SplashPhoto for Windows Powered Pocket PC
PC users can now organize and view their digital images
with the award winning SplashPhoto
SEATTLE (May 27, 2003) - - SplashData,
Inc., the leading developer of “virtual wallet” applications
for mobile devices, announces the launch of SplashPhoto for Microsoft
Windows Powered Pocket PC. SplashPhoto for Pocket PC is a conversion of
the company’s popular Palm OS title, recently named “Best
Image Viewer” by the editorial staff of Handheld Computing Magazine.
SplashPhoto offers a fast, easy-to-use
image viewer for Pocket PC PDAs, bringing the speed and simplicity that
has made SplashPhoto such a popular choice among users of Palm Powered
PDAs to the Pocket PC platform. SplashPhoto provides a host of options
for building and managing a library of photo images on Pocket PC devices,
with a simple user interface and a first-of-its-kind Windows desktop application
designed to make it easier than ever to crop, edit and install optimized
images for handheld display.
“For decades, people have been showing
off wallet-sized pictures of their kids in cheap, discolored vinyl pockets
that unfold accordion-style to ridiculous lengths,” said John Chaffee,
SplashData’s president. “SplashPhoto is a much better alternative,
providing the ability to store and present hundreds of photos in the crystal
clear display of a Pocket PC.”
SplashPhoto users can browse images stored on internal memory or external
memory cards in either list or thumbnail views and categorize them into
personalized groups. Images may be viewed individually or as part of a
SplashPhoto Desktop, the application’s
Windows companion, is used to crop and edit images to the proper resolution
for the Pocket PC display, and enables users to easily drag-and-drop images
or entire folders of images for uploading to the handheld. Images are
immediately uploaded to the handheld and organized into user-defined categories.
Offering copies of pictures to friends,
family members or colleagues has never been easier thanks to SplashPhoto’s
picture-sharing options. Users can choose to beam selected images to another
Pocket PC handheld device or Windows Desktop computer via infrared or
attach images to emails for Outlook distribution.
“SplashData offers an exciting, new Pocket PC application that highlights
the rich digital media experience enabled by the Windows Powered Pocket
PC platform," said Mark Spain, Director of the Mobile Devices Division
at Microsoft Corp. "Using SplashPhoto, the growing user base of digital
photographers are empowered to organize entire photo albums and create
personalized slideshows on their Pocket PC devices.”
SplashPhoto is available for a limited time at an introductory offer of
$9.95 -- 50% off the normal price of $19.95 at www.splashdata.com.
