Revolutionary new PC automation tool continues to gather positive press and customer feedback

West Des Moines, Iowa, February 4, 1999 -- CE Software, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of CE Software Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ SC Symbol: CESH), today announced positive reviews of QuicKeys for Windows in three leading computer publications, PC World , PC Magazine and Smart Computing. The latest in a wave of press coverage for the new PC automation tool, these reviews follow others in Newsweek, Londonís Sunday Times, The Chicago Sun-Times and The San Francisco Chronicle. QuicKeys for Windows was also recently named a finalist for the Software Publishers Associationís prestigious Excellence in Software Awards.

"CE Software's QuicKeys, a longtime and deservedly lauded system utility for the Mac, has finally come to the Windows environment -- where, frankly, it's needed most," wrote Glenn McDonald on PC Worldís Web site last week. "[QuicKeys] is the best I've seen at what it does -- automating those small but endless PC chores you have to do over and over."

Also last week, PC Magazine onlineís Kathy Yakal wrote that QuicKeys could be "well worth the money if you're a hotkey enthusiast frustrated by a lack of shortcuts in your applications . . . Or if you're a creature of habit whose rote computing procedures would benefit from simple automation."

In addition, in the March print and Web issue, the editors of Smart Computing wrote: "The better way, the QuicKeys way, is to automate all those repetitive steps by assigning them to a couple of keystrokes. CE Softwareís QuicKeys provides powerful options for creating your own automated tasks that reduce 20 or 30 tiresome steps to something such as CTRL-SHIFT-F8."

Christian F. Gurney, president and CEO of CE Software, Inc., said: "The continued positive press and customer reaction weíve seen for QuicKeys for Windows contributes to the productís growing momentum. Just two months after its release, QuicKeys is already helping thousands of Windows users save time, effort and money each and every day."
