SYWARE Releases FoneDB 2.0, Personal Database Software for Windows Mobile Smartphones
Cambridge, MA (March 29, 2004)-SYWARE, Inc., a leading developer of intuitive database tools for business and personal productivity, today announced FoneDB® 2.0, the newest version of the company's database software for Windows® Mobile-powered Smartphones. First introduced in 2002, FoneDB allows users to quickly and easily create personal databases. New features include synchronization of mobile data with desktop or server PCs, calculated fields that automatically apply mathematical operations, and filters that efficiently sort and display stored information. Whether tracking expenses or reviewing sports stats, FoneDB takes personal productivity to a new level.
"The Smartphone market continues to grow, with more models and lower prices fueling wider adoption ... but wireless technology is still evolving," said Sy Danberg, President of SYWARE, Inc. "As a result, there is an increasing need for intelligent local data storage. FoneDB 2.0 is the first personal database software for Smartphone devices. It addresses this need by providing a way for virtually anyone to quickly and easily access data residing directly on a Smartphone."
New in FoneDB 2.0 is the ability to quickly and easily synchronize data that's been collected from a Smartphone with a desktop PC. In addition, FoneDB can read data from any ODBC-enabled database, including Microsoft Access, Oracle, and SQL Server. And ODBC-enabled applications, such as Crystal Reports and Microsoft Excel, can read and write data in a FoneDB database.
Calculated fields have also been added to FoneDB 2.0. A great time-saver, calculated fields allow users to automatically apply mathematical operations to field values. Operations include addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. As an example, a 15% tip can be calculated based on an expense value.
FoneDB 2.0 now provides filter operations to help users search through large, cumbersome lists. These filters allow a view to be narrowed to just those records that meet particular criteria. For example, you can find only those invoices that are over $500. Or you can find the antique shows that will be in Boston during the month of April.
