Chapura, Inc. has released 168131 PocketMirror Professional 1.0 for Microsoft Windows Mobile. The company says this is the first software product to both add to the basic Microsoft Outlook PIM synchronization features of Microsoft ActiveSync and maximize the categorization capabilities in Pocket Outlook, which is built into Windows Mobile-based devices.
PocketMirror Professional offers owners of Windows Mobile-based devices the ability to synchronize with multiple folders from Outlook Contacts, Calendar and Tasks, and organize and store this information in Pocket Outlook on the handheld, organized not only in ActiveSync-supported categories, but also in new folder-like categories, making it clear which Outlook folder the data came from on the PC.
Chapura's AnyFolder technology lets Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC owners pick and choose which Outlook Contacts, Calendar and Tasks folders to synchronize with their handheld, including any public and subfolders on a Microsoft Exchange Server.
Customers can also create folder-like categories in Pocket Outlook that PocketMirror Professional for Windows Mobile can use to create corresponding folders in Microsoft Outlook on the desktop. This advanced folder-like category synchronization dramatically improves effectiveness of using Windows Mobile-based devices with Outlook, offering enhanced mobile productivity.
The software maintains Outlook folders by creating a folder-like category, denoted with an asterisk, on the handheld for each desktop folder selected, keeping folder contents together and easily accessible on the mobile device.
PocketMirror Professional for Windows Mobile also provides two-way synchronization support for the Business Contacts folder in Outlook with the Microsoft Business Contact Manager, an integrated contact manager and sales contact solution that is relied on by many small to mid-size businesses.
This is the first synchronization software Chapura has produced for Windows Mobile users, though the company's flagship Palm OS synchronization product, PocketMirror Standard, has been shipped with over 20 million handhelds. PocketMirror Professional for Windows Mobile supports all devices available based on Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows CE.
