Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 19, 2006
PalmGear and Motricity, the leading global provider of mobile content services and solutions, has entered into a partnership with VoiceIt Technologies to exclusively feature and market the Power by VoiceIt Technologies applications. PalmGear will work closely with the PalmOS developer community to provide customers with an enhanced experience and broad content catalog using the VoiceLib SDK to voice enable applications for Palm OS enabled Treo smartphones at PalmGear.com.
The Voice-Enabled Software tab located on PalmGear’s home page menu bar (http://promo.palmgear.com/voiceit/) featuring applications developed with the Powered By VoiceIt VoiceLib SDK is a valuable go-to-market channel available to any third party application developer who has developed an application for Palm’s Treo smartphones. Utilizing VoiceIt Technologies’ VoiceLib SDK 1.2 for PalmOSTM, software developers and publishers can integrate the award winning Voice Recognition Engine with their applications with all PalmOSTM Powered devices running PalmOS 5.2 with audio recording support.
Initial titles include Voice Bible With You by GMPSoft, Initiate by Hobbyist Software and 2Dial by ShSh Software in addition to VoiceIt Technologies’ best sellers VoiceNavIt, VoiceDialIt and VoiceSecureIt. Upcoming voice enabled applications available for Palm OS-based smartphones will vary from travel, utilities, business and personal productivity to games and entertainment.
"We selected PalmGear and Motricity because of its ability to provide a complete platform, with a proven consumer base and the necessary marketing and sales resources to support the rapidly growing voice enabled content market," said Noel Grover, President of VoiceIt Technologies. "We felt that PalmGear’s partnership will accelerate the adoption of voice command and control functionality with an assortment of 3rd party add-on software titles designed to extend the abilities of their Palm Treo 650.”
In addition, PalmGear is working closely with their roster of thousands of registered developers in support of porting their best-of-class applications with the VoiceLib SDK to increase sales and ultimately enhance the customer's experience with the Treo smartphone and other OS platforms such as Windows Mobile and Symbian.
Developers who plan to sell their voice enabled applications on the PalmGear software store website should visit the Developers section of PalmGear.com to download the latest VoiceLib SDK and learn more about creating applications for the Powered By VoiceIt Palm OS platform.
"Addition of voice enabled content is a great way to help customers get the most out of their mobile devices and for developers extend their sales capacity with the robust sales of Palm’s Treo smartphones," said Teddy Kavadas, manager of Business Development, Motricity. "We are honored to be VoiceIt Technologies’ choice for featuring its Powered By VoiceIt applications and are excited to offer PalmGear customers a broad range of software choices for their mobile experience."
