This week we have more fun tricks you can try at home with your handheld. And, to be sure everyone can play, we’ve widened the definition of handheld.
Rather than connecting to your desktop with VNC or another traditional remote client, this application lets you use powerful Open Source technologies to provide web-based control of your desktop to your web-enabled phone or PDA. Installation requires you to have or install PHP, MySQL and some scripting additions.
We won’t argue whether or not the iPod is a handheld. It certainly does manage personal info. This week I have two different ways of getting text files from your desktop to your ‘Pod.
Before you would-be book arsonists get too excited, you should probably know that this application converts text files into AIFF audio files, fit to burn to CD or sync to iPod. Put your matches away.
If you aren’t interested in burning or converting your text, you can use this free program to sync, organize and manage text files saved on your iPod as notes.
Our friends at Queuesoft are busy as always, firing out useful and new Palm related software.
Use this new app (still in beta) to manage photos on your Palm device. This application reveals goodies like category, size and date taken.
This Widget you access your Palm notes from Dashboard. Uses the iPalmMemo app ($9).
Thanks for joining me this week. I wish you all happy syncing.
