Palm OS New:


As Neal mentioned yesterday, HeroCraft has just announced a new logic game called Twice.

Twice is an amazing logic game AND memory training tool in one! Flip the face-down mosaic tiles and remember the pattern on the other side. When you find two similar patterns, you score points. Twice - when simplicity and genius go together!

From reading the description on the HeroCraft Website, Twice sounds very similar to the old Match game!

Twice combines the main principles of a classic game: an attractive appearance, popular and simple rules and a variety of game modes. Its rules are well known: you have to flip the face-down tiles in the puzzle one by one and remember the pattern on the other side. When you flip two identical tiles, you score points. To complete the level you have to find all of the pairs.

Twice combines the main principles of a classic game: an attractive appearance, popular and simple rules and a variety of game modes. Twice has 3 game modes so you can pick the game that suits your tastes — race against time, limited number of attempts or no limits at all. Twice sounds like a fun game!

Twice's Features:

  • Colourful Oriental style graphics
  • Pleasant, relaxing music
  • Three game modes for all tastes
  • Excellent memory training tool
  • Captivating gameplay

Twice is available for Palm OS, Windows Mobile, iPhone and Symbian (S60 v.3 & UIQ v.3) platforms!

Head on over to the HeroCraft Website and check it out!! And now you can also get Twice here for $12.95.

Speedometer GPS v1.0

RNS:: Speedometer GPS, by RNS::, is the first GPS speedometer for Palm OS. It provides fairly accurate readings based on the GPS data received from the satellite system. It can measure the instantaneous speed of any moving vehicle.

High precision:
The ordinary speedometer in your car is normally not that precise - tolerance of a 10% error is allowed! Further inaccuracies might occur due to wear on tires, or their actual size if replaced. Conditions such as temperature, pressure, and vehicle load might add to that. Finally, car speedometers are intentionally set to show a little bit higher speed than the actual speed of your vehicle - this is supposed to help you obey speed limits.

Skins support:
RNS:: Speedometer GPS can be greatly customized with the use of skins. You may switch them at any moment to get a brand new look of the application. We have created several high resolution skins for your Palm device available on our official website. You can also create your own skins to customize the application even more! Visit the product's official website to start creating your skins.


  • Shows current speed on a big analog display and on a digital LCD screen
  • Calculates traveled distance using two independent odometers (resetable)
  • Calculates average and maximum speed (resetable) and marks them on the scale
  • Shows current altitude (height above sea level)
  • Shows current heading in two modes: graphic (like a compass) or numeric
  • Several LCD displays (the number of which depends on the selected skin) can be adjusted to show any of the calculated characteristics, as well as current time
  • and MANY more features!

Sounds awesome! Check out the screenshots!

SPINA Thyr v3.2 Beta

Formatios Reticularis presents SPINA (Structure Parameter Inference Approach). SPINA is a method to calculate constant structure parameters of endocrine feedback control systems from hormone levels obtained in vivo, has been applied in a prototypical implementation for the evaluation of the thyroid function.

Of course I use this app to check my endocrine levels on a daily basis. Yeah Right! LOL, if you believed that, I've got some swamp land in Flordia about 100 miles east of Dieter's house to sell ya. SPINA Thyr is over my head, but may be useful to those of you more educated. Much more educated, as in Doctors. ;-) I always enjoy seeing my doctors using medical apps on a Palm PDA or smartphone.
