Business Professional Ringtones by ExecTones v4.0

Matchmaker by Sing:
The stars can provide much insight about ourselves, including how, when, and with whom we are most likely to fall in love. Of course, astrology is not destiny, so while the one you love may not be a "classic" match for you in astrological terms, that doesn't mean all is lost. By understanding the universal forces that attract you to your lover, you can learn how to make any relationship work, and better understand your own self in the process.

Horoscopes 2008:
What's in the stars for you in 2008? Astrology & Horoscope Pro has the scoop on everything from professional developments to romantic interludes to the general trends of your life! Find out when you should ask for that raise, lift your ban on blind dates or start planning for a visit to faraway lands.

Zodiac Signs:
Welcome to the fascinating world of astrology and horoscopes! For years, decades and centuries human-kind has turned to the heavens for answers and guidance in their lives! This program area covers all details about your sign as: Love, Health, Likes/Dislikes, Problems/Solutions, Planet ruling, your animal, color of choice, starstone, famous persons with your sign etc.

Numerology 2008:
Numerology is a key to your inner self. All numbers based on your date of birth reflect influences and events related to the momentum of your life. Think of their effect on your life as similar to the weather and the landscape you travel through -- the Path of Your Life. The influences are enormously important. In fact, the most important number in your chart -- the Life Path number -- is based on your date of birth. And yet, the power of these numbers is felt as almost "external" -- most of them affect you only for periods in your life (cycles) or are overcome after you reach a certain age (Challenges). Even your Life Path number is a cycle; it is the longest cycle of your life.

File manager, zipper, viewer, launcher, backup tool, ftp, bluetooth and network explorer in one product. You get in one package handset of tools that used to be scattered in various applications.

One of the best features of the Explorer is its customizability. The users may choose between one- or two-panel modes, horizontal or vertical layout and setup other display aspects. Note also the possibility of the one-handed control and the support of all common devices and resolutions.

It is stable and efficient and it provides a comfortable way for file operations such as copying, moving, deleting, renaming, etc. It offers many enhaced functions such as drag&drop, copy&paste, multi-selection, RAM/card conversions, powerful sorting, searching and filtering.
  • The zipper is integrated fully transparently into the Explorer. A zip archive is like a folder that just happens to take less space. You can even start zipped apps or preview zipped images.
  • Secure encryption (AES) is part of the zipper enabling thus protection of the whole data folders.
  • Explorer allows to start the applications stored in RAM, on the card or even in the zip archives.
  • Moreover, by tapping suitable file (image, eBook, Word document, mp3...) you can launch the associated application. Editor of the associations is available, too.
  • Lists Palm applications grouped by the traditional Palm categories. You can find here each application with conveniently grouped resources — files and databases.

  • A simple fast viewer providing full-screen image preview. Displays jpg/bmp/gif images and images produced by Clie and Zire cameras. Enables direct image preview from the zip archives. Alternatively the external viewers can be employed.
  • Txt files offer the easiest way how to share the information with the non-Palm world. Text files can be beamed, hotsynced, created and finally edited either with the built-in memopad or using the hex editor.
  • Backup: For those who need just manual backup, Explorer 2007 offers a multi-backup solution with fast compression, incremental backup, encryption, sorting and filtering and with open zip format. Unique feature is the backup verification.
  • RAM Analyzer: Explorer offers structured folder view of the RAM with the databases sorted into reasonably defined folders. Ideal for PDA cleaning.

The Windows Explorer style interface isn’t the most elegant design for a file management, but it is the most informative and familiar for Windows desktop users. For anyone in search of that information and familiarity, Resco is worth exploring.
