New Version of Now Up-to-Date & Contact Arrives

Version 4.2 Offers Native Mac OS X Support for Palm
Computing Devices and New Backup Capabilities

Columbus, Ohio — April 8, 2002 — Power On Software, Inc. announced today
the immediate availability of a new release of Now Up-to-Date & Contact.
Version 4.2 of the top-selling Macintosh scheduler and contact manager for
individuals and workgroups offers native Mac OS X support for Palm
Computing=AE handheld devices. It also adds a new backup utility that allows
users to recover previous versions of their data in the event they wish to
undo synchronization sessions between their handheld device and their
Macintosh. Other features included in this release are: the addition of the
new NowPak for iPod module that permits contacts created in Now Contact to
be loaded into Apple’s new iPod devices, a new holiday file that adds
support for a number of European holidays, and an installer that has been
created exclusively Mac OS X users.

“This latest release is further evidence that Power On stands alone at the
top of this product category,” noted beta tester Tomas Rofkahr. Palm just
released the new Palm OS about a week ago and Power On is already shipping
this update, which is an incredibly fast turnaround. The backup feature is
really essential and I don’t know why no one else has thought of it.” As
Richard Theriault, formerly Editor-in-Chief of MacDesign magazine noted:
“Now Up-to-Date & Contact is smoothly integrated, beautifully designed; it
is graphic gratification; and Now Contact redefines F-A-S-T — the speed of
light just MAY have been attained.”

Now Up-to-Date & Contact Version 4.2 is available now. The suggested retail
price of the product is $129.95, with electronic downloads available for
$119.95. Upgrades from earlier versions of Now Up-to-Date & Contact are
