Conduits Technologies, Inc. Releases Pocket Album 1.0 for Pocket PC.
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, November 6, 2000 -- Conduits Technologies, Inc.
announced today the release of Pocket Album 1.0 for Pocket PC. Pocket
Album is an interactive photo album application with easy-to-use
interface and album management for the Windows-powered Pocket PC.
Pocket Album offers a variety of features and two modes of play -
Album mode and SmartAlbum mode where each image can be centered or
full-screen. Album mode allows the user to create a personal photo
album with a collection of images currently on the device with the
ability to choose the order of the images. Also included are
decorative borders to frame and further personalize a picture adding
dynamic designs to images for pets, parties, weddings and vacations.
SmartAlbum mode will display and loop across all images the user has
on the device. SmartAlbum is leveraged by PhotoSync technology, which
continually pulls images from the desktop's image repository and
displays the pictures as they are "synced" down to the device, giving
the user a intelligent picture frame of the entire image collection.
Pocket Album allows the user to optionally rotate and scale the images
in real-time in order to guarantee perfect placement of the picture on
the device screen. There are different rotating and scaling options
for instances when the display is in full-screen mode of not, or if
the device is connected to the desktop (where rotation is generally
not needed) or in hand (where rotation is desired).
Pocket Album also features the implementation of voice and ink notes
to images. Voice notes gives the images a "talking picture" effect as
made popular by greeting cards. Ink notes allow the user to make
notations directly on an image. The ink notes feature parlays into
the usage of PowerPoint presentations that have been exported to the
device in a series of JPEGs. The user can easily set up a PowerPoint
"album," and have the collection of notes automatically pop up for
each slide. Pocket Album employs 14 different fades that give
complimentary visual feedback when transitioning between images.
Pocket Album 1.0 is available for $19.95 from http://www.conduits.com.
More information, including a full list of features, downloadable
border expansion packs, and screenshots, can be found at the Pocket
Album website at http://www.conduits.com/ce/album/.
Conduits develops several commercial applications for Pocket PC,
including Peacemaker (a cross-platform infrared exchange
utility), Pocket Artist (a drawing and image manipulation program
for Pocket PC) and Pocket Watch (an interactive world clock for
Pocket PC). Conduits also hosts several open source efforts,
such as Pocket Spark.

Steve, I'd love to see a review on this product vs. Image Expert CE by Sierra Imaging. I use the latter because it came free with my Jornada. I also bought the desktop version, which is a nice organizer and editor. But I would pay $20 for a better product.
