Resco has updated its Explorer 2009 for Palm OS to version 5.01!

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.

Since v4.10 Explorer supports Firefox-like Tabs and touch scrolling.


  • The File Manager is the heart of the Explorer. It is stable and efficient and it provides a comfortable way for file operations such as copying, moving, deleting, renaming, etc. It offers many enhanced 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.
  • Integrates more enhanced features such as editors of the preferences, file associations or alarms as well as the additional system information.
  • 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.
  • FTP explorer allows access to the web ftp servers. Explorer 2007 presents remote resources just like another card.
  • If you can connect to a PC, then you get the same type access to your LAN drives.
  • Explorer serves as an ideal fron-end for VPN clients.
  • FTP starters may use free FTP account at the DriveHQ hosting service.
  • -:-
  • Ability to browse over Bluetooth Nokia phones, PC's etc.
  • Zip installer contains Blue FTP server that enables browsing your Palm PDA from another device.
  • Streaming mp3 player can play songs over the network.
  • Secure storage will safely store documents, images etc. Direct editing possible.
  • Tab interface, touch scrolling, improved launcher, favorites...

Fellow writer Andre Kibbe reviewed Resco Explorer a few months back and found:

Resco's main strength is the value it offers for the price. BackupBuddyVFS Pro alone costs nearly as much as Explorer, and the other utilities that have free equivalents, like the file manager or the FTP client, are far more robust. I especially love the http download tool.

PocketMirror Standard (Outlook Synchronization)

The folks at Chapura have updated PocketMirror Standard to version 4.3.1.

With PocketMirror Standard software, take Outlook information anywhere you go. Easily keep track of where you need to be and what you need to be doing. Quickly look up a phone number or a note you recorded on your handheld during a meeting. Update either one on the spot and sync it with Outlook the next time you perform a HotSync at your PC.


  • Simple, convenient, and reliable - The software is simple to install and to start using. One-button synchronization is easy, accurate and uninterrupted. The software includes a convenient Help file that gets installed on your PC and gives you answers to the most commonly asked questions starting with, "How do I...?"
  • Basic Outlook synchronization - PocketMirror Standard synchronizes Outlook Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Notes with the built-in handheld applications to give you the results you expect—matching information on your PC and Palm OS handheld. Carry and update basic Outlook Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Notes data anywhere. Edit the information once, synchronize, and PocketMirror Standard makes that edit in the other location for you.
  • PocketMirror Standard synchronizes all fields built into the Palm OS Address Book, Date Book, To Do List and Memo Pad with corresponding Outlook fields. Including up to 15 categories.

NEW in PocketMirror Standard:

  • Global Address List - Now, it's easier than ever to stay connected and send emails while away from your PC. Compose emails to your corporate contacts just as easily on your Treo 600 or other Palm OS device as you can while sitting at your PC. PocketMirror Standard transfers names and email addresses from the Global Address List to the handheld.
  • Change Outlook Default Folder - Get the information you want from Outlook onto your handheld. Synchronize your handheld with any single Outlook folder simply by setting your preferred folder to be the default folder for synchronization. This goes for Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Notes.
  • Calendar Alarms & Reminders – Have you ever been sitting at your desk and had Outlook and your handheld start beeping alarms and reminders at you? New, flexible options let you synchronize the alarms between Outlook and the handheld, keep alarms in Outlook only, or keep alarms on the handheld only. So, you get to see and hear only the alarms you really need, wherever you are.
  • Conflict Resolution – When the same item in Outlook and the handheld has been modified between synchronizations, PocketMirror Standard now lets you choose how to resolve the conflict: duplicate records, Outlook wins, or handheld wins.
  • Note Color – Using colors is an effective way to organize information in Outlook Notes. Now, for any new Note created on the handheld, PocketMirror Standard allows you to choose the color for these new Notes in Outlook.
  • Select Outlook Contact Address – Outlook holds three mailing addresses per contact (Business, Home and Other); the Palm OS Address Book holds one. Now, you can choose which mailing address in Outlook for PocketMirror Standard to transfer to the handheld.
  • Task Filtering – Don’t use up valuable space on the handheld carrying around information you don't need. Delete completed tasks from the handheld all at once, instead of synchronizing them or deleting them one by one--but still keep a record of them in Outlook. Plus, you can exclude the synchronization of tasks assigned to others so only the tasks you need are transferred to your handheld.
  • Task Priorities – Outlook Tasks and the Palm OS To Do List application offer different ways of marking an item's priority. PocketMirror Standard now lets you transfer task priorities either by Outlook priority or by the handheld priority. It's your choice.
  • New Handheld User Note – PocketMirror Standard now detects synchronization with a device with a new user name and automatically creates a new handheld user note in the PocketMirror folder without halting synchronization.
  • Microsoft Outlook 2007 - Don't skip a beat when you switch to Microsoft Outlook 2007. PocketMirror Standard is ready to synchronize with it when you are.
