ThinkFree Inc. on Tuesday announced the initial beta release of ThinkFree Office 3 Show, iPod Edition. The software enables iPod users (and users of other compatible music players) to create, edit and transport PowerPoint presentations, even if they don’t use Microsoft Office.
ThinkFree Office 3 Show, iPod Edition comes with more than 130 PowerPoint-compatible drawings and “AutoShapes,” 17 animation effects and 40 transitions. It can save files in HTML, PDF or Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) formats, and can load presentations onto a Mac or Windows PC connected to an iPod.
In addition to iPods, other multimedia-compatible digital music players are also supported. The software requires 100MB available space on the music player, Mac OS X v10.3 or later (or Windows XP or 2000), and more than 256MB RAM. While it’s in beta now, the software will ship to retailers in August for US$39.95.
