Action Engine releases Action Info for Windows Mobile (Sprint)
Action Engine Corporation has announced that Action Info, the company’s first direct-to-consumer mobile applications pack, is certified to operate on Sprint Windows Mobile 2003 Smartphone and Pocket PC devices.

Sprint customers can download Action Info from the Sprint PCS Software Store or Geekzone Software Store (166623 Pocket PC and 167798 Smartphone versions). The service is available as a subscription and costs US$49.95 per year. A free 30-day trial of the application is available for a limited time.

Action Info offers wireless device owners a fast, personalized, and integrated experience with popular content and information from eBay, Amazon.com, FOX Sports, Microsoft MapPoint, AccuWeather.com, Associated Press News and Stocks, Restaurant Row.com, and Zap-2-It Movies. For example, customers can find a restaurant and movie time, get driving directions and email it all to friends in seconds.

The software is a suite of nine interconnected applications that learn and remember a user's favorite cities, restaurants, airports, and more, getting more personalized after each use. Users can go shopping on Amazon.com, check eBay bids, get scores on FOX Sports, locate restaurants on Restaurant Row.com, check movie times with Zap-2-It, get driving directions and maps using Microsoft MapPoint, track local news and manage stocks with Associated Press News and Stocks, and get local weather forecasts from AccuWeather.com. By working with content and applications on the device, Action Info offers one-touch integration with email, contacts, calendar, messaging, and more.

Users walk through the offline question-answer screens to create a search request, send it to the network, and explore the results. The browserless, client/server-based mobile application technology means users can enjoy doing more offline, as well as choosing from pre-populated drop down lists, instead of typing on a tiny keypad.

Action Info features an offline user interface for search request creation, touch data entry for reduced typing, and pre-populated drop-down pick lists and integration with device contacts to speed request creation.
