Deskloops(R) Delivers A New Generation of Intuitive Desktop Productivity Software To Match the Way People Multi-Task In The PC Environment; Windows XP Users Have First User Advantage of Free Download of 1.4 Beta.

NEW YORK -- Xilokit, the friendly digital productivity company, today announced the release of Deskloops 1.4 for free download at www.deskloops.com. Deskloops 1.4 delivers a new application management system to group related applications and files into intuitive visual projects or 'loops'.

Users of WindowsXP operating system gain a parallel desktop environment that solves the basic problem of managing multiple sources of content. Deskloops, not to be confused as a new operating system, gives users an infinitely expandable platform to manage multiple windows and applications simultaneously and increase desktop 'screen-estate'.

To date, Deskloops has nearly 200,000 registered Beta users and it is estimated that more than a million unregistered downloads are in use as a result of free availability to computer clubs and bloggers since autumn 2005.

The Deskloops application is a new content organizational tool for Windows. Deskloops users can organize open windows and applications and group them into a single project or file called the loop. The loop, with its own unique file extension, displays all open content, such as web sites, data files, images, spreadsheets, PDFs and other applications and links windows end to end in one loop that can be rapidly scrolled horizontally across the desktop. The loop environment enables a user to group all content related to a project or task for more efficient orientation, organization and collaboration.

All content in a loop is visible as 'thumbnails' in the drop down 'strip,' which provides a easily accessed environment for organizing projects and tasks. The strip displays all open content at once, and enables users to arrange, scroll, save, and e-mail content to others quickly and efficiently. The strip is also a search platform, which supports rapid browsing, downloading and saving of multiple web pages for research, comparison shopping, information and entertainment.

Xilokit is a pioneer in Loop Environment Technology, which was created by developers and researchers looking for a better way to organize content. "Our experience shows that the loop metaphor is a better way for users to organize, orient and access content," says Xilokit co-founder Eran Palatnik. "When windows are stacked one on top of the other, you can't easily prioritize them, locate them or share them with others."

"For example, I can email to you a loop file on my trip to Paris. In that file you will see everything I saved related to the trip, including the flight / hotel bookings, maps, costs, and interesting places to visit," said Palatnik. "Similarly, research that supports a project can be saved and mailed, the uses are endless," he added.

"For multi-taskers with 6-10 windows open on the desktop, Deskloops, dramatically increases 'screen-estate,' eliminates window clutter, and transforms an ordinary PC into a dynamic desktop content management tool," added Palatnik.
