SoftMaker’s TextMaker

I think I met the CEO (or another top person) of SoftMaker way back at Comdex 2003. He was a really friendly and intelligent person, and therefore I’ve been keeping half an eye on what SoftMaker has been up to ever since. Their flagship application, TextMaker, has supported OpenOffice’s file format for years, and ODF since its inception.

Now, TextMaker 2006 for PocketPC is here. The site claims “TextMaker 2006 for Pocket PCs has the same capabilities as TextMaker for Windows it is the only desktop-class word processor for Pocket PCs!”

Beating MS on its own platform, what a coup!

There’s also strong customer interest in developing a version for Mac OS X as evidenced in this forum thread on SoftMaker’s site.
