YesSoftware Releases DemoCharge™ 2004

Simplifies Creation of Animated Demos for use in Web content, Emails, Tutorials, and Training and Help Materials

Las Vegas, Nevada - September 14, 2004 - YesSoftware today announced DemoCharge 2004, an essential product for creating animated demos for use in Web content, emails, documents, tutorials, and training and help materials. It records the use of any application or onscreen activity, including all visible mouse movements, and instantly creates demos in DemoGIF (animated GIFs) format. File sizes are small enough to email, publish on the Web or include in documentation. DemoCharge Professional version will also support Macromedia® Flash® format and Java Applets and is scheduled for release Q1 of 2005.

Demos can be created in three easy steps that even the most novice user can complete. First, record the use of any application or onscreen activity. Second, enhance the individual frames in the intuitive workspace with special effects such as customized text captions, buttons, images, and highlights to attract attention to important points. Third, have DemoCharge generate an animated DemoGIF.

DemoCharge 2004 doesn't require technical experience. The user categories and applications of the product include:

Casual computer user:

  • Demonstrate difficult to explain support issues by retracing your actions and capturing the precise steps with an animation that clearly shows the steps leading to the problem. Send the demo to support via email for guaranteed results.
  • Quickly create office demos to answer those "how do I" questions about Word, Excel, and other common applications. Email the compact DemoCharge animation to the entire office.
  • Add excitement to your personal Web site with dynamic content.

Technical support, sales and marketing professionals:

  • Convey the value of your company's products, services, or Web site through DemoCharge's powerful animated demonstrations.
  • Replace difficult written instruction in a knowledge base, tutorial, or help materials with easy to follow demonstrations that visually answer the question at hand.
  • Easily email or publish online or offline DemoCharge animations to answer FAQ's, train new customers, and avoid costly phone support.


  • Create animated demos that concentrate on key software features or simulate common tasks.
  • Stop trying to describe bugs. Accurately and instantly capture bug behavior and email the animated demo to colleagues for fast resolution.
  • Express your vision and share software ideas with quick mock-ups demos.

"Cluttered Web pages or wordy emails, tutorials, and Help files with too much written information tend to confuse people," said Konrad Musial, CEO of YesSoftware. "With DemoCharge, this information is conveyed visually to reduce confusion, give more detailed explanation, enable quick decision-making, and transcend language barriers. It's easy-to-use and has endless applications that are helpful to the casual computer user, technical support, sales and marketing professionals, and skilled developers."
