Mac OS X Version of Smith Micro's Award-Winning Fax Software Allows Users to Send and Receive Faxes From Any Document Application on the Mac
MACWORLD EXPO, NEW YORK, NY - BOOTH 567 -- The Macintosh Division of Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a developer and marketer of a wide range of software and service solutions for the Internet market, today announced FAXstf X, a complete fax solution built natively for Mac OS X. Tightly integrated with Apple's next generation operating system, FAXstf X builds upon the success of its previous version, allowing faxes to be sent and received from any Mac document application. FAXstf X lets users take advantage of the AddressBook within Mac OS X, making it unnecessary to duplicate or maintain multiple phonebooks. Users can simply drag and drop from the AddressBook into FAXstf X's FaxBrowser to send a fax.
"We are very excited about offering our full-featured fax software exclusively on Mac OS X," said William W. Smith Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Smith Micro. "FAXstf X is a powerful, easy-to-use solution and users will appreciate its seamless operation that enables ultra-fast faxing of virtually any document."
"The incredible success of Mac OS X has created a tremendous opportunity for software developers like Smith Micro," said Ron Okamoto Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "FAXstf X is a fantastic addition to the growing number of consumer and small business products available for Mac OS X, and demonstrates Smith Micro's strong commitment and focus on the Mac market."
As a native Mac OS X application, FAXstf X supports multi-threading to allow users to send faxes in the background while performing another task. In addition, FAXstf has taken full advantage of Mac OS X's Aqua user interface and features animated icons to reflect the status of a fax that's being sent or received. FAXstf X also supports AppleScript for users to easily automate repetitive fax tasks and offers third-party developers an easy way to integrate faxing function in their Mac OS X applications.
FAXstf X provides advanced features you won't find on any fax machine, such as sending a fax to multiple recipients; create AddressBook entries for different fax groups; edit and make notation on a received fax and then resend; page jumping to quickly go to any page in a document; and view faxes at any size up to 500%. Unique to FAXstf X is the FaxBrowser that lets users view and manage their faxes from one easy-to-use location-FAXstf X--easy fax management at your fingertips.
System requirements for FAXstf X include Mac OS X, hardware that runs Mac OS X and a recommended 30MB available RAM. Smith Micro's FAXstf X will begin shipping in Q3 2001 with a suggested retail price of $59.95. The software will be available at CompUSA, and other major retailers and eTailers.
