Tablet Enhancements 3 has recently been turned from a commercial application to a free for all software program that adds much needed tablet PC support to Microsoft Outlook 2003 or Microsoft Outlook 2007. It runs on a wide variety of hardware including Tablet PCs, UMPCs (Ultra Mobile PCs) or an Origami device running Windows XP Tablet PC Edition or Windows Vista.
Tablet Enhancements 3 for Outlook adds the TEO mode to Outlook which is basically a full conversion of Outlook forms into ink-enabled forms. It is possible to switch between modes on the fly and convert handwritten notes into characters without difficulties.
The notes can also be kept in handwriting if that is preferred which is a nice feature. The software program does add rich note taking to Microsoft Outlook which accepts both text and handwritten content as well as images and other media files.
Tablet Enhancements for Outlook adds organizing features to Outlook. It can keep a log of Skype phone calls, keep track of research topics by using Wikipedia links and MapPoint integration.
Update: The developer website is no longer available which also means that the download is not available anymore. It is not clear when that happened, only that it did. It is however very likely that the program was not that requested after all, considering that it was only compatible with Outlook 2003 and 2007, and that tablets at the time of release were not really the most popular of devices.
