Bachmann Software Introduces Palm OS Based File Management for Memory Expansion Cards
FilePoint™ provides Palm Powered™ handheld users the ability to organize data on Secure Digital and MultiMedia expansion memory cards as well as on RAM
September 25, 2001
Bachmann Software today announces the launch of FilePoint™ 1.5, a file management application for Palm Powered handheld computers, extending FilePoint’s many organizational features to the data preserved on external Secure Digital (SD) and MultiMedia memory cards.
FilePoint, first introduced by Bachmann Software in August 2001, allows users to organize data in folders. Files created in many of the third-party applications for Palm OS® handhelds can be easily organized using FilePoint’s drag and drop feature. The ability to organize documents in folders, along with FilePoint’s browse and search features, allows users to quickly find data stored either in RAM or external memory cards. FilePoint also offers the ability to sort files, making it easy to decide which files or applications users may want to move to an expansion card to free up needed internal memory.
“Although external memory can supplement a device, the data remains segregated from the applications and data on RAM,” said Dan Reuvers, Bachmann Software’s vice president of business development. “FilePoint allows users to see and access all their data simultaneously, so the external memory card behaves as a true expansion of the internal memory.”
By building in support for both SD and Flash memory cards, FilePoint enhances the file management capabilities for users of both the Palm and Handspring line of handheld computers.
FilePoint version 1.5 retails for US$19.95 and is available on Bachmann Software’s Web site, www.bachmannsoftware.com, or any of the Web sites that sell Palm OS applications, such as PalmGear and Handango.
