Spb Software releases Spb Diary 1.5 for Pocket PC
Spb Software House has released a new version of 163904 Spb Diary (read our review). The program is an instant Pocket PC organizer that provides tab-based Today plug-in for calendar, contacts and tasks.

The new version 1.5 of Spb Diary also provides a separate tab for working with notes.

Notes is one of the natural parts of PIM data. Microsoft ActiveSync provides synchronization for notes between Microsoft Outlook on desktop PC side and Notes files on the Pocket PC side. Spb Diary provides access to main PIM data from the Today screen and with this new version you can use notes from your Today screen as well.

The new tab for working with notes provides access to the most frequently used operations in just one or two taps. The actions available include view the list of all notes grouped by folder; view a note on the Today screen; open a note for editing; create a new note in some folder; move a note to another folder; rename a note; sorting and grouping; fast searching.

Spb Software says that the Today screen is unique to Pocket PC devices. The "desktop" screen on a PC is designed to launch frequently used programs while the Today screen on Pocket PC provides access to frequently used data. This difference exists because of the differences between using Pocket PC and desktop PC devices.

A desktop PC is used for hours at a time while Pocket PCs are used several times for a few minutes only. When you pull your Pocket PC out of your pocket you usually want to see or enter some data. The Today screen was designed to be shown by default and to provide access to at least 80% of what users want to see when they turn the Pocket PC on.

Besides notes support the new version of Spb Diary offers another new feature: integration with 157838 Spb Weather. Usability testing has shown that it is really helpful to see the weather forecast for a given day on your calendar right near appointments scheduled for the same date. A typical scenario is to choose a date for a picnic or a walk right within Spb Diary, which now takes the weather forecast into account.

Spb Diary 1.5 is a free upgrade for registered Spb Diary users.
