PhatWare Updates WritePad for iPhone Featuring New Document Manager with Folders

WritePad’s new Document Manager Helps iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch Users Find Important Information Quickly by Organizing Documents in Folder Hierarchy and with Multi-document Search

Mountain View, CA, March 8, 2011 - PhatWare announces today the newest iPhone version of WritePad, the popular note taking and handwriting recognition software for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Like the iPad version released last week, WritePad now features a redesigned Document Manager, which allows users to store their documents in the app’s folder hierarchy and search all documents for specific characters or words.

Beyond the new Document Manager, WritePad now allows users to specify the remote access password for the Document Sharing feature. By specifying a password, users can protect their data from unauthorized access while sharing WritePad documents on the local network. The password is also required to upload WritePad documents on the user’s device.

"The ability to organize WritePad files in folders and support for global search are among the most requested features by our customers," said Stan Miasnikov, president of PhatWare Corp. "We are pleased to offer these and other improvements in this version and will continue working to implement other features requested by WritePad users."
