Notes From The Inside June 2003

The heat of the summer season is upon the Conduits Team, and we have so much new and exciting things to share with you!

News on Conduits:

Four Conduits products have been tested and certified under the "Designed for Windows for Pocket PC 2002 Logo Program":

  • Pocket Slides 1.72
  • Peacemaker Pro 1.2
  • Pocket Artist 2.6
  • Timekeeper 1.02

Logo certification means an application is a fully functional, stable product that adheres to Microsoft-specified design requirements.

Through logo certification, these products have also been incorporated into Microsoft's Mobile2Market catalog, a compendium of software for Pocket PC (and Smartphone) meeting these strict quality standards. Conduits is proud to be included.

News on Products:

You may have noticed some new product versions above. That's correct! We have recently released updates to both Timekeeper and Pocket Artist.

Timekeeper 1.02 now ensures that pre-set alarms will wake the device properly! In some circumstances with earlier versions (1.0 and 1.01), Timekeeper would not wake up the device when a timer would run out.

By popular request, Pocket Artist 2.6 now supports variable scaling and per-degree rotations for images, layers, or selections! No longer limited to 90-degree increments, you can now produce fine adjustments in your images with the new Numeric Rotate and Scale function.

Pocket Artist 2.6 also sports a newly redesigned document-centric interface (tap "OK" to save and close your work), as well as PNG loading support.

Looking Ahead...

In the month of June alone we have two more releases up our sleeves!

Pocket Launcher fans: we intend to make good on our Q2 2003 promise and ship Pocket Launcher 1.5 by June 30.

Pocket Player fans: your time has come! Pocket Player for Pocket PC 2002 devices will be launched this month as well. To whet your appetite in the meantime, here's an early screenshot:

What features will it support, you ask? There's not enough space here to list all them - you'll have to wait for the release! Not satisfied? How does "MP3, WMA, Ogg, Equalizer, Visualizations, Streaming, and dynamic Skins" sound?

Pocket Slides 1.8 should also be released in late June or early July, with even more VGA device support.

If you would like to see your ideas become part of these updates, please send an email to updates@conduits.com and I will forward them ASAP to the dev team.

And, as always, we welcome your comments. Want a new Pocket PC product? Want a specific product update? Speak up! Email updates@conduits.com and be heard!

All the best,

Carrie Hall
