Just in time for summer holidays, but not only for vacation, Spb Software House announced the release of Spb Traveler, a must have tool set for travelers. Nowadays mobile devices are powerful minicomputers that assist users in many ways. Traveling is definitely a field where a user can get maximum of his Windows Mobile device powered with proper software. A traveler will always have to face things like local time estimation, weather forecasts, currency, unit and clothing size conversion, city guides, planning of international calls and meetings, multi-connection trans-continental flights.

Spb Traveler provides users with an all-in-one solution - a universal travel tool set:

World Time - Frankly speaking there is no logic in world time. Time zone concept is one of the most complicated things you will have to face when traveling. Most time zones have a fixed hour time lag, but there are also time zones with a 30 or even 15 minute time lag! A city A, which is located several hundred miles to the east from city B, may have local time, which is two hours... less than that in city B! It's quite easy to get confused. With Spb Traveler you will know exact time in more than 10 000 cities over the world. Spb Traveler also offers tools for seamless international meeting and call planning.

Weather Forecast - No guidebook will ever tell you what the weather will be like tomorrow in a city you go to. Sometimes weather is the main if not the only reason we go to or from some place. Spb Traveler downloads and shows detailed weather forecasts for any city you choose. With automatic forecast updates you will always be aware of the most up-to-date weather forecast. And the full 5 day forecast will take less than 1 KB of your internet traffic!

Currency & Unit Converters - What is hotter: 30 degrees C or 90 degrees F? Is 500 Swedish Kronor too expensive for a dinner or not? People in different countries use different units and currencies and tools like unit and currency converters are a must have for any traveler. Spb Traveler can update currency rates automatically from the trusted sources.

Clothing Sizes - With a big number of different clothing types and size systems a good clothing size converter will be an essential overseas shopping companion. A unique feature of Spb Traveler is not only a capability to use conversion tables but also to manage clothing profiles for your relatives and friends.

Flight Assistant - This assistant is designed to help international travelers and especially those who take many connection flights. It's possible to save the created trip schedule in a separate file and share it with colleagues and family if needed.

Other Traveler Tools - Beside the mentioned tools Spb Traveler provides users with many other useful features like tip calculator, city location and sunrise/sunset times, useful city web links, powerful Today plug-in and even a nice bonus geo game.

Spb Traveler is currently available in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Czech, Dutch, and Japanese languages. Spb Traveler is compatible with all Windows Mobile Pocket PC 2003, Windows Mobile 5.0 and Windows Mobile 6 Classis and Professional Pocket PC devices. A free 15-day trial can be downloaded from Spb Software House, the full version costs US$ 29.95.
And - if you are a registered user of Spb Weather 1.X or Spb Time 2.X you can purchase Spb Traveler 1.0 for US$ 15.00 only. The special Spb Traveler price = Spb Traveler price - Spb Time/Spb Weather price = US$ 15.00 (US$ 29.95 - US$ 14.95).

Cheers ~ Arne

Shell and Traveler are nice, but what I'd really like to see is an updated Pocket Plus. If an update isn't imminent, I wish I could trade my Pocket Plus license for Shell.

While I like the idea of Shell, nothing compares to Pocket Plus! It's still one of the first apps l'm going to install on my Pocket PCs. However I wish we would see more Smartphone apps from Spb since I'm using my Smartphone how more than my Pocket PC.
Anyway, this Traveler looks pretty cool for travelers.
