, the first database software for Smartphone devices, at the Pocket PC Summit. Based on Microsoft's Windows Powered Smartphone 2002 software, FoneDB allows mobile content developers and users to quickly and easily create full-color, mobile phone databases without programming.
"The integrated voice, data, and multimedia capabilities of Smartphone 2002 devices are going to power the next generation of highly portable applications," said Sy Danberg, CEO of SYWARE, Inc. "The lightweight, phone-handheld combination provides an opportunity to distribute mobile information to an as yet untapped base of phone users. Whether you're a content developer working on a 5-star restaurant guide or a corporation creating an in-house white pages, FoneDB provides quick and easy, feature-rich data publishing without requiring you to be a C/C++ developer."
FoneDB applications are developed with a set of common controls: labels, edit boxes, check boxes, and selection boxes. Data can be formatted as text, integer, floating point, currency, date, or time.
Using FoneDB is easy. Data can be viewed in list mode (one line per record), view mode (single record, read-only), or edit mode (single record, read/write). Selection boxes can be manipulated with up/down, left/right buttons. Data can also be sorted and searched.
FoneDB is currently in beta test. The final product will ship in Q3 2002.
