Seattle - - March 1, 2004 - - In conjunction with the second anniversary of the Microsoft Mobility Partner Advisory Council (MPAC), SplashData, Inc., the leading developer of “virtual wallet” applications for mobile devices, announced its participation in the council. Microsoft Corp. formed the council in an effort to work more collaboratively with companies who are investing heavily in mobility.
In September 2003, SplashData announced the launch of SplashPhoto 4.0 for Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs. SplashPhoto, originally developed for Palm OS® and recently ported to Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC devices, is the first image viewer to enable Windows Mobile users to manage and synchronize their image libraries with a desktop PC. The company is working steadily toward offering the other members of the SplashWallet suite, including SplashID secure personal identification organizer, SplashMoney personal finance manager, and SplashShopper shopping list application, on the Windows Mobile platform.
“MPAC provides us with the opportunity to seek input and guidance from the top mobile application developers in the industry,” said Julie Wymetalek, manager of the MPAC program at Microsoft. “We are pleased to have SplashData as a part of the council as an innovator in the mobile computing industry.”
“We are excited to join MPAC and work with peers in the development community to share our expertise and yield an even better Windows Mobile experience for our customers,” said John Chaffee, president of SplashData, Inc. “We have found that SplashPhoto really shines on the rich digital experience offered by Windows Mobile devices and we are looking forward to getting an advanced look at future capabilities of the platform.”
