KlipFolio 3.0, Personal Dashboard, Now Generally Available

Latest Version Launches With Input From More Than 5000 Beta Testers Worldwide

OTTAWA, ON -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 3, 2006 -- Serence Inc. today announced the general availability of KlipFolio 3.0, the world's smallest and most configurable personal dashboard for monitoring multiple online information sources in real time, directly on the desktop.

KlipFolio 3.0 can be used to monitor anything from weather, stocks, auctions and email to news, blog posts, forums and RSS feeds, within a modular user interface that can be easily customized by users to suit their particular needs. Unlike widgets, KlipFolio provides a consistent user experience and uses very little desktop space, so it's easy to configure and use throughout the day.

KlipFolio users can visit the newly launched KlipFolio.com (previously KlipFarm.com) community and choose from more than 3000 user-contributed Klips; mini-applications that plug in to KlipFolio. Users can download new Klips for CNET Download.com, Webshots, the iTunes Music Store, Ebay, Hotmail and LiveJournal. These third-generation Klips process HTML and XML and deliver a rich monitoring experience for users, taking full advantage of new image, column and formatting support in KlipFolio 3.0.

"The KlipFolio community is amazing and growing at an incredible rate. Since our last release, our KlipFolio user-base has doubled, and daily visitors to KlipFolio.com are well over 30,000. Users love the simplicity of getting all of their information in one place with little or no drain on their systems," said Allan Wille, president and CEO of Serence Inc. "It's also exciting to witness the groundswell of enthusiasm when it comes to Klips. We have people all over the world developing and contributing Klips to the community. Because of our extensive API, developers are creating Klips in minutes, not days as they would with widgets or sidebars."
