by Reads (3,995)

Agendus has released an upgrade of their most popular product, Agendus for the Palm OS. Agendus 6.0 now includes new major features, including Today View, new agenda views, advanced calendar view, customizable background, new jog dial functions, tap-and-hold menu features, alarm set-up for ongoing meetings, and much more.


Agendus has been one of the most popular replacements for the standard Palm applications, which many find to be too simple. Outlook users are often frustrated with the lack of functionality in the Palm applications. Agendus looks to offer you much more, with tight integration with their office and mail products.

Here’s a comprehensive list of what’s new in 6.0 –

+New features:

  • Today View (much like Outlook Today)
  • User selectable wallpaper for devices with memory card support (Sony Clie, M505, M515, Tungsten, etc)
  • New advanced calendar views
  • New To Do view has edit in place capabilities (in standard resolution)
  • Introduced ability to set how far in advance each to do is displayed
  • Improved start, and end alarm time selection dialogs
  • Improved and standardized new meeting, call and to do screens
  • Added user configurable filtering by view
  • Improved week list view

  • Added integration with Word (via Fastwriter), Excel (via TinySheet) and Email (via iambic Mail)
– Bug Fixes:

  • plays alarm sounds other than default sound
  • alarm notification for repeating meetings now shows correct date
  • to dos no longer skipped when tapping below car on scroll bar
  • when tapping on a meeting in week block mode the text in the popup window is displayed correctly and in the right font

iambic offers support for all Palm devices and all resolutions. If you find the Palm applications don’t quite meet your needs, I strongly recommend you download a trial version of Agendus 6.0. If you like it, the full version is $24.95.
