  1. Google Gears Enables Zoho Writer to Offer Offline Documents to Windows Mobile Device Users

    PLEASANTON, Calif. — March 4, 2008 — Zoho today announced that Zoho Writer supports both online and offline access from Internet Explorer Mobile (IE Mobile), the Microsoft browser for mobile devices running its Windows Mobile operating system. Zoho support for the open source Google Gears means its customers can work with their Zoho Writer documents from Window Mobile devices, regardless of network availability.

    “Mobile phones are a road warrior's best friend when working away from the office,” said Raju Vegesna, Zoho evangelist. “This is the primary reason why mobile support continues to be a top priority for Zoho. Today's news announcing Google Gears on mobile devices will help us offer online and offline access to mobile applications going forward.”

    With Zoho Writer running on IE Mobile, Zoho expands the mobility of Zoho applications beyond the iPhone, which the company supports through iZoho. Like iZoho, the applications available under IE Mobile will eventually grow to include other Zoho applications.

    Today, Zoho users running IE Mobile will have read-only access to their Zoho Writer documents, in both online and offline modes. Going forward, Zoho will make read/write functionality available both online and offline.
