PalmTea v1.1

Praven3 Software has announced its PalmTea.

I like to drink green tea during the day, when at work. But I often get carried away with my work and forget the tea bag in the cup. The result is a cup of bitter tea. I needed a reminder.

So, I've created PalmTea. It is a timer for your Palm, that's been specificaly desined for measuring the time necessary to make tea. No more than that. Just set it to your preferred time (mine is 2 minutes).

Sounds simple, yet this could salvage a good cup of tea! Ever made tea and let it steep too long?

Tea lovers, get it here for FREE.

Palm OS updated:

Agendus for Windows Palm Desktop Edition v5.3

iambic has updated its Agendsu for Windows Palm Desktop Edition to version 5.3

Becoming more efficient and productive is something we want to do no matter where we are (at the desk or on the go). There are basic things that can be done (i.e. early planning). And then there are things you can do to boost the capabilities of software programs you�re already using on an every day basis. That�s where Agendus for Windows fits in. Not only is it the ultimate scheduling application, but it is also fun to use (and that�s half the battle when you are trying to make better use of your time).

Simply put: Agendus for Windows is an application that enhances how you view your calendar, contacts, tasks and memos. It also provides intuitive tools, such as text capturing, a free time finder, voice recording, advanced search capabilities and Internet features (weather, driving directions, address lookup). All of these things help in make scheduling extremely easy and hassle free.

Version 5 of Agendus for Windows Palm Desktop Edition has many new features that broaden its capabilities. For example, it is very Vista-like with an all new 3D glass look & feel. It has new Monthly Views, Contact Views/Capabilities and even a new Journaling functionality.

This version surpasses the features found in Palm Desktop itself AND is fun to use too. Talk about a win-win! Please read on to learn more.

Agendus: Safe, Easy, and in Sync

For many, the trusty desktop or notebook PC is like mission control �-the central location where key information needed to conduct business throughout the day is accessed. When you power up, everything you need from schedule to contact information, appointments, tasks and notes is awaiting your input.

Agendus for Windows is designed to add another layer of accessibility and usability to your information. The beauty of this program goes beyond the things it can help you do, it is also completely setup friendly. All you have to do is download and install, and it will automatically marry itself with your existing Palm Desktop information. When Agendus for Windows is launched, everything is completely integrated and ready for use..

Your information wherever you go! Do you already have Agendus installed on your Treo or other mobile companion? Keeping your desktop and mobile companion in sync is easily accomplished. Agendus for Windows uses your current synchronization configuration to keep the two in line and up to date.

Initiate 3.59 BETA

Initiate 3.59 beta, by Hobbyist Software, is now out. It lets you use icons for category tabs instead of (or as well as) names of categories.

A default Initiate icon set yet, so you will have to install a third party one.

Initiate is a Fast, Powerful launcher, with fantastic extra features.

Initiate offers most of the useful features from launchers that cost much more. And it offers a host of features that you won't find in any other launcher. Features like Type To Search, Contact integration and Views.
You can try it for free until the nags wear you down!

It's different to other launchers- so please take a little time to read about how to make the most of it.

There are many Initiate users who have contributed to Initiate3. My thanks go to all of them - you have really helped shape and Build Initiate. Particular thanks go to Markus Hirschbuegl who designed the great new look. Thank you. (the author)
