Coola a company that specializes in mobile information management and two-way transference of content between the World Wide Web and handheld devices, today launched Coola support for the Mac.
Sudha Jamthe, Coola CEO, said this will enable Mac users to send and receive any information or document to handheld devices from Macs. Coola’s 1-Click technology empowers mobile professionals to carry and read news articles, financial reports, medical and legal references, price lists, resumes or any other data or document on their wireless and non-wireless handheld devices wherever they go, she added.
As for Web site developers, Coola allows you to “Palm enable” a site in under five minutes, Jamthe said. And small Web site owners can create “coolets” for free.
User tools include “Coola Signature,” which lets you create and share your contact information and “Create Coolets,” which lets you create events, memos, addresses, and documents and put them on your Palm OS handheld in one click.
“After unveiling the popular iMac and G4, the Macintosh community has grown tremendously,” Jamthe said in a press announcement. “Coola recognized the need for bringing Mac users in the Palm and handheld domain the same access to Coola that Windows users have enjoyed Mac users can now use Coola technology to take any Web-based content to their handheld devices from any Mac computer.”
The company also announced that Robert Tsuk, which Coola describes as “one of the nation’s expert Macintosh programmers,” has joined them as principal mobile engineer. Jamthe said the addition of Mr. Tsuk to Coola team is a real coup for Coola.
“Rob is one of the top Macintosh programmers in the country,” she added. “He developed a HotSync Conduit to synchronize FileMaker Pro with a database package on the Palm called Jfile. This conduit was awarded a 4 1/2 mouse rating from MacWorld Magazine, and is just one of a number of programs Rob has developed for the Mac.”
Mac users can download the Coola conduit installer from
Coola’s Web site.
“Once the one-time Coola conduit installation is complete, Mac users can add or transfer events, documents and other files to their Palm and handheld devices using Coola,” Jamthe said.
