[10:00 AM] PIM Software Can Now Synch With Palm Over The Internet
Chronos updated their personal information management application, Personal Organizer, to version 3.04. Also receiving an update to version 3.04 was Group Organizer. Both of these products simplify the handling of personal information, and can synch with the Palm Computing Platform. According to Chronos:
Personal & Group Organizer 3.0.4 expand their industry-leading Palm Synchronization features by adding support for the popular DateBk4 program from Pimlico Software. DateBk4 replaces the standard DateBook application that comes on every PalmOS device. Unlike the standard program, DateBk4 allows users to enter a category for each appointment they create on their PalmPilot or Visor.
Only in Personal & Group Organizer 3.0.4 can one find all of these cutting-edge features:
Full synchronization of all built-in Palm applicationsincluding the Memo Pad.
The ability to select individual Organizer categories to synchronize. Users no longer have to transfer EVERYTHING from their desktop software to their PalmPilot, which cuts down on memory usage.
The ability to select individual Palm categories to synchronize. Organizers intelligent Palm Wizard will query the PalmPilot prior to synching to determine which categories are being used and allow the user to check off individual categories. Users are not required to transfer everything from their PalmPilot to their desktop software.
The ability to synchronize with multiple user accounts. For example, a husband and wife can each keep a copy of the others daily schedule on their PalmPilot.
Comprehensive support for all Palm repeating event types. A repeating event is never split into multiple individual events.
Another exciting innovation offered by Personal & Group Organizer is the ability to synchronize a PalmPilot or Visor over the internet. This is a welcome feature for the traveling executive who wants to stay connected with the company database.
Group Organizer (the network version of Personal Organizer) is the first Mac client/server PIM to support native Open Transport networking. Users may access their calendar, contacts, memos and to-dos over an AppleTalk network or a TCP/IP networkincluding the Internet. Group Organizer makes it easy to collaborate with co-workers.
Both version of Organizer are available for US$49.99, or US$59.99 with a printed manual. You can find more information at the Chronos web site.
