Agendus Now Available for Windows Mobile Pocket PC Devices

New Version of iambic's Award-Winning, Personal Information Management Program Works Seamlessly With Pocket Outlook and Unleashes the Pocket PC's Productivity Potential

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 14, 2007 -- iambic, Inc., a leading provider of productivity enhancement software for handheld computers (PDAs and smartphones), today announced the release of Agendus for Windows Mobile, Pocket PC Edition, a breakthrough solution for managing personal information and communications on Windows Mobile-based Treos or other Pocket PC-based handheld devices.

Part of the award-winning Agendus family of products, Agendus for Windows Mobile shares the ease-of-use and superb contact management features that have made it a favorite on Treos and other Palm OS-based devices.

It uses the same core data source as Pocket Outlook, so when changes are made in one program, the other gets updated. Plus it works directly with the Desktop ActiveSync and the Exchange Server ActiveSync Push technologies, so synchronization with a desktop/notebook computer or Exchange server is seamless.

"The market for Windows Mobile Pocket PC devices is taking off, and as a result, we felt compelled to explore how Agendus could evolve onto this emerging platform," said Adriano Chiaretta, chief operating officer at iambic, Inc. "We are all very excited about this new addition to our Agendus family of personal productivity solutions and we hope Pocket PC phone and handheld users will enjoy its many functionalities as much as we did designing and developing them."

Key Features: Some of the key features of Agendus for Windows Mobile, Pocket PC edition include:

        Superb Contact Management:  Thinking beyond the address book,
        Agendus for Windows Mobile not only captures key information about
        your contact (including photos, birthday, and communication
        history), it also makes it easy to interact/communicate with the
        contact (schedule meetings, send messages, manage Tasks, etc.).
        And Agendus' advanced searching and sorting capabilities simplify
        maneuvering through the address book.

        Optimize How You Schedule Your Life:  Agendus for Windows Mobile
        optimizes to how you go about scheduling your life.  From a single
        screen with numerous View options (Day, Week, Month), you can
        easily schedule meetings, create (and track) tasks (AKA To Do
        items), write memos, create contacts and check email.

        Helps You Get Things Done:  Agendus makes your list of To Dos seem
        less daunting.  It has many features for helping you prioritize
        action items and even prompts you (via built-in alarms) to make
        sure you don't miss deadlines.

        Ease of Use:  Agendus has been optimized for one-handed
        navigation, and has other useful features (such as press-and-hold
        pop-up menus and power search) that go a long way towards
        improving the convenience factor (simplifies getting information
        into the Pocket PC and makes it easy to leverage that information
        throughout the busy day).

        Leverages Wireless Capabilities:  Agendus enables automatic syncing
        of your data wirelessly via the Pocket PC device's wireless
        capabilities.  It also offers a number of over-the-air (OTA)
