PlanMaker for Pocket PC in beta stage
SoftMaker has made a beta version of its spreadsheet software for Pocket PC available for download. The beta is free, but expires on 1 May 2004. The company promissed to have a new beta version released before this date.

PlanMaker offers the feature set and ease-of-use of a modern high-end spreadsheet application - not only under Windows, but also on Pocket PCs, Windows CE-based Handheld PCs, and Linux. This means that PlanMaker is the only spreadsheet worldwide that is available for four different popular operating systems and offers the same feature set on all of them.

One of the major design goals in PlanMaker's development was the seamless conversion of Microsoft Excel files. PlanMaker reads and writes any file from Microsoft Excel 5.0, 95, 97, 2000, Excel XP, and Excel 2003, and renders all of them faithfully.

PlanMaker not only offers a vast collection of more than 320 calculation functions - including support for complex numbers, statistics, financial maths, and data analysis - but also enables the user to create attractive presentations by providing a fully Excel-compatible AutoShapes drawing engine (on all platforms, even Linux and Pocket PCs!) and a fully Microsoft Excel-compatible charting module that offers 70 different chart types in 2D and 3D - color gradients, fill patterns, and trend lines included.

  • More than 320 calculation functions, covering maths, financial mathematics, date and time calculations, data analysis etc.
  • Supports complex numbers, matrix (array) calculations and a vast range of statistics functions
  • Authentic conversion (back and forth) of Microsoft Excel files (Excel 5.0, 95, 97, 2000, XP, 2003, and Excel for Apple Macintosh)
  • Powerful charting engine that renders high-quality charts in 2D and 3D (70 different chart types)
  • AutoShapes-compatible drawing directly in your worksheets (drawing, designing, flow-charting, magic connectors etc.)
  • AutoFormat, hierarchical cell and character styles, conditional formatting
  • Data grouping (outliner)
  • Spell-checking in 16 languages
