Weekly Tips and How-To's: TeksFiles

Wed Nov 12, 2008 - 1:43 PM EST - By Brian Hart


Just when I thought I would never use the old-school IR (infra-red) port on my Palm OS device again (I mean really - who does that nowadays?), along comes a free app that takes advantage of that old-fangled contraption. But it gets better. This app uses Bluetooth also! If you want to know how you can use your Palm OS Treo or Centro as a wireless storage device, read on!

I love me some free apps, so I usually check in on sites that have the freebies. The good folks at have posted a free app on called TeksFiles. What can TeksFiles do for you? I'm glad you asked!

In this day and age, going mobile is what it's all about. I see tons of thumb drives and other portable storage devices for sale, but I've never been one to want to carry MORE stuff around with me - carrying my mobile, car keys, and wallet are bad enough, right?

TeksFiles for your Palm device allows you to receive all types of files, beamed by either IR or Bluetooth to your device and saved on your storage card. The developer boasts that any kind of file type can be beamed to your Treo or Centro, then stored in main memory or on your removable memory card. Then, when you need to, you can beam the files somewhere else.

Basically, this app turns your Palm OS device into a wireless file storage. It's simple in function, but valuable when you want to move files around. You can even copy files back and forth on your Palm between main memory and the storage card - in this manner you can better organize your files, like MP3 files, for instance.

Give TeksFiles a try today and see how it works for you! It's free and you can download it here. Talk back to us in comments or in the forum to let us know how it works for you! Thanks to the people at for contributing to the Palm community.

If you are a developer with some helpful and/or fun software or if you have a tip or how-to that you wish to pass on to the rest of the community, just email me at: [email protected]. Thanks!
