Two Now X modules ship
Now Software has released the first two modules for its newly released Now X, Now Up-To-Date X and Now Contact X. The contact and calendar clients are improvements on the calendar and contact management features originally created for Now Up-to-Date and Contact. The modules are used to manage a user's calendar and contacts and can import and sync information from iCal and Address Book. The application can additionally import data from iCalendar and vCard.
Now X allows users to share data between their computers and personal devices, such as the iPhone, PDAs, and iPods. The application utilizes administrator tools that can assign data access to thousands of users.
A Windows version of the software is currently being developed. Now X Server, another app module, is set to be released soon. Now X requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 and can be purchased from the Now Software online store for $130. Registered users of Now Up-to-Date and Contact can upgrade for $50.
