Palm software

This will be updated and converted to HTML Soon!

This is all the free stuff I have, I haven't really looked arround
for new stuff since I got my palm about a year ago. www.palmgear.com
is great for looking for palm programs.

----------------------------------------

Acrobat Reader for the Palm OS

- Offline webpage viewer, kinda like avantgo but better, will read
  just about any webpage. 1.1.13 is the latest for windows. Bit of
  a trick to setup.
- There use to be a site www.pdahoo.com that had links to palm versions
  of websites, it's gone now though, best I can find now is
  http://www.aaparents.org/mobile.html I wish avantgo shows the actual
  webpage locations.

HACKS

Hacks are system patchs you load into the palm to get arround
stuff and get the os to do more things like display a logo on
startup, flip the screen, get arround bugs


In over to load Hacks you need a Hack manager. The original one
was called HackMaster, it was not free and it quite out of date.
Best one (and free) to now use is

X-Master
- http://linkesoft.com/english/xmaster/



FlipHack
- http://www.byteswapped.com/palm/
- Allows you to rotate the palm display and the buttons, don't know
  if this works with 320x320 clie's

Daylight Saving Hack
- http://www.benc.hr/dshack.htm
- Hack to get around daylight problems, if your palm doesn't do this
  already

McPhling
- http://home.cfl.rr.com/mjmdlm/palm/index.htm#McPhling
- Allows you to run DAs and also allows you to switch between the
  last 2 apps and also can bring up a little start menu like thing.

DA:

a DA, desk accessory, is a program that can run ontop of another
running program, kinda of a hack to multitask on a palm, usually
used for stuff like calcualtors, calendars, screen flipper,...etc



To run a DA you need a DA "hack", one I suggest is:

App-DA Launcher

  like along the edges
