Plaxo today introduced Plaxo 3.0, a major new release of its market-leading “smart address book” service. Plaxo 3.0 is the first online address book and calendar to synchronize between Microsoft, Google, Yahoo!, AOL, Mac OSX, Thunderbird, and mobile phones. The new version makes simple what had until now been impossible: bridging between disparate tools and services with automated, multi-way synchronization – without cables, cradles, or complicated software set-up. Plaxo 3.0, now available for free in seven languages, is currently in beta.
“After a year of hard work re-tooling our service, this is much more than just another product release; we’re really introducing an all-new Plaxo,” said Todd Masonis, Founder and VP of Products. “Plaxo 3.0 is the platform upon which we can build out our ‘sync and share’ vision, giving people access to all their data wherever they need it, and enabling ever richer ways to stay connected with the people who matter in their lives.”
Plaxo 3.0 gives people universal access to all of their contacts and calendars – at work, at home, or on the road. Plaxo 3.0 offers a wide range of access options, including: a new web interface; native client software for Windows and Mac OSX; and several mobile options, including a new WAP 2.0 version for mobile browsers, available at m.plaxo.com.
