While SplashData has long been known for organizing important records - such as passwords, photos, checking account transactions, and shopping lists - with its popular SplashWallet suite for mobile devices, the company has now set its sights much higher: your thoughts. With its new SplashNotes, announced today, SplashData offers a software tool aimed at helping people outline and organize everything from work projects, meeting agendas and speeches to class notes and event plans.
SplashNotes is a powerful note taker, list manager, outliner and information organizer for Palm handhelds and smartphones, including Treo, Zire and Tungsten models. It comes with companion Windows software that enables users to enter their notes on a desktop computer and then synchronize the notes with a Palm handheld to take with them wherever they go.
"There are so many practical uses for SplashNotes, both personal and professional," said Morgan Slain, SplashData's CEO. "Businesspeople can use it for meetings, projects, and collaboration among teams. Teachers can use it for lesson planning, and students can use it to take notes. Pastors can use it to prepare sermons. Little League coaches can use it to plan for practice and record the progress of their players."
"SplashNotes is already one of my must-have applications on both my laptop and Treo," said Mark Nemens, a San Jose-based real estate developer. "I use it for taking notes in meetings, tracking prospective deals, helping manage my properties, and on and on. Its usability really is only limited by your imagination."
Key features of SplashNotes include:
* A drag-and-drop interface that makes it easy to organize your ideas into a cohesive plan * Automatic line-numbering, alphabetizing and bullet points * Sharing of outlines by email, infrared beaming or WiFi * Attachments of sketches and pictures * The ability to save commonly used outlines as templates, making it easy to begin a new note without starting from scratch * Nearly unlimited "Undo" capabilities, making it simple to eliminate bad ideas and simple mistakes from an outline * Support for importing and exporting to Microsoft Word
