Pocket Genealogist 3.10 has been released.

Changes :

• Added Smartphone (non-touchscreen) support. Windows Mobile 5 or 6 only with devices that have 240×320 or 320×240 screens.
• Much better support for the use of PocketPC’s without a stylus : menu’s at the bottom of each screen to perform actions that previously required a stylus ; support for Windows Mobile 5 and 6 “soft key” hardware buttons for use with the new menus ; much better support of the 5-way Directional Pad (D-Pad) button.
• Better Windows Mobile 6 support – 320×320 and 480×800 screens support.
• Major redesign of the Event, “Edit Date”, Research List, Notes, and Relationships (TMG only) screens on the device to simplify and clarify use. Minor changes to many other screens and changes for “Square Screen” and PocketPC Landscape devices for better display of the data.
• The Date Calculator now allows you to determine number of years, months and days between two dates. You also can still calculate a 2nd date from a 1st date with the addition/subtraction of years, months and days.
• Reworked “Language Pack” support, Languages are no longer a separate install. Use the “Advanced”, “Options” screen to select which languages get installed to the device. Danish, Dutch, Norwegian, Portuguese and Swedish updated. Reworked how translations work with the imports and you may find that you don’t have as complete of a translation as with the older versions. (for data related items such as event types).
