Update Coming Soon

Now that the iPhone release has become reality, we're working on an update to, our web app for the desktop and mobile devices. We were informed by very helpful users that Internet Explorer 8 had broken some of the input features, so we've made some modifications and are happy to report we are now in testing for the upcoming release.

In addition, we've added Portuguese to the language options (just click on the Brazilian or Portuguese flags in Settings). Thanks to user L.C. from Brazil for taking the time to provide the translation for us. The availability of the update will be announced on our blog and our twitter feed.

We have also been checking the mobile version, originally designed to fit on the iPhone, for function on other mobile platforms. While the screen size needs a bit of tweaking (which we hope to address in the future), the current mobile version works great on Blackberry, Android, Palm Pre, and Nokia smartphones. If you've switched to one of those platforms, please give it a try.

You can use in your desktop browser or mobile browser.

DateWheel for iPhone
Date Wheel on iPhone
available on AppStore
New Release

Creative Algorithms' is pleased to announce the release of Date Wheel on the AppStore, for iPhone and iPod Touch. Date Wheel has a new look, but keeps the same function that you know and love on the Palm OS platform. The implementation for iPhone brings the best of Palm OS - minimal taps - coupled with new iPhone functions, like quickly flicking through saved calcs. We've worked hard to keep Date Wheel as the date calculator with the best user interface available.

Date Wheel calculates time between two dates in days, weeks, business days, and months. You can also set up a countdown to an important date, determine if a project is overdue, or track how long a task is taking. The unique user interface automatically updates the oldest field, with locks available to keep one field constant. Save calcs for future reference. Easily figure out the time between two dates with Date Wheel!

Take a look at some additional screenshots on our website and visit the AppStore to purchase Date Wheel for iPhone. If you decide to buy, also please leave a review. We would greatly appreciate it and love getting customer feedback!

Please Update your Newsletter Preferences

We realize that many of you may have moved onto new mobile software platforms, with the disappointing news of Palm's plans for no new hardware for Palm OS and as your old Palm devices wear out. We would like to maintain communication with you as we move on to new platforms ourselves, so we may inform you of your old favorites being 'ported. We are a small software house, so we cannot possibly 'port all at once, but we are slowly chipping away at it.

In the meantime, we would appreciate if you would indicate for which platforms you would like to receive news. Knowing what platforms our customers are migrating to also helps us plan our product roadmaps. We appreciate your feedback, as always. Thanks in advance!
