PhatWare Releases PenCommander 1.5

New version has been optimized for Ultra-Mobile PCs; provides new user-level functions; improved performance; support for 32 single-stroke gestures; and more.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA August 30, 2006 - PhatWare Corporation, a leading provider of software products and professional services for mobile and desktop computers, announces the release of PenCommander 1.5. PenCommander is a stand-alone application that features a powerful scripting technology and is now enhanced to support Microsoft Windows based Tablet and Ultra-Mobile PCs.

PenCommander allows users to employ the pen to call up commands that can control Tablet PCs and UMPCs in almost limitless ways, such as editing documents, inserting often-repeated text into documents and launching applications. To execute a PenCommand, simply write a PenCommand name on the PenCommander input panel. PenCommander is the best tool for entering repetitive data, accessing frequently used applications and documents, inserting time, date and signature, and overall extending Tablet PC and UMPC functionality and user's productivity. It provides a simple and fast way to access functions that typically take longer to complete.

In addition to support for Microsoft Windows based UMPCs, PenCommander 1.5 also includes an updated scripting engine, which supports new user-level functions and improved performance. Most commonly used keyboard shortcuts and PenCommands can now be assigned to single stroke gestures. The application supports 32 gestures.

PenCommander 1.5 has a new customizable user interface for Visual PenCommander, which provides an IDE-like environment for creating and testing new PenCommander scripts. PenCommander's input panel can be made semi-transparent, allowing a user to view other applications' windows under the panel.

"PhatWare is excited to improve the functions of PenCommander for Tablet PCs and UMPCs based on the suggestions we have received from our customers," said PhatWare president Stan Miasnikov. "We are eager to release the upgraded PenCommander 1.5 version to the Tablet PC and UMPC community."

PenCommander 1.5 for Tablet PCs costs $29.95, and can be purchased directly from the PhatWare Web site or any of PhatWare's network of authorized retailers.
