Fri Nov 14, 2008 - 4:26 AM EST - By Neal Martin

Palm OS Software

Welcome to this week's roundup! We have a new update to Bookworm and Agendus for WM. Plus there are other new and updated apps to check out.

Palm OS New:

Pronto Build Your Own Forms v1.1

Pronto, by TrueContext Corporation, allows companies to immediately eliminate paper forms with real-time capture and reporting of mission-critical information using BlackBerry and Windows Mobile devices. Pronto easily mobilizes common processes like inspections, audits, surveys and work orders used in multiple industries.

My wife works for a big grocery shipping corporation here in North Carolina as a scanning coordinator. I've helped her scan literally hundreds of thousands of sheets of paper - which are then either thrown away or recycled. If a company were to use this, it could cut back on my wife's workload quite a bit, as well as save a LOT of wasted paper. I'm for it, as long as she isn't out of a job, LoL!

  • Capture information on your mobile device
  • Enter data with intuitive form controls:
    • Drop Down Lists

  • Report plus view/export data in common formats (CSV, XML, PDF)

PocketMac GoBetween for MeetingMaker v4.0

Let's be honest...even as great as Apple's iSync (Sync Services) is, it's limited. If you have an iPhone or any of the other devices it supports and you want to sync using Apple's native OS X Address Book or iCal, you're all set. However, if you depend on Meeting Maker for your contacts, calendars & tasks, you were stuck...until now.

What's more, this is a completely 2-way sync. If you make a change to data on your device, it will be synched toMeeting Maker every type you run a sync with PocketMac GoBetween for Meeting Maker. And...it's safe for your data. This software has been tested, re-tested and then tested again for over a year to make sure your data was being routed perfectly! And now it's ready to run on your Mac!

Installing this software will take you 3 minutes and configuring PocketMac GoBetween for Meeting Maker for synchronizing with your Meeting Maker server is a breeze! All you need is is your:
