Lightspeed 2.0 Released

One of the most common ways to maximize battery life or performance is to change the speed of the processor. On Palm OS devices, Lightspeed has been a longtime over/under-clocking utility that helps people maximize their battery life, or get the best application performance out of their device.

Version 2.0 of this application has been recently released and includes support for many newer Palm OS PDAs (the Palm Z22, T5, LifeDrive, TX, 650, and E2; the Samsung SPH-i500; the Garmin iQue 3600a; and the Qool QDA-700).

This release is a free upgrade for all existing users, and available for new customers for $14.95 (25% percent off the regular price). More information can be found at the ClieVideo web site.


PlanMaker 2006 for Pocket PCs in Public Beta

Many users of Windows Mobile/Pocket PC devices soon find out that the built -n Pocket Office apps are good for minor editing, but they cannot by any means replace the full desktop versions. However, with more and more people taking the office out of the office, having programs that are as good (if not better) than desktop equivalents is very important.

To that end the popular PlanMaker spreadsheet application for Windows Mobile/Pocket PC devices has entered into beta testing for the 2006 version. New features in this beta include the ability to create forms with input fields, checkboxes, drop-down lists, and more; the ability to separate headers and footers; expanded international currency support.; user interface, menus, and dialogs in nine languages; and full support for Unicode.

The public beta version of PlanMaker 2006 for Pocket PCs is available free of charge from the SoftMaker web site.
