Fri Nov 21, 2008 - 3:32 AM EST - By Neal Martin

Palm OS

Welcome to this week's software roundup! Let's round' em up and see what's new and updated this time around...

Palm OS New:

NetWalk for Palm OS v2.2

After the big success of NetWalk, BEIKS received tons of letters with requests to continue and enhance the game. Most were asking for more puzzles, some for ability to create their own ones and some for help with the bonus puzzle. Here it is, NetWalk II, the answer to your prayers!

There will be a lot of newcomers, though, which deserve to learn a bit more about the game. The old friends can simply go to the download page and get their updates or new levels. Free!

In NetWalk, your task is to set order in a disconnected world and get every computer connected to a server. You can dynamically see how the signal spreads along the net when you adjust the connection cables by rotating them. Sounds easy...and it's actually not that hard indeed...except sometimes. People like sometimes.

2009 Astrology & Horoscopes Pro

CrazySoft has updated its 2009 Astrology & Horoscopes to version 1.3.

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 2009:
What's in the stars for you in 2009? 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 2009:
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.


  • Run on the newest and the old Windows Mobile smartphones.
  • Horizontal resolutions supported.
  • Windows Mobile smartphones WM6 & WM5 fully supported.

Hmm.. this is for 2009 and already updated? Maybe the program foretold something important and they changed it and updated it! Hehe!
