Bachmann Software's FilePoint Pro, PrintBoy Anywhere and InfraReady Adapter All Now Available at The Palm Store

Palm, Inc. now offers utilities for Palm OS handhelds at its own Web site

SPARTA, NJ - October 21, 2002... Bachmann Software is pleased to announce that its FilePoint Pro and PrintBoy Anywhere applications, as well as its InfraReady Adapter, are all now available at Palm, Inc.'s (Nasdaq: PALM) Palm Store Web site (http://store.palm.com). Users of Palm OS® handheld computers can now find Bachmann Software's acclaimed utility software for printing and file management, and the device that made it easier than ever to wirelessly print handheld data to virtually any printer, at the Web site of the top producer of handheld computers in the world.

PrintBoy Anywhere allows Palm OS users to print their business-critical information by selecting their wireless method of choice, and sending their data to the printer. Whether the users work in an environment supporting a network, Bluetooth, 802.11b (also known as Wi-Fi), have modem access, or infrared, PrintBoy Anywhere allows them to produce their data to the printer of their choice.

FilePoint™ Pro is a versatile file management tool that allows Palm PoweredÔ device users to manage their data from their PCs. FilePoint Pro takes all the features of Bachmann Software's popular handheld version, FilePoint, and makes them available on the desktop as well. In short, FilePoint Pro enables users to organize their device's data on their desktop PCs, and all changes to the file organization will take place during synchronization with the handheld.

Bachmann Software's InfraReady Adapter is a pocket-sized device that enables users to convert any printer to accept infrared beaming of documents from handheld computers. Mobile workers can connect the adapter to the parallel port on any printer that does not already have infrared capabilities, and create IR printing access on the spot. The adapter can be used in conjunction with any PrintBoy application to produce hard copies of documents, spreadsheets, forms, sketches, etc. without the need to perform synchronization between a Palm OS handheld and a desktop PC.

"As handheld computers continue to infiltrate the workplace, and more and more are being used as portable computers rather than mere organizers, mobile professionals are realizing their need for the critical functions of printing and data organization in a familiar folder-tree format," said Glenn Bachmann, Bachmann Software's president and author of Palm Programming; The Authoritative Solution. "When these users begin looking for an enhancement to their device, the first place they often turn is The Palm Store, and we are thrilled to be among the solutions selected by Palm, Inc. for inclusion in their online store."
