ThinkFree Partners With Avanquest Software Publishing to Deliver Full Featured Office Productivity Applications and iPod Presentation Software Into the Retail Channel

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 27, 2006 -- ThinkFree Inc., the leading provider of cross-platform office productivity software and Avanquest Software Publishing, a leading global retail and online publisher of best-selling consumer and business software titles, today announced the retail launch of ThinkFree Office 3 and PodPresenter online into thousands of retail outlets nationwide. ThinkFree Office 3, a comprehensive Microsoft® Office compatible productivity suite, consists of Write (word processor), Calc (spreadsheet), and Show (presentation) applications while PodPresenter, designed to enhance the iPod experience and benefit both PC and Mac users, transforms the iPod into a portable presentation graphics system using ThinkFree Show.

With the wider availability of the platform independent software, customers now have additional options for purchasing ThinkFree products and getting professional sales assistance. The familiar interfaces eliminate the need to learn new applications and give the user enhanced efficiency. PodPresenter allows users such as sales professionals, teachers and students to present slides directly onto a PC or Mac computer or external projector simply through the iPod, or use their iPod as a type of USB hard drive.

"The excitement that ThinkFree has generated with these two feature-rich titles shows how users are looking for alternative ways to increase their office productivity," said Christina Seelye, president & CEO, Avanquest Publishing USA. "ThinkFree provides professionals and novices alike with real choices in staying within the cutting-edge with software such as PodPresenter, while ThinkFree Office 3 allows users to maintain maximum compatibility with Microsoft Office."
