‘Better Measure’ 1.01 Becomes First Application to Pass Pocket PC Logo Test
Better Measure 1.01 for the Pocket PC has become the first application submitted through Handango to pass the recently announced “Designed for Windows for Pocket PC Logo Certification Test” . As one of the first mobile device applications in the market to support the new Microsoft logo, Better Measure will be easily identifiable as a Pocket PC application that customers can use and buy with confidence.
Mt. Albert, ON – June. 27, 2002 -- Visual Byte is pleased to announce that we have received notification this week from VeriTest that our Pocket PC application “Better Measure” has successfully completed and passed the tests for the “Designed for Windows for Pocket PC Logo”. This new certification program is part of Microsoft’s recently announced Mobile2Market initiative. Mobile2Market is designed to supply ISVs and mobile operators with a streamlined infrastructure for the certification of compelling and reliable mobile applications.
Better Measure was actually the very first Pocket PC application to be submitted to and have certification managed by Handango who is a partner with Microsoft and VeriTest in the Mobile2Market program and is one of the leading online resellers of Pocket PC software.

"With more than 18,000 applications available from Handango, certification helps customers identify quality software," said Clint Patterson, vice president of product marketing for Handango. "We're glad to be working with Microsoft to promote the benefits of certification to our more than 8,000 Handango Software Partners and bring additional exposure to great, certified apps like Visual Byte's Better Measure."

Just recently released, Better Measure is the first product in the Visual Byte Pocket PC product line to undergo this kind of third party testing and evaluation. Other Pocket PC products from Visual Byte include a wide variety of tools and applications for personal and business use by both end users and developers. You can expect to see other Pocket PC and eventually Smart Phone applications from Visual Byte carrying this logo in the coming months as we enhance existing applications and release new yet to be announced products.

Better Measure is available for $ 19.99 directly from Visual Byte’s web site at: Corporations interested in multi-user licenses, volume discounts or branding and customization should contact Visual Byte directly.
