I am a big fan of the Pocket Genealogist, a program that allows you to carry your complete genealogy database, including text notes and citations, in your handheld Windows Mobile computer. You can find my past articles about this program at http://tinyurl.com/2lgmqj. Now Northern Hills Software has released a new version that includes several new updates, including support for the new "Smartphones ." Here is the announcement:
El Dorado Springs, MO - Northern Hills Software is pleased to announce the release of Pocket Genealogist Version 3.10.
In a nutshell, this version includes usability changes, new screen sizes for Windows Mobile 6, and support for Smartphones (Windows Mobile devices without a touchscreen - called Windows Mobile Standard with Version 6.)
"We're especially excited about the Smartphone support since those devices make up a significant portion of the current handheld device market," said Laura Phillips, vice president and business manager for Northern Hills Software. "We've supported the Windows Mobile Phone Edition since it first came out, but the old Smartphones with no touchscreen just weren't suitable for a sophisticated application like Pocket Genealogist. However, with the tremendous improvements we've seen recently in Smartphone screens and navigation, we're finally comfortable making the transition."
This release also includes better support for the use of Pocket PCs without a stylus, better Windows Mobile 6 support, and many other improvements. It is a free upgrade for users who previously purchased Pocket Genealogist 3.x.
