TextMaker: Desktop-Class Word Processing on Your Pocket PC

In an ideal world, you could create a Microsoft Word document on your desktop computer, put it on your Pocket PC, edit and format it on the road, and then send it back to the office as a .DOC file, with content and all formatting still intact.

This is what Pocket PC users expect from their mobile computers.

Unfortunately, this is not how it works right now. Pocket Word, the "word processor" shipping with all Pocket PCs, is perhaps the biggest disappointment for mobile users: No headers or footers. No tables. No outliner. No on-the-fly spell-checking. Severely limited text formatting. Image support? Barely existent.

What about document conversion then? As soon as you move a .DOC file to your mobile device, all features that Pocket Word cannot process are stripped and thrown away. Basically, just the body text in bold, italic, and underline survives, but not much else.

Now there is an alternative: TextMaker for Pocket PCs - the first and only complete word processor for Pocket PCs. Multi-language spell-checker? Graphics? Footnotes? No problem. Tables? Sophisticated character and paragraph formatting? Glossary? At your fingertips. Lossless conversion of Microsoft Word .DOC files? Right on your Pocket PC.

TextMaker for Pocket PCs is the most comprehensive word processor ever developed for Windows CE.

Imagine that: Desktop-class word processing on your Pocket PC!

Also includes a free copy of TextMaker for Windows, the desktop companion, giving you Word-compatible word processing on your Windows PC as well.

What The Media Says About TextMaker

  • infosync.no: "TextMaker is a true wonder of a program. In its efficient use of space (both storage and screen) and equally efficient programming, it stretches the limited platform of the Pocket PC to new limits. In sheer power alone it happily leaves its rivals in the dust: in fact, I’d go so far as to say that this is the most important PPC program now available for almost any mobile professional."

  • PDA Essentials: "TextMaker is the most feature-packed word processor to be developed for the Pocket PC platform and it has all the features that you would expect to find on a high-end PC word processor (and a few more besides)."

  • Brighthand.com: "Leaves Pocket Word in the dust"

  • Pocket PC Life: "This product is a must have for anyone who wants a real word processor and addresses one of the few weak points in the Pocket PC world."

  • PocketAnywhere.com: "Worth every penny."

  • PPCW.net: "It’s amazing, really amazing and I’m completely amazed."

  • PPCSG.com: "Arguably the best Pocket PC word program. I would recommend it to anyone. It qualifies as a must-buy for 2003."
