iambic Unveils Version 5 of Agendus for Windows

Add-In Boosts Capabilities of Microsoft Outlook and Palm Desktop While Offering a Refreshing New Look

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - December 5, 2007) - iambic, Inc., a leading provider of innovative productivity-enhancing software, today announced the release of Agendus for Windows 5.0. This desktop version of Agendus, iambic's award-winning personal information management (PIM) program for Palm OS and Window Mobile handhelds, further boosts the capabilities of Microsoft Outlook and Palm Desktop. It also incorporates a new look that enhances how users view their calendar, contacts, tasks and more.

Agendus for Windows was designed to be the ultimate scheduling and contact management application that improves the accessibility and usability of the data people tap into on a daily basis. Version 5 offers an all new 3D glass look & feel that is very Vista-like. It has a variety of new Views, including one where the calendar for the month contains representative icons for the various scheduled activities. There is also a time-saving Contact Networking feature that makes it easy to show relationships between individuals within the user's social network. Plus the Daily Journal function, popular with owners of the Palm OS version of Agendus, is now available in Version 5 of Agendus for Windows, so incorporating and tracking meetings, calls, tasks and more can be accomplished effortlessly.

"When we developed Version 5 of Agendus for Windows, we wanted to create a productivity enhancement program that balanced features and functionality, with an emphasis on fun," said Adriano Chiaretta, chief operating officer of iambic, Inc. "We believe that this is the type of indispensable program that people who depend upon Microsoft Outlook and Palm Desktop to manage their day will actually look forward to using each and every day."

Additional New Features Include:

--  Auto-Build your Contact Webs.  Version 5 now makes linking Contacts
    even easier with the new Auto-Build feature that naturally detects Contact
    links based on criteria such as past events, last name, and company name.
    
--  "Click and Expand" Views.  Integrated into all Month views is the
    capability to simply click on a date and a descriptive pop-up containing
    the day's meetings will immediately appear.
    
--  Agenda Walkthrough Integrated Checklists. This feature enables the
    creation of lists where they may be most relevant -- within the Meeting,
    Tasks and Memo sections. Its time-saving functionality is highlighted by a
    friendly interface that facilitates use and ensures things don't fall
    through the cracks.
    
--  Meeting Check Off List.  This provides a way to see all upcoming
    meetings at-a-glance, in a formatted list that can be filtered by category,
    uncompleted, completed, canceled and 30-day interval spanned events.
    
--  Outlook 2007 Ribbon Style Toolbar. Version 5 of Agendus has its own
    ribbon style toolbar so those already comfortable interacting with Outlook
    2007 can access Agendus features in a way that is familiar.
