SplashData Launches SplashPhoto for Windows Powered Pocket PC

Pocket 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 slide show.

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.
