New Technology for Consumers and Developers Optimizes Tablet Paradigm; PTPT Puts Users in Control of Data Regardless of Where It Is Stored
ExB Group, a leading provider of productivity solutions for mobile devices, today announced a new Android tablet version of its flagship product, petitpetit (PTPT). Rather than holding data hostage in individual silos or repositories like address books, photo albums or folders, PTPT works like a personal Wiki to intuitively find and aggregate personal information contextually regardless of where it is stored.
Now in beta, PTPT for Android is available direct to consumers as a stand-alone touchscreen application that helps users converge, manage, access and cross-reference digital assets according to an individual’s needs. Application developers and content managers can also leverage PTPT as an embedded user interface framework to build applications that optimize the tablet paradigm.
“We have worked with ExB on their beta program,” said Friedger Müffke of OpenIntents. ”Android and tablets are ideal for whole new ways for users to interact with their data, and petitpetit paves the ground exactly for this.”
The technology behind PTPT was developed by Dr. Ramin Assadollahi, the CEO of ExB petitpetit who is regarded as one of the outstanding innovators in the field of cognitive and linguistic interfaces. A visionary technologist in the software industry, Dr. Assadollahi holds an MS in computational linguistics and a PhD in clinical psychology.
“PTPT has the capability to create an entire ecosystem based on its completely unique interface,” said Dr. Assadollahi. “It appeals to a broad array of stakeholders — from application developers to device manufacturers to content providers — and each stands to gain by adopting the unified, powerful data representation provided by this technology.”
Forrester Research predicts that by 2015 one-third of US online consumers will be using a tablet device. This presents both a challenge and an opportunity for developers. Much like a wiki, PTPT provides a level of usability and intuitiveness unlike any other technology on the market where collected data of the whole is more useful than each application individually. With this technology, each entry is enriched by every individual application to create a stronger, more complete representation of data.
PTPT allows users to access any information directly, without having to search through various applications for a single file. Applications contribute and consume data from a common pool using the data parsing and association capabilities of PTPT.
