San Jose, CA (PressExposure) October 03, 2008 -- iambic, Inc., a leading provider of innovative productivity-enhancing software, today announced the availability of Agendus, its award-winning Personal Information Manager for the BlackBerry platform. Now, users of popular smartphone devices by Research in Motion (RIM) have access to a fully integrated solution for managing calendar, contact and task information that is easy to deploy, intuitive to use, and gets more done with fewer button taps.
A compelling attribute of Agendus for BlackBerry is its ability to work directly with the BlackBerry's native data storage out of the box, which means instant and seamless accessibility to PIM information no matter where it comes from (i.e. Exchange Server, Outlook, Google, etc.).
Also, Agendus smartly adapts itself to the established colors and themes in use by the BlackBerry for a truly seamless experience.
"There are a variety of parallels between what Research in Motion has set out to do with the BlackBerry and what weâve done from the start with our productivity enhancing solutions," said Adriano Chiaretta, chief operating officer of iambic, Inc. "This is a huge milestone for iambic and we look forward to playing a significant role in helping BlackBerry users experience the thrill of getting more accomplished in a way that is intuitive, efficient and fun. Thatâs the Agendus Way!."
One of the features that made Agendus popular on the Palm OS and Windows Mobile platforms is the flexibility it offers users in how information is displayed. The BlackBerry version of Agendus includes an at-a-glance view of the day ahead that shows meetings, tasks, recent messages and calls, and over-the-air (OTA) information such as Weather and Quote of the Day. There are also views for one day, a week (list and grid mode), a month (expanded), as well as views for tasks and contact information (list and expanded).
Transferring information between the desktop PIM solution and Agendus for BlackBerry is easily accomplished via the synchronization set-up currently in use. Furthermore, the BlackBerry version of Agendus works seamlessly with the Agendus for Windows Outlook add-on, which enhances how the calendar, contacts, tasks and memos are viewed (and used) on a desktop computer.

When purchased at the same time as the Windows desktop version of Agendus, the price is $39.95 (a $20 savings). Details are available at [http://www.iambic.com/agendus/blackberry/].
