iambic Unveils Version 2 of Agendus for Windows Mobile

Now Optimized for Both First-Timers and Power Users With Expanded Functionality, More View Options and Many User Interface (UI) Enhancements

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - December 17, 2007) - iambic, Inc., a leading provider of innovative productivity-enhancing software, today announced the release of Agendus for Windows Mobile 2.0, a breakthrough solution for managing personal information and communications on Windows Mobile-based phones such as Palm Treo 750/700wv, Samsung Blackjack, AT&T Tilt, Motorola Q and HTC Mogul. It has been optimized for first time users of Windows Mobile devices. Plus, it is packed with many enhancements and a variety of fine-grain customization options that will benefit the more experienced and power users.

One of the areas of focus centered on how information and activities are displayed. The Today View has an all-new "Look & Feel" and includes options for changing the order of how information such as Meetings, Tasks, Calls, Stock Quotes, Weather Forecast, and Quote of the Day appear. Many new Views are available in Calendar mode, including a 7-Day Grid Mode in the Week View, an Expanded Mode in the Month View and the Quarter View, and a List View.

User experience was another area of focus. Agendus for Windows Mobile has been simplified and optimized for one-handed navigation. Updated Stock Quotes can now be easily obtained over-the-air from the Today View, along with Weather, this Day in History and Quote of the Day with just one tap. Plus the Daily Journal function, popular with owners of the Palm OS version of Agendus, is now available, so incorporating and tracking meetings, calls, tasks and more can be accomplished effortlessly.

"There has been strong growth in the number of Windows Mobile-based smartphones that have shipped this year, attracting many first time users as well as seasoned veterans," said Adriano Chiaretta, chief operating officer of iambic, Inc. "With that in mind, we set out to really 'wow' the first-timer by making Agendus for Windows Mobile an application that was intuitive and fun to use. And for the experienced power users, we took their input and made considerable improvements to the user interface and expanded the functionality of Agendus, so they'd be 'wowed' too."

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.

Agendus for Window Mobile is compatible with Windows Mobile 5 or above (this includes Windows Mobile 6 Classic and Professional Editions).
