Quickword 5.0 is
a text document editor and reader application that allows users
to work with text and Microsoft Word documents on their Palm
organizers. Quickword enables mobile professionals to create,
read and edit documents on their handheld devices. While Quickword
has become among the most popular document readers/editors for

in their Palm devices, they haven't always been able to produce
hard copies when needed," said Glenn Bachmann, president of

sales quotes, product information, or anything else they may
need, precisely when they need it."
"Quickword has empowered

allows users to work with text documents on their Palm organizers.
Quickword has its own easy-to-use document converter that works
seamlessly with desktop PCs to enable users to create, read
and edit documents on their handheld device. This feature sets
the application apart from most text editors, which require
a third-party converter for synchronizing Word files with a
Palm device. Other features of Quickword include Find and Replace,
Auto-Scrolling, and Cut and Paste. Additionally, Quickword offers
full compatibility and unmatched performance with the Stowaway
keyboard offered for Handspring and Palm devices, as well as
the GoType! keyboard from LandWare.
PrintBoy Documents is the first stand-alone commercial
software product to allow users to print documents directly
from their handheld computers. Working with any document converted
to the standard "doc" format, PrintBoy Documents effectively
supports printing of text, html, Word, RTF and PDF files.
