Founded in 2002 as Pocket Watch Software by Charles Teel, our company launched what has continued to be our lead product, ActivePrint. Teel developed the idea of ActivePrint as a college student while at Texas A&M University after getting his first Pocket PC. In class, he would write pages and pages of notes on his Pocket PC but would have to manually copy those files to his desktop computer, and then print them one at a time. Frustrated, he looked for a software alternative to make this process simpler. However, the closest thing he could find would require another $400 of hardware and software, and even then it wouldn't fully automate the process. So Teel set out to develop ActivePrint, the first and only mobile printing solution that gives users the ability to print right out of the box at an affordable price (even for college students). Pocket Watch Software continued to develop the ActivePrint technology to make it more effective. After reorganizing Pocket Watch Software to Pocket Watch, LLC. in 2007, we continue the legacy of making technology work for our customers. Copyright (C) 2002-2012, Pocket Watch, LLC.
