SYWAREs PocketExtra Software Extends Capabilities of Microsoft Pocket Outlook

New software utility allows handheld users to add information, drawings, and
handwritten notes to Pocket PC¹s 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 SYWARE¹s
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 PC¹s 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. It¹s everything you
need to really Œmanage¹ your contacts and at under $10, it¹s a no-brainer!"
Increased Flexibility
PocketExtra Contacts allows users to customize the capabilities of the
Pocket PC¹s built-in Contacts application. New fields of information can be
added which contain a variety of data types, including text, floating point
numbers, integers, currency, dates, or time. Even simple drawings and
handwritten notes can be added to any contact entry.
This allows a user, for instance, to create a new contact list for their
neighborhood association. The new list can include all the basic contact
data for the people in the association, plus highlight information about
special skills, meeting dates, and membership dues status. Drawings of the
"neighborhood watch" detail can even be added to relevant records.
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 it¹s 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.
Pricing & Delivery 
PocketExtra Contacts runs on any Pocket PC handheld and is available from
the SYWARE online store ( ) for $9.99.
