SYWARE’s Visual CE® Tightly Integrates Google Maps Mobile with Easy-to-Use Database Software for Windows Mobile Pocket PCs

Allows users to build handheld database applications with built-in mapping capabilities.

CAMBRIDGE, MA, U.S.A. – September 12, 2007 – SYWARE, Inc., a leading developer of mobile database tools for business and personal productivity, today announced that Visual CE, the award-winning rapid application development software for database and forms development on Microsoft® Windows Mobile Pocket PCs, now support Google Maps Mobile. Applications built with Visual CE can launch Google Maps Mobile and display the map or satellite view of the area related to a specific record.

To display the area relating to the current record, users simply click a button on the Visual CE form. Visual CE will retrieve the location from the current record, launch Google Maps Mobile, and display the area in map view or satellite view. The record may contain an absolute address (for example, "1600 Pennsylvania Ave Washington D.C.") or a description (for example, "Statue of Liberty").

The integration of Google Maps Mobile with Visual CE means developers can create information-rich, mobile database applications for end users in just a few hours or days. For example, an inspection company can create a database application that allows inspectors to find directions to the site they are to inspect.
