Phatware Announces CalliGrapher 8.5

Support for Windows Mobile 6.0 allows for improvement on award-winning CalliGrapher application

Mountain View, CA, March 26, 2007 - PhatWare Corporation, a leading provider of software products and professional services for mobile and desktop computers, announces the release of the CalliGrapher 8.5. The award-winning handwriting recognition software for Windows-Mobile devices includes a Write Pad SIP and is now optimized to support Windows Mobile 6.0, including full-VGA and Square QVGA square screen devices.

Named the best software for handwriting recognition for Microsoft Windows Mobile based Pocket PCs by industry experts for five consecutive years, CalliGrapher analyzes pen strokes written in any application window or in the designated Write Pad area, then converts those pen strokes into text and sends the recognized text to the target application. Employing advanced fuzzy logic and neural net techniques, CalliGrapher recognizes arbitrary alphanumeric strings as well as words contained in its integrated dictionary.

To address the customer's needs in a fast-growing market of phone-enabled Pocket PC devices, the new version of CalliGrapher supports new screen resolution and improved inking capabilities introduced in the new version of the operating system. Calligrapher 8.5 has also been enhanced to include new icons, updated help and documentation.

"PhatWare is excited about the recent improvements made to CalliGrapher," said PhatWare president Stan Miasnikov. "Our continuous upgrades will continue to improve the user experience. Our goal is always to provide our customers with the best."

CalliGrapher 8.5 has additional performance improvements. The software supports devices running on any Windows Mobile based Pocket PC or Smartphone equipped with a touch screen. CalliGrapher 8.5 can be purchased from the PhatWare Web site for $39.95 and is a free upgrade for registered users of CalliGrapher 8.0 or later. Owners of older versions can upgrade to CalliGrapher 8.3 for $24.95. For a limited time only, PhatWare offers additional $10 discount for new and existing CalliGrapher users.
