Daylite 3.5 Released With Apple Sync Capability for iPhone, iPod, BlackBerry, Palm and Other Handheld Devices, Plus Contextual Help and Enhanced Collaboration

Apple Road Warriors Rejoice! Marketcircle Takes Advantage of Apple's Sync Services to Extend Daylite Productivity to the Palm of Your Hand

TORONTO--(Marketwire - September 21, 2007) - Daylite 3.5, the newest version of Marketcircle Inc.'s Mac productivity management software, takes advantage of Apple's Sync Services to bring Daylite contacts, appointments, tasks, and reminders to iPhone, iPod, Blackberry, Palm, Windows Mobile devices and many popular cellphones.

Designed for the unique needs of Mac-based businesses of 1-50 people, Daylite 3.5 is the latest version of Marketcircle's award-winning productivity management software and the only Mac-based productivity management application that helps an organization at every stage of the business cycle. From identifying and qualifying opportunities to the delivery of projects, Daylite 3.5 is a powerful resource for tracking and managing business activities and outcomes.

"What we've been able to do with Apple's Sync Services is open up a new era of mobile productivity to the multi-user Mac business community," says Alykhan Jetha, CEO of Marketcircle Inc. "With Daylite 3.5 anyone can share business contacts and calendar items -- even meetings -- between Macs and iPhones or other handheld devices. It truly brings Daylite conveniences to the palm of your hand."

To protect personal privacy, Daylite 3.5's new syncing abilities allow users to select and sync distinct contact categories (prospects and customers, but not personal contacts, for example).

Daylite 3.5 also introduces more than 300 contextual help articles via Apple Help designed to expose little-known, but powerful Daylite features to more users, and to simplify the "getting started" process for new users.

In addition, Daylite 3.5 provides more than 100 enhancements including support for international time zones, and the ability to multi-select Daylite-enabled colleagues to set or revise appointments, tasks, projects and opportunities. A new multi-user trash system allows everyone in a Daylite workgroup to review or re-instate trashed items no matter who deleted them or how. Exporting now includes tab delimited as well as .csv formats.

To connect Daylite to regular phones, Daylite 3.5 users require iSync 2.4 or higher (in Mac OS X 10.4.9 or higher). For BlackBerry devices, they require Missing Sync for BlackBerry 1.0.1 or higher. For Palm devices, they require Missing Sync for Palm 6.0 or higher. For Windows Mobile devices, they require Missing Sync for Windows Mobile 4.0 or higher. See Apple's iSync compatibility page for a complete list of supported devices.

Daylite 3.5 is a free upgrade for Daylite 3.x users. Daylite 3.5 is included in the Daylite Productivity Suite that bundles Daylite 3 with Marketcircle's Daylite Mail Integration Module (DMI 2.0.5) for US $189. Sold separately, Daylite 3.5 retails for US $149 and DMI 2.0.5 retails for US $49. International pricing applies. New customers can try Daylite 3.5 free for 30 days at www.marketcircle.com.
