Palm OS New:

Insaniquarium Deluxe for Palm OS v1.00

Astraware has just released Insaniquarium Deluxe, which is a separate game from the original Insaniquarium game released a few years ago. Insaniquarium Deluxe is based on the highly acclaimed PC game by PopCap Games, Inc.

Insaniquarium Deluxe is the craziest aquarium game ever - tend to your fish and keep them happy and they'll reward you with precious coins and jewels. Use the money you earn to buy upgrades for your tank or egg parts which hatch lots of different in-tank pets with special powers. These pets can help you feed your fish, collect coins, or even protect against the aliens that will invade your tank and wreak havoc. You can also use the money you earn to buy better weapons to see the aliens off quicker!

Insaniquarium Deluxe includes 3 fun ways to play:

  • Adventure - keep your fish healthy and protect them from aliens through 4 fun aquarium stages each with multiple levels of mayhem
  • Time Trial - feed your fish and fight off the alien invaders to make as much money as possible against the clock. A new time trial is unlocked as you complete each stage in Adventure
  • Challenge - once you've mastered Adventure, face the ultimate challenge as you feed your fish and try to protect them from ever increasing alien attacks. The challenge ends when the last fish is zapped!

Insaniquarium Deluxe is available for Palm OS 5 smartphones and PDAs with at least a 320x320 screen, and for Windows Mobile smartphones 2003 and later.

Grab it here for $19.95!

NinerPad v1.0R1

Hey, do you often have ideas and wish you could jot them down? With NinerPad, by Niner Productions, you can sketch ideas, to-dos, and notes almost as fast as you can think of them!

Tag them, file them, and set reminder actions and alarms for them.

Later, export them to GIF for sharing or integration with other devices and platforms.

NinerPad: GTD tracking software for Palm OS.


  • (almost) unlimited canvas, coz size matters
  • fast, smooth, variable-width ink is pretty

Library Assistant v5.0

Library Assistant, by ieosoft, is a program to keep track all your books borrowed from the library with ALARM function. Even if your palm is off, when alarm is set, the palm will be power on automatically and display the book you need to return. If you miss the alarm, you will still be noticed by displaying about the book you need to return once you turn on the palm!


  • All books are sorted by date. So, you will immediately be noticed which book you need to return. Date borrowed will be generated automatically - no need to key in the date. When you launch the program, you can easily view all the books you had borrowed from the library. The books are sorted by date. By tapping on the items on the frame, you can edit the selected item or created a new item.The date you borrow the book will be generated automatically.

I would imagine this program could be adjusted for other, similar purposes - so check it out!

Get it here, it's only $6.50!

Records (AudioManager) v1.0.7

AudioManager, by treoware, is a user-friendly application that lets you manage your collection of records (CD, DVD, LP, UMD...) by using your PDA. Records can be added manually or using online searches. Information such as release date, cover, and track list... can be added easily.


  • manage your collection of records
  • add records manually or using online searches
  • manage borrowed and lent records
  • database and application usable from memory card

Again, I figure this program could be adjusted to pretty much manage any collection you have - so check it out!

Get it here for $9.95.

RoGame Software has updated its music bundle, aptly named Music Bundle, to version 7.1.

This bundle includes our popular music applications Almond, DaCapo, and Mozart at a great price. It gives any music student a headstart with the most common needs - learning to read music, music terminology and a metronome. A GREAT gift to anybody who studies an instrument at any level. These programs are used in many schools and a great tool for music education. All applications are also available separately.


  • Almond - is a musical terms database and reader. In addition to most common phrases in music today also standard Italian and German terminology is included. Definitions are easily copied to the clipboard for use in MemoPad and other applications. Almond's database can be included in the global Find application for easy access.
  • DaCapo - keeps the beat for you. In addition to regular metronome functions, like Italian speed names bpm display, adjustable tuning pitch and visual indicator there are many other features. Accents can be set at different intervals to emulate meters like 3/4 or 7/8. Also measure groupings can be created like a 12 measure blues form. In addition DaCapo features easy access with big buttons, hardkey mapping and great graphic layout. A must-have for practicing on the road. Supports Palm OS 5 and the Tungsten 5-way button.
  • Mozart - is a new game for musicians. In the tradition of Giraffe you are confronted with a steady stream of notes that you have to input correctly. The slight difference is that you'll need to know the name of the note, before you tap the buttons. The difficulty increases until you need to identify several ledger lines above and below the staff. You can choose different clefs and input methods as well as two player levels.

Purchased separately, this 3 programs would cost $55.95. Buy the bundle, get all 3 great programs and save $15.90!
