APPOINT'S BUSINESS LINE PRODUCTS NOW INCLUDE DELTA POINT'S 'ANIMATED DESKTOP' SOFTWARE

 PLEASANTON, Calif., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Appoint Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: APNT) announced today that a special version of Delta Point's "Animated Desktop" software will now be included with each of Appoint's Business Line products. The Business Line, which includes MousePen Pro, Thumbelina and Gulliver, features Appoint's advanced input device technology designed to work on any surface and at almost any angle -- without a mouse pad.
 "Animated Desktop," a $69 retail value, is a Windows-based software utility that allows the user to personalize the desktop with animated icons and cursors. "Animated Desktop" includes a selection of ready-to- use icons (including a flying witch, a rotating glob and walking fingers). More creative users can design their own icons and cursors with the "Animation Toolbox" utility.
 "Animated Desktop" represents an exciting addition to the business line and an exceptional value for consumers. "We've been looking for a software program that is well matched with our mouse devices," said Cynthia Colmenares, vice president of sales at Appoint. "`Animated Desktop' is a top-selling software product that meets our requirements."
 Appoint's Business Line is based on the Mouse Tools concept, featuring "the right tool for every job." The Business Line toolbox includes MousePen Pro, an ergonomically designed input device shaped like a pen that provides maximum dexterity and control for graphics applications, Thumbelina, a miniature handheld trackball ideally suited for presentations, and Gulliver, the only mouse designed especially for portable computers. Each product is packed with a full line of accessories appropriate to the product (e.g., a bracket for the Thumbelina trackball). "Animated Desktop" now provides an additional value bonus for the Appoint Business Line customer. Appoint's suggested retail pricing (including Animated Desktop) is $99 for MousePen and Thumbelina and $119 for Gulliver.
 Appoint designs, manufacturers and markets advanced technology input devices for IBM compatible, portable and Apple Macintosh computers.
