FREIBURG, Germany - October 25, 2010 - Paragon Software Group, a leading software developer for mobile devices and desktop computers, is pleased to announce a weeklong series of giveaways and specials of its software titles for Android smartphones.  Facebook users who like the Paragon Mobile Products page, and followers of Paragon_Mobile on Twitter will receive updates beginning October 26, 2010, on upcoming specials, which will include discount codes and free licenses for Android products such as the Handy Safe Pro 2.0 data-management application and newly launched PenReader multilingual handwriting recognition software.

Android adoption has reportedly skyrocketed by about 16 percent in a little over a year.  Gartner predicts Android will claim second place in worldwide mobile operating system adoption by the end of 2010.

"Paragon has kept pace with the explosive growth of the Android OS by extending our award-winning titles to its users," says Ekaterina Kuznetsova, Marketing Director of Android products at Paragon Software Group.  "Paragon currently offers 134 apps among the 70,000 at the Android Market, and we'd like to reward our loyal customers who may have enjoyed Paragon products in the past who are adopting this new platform."

PenReader for Android is multilingual handwriting recognition software that enables handwritten data input directly to the device.  Supporting 30 languages, PenReader for Android recognizes letters, numbers, standard, arithmetic and punctuation symbols, and can be customized to the user's personal handwriting style.  The application was launched in October, 2010, on the Android Market, and is currently available for download.

Handy Safe Pro 2.0 for Android pairs a new level of usability in data management applications with unbeatable security functionality.  Keeping your mind free of countless numbers and letters, all important information can be kept in one place - safe, easy to access and always with you.  Store passwords, credit card details, user names, codes, PINs, web pages, addresses, travel info, insurance policies, software keys and much more on your mobile device.  Customized graphical cards represent all your confidential information in an easy-to-use interface, and 128-bit Blowfish encryption guarantees absolute security.  Paired with Handy Safe Desktop Professional 2.0, users can easily store, edit, share and sync private information with their desktop PC.
