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

will forward them ASAP to the dev team.
