today announced the release of SplashMoney, a personal finance application for Palm OS-compatible PDAs. It’s a checkbook and credit card register that enables you to record transactions, track balances, balance statements and generate reports while you’re on the road. The first release is designed to synchronize with Windows-based financial software, but a Mac-compatible version is coming next month.
SplashData president John Chaffee says that SplashMoney is the first of several products from his company developed to turn your Palm PDA into a “virtual wallet.”
“From electronic checkbook and credit card registers to personal identification cards and shopping lists, SplashData is well positioned to be the leading provider of virtual wallet products and services,” said Chaffee.
SplashMoney is available for download from SplashData as a 30-day trial version — it costs US$19.95 to register. It’s compatible with all handhelds running Palm OS 3.1 or later. The version now synchs with Quicken and MS Money on Windows, but SplashData says to look for a version compatible with Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X in early May, which is right around the corner.
