DALLAS (July 18, 2006) - - BEIKS LLC, the world leader in language and reference
for mobile devices is proud to announce a new and eagerly awaited extension to its popular spelling
checker for Palm powered handhelds.
LexSpell 1.7 is the first spelling checker in the
Palm OS world to provide quality and easy proofing of emails composed in
GoodLink, the popular application which many believe to be the ultimate PIM
solution on the market.
Initially released in 2001, LexSpell was the first
spelling checker ever to provide proofing service to other Palm OS applications.
Although technically imperfect, as there was never an official standard for
proofing services on Palm OS as there is on other platforms, LexSpell became
widely popular due to its timely arrival and successful combination of
simplicity, quality and affordability. Its success had lead to the licensing of
its core, the LexLib proofing engine, to DataViz. DataViz, who makes the
platform's most popular office suite - Documents ToGo, has licensed LexLib for
use in the high-end version of Documents ToGo.
In the Palm OS world there is no adopted standard
for providing or utilizing proofing services. Certain vendors - like DataViz -
have equipped their applications with proprietary proofing solutions; other
vendors did not and users of VersaMail, SnapperMail, GoodLink email and many
others have felt the void and requested a solution.
is exactly where LexSpell and the later third party proofing solutions came into
play; relying on certain core operating system and application functionality,
they allow users to fetch, proof and place back text into a program that was not
designed to do so by itself. Utilizing the most of the Palm OS extensibility,
LexSpell would allow user to proof a text without leaving the active application
- be it an email, word processing or whatever else - and as easily as tapping an
icon on the command toolbar or pressing a special button combination (on a
device like the Treo).
Complex and secure applications like GoodLink
email have challenged and will continue to challenge the practical application
of this useful approach of extending the functionality beyond the originally
designed. And it is especially because of that, as well as the multiple requests
that BEIKS has received from its loyal customer base, that we are so happy to
announce that LexSpell 1.7 provides out-of-the-box operability within GoodLink!
