PalmPilot Freeware

Note: Most of the freeware here should run in Palm OS versions 2 through 5 – the classic Palm Operating System.  Hardware examples are the m100, on the low end, and the Treo 680 near the high end.  Owners of the original Palm Pre and other devices running webOS 1.4.5 or lower should be able to use these under an emulation platform called Classic.  Unfortunately, with the release of webOS 2.0 support was dropped for the Classic emulator.

There’s a treasure trove of Free PalmPilot software out there just waiting to be discovered. Over the years I’ve done a bit of digging and found a handful of special gems. Quality freeware designed especially for Palm PDAs and select Treo Smartphones. This isn’t meant to be an exhaustive list, rather it’s a small collection of only the best that Palm Freeware has to offer. My personal thanks to all the hardworking and generous developers out there who’ve really produced some outstanding games, apps and utilities.

QuickPhone

The beauty of QuickPhone is in its sheer simplicity. Basically it’s a much better (and more reliable) way of entering phone numbers when you’re in a hurry. Just tap numbers on a giant keypad and click the Add button; a new entry goes instantly to your Address Book – you can fill in all the details later. Definitely a good icon to keep on your Palm’s main page. Developed by John Yaggie.

Palm: The Original Mobile Operating System

Ever since I got my first PalmPilot back in 2001 I’ve been in love with the Palm Operating System. It’s efficient, organized, and most of all it was designed with third-party development in mind. Most of the software you’ll find here will run on just about any version of Palm OS, from 3.5 to the current 5.0. I ran many of these on my old m100 for instance. Now that I’ve got a Treo 680 I get to enjoy the same software, only with better graphics and Hi Resolution support. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have and please don’t forget to show your appreciation to the developers.
