Well, Happy Friday 13th to ya! Let's roundup some software and see what's new this week and what's been updated. We'll be sure to lasso any black cats that might cross our path while we're at it.
As Dieter reported yesterday, the Official Palm Blog announced that there is now a native Facebook Application for the PalmOS. You can download the application here. Dieter stated:
Up until now, the Palm Centro's ability to appeal to the youth market has been quite good, but there was always a small cloud in that sky -- namely that the BlackBerry platform had a native Facebook app and the iPhone had a great iPhone-specific version of Facebook.
No more. With the new native Facebook app, Centro and PalmOS Treo owners are able to interact with their social networks much more quickly and easily.
With Facebook for Palm, you can:
With Facebook for Palm, there's also an over-the-air download you can use directly from your Treo or Centro here. Unlike the iPhone-web version, the PalmOS app can upload photos directly. Unlike the BlackBerry app, it can upload *video* directly.

NorthGlide has updated its Uninstall Manager to version 3.24.
Garbage is eating up your RAM! Uninstall Manager saves valuable memory space while keeping your device clean and trouble-free. Make sure that newly installed applications will be completely removed when they are no longer needed. Uninstall Manager is the most full-featured uninstaller available for the Palm OS:
Uninstall Manager includes many unique features to help you stay on top of your software installations: Completely remove applications including all of their associated files and preferences, even hidden ones that are not removed by any other means.
Uninstall manager includes an intelligent Real-Sandbox mode which allows you to install new applications inside completely isolated environments; launch, evaluate and safely delete applications without compromising other important data on your device (you can also keep these "isolated environments" on the expansion card to quickly test applications in the future).
Start a Recording, download files from the internet, receive files from friends (Bluetooth, IR, etc) and copy files from the expansion card...and with a push of a button you can quickly undo all changes to your device.
Group files on the main memory and the expansion card with different applications and make sure that ALL parts of the application are deleted when you choose to.
Uninstall Manager monitors file installations; that besides allowing you to track your software installation habits will also make sure that any supporting files installed alongside applications are removed when you delete the application itself.
This program sounds VERY handy and this is coming from someone who is familiar with lots of orphan files and junk left behind from unsuccessful uninstallations!

treoware has updated its Photos HQ to version 1.1.1!
Photos HQ is an application that lets you capture photographs of much higher quality than those created by the default camera software of your mobile phone. Photos HQ enhances the capture capabilities of devices with an VGA (640x480) camera and increases the resolution to 960x720 pixels by combining two consecutive images. Additionally, Photos HQ brings new features such as an improved digital zoom, a 10 seconds self-timer, a surveillance mode, and a picture-in-picture thumbnail showing the preceding photograph. Important notice: Photos HQ operates on current and probably future devices by detecting dynamically the capacities of each device (maximum size of the photographs, compression JPEG, memory cards, constraints related to the embedded memory). Certain functionalities may not apply to your device: please read the PDF tutorial to learn more about it.
Fellow writer Jay Gross recently reviewed Photos HQ version 1.0.4. Check out what he had to say!
