Bubble Shuffle

Bubble Shuffle is a new word game from Astraware(R) - the Handmark(R) Games StudioTM featuring ever-friendly, fishy host, Wordsworth Smartygills. Bubble ShuffleTM follows on from Bubble Babble in the 'Bubble' word game series.

Bubble Shuffle is a simple undersea-themed word-building game that challenges players to create words from a given set of bubble letters. Perfect for adults and children, the game begins with 4 letters to work from and increases over multiple levels to 7 letters. To progress from level to level players must create at least one word from all of the letters. Players can shuffle the bubbles as many times as they want, to help them find more words.

The game features 4 fun game modes - 2 timed, and 2 more relaxing untimed games, each with a variation on the basic gameplay. Wordsworth Smartygills guides you through how to play, and can provide hints and clues throughout the game just by tapping him. Bubble Shuffle includes 4 levels of difficulty, and advanced anagram-anglers are rewarded for finding more unusual and esoteric words, with the option of requiring rare words from the inbuilt extended dictionary!

Players can earn a collection of colorful seahorse pets for Wordsworth by various achievements, from reaching new difficulty levels to the challenge of finding all of the possible words within the time limit.

Bubble Shuffle is available for Palm OS(R), Windows Mobile(R), iPhoneTM and iPod(R) touch.

You can get the Palm OS version here for $9.95.

Agendus for Palm OS Professional Edition

The folks at iambic have done it again. They've updated their already awesome Agendus for Palm OS Professional Edition to version 13.02!

The New Agendus 13: Accelerating Activity-Related Information Flow So You Get More Done today, tomorrow and beyond!
Your everyday life is anything but ordinary. It’s dynamic. It has its share of chaotic moments. And no matter how much you try to plan ahead, demands on your time never seem to let up. Keeping all those plates spinning and communication flowing, especially while on the go, can be quite the challenge. Though seemingly daunting, all this (and more!) is what Agendus, our award-winning personal information manager (PIM) was born to address.

And now, with the release of Version 13, Agendus has become even more finely tuned to accelerate activity-related information flow in a way that makes sense intuitively, can be tailored to meet your particular needs and is fun to use.

Seamless Integration – Agendus Automatically Connects the Dots.

What made the Agendus such a favorite since Day 1 is how it works seamlessly with the native Palm OS database. There are no plug-ins required and you can be up and running quickly with no duplication of effort.

Furthermore, the Agendus PIM functions (Contacts, Meetings, Tasks, Memos, etc.) are tightly integrated and feed into each other. This is what really makes Agendus a powerful personal productivity assistant.

By building the interrelatedness of the various functions into the program, Agendus is able to provide you with useful features like detailed contact histories, personal project management, journaling, and the ability to attach Contacts and files (PDFs, images and documents) to Calls, Tasks, Meetings and more.

Agendus is available in 3 different editions, to better match your specific needs: Premier, Professional and Standard.

An Intuitive Design that’s Easy to Use and Adaptable.

Agendus has an intuitive interface and a multitude of customization options, so you can easily set it up to look (and work) the way you want. There are numerous views to choose from. You can add colors, icons and photos. You can also crop photos and edit icons from within Agendus.

New for you! There are over a dozen major new features in Version 13, including timesavers like "Smart Agenda" for creating Tasks, Meetings and Memos on-the-fly, and fully editable Meeting and Task templates.

It now provides a better snapshot of what’s going on that includes Contacts, Meetings, Tasks so you get a more complete picture.

With Agendus Version 13, those who carry a Palm Centro or Treo can get more done before, during and after the activities that drive their day.

We invite you to test drive Agendus for Palm OS, Version 13 today!

Beyond Contacts provides everything you need in one package to manage your Outlook data for Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and Notes on your handheld, down to the very last detail!

This powerful application goes beyond just synchronization by providing the same look and feel of Outlook on your handheld, plus it brings all your Outlook data from multiple addresses and categories to meeting attendees and location.

eQuickRecipes Deluxe

Lakshmi Solutions LLC has updated its eQuickRecipes Deluxe to version 5.0!

eQuickRecipes to store your favorite and most often used cooking recipes. With this application you can easily carry the recipes for your favorite appetizers, dessert, entrée, etc. everywhere you go from your kitchen at home, to a friend’s house, to a party or reunion, and all the way to the store!


  • The application already contains an initial set of 35 very good recipes to get you started.
  • Adding more recipes and edit them is a simple two steps process. You can add as many as your device’s memory allows it, and categorize them using categories that you define and make sense to you.
  • The app will calculate the amounts of each ingredient depending on the number of servings you select.
  • Navigating on the app is easy, just use your finger or stylus (depending on your device) to tap through the screens.
  • Export your recipes to Memo files and send them to your friends using your mobile device tools (email, text msg, beam, etc).
  • The Deluxe version includes a PC companion, very similar to the software on the Mobile Device, to facilitate data entry on the PC. From PC companion the user can export the recipes to a word file for printing or to excel as a CSV file. You can also sync your data between your PC and your Mobile Device.
  • If you have Lakshmi Solutions LLC Shopping List in your device, you can rapidly add ingredients to your shopping list directly from the eQuickRecipes applications. Also look for eDrinksMixn for drinks recipes.
  • The application contains a Quick Guide describing each of the main features of the app.

Just reading the description of this program reminds me of a small dilema we used to encounter as I was a small child. Sure, it was easy enough to make a recipe if you intended to make it as written, but we often needed more than a reciped called for, as we had a large family. Don't you hate trying to figure out how to make twice as much, three times as much - when you have to do the math with halves, thirds, etc? This program does the math for you! Plus, you can expand and add your own recipes and file them under categories YOU create! The ability to export recipes through text messages, e-mail, beaming, etc is also a nice touch!

Get it here for $9.99 and you also get the PC companion which allows you to print your recipes!!

Utilities Bundle

RoGame Software has udpated its to version 4.9!

Utilities Bundle is a compilation of our applications Destaller Pro, SilkScreen, and SprayPaint at a very attractive price. All applications are optimized for Palm OS 5 and work perfectly on the Treo 600 and Treo 650. SilkScreen requires Palm OS 5. As always, you can download and install a DEMO to see whether things run fine on your handheld. Here is a short description of what is included:

These utilities are all bestsellers in their own right, but are for the first time bundled at an extremely attractive price. Download the demo - give it a try. These titles are also available individually.


  • Keep Things Running - Destaller Pro is an application oriented uninstaller. Applications store many different files that often cause resets and the necessity to do a hard reset when not removed properly. Destaller removes this danger and headache. In addition Destaller allows you to maximize the memory of your device by allowing to safely remove single files, 'a68k' Files, saved and unsaved preferences and much more.
  • Work Better - SilkScreen lets you perform all of the functions normally associated with the bottom part of a Palm device - the silkscreen - in the main display area. It also serves as an application launcher and has several other useful features like Virtual Graffiti, so that you can write in the main display area of the display. It does this in a unique manner by reserving small programmable tap areas at the corners and sides of the display screen and thus is immensely useful for devices with either collapsable Graffiti areas like the Tungsten series and devices without such an area like the Treo600.
  • Look Good - SprayPaint lets you select your own custom colors for things like backgrounds, menu frames, list and button background, texts and hilites and many more. It is a very easy to configure and save application and you won't believe for how long you have been staring at white buttons with white fills, after you have configured your own favourite color scheme. To make it easy there are lots of template schemes already pre-configured, so just dive in!

If you were to purchase these 3 utilities individually from RoGame's Website, the total cost would be $59.70. Why not purchase the bundle and pay only $29.95 and SAVE $29.75? That's a savings of 50%!
