This product will show at AppleExpo 2008 in Paris, 17th-20th September. The functions added to the ZeptoPad 1.5 are as follows:

New functions provided by ZeptoPad 1.5
Copy / paste of multiple figures and texts
Thanks to this newly added function, users will now be able to copy and paste multiple figures and texts using the editing tool.

Three display modes available.
Instead of the single display mode originally offered, ZeptoPad 1.5 will allow users to choose from a total of three different display modes: plain, ruler, and grid. An especially high level of demand had been expressed for the grid display function.

Zoom out function
After using the ZeptoPad special feature which allows the screen to be expanded and higher levels of detail in drawings, users will now be able to zoom out so as to quickly display entire drawings within a single screen.

Redo function
In addition to the undo function offered previously, ZeptoPad 1.5 will also include a redo function, providing users with a greater level of control to edit content.

Rotate / expand / shrink
In addition to the move function offered previously, ZeptoPad 1.5 will allow users to rotate, expand, and shrink imported images and the entire drawn area of text and figures.

Enhanced basic functions
- The maximum number of worksheets that can be saved has increased from 16 to 320.
- The maximum number of paths that can be drawn has increased from 96 to 256.
- The resolution of pasted images has been upgraded from 32×32 to 128×128.

Help page featuring multilingual support
In line with the global expansion of the App Store, the help page will be written in eight different languages. (Languages available: English, Japanese, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, and Portuguese)

About ZeptoPad
ZeptoPad allows users to write and draw on their iPhone with a freedom that rivals the experience of using a paper notebook. “Zepto” is a prefix in the International System of Units denoting 10 to the negative 21st power.Accordingly, this application was developed to allow users to sketch without limitations, expanding and shrinking worksheets as they see fit. While previous note-taking applications have always focused on memorization, the aim of ZeptoPad is to support the act of thinking.

Main functions of ZeptoPad

Text input
Users are able to record text data inputted via the keypad.

Handwritten note-taking
In order to create figures which would be difficult to construct using text alone, users can input data by handwriting on the touchscreen. Data with a much higher level of detail can therefore be recorded.

Directory
Using this function, users can bring up a list of the worksheets they have created.

Worksheet sharing (Shake&Share function)
To share a worksheet, users can either attach it as an image to an email and then send it, or transmit it to another ZeptoPad via Wi-Fi (using the Shake&Share function).

Note: A worksheet can be transmitted with the Shake&Share function when two iPhones (iPod touches) have ZeptoPad installed, are connected to the same Wi-Fi access point, and are then shaken up and down simultaneously.

10 Million Downloads from iPhone 3g App Store

July 12, 2008 by admin · Leave a Comment 

Apple today announced that iPhone™ and iPod touch users have already downloaded more than 10 million applications from its groundbreaking new App Store since its launch late last week. Developers have created a wide array of innovative mobile applications ranging from games to location-based social networking to medical applications to enterprise productivity tools. Users can wirelessly download applications directly onto their iPhone or iPod touch and start using them immediately. More than 800 native applications are now available on the App Store, with more than 200 offered for free and more than 90 percent priced at less than $10.

“The App Store is a grand slam, with a staggering 10 million applications downloaded in just three days,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Developers have created some extraordinary applications, and the App Store can wirelessly deliver them to every iPhone and iPod touch user instantly.”

Many of these amazing new applications take advantage of iPhone’s large display, Multi-Touch™ user interface, fast hardware-accelerated 3D graphics, built-in accelerometer and location-based technology to bring far more powerful applications to the mobile arena than ever before.

The App Store on iPhone works over cellular networks and Wi-Fi, which means it is accessible from just about anywhere, so users can purchase and download applications wirelessly and start using them instantly. Applications are free or charged to the user’s iTunes account and the App Store notifies the user when updates are available for their apps. The App Store is also available in iTunes (www.itunes.com) running on a Mac or PC, which syncs applications to the iPhone or iPod touch using a USB cable.
