Docs To Go Pro Gets Improved Synchronization

DataViz, Inc. has announced that it has made several improvements to Documents To Go Professional Edition. They have added DocSync to the Windows versions, which allows users to make changes on their handhelds without losing the desktop document's original formatting after synchronization. Formatting attributes, including fonts, graphics and charts remain intact within the original document, and changes made on the handheld file are integrated into the desktop document.

Additional improvements include a new formatting bar and full keyboard support. The formatting bar, located in the top of the Word To Go window on the handheld, includes bold, italic and underline options, as well as right, left and center justifications. Users with portable keyboards such as the Stowaway keyboard will be able to utilize the shortcuts for actions like formatting text as bold, italic, and underline, as well as selecting text.

“Handheld users are looking to save time and increase productivity, quickly and easily. It makes sense to develop a product that aims to achieve just this,” said Scott Thomas, palmtop product manager for DataViz. “DocSync lets users update their files without having to think twice about it, while the formatting bar and full keyboard support provide shortcuts for commonly used formatting features, making the product even easier to use.”

DocSync is included in Windows versions of Documents To Go Professional Edition. The new formatting bar and keyboard support are available in both Windows and Macintosh versions. In addition, these enhancements are offered as a free update to all registered users of Documents To Go Professional Edition. This includes users who recieved Documents to Go with their m500 series handhelds.

Documents To Go Professional Edition costs $50.

Dataviz's PDF to go just grabs the text.

Adobe's Acrobat Reader for Palm lets you see the full PDF as you see it in any other Acrobat Reader.

I've Beta tested the Acrobat Palm reader and it works quite well. It works better with Acrobat 4/5 documents, but it will work with older acrobat documents.


Big deal! It can't use SD/MMC!

See this thread for the latest m5xx "gotcha"!

(If the link is broken, copy & paste it in two parts into your browser. Sorry for pulling people out of PIC temporarily, but I'd rather have people speak for themselves. Less typing for me, too!)

Docs to Go is definately a MUST HAVE product. I'm glad Palm recongnized this and bundled it with the 500 series.

Too many "doc readers" with no clear winner when it comes to converting/viewing Word, HTML, etc with pics/images.

Have I missed something in Doc to Go? Is there a better alternative?

Doc's is still weak.

I found quicksheets to be much more comprehensive. Especially with excel and performing simple automated addition.

Quickoffice is gaining

It looks like dataviz is trying to beef up there program in seeing the recent trends in people choosing Qoffice over Dtogo. I see pluses & minuses to both, but I use Qoffice at the moment.

They both need to incorporate more formatting until either has a great product.

You are right, Quickoffice is better for Spreadsheets, Quicksheets with Quickcharts is the best program of this kind, but the Doc. part is very weak with almost no formatting options.
