Palm OS Updated:


Alex Pruss Software has updated its FontSmoother to version 2.31.

So, is the default font on your PDA not smooth or readable enough? Or maybe you would like fonts that are bigger... or smaller but still very legible? Perhaps using italics would look cool? Or do you have a favorite Windows font you want to use on your PDA? Make your ebook reader, browser and other applications look better than ever!

Smoothed fonts (antialiased fonts) decrease font "jagginess". FontSmoother lets you use smooth fonts in almost all applications on your hi-res OS 5 PDA (but not lo-res devices like Treo 600 or some Zires). FontSmoother includes a number of free smooth fonts and you can convert Windows TrueType fonts with the free EasyConvert utility.

There is a free 8 day trial, after which all smooth fonts default to their non-smooth versions until registration is completed. However, after the 8 days, font smoothing should remain in effect for free in the following applications PalmBible , BibleThumper, Bible Explorer with You, Bible with You, OliveTree Bible Reader, Concordance with You, myBible, BibleReadme, Universalis Liturgy of the Hours, and Virtual Rosary.

And, of course, you get FREE upgrades for the life of the product!


  • Use smooth fonts.
  • Use different fonts in different applications.
  • Make your own fonts out of Windows TrueType fonts (if your font license allows this).
  • Compatible with the latest version of Fonts4OS5, FontHackV or FontSubst, but can be used on its own.

Being someone with less than perfect eyesight, I usually increase the size of my font when possible. I'm sure FontSmoother would smooth out the jadded edges of these larger fonts!

Get it here for $12.95!

With PhoneLog you use your Treo's Phone Call log the way it should be!
