Wellington, FL, United States, 2006/03/09 - Latest version of HanDBase features a new Mac Desktop component; refinements aimed specifically toward Treo 600, 650 and 700w users; and more..
DDH Software, Inc. is introducing a new version of its HanDBase relational database application for Palm OS, Pocket PC/Windows Mobile, Windows Mobile Smartphone and Symbian S60 (formerly "Series 60") devices. The new version comes as the company is reaching another significant milestone: 150,000 licensed HanDBase users.
DDH Software has added many new features for the various mobile platforms supported by HanDBase, including Palm OS, Windows Mobile (formerly "Pocket PC"), Windows Mobile Smartphone, and Symbian S60-based smartphones and handhelds. Regardless of platform choice, users will enjoy some new capabilities with the HanDBase Desktop component. To begin with, the company has introduced an all-new Mac version of HanDBase Desktop, providing Mac OS X users with the ability to make changes to databases from the convenience of their desktop.
For the first time, HanDBase for Pocket PC/Windows Mobile and Windows Desktop have been designed to enable databases to be placed into categories and retrieved through a drop-down list. This interface provides users with a familiar means of accessing and cataloging database files and setting properties for each database they create.
Updates to the mobile Palm OS version of HanDBase include:
* One-handed navigation support for Treo 600 and 650 smartphones;
* Five-way navigation support;
* Improved formatting options for the HanDBase Forms Designer via a "snap to grid" feature;
* Support for the latest high-resolution screens, 320 x 480, even in custom designed forms.
The new Pocket PC/Windows Mobile version of HanDBase includes:
* Category support;
* Support for Windows Mobile 5;
* An Auto-Save option;
* Landscape/VGA device support;
* Compatibility with the new Treo 700w and other square-screen devices.
Windows Mobile Smartphone and Symbian S60 users can enjoy enhanced versions of HanDBase as well, with features like T9 support on the S60 platform, and QVGA phone support on new and upcoming Windows Mobile Smartphones.
"HanDBase is the most flexible and inventive program available for handhelds-whether used for business or personal purposes," said David Haupert, president of DDH Software. "It is always amazing to see the ingenious uses of HanDBase as ordinary users create their own applications. The latest version will help our ever-growing customer base unleash their creativity and build databases that enable them to better collect and share information."
Since first introduced in 1998, HanDBase has enabled owners of Palm OS, Pocket PC/Windows Mobile-based PDAs, and most recently Symbian S60 and Windows Mobile Smartphone handsets, to take their most vital information with them while on-the-go, earning prestigious recognition such as Handheld Computing Magazine's "Database of the Year" award along the way. HanDBase allows mobile device users to store volumes of data that can be easily viewed, edited, filtered, sorted, and searched whenever needed.
Users can design their own databases from scratch or start from any of the thousands of free applets available at ddhsoftware.com--which have been created and submitted by HanDBase users.
HanDBase is available at the company's Web site, DDHSoftware.com, or through Handango.com, Palmgear.com and Smartphone.net in various versions based on the type of data synchronization needed. Prices range from $24.99 to $99.99.
