SYWARE Announces FoneDB Expense Tracker, Free Expense Tracking Software for
Cambridge, MA (September 9, 2003)
today announced the immediate availability of FoneDB� Expense Tracker, a
FREE software application that allows tracking of personal or work expenses
using Smartphone devices. The application was developed using SYWARE’s
FoneDB, the first forms and database software for Microsoft® Windows®
FoneDB Expense Tracker provides individuals with the ability to track
expenses, such as food, travel, and lodging, then e-mail the information to
other Smartphone devices or to a desktop computer. Using check boxes,
dropdown lists, date categories, and notes, information can be entered with
a minimum of typing. A summary of expenses can be automatically e-mailed to
other phones or to a desktop computer. Using the associated ODBC driver,
FoneDB data can be easily imported into other applications such as Microsoft
Access, Excel, or Goldmine. Expense data can also be viewed and edited
directly on a desktop computer.
Creating Data-Driven Apps with FoneDB
FoneDB Expense Tracker is based on SYWARE’s FoneDB database development
software. With FoneDB, mobile operators, content publishers, and individuals
can quickly and easily create mobile databases for Smartphone devices, like
FoneDB Expense Tracker.
FoneDB applications are driven by forms that are designed on a desktop PC.
No programming is required as forms are built with a set of common controls.
Data can be formatted as text, integer, floating point, currency, date, or
time. Once created, each FoneDB form is a compact application that is able
to store and retrieve data.
In addition to FoneDB’s intuitive development environment, individual
applications developed with FoneDB do not have to be digitally signed before
they can be run on a Smartphone. This means that the costly and time
consuming task of securing a digital signature is not needed before a FoneDB
application can be deployed on a Smartphone.
