Dave’s Ipaq – CalliGrapher 8.0 beta available @ Dave’s iPAQ

PhatWare is pleased to announce the avalilability of CalliGrapher 8.0 beta, the next generation of the company’s award-winning handwriting recognition software for Pocket PCs. CalliGrapher 8.0 is available immediately to consumers for Beta testing, and PhatWare welcomes user participation and feedback.

CalliGrapher 8.0 supports the new Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 software platform, which Microsoft released earlier this year. CalliGrapher 8.0 includes two input methods: “Write Pad,” a new method of entering handwritten data, and existing “Write Anywhere.” Write Pad is a specified “writing pad” area at the bottom of the screen where users can enter handwritten information that will be instantly recognized and converted to the digital text. Write Pad gives users an option other than CalliGrapher’s current “Write Anywhere” feature that allows users to enter handwritten information anywhere on the screen. Users can now choose to enter data either on the entire screen with Write Anywhere or in a designated area with Write Pad.

Additional feature improvements include improved handwriting recognition, attachable and floating keyboard, extended CalliGrapher toolbar and Write Pad that occupies the entire width of the screen in landscape mode, new color picker to select ink and pad colors, and much more.

A complete list of new features and information on participating in the beta program can be found on the CalliGrapher 8.0 Beta Web Site HERE
