MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA and AUSTIN, TX — PhatWare Corporation, a leading provider of software products and professional services for mobile and desktop computers, and Web Information Solutions (WebIS), maker of fine commercial software for the innovative market, today announced that PhatWare’s PhatNotes Lite Edition — a $19.95 value — is available for free download with Pocket Informant 5.2, the latest version of WebIS’ number one Personal Information Manager (PIM) for Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs.
Pocket Informant is the most fully featured, easy-to-use contact/calendar/task software available for Windows-powered Pocket PCs. Enjoyed by over 100,000 Pocket PC owners worldwide, Pocket Informant gives users the ability to view, customize, and manage data according to their unique needs and preferences.
Now, with the inclusion of PhatNotes Lite, Pocket Informant users can also instantly add, store, or retrieve text-based notes without leaving the application. PhatNotes, winner of Pocket PC Magazine’s ‘Best Application Award’ in the Notes category for the last three straight years, also allows users to organize notes by category, subject, creation, and modification date.
“PhatNotes is totally intuitive and a snap to use, which makes it a perfect enhancement for Pocket Informant,” said Alex Kac, president of Web Information Solutions. “Many of our Pocket Informant users have been requesting a more powerful notes capability. By making PhatNotes Lite Edition available with Pocket Informant, we now can offer our customers a handy, feature-rich solution for all their note taking needs.”

The product’s features, including Contact pictures, fully customizable color schemes, mini-text month views, zoomable month views, and task view extreme, are quickly accessible to keep up with the user’s busy pace. Pocket Informant and PhatNotes also both support Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition, including devices with VGA/Landscape screen capabilities.
