SoftMaker Office for Pocket PCs Publisher's Description

SoftMaker Office: The Only Desktop-Class Office Suite for Your Pocket PC

In an ideal world, you could create Microsoft Word and Excel documents on your desktop computer, put them on your Pocket PC, edit and format them on the road, and then send them back to the office in their original file formats, with content and all formatting still intact.

This is what Pocket PC users expect from their mobile computers.

Unfortunately, this is not how it works right now. Pocket Word, the "word processor" shipping with all Pocket PCs, is perhaps the biggest disappointment for mobile users: No headers or footers. No tables. No outliner. No on-the-fly spell-checking. Severely limited text formatting. Image support? Barely existent.

Pocket Excel, the miniature spreadsheet coming with your Pocket PC doesn't fare much better. It supports only a third of Excel's mathematical functions, cannot display even a simple pie chart, and doesn't handle most of Excel's capabilities.

What about document conversion then? As soon as you move a Word or Excel file to your mobile device, all features that Pocket Word and Pocket Excel cannot process are stripped and thrown away. Basically, just the bold and italic formatting and the simplest of Excel formulas survive, but not much else.

Now there is an alternative: SoftMaker Office for Pocket PCs – the first and only complete office suite for Pocket PCs.

Imagine that: A desktop-class office suite right on your Pocket PC – with lossless conversion of Word (.DOC) and Excel (.XLS) files!

What The Media Says About TextMaker and PlanMaker, the two applications in SoftMaker Office

  • infosync.no: "TextMaker is a true wonder of a program. In sheer power alone it happily leaves its rivals in the dust: in fact, I’d go so far as to say that this is the most important PPC program now available for almost any mobile professional."

  • Brighthand.com: "Leaves Pocket Word in the dust"

  • PPCW.net: "It’s amazing, really amazing and I’m completely amazed."

  • Palmtop User Magazine: "PlanMaker is exactly what power users have been waiting for, and, for those who rely heavily on their spreadsheets, may even be enough to make them switch platforms from Palm OS or Symbian devices, where such spreadsheeting power simply doesn't exist."

  • PocketNow.com: "If you do serious number crunching and would like to take it with you, then PlanMaker is a must-buy."
