NEW YORK, NEW YORK, March 26, 2007 -- Conduits Technologies, Inc. announced today the release of Timekeeper 2.1, Pocket Launcher 3.1 and Pocket Player
3.2 for Windows Mobile 6 Standard and Professional devices, and Pocket Slides 2.51 for Windows Mobile 6 Professional devices. Timekeeper, Pocket Launcher and Pocket Player also function on all Windows Mobile 5 Smartphone and Pocket PC devices, and previous 2003 models. Pocket Slides is compatible with Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC devices, and previous 2003 models.
POCKET PLAYER 3.2
Pocket Player 3.2 for Windows Mobile 6 Standard and Professional devices aims to satisfy consumers who demand more from a media player on a mobile device. Version 3.2 introduces new usability features and fixes, new plugins and plugin improvements.
Pocket Player 3.2 sports several new features to improve usability. Library speed and stability has improved. Various fixes with streaming, including password support, Orb.com support, and performance have been implemented.
The user can now select multiple files to open/enqueue easily. All known bugs and issues, such as those with 48KHz playback, bookmarking accuracy, phone interaction, and PlaysForSure playback have been resolved.
Pocket Player 3.2 introduces a voicemail plugin that enables integrated Inbox WAV attachment playback to the software. Many phone systems offer email-based voicemail delivery in the form of a WAV file attachment to a small message. Windows Mobile devices have the ability to receive these messages, but playback has traditionally been buggy and on most devices, will not play the messages properly. Pocket Player can play these WAV attachments, and the new "gen_voicemail" plugin adds a "Voicemail" item to the Pocket Player Browser. This plugin will scan all the messages in your Inbox (or other folders) for ones with a WAV attachment, displays the date and time received, the subject of the message (which usually includes the phone number that called the user), play the messages in random order, and can seek within the message. The plugin goes one step further by parsing the phone number out of the voicemail text, adding a "Call Number" command to the Pocket Player main menu. This gives the user a seamless experience with their voicemails and Pocket Player.
Plugins Updated: UPnP, WMHost
Pocket Player's UPnP plugin has been improved, and now supports additional UPnP servers such as Windows Media Player 11, Orb, and others. For users with a large quantity of media on their servers, the plugin now features paginated results. Device-to-device streaming is now a feature of the
plugin: over WiFi users can stream from Pocket Player to another device running Pocket Player or other UPnP-capable software.
The WMHost plugin has also been updated and improved. The plugin now boasts support for devices with external displays, such as the HTC StrTrk (Cingular 3125). Track information and playback controls now work on that device and similar configurations. Other system plugins that look for media players are also supported, such as the Samsung Media home screen plugin for the BlackJack. Media information and playback controls work properly. Finally, A2DP/AVRCP support is improved and updated, and Bluetooth buttons can now be mapped to fast forward or rewind functions.
Timekeeper 2.1 for Windows Mobile 6 Standard and Professional devices is a customizable high precision multi-function stopwatch with session tracking and data export capabilities.
Timekeeper 2.1 now features timers that keep counting after you exit the program. Once your set time is up, you will still be notified. In other words, set it and forget it! The new release also marks the ability to keep your device backlight on when still using the product.
POCKET LAUNCHER 3.1
Pocket Launcher 3.1 for Windows Mobile 6 Standard and Professional devices is a customizable application launcher that improves upon the device's built-in program launcher with a tab-based categorization system that is expandable to a user's needs, and adaptable to a user's tastes.
Pocket Launcher 3.1 now supports the popular BlackJack scroll wheel, allowing navigation through your icons one-by-one with the flick of your thumb.
New Tabbing Features
Pocket Launcher 3.1 will now update colors based on device's today theme. In other words, Pocket Launcher will always match whatever color scheme you have. Additionally, the new version allows for easier management of tab icons and backgrounds.
POCKET SLIDES 2.51
Pocket Slides 2.51 for Windows Mobile 6 Professional enables users to create, edit, view and give presentations on a mobile device.
Pocket Slides 2.51 sports a vastly improved German translation. All previous issues with the German version of Pocket Slides 2.X have been resolved.
Pocket Slides 2.51 is now fully PowerPoint 2007 compatible. You can now convert presentations created in all versions of PowerPoint, from 97 to 2007, edit them on the device, and convert back to your desktop. All known bugs related to the conversion process have been fixed for this release.
