TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, March 19, 2001 -- Conduits Technologies Inc.
released Pocket Launcher 1.23 today for Pocket PC.
Pocket Launcher is a customizable application launcher.
On the Pocket PC, Pocket Launcher improves upon the built-in program
launcher with a tab-based categorization system that is
expandable to a user's needs, and customizable to a user's tastes.
Pocket Launcher integrates a collection of large, icon-based
lists of the applications that are installed on a device.
Icons represent their respective applications, and when tapped
once, the application is launched. The list of icon shortcuts and
categories is initially taken from the user's current layout of the
Start and Programs menus, and then copied to another place so
that Pocket Launcher can use the shortcut.
The tabs in Pocket Launcher represent categories for the
applications, such as "Games," "Music," "Utilities," etc.,
and are completely customizable. The user may add new tabs,
delete or rename old ones, and configure settings on a per-tab
basis. The lists for each tab may also have a background
image (such as a playing card for a "Games" tab) which are
provided by the user.
The updated version of Pocket Launcher now supports a
small icon view, in which up to thirty icons can be placed
on the screen at once. Other features include customizable
background colors, landscape mode support, and cleartype
integration on the tabs. Background images can now be
supplied in BMP, GIF, or JPEG formats.
Pocket Launcher optionally adds an icon to the taskbar that
conveys the battery life remaining. The icon also features
a sliding chart of storage and program memory usage that is
currently in effect on the device.
Pocket Launcher 1.23 is available as a commercial demo from
http://www.conduits.com/ce/, where the user can download and evaluate
it for 20 days. Pocket Launcher 1.23 is available for $9.95.
More information, including tutorials, example backgrounds,
and a full list of features, can be found at the Pocket Launcher
website at http://www.conduits.com/ce/launcher/.
Conduits develops several commercial applications for Pocket PC,
including Peacemaker (for infrared business card transfer to other
devices) and Pocket Artist (a drawing and manipulation program for
Pocket PC). Conduits also has many applications for Palm-size PC
and Handheld PC.
