Phatware releases PhatPad 4.5 for Windows-based Tablets and PCs and Windows Mobile Devices

Updated software features improved support for Windows Vista Service Pack 1 and the latest models of Windows Mobile devices.

Mountain View, CA, May 27, 2008 - PhatWare Corporation, a leading provider of software products and professional services for mobile and desktop computers, announces the release of PhatPad 4.5, the next generation of the company's award-winning notes organizer for Microsoft Windows-based Tablet, Desktop and Windows Mobile based devices. The new version features improved compatibility with Microsoft Windows Vista, two new UI themes, Windows taskbar icon, and the ability to take a picture with the mobile device built-in camera and set it as a background image.

PhatPad allows users to draw pictures, jot notes, or put a mixture of pictures and typed text on a virtual scratch pad. The program uses new digital ink technology, which provides a very smooth ink flow, so it feels like writing on an actual piece of paper. PhatPad users can also add images, voice notes, and text and animate their handwritten notes or pictures.

PhatPad 4.5 has been updated to support Microsoft Windows Vista Service Pack 1 and the latest mobile devices powered by Windows Mobile 6.1. In addition, the desktop potion of PhatPad features two new UI themes, options that allow changing basic application behavior, and optional taskbar icon which provides quick access to the PhatPad application and allows users to hide the main window when it is minimized. The new version also allows to assign user-defined names and different background colors to pages of the PhatPad document. The Insert Photo command has been added, which allows users to take a picture using the mobile device built-in camera and set it as a background image in just a few taps.

"PhatWare is excited to improve the functionality of PhatPad based on the user's feedback," said PhatWare president Stan Miasnikov. "With the growing number of Windows Vista users we have updated PhatPad to ensure full compatibility with recently released Windows Vista Service Pack."
