Bachmann Software has released FilePoint 3.0 for Palm OS handhelds. This file management application update adds the ability to access files on shared network drives, allowing users to browse and copy files to handheld RAM or expansion cards.
Corporate handheld users can copy a Microsoft Word file to their device, make changes using their favorite handheld word processing application, and copy the file back to a network drive. Documents To Go users can use the “Save As” functionality included within the application to send changed files directly back to the network.
FilePoint also allows MP3 and other files to be copied directly to memory expansion cards. Devices with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth networking abilities can now access shared network drives without physically connecting their Palm OS Handheld to a desktop computer.
No special client has to be installed on the desktop PC. FilePoint uses the native Windows networking protocol that is built into Windows 2000, XP, NT, and 98.
“FilePoint 3.0 is a major step forward towards integrating handhelds into the office and home-based networks we use every day,” said Glenn Bachmann, president and founder of Bachmann Software. “With our FilePoint and PrintBoy networking features, we are providing cost effective ways to instantly upgrade Palm Powered handhelds to levels of functionality normally associated with expensive laptop computers.”
FilePoint 3.0 is $29.95. For more information, a free trial download, or online purchase, visit the Bachmann Software web site.
