The lack of certain apps, this type being among them, is one reason why I'll pass on the platform for daily use. Actually, this in itself represents an entire category of apps that have been overlooked and specific needs that are being ignored.
Its a bit much to get into right now, but local sync, backup and restore are must haves on any platform. Data that can not be entrusted to the cloud need alternate handling and Palm blew it in the early design stages. The nature of the os is one thing but this is no excuse as the competition also have modern, web-centric platforms. Local data handling as well as robust encryption should not be third-party issues to begin w/, but here we are.
As an aside, its mind-boggling that there are businesses today that are looking to Aceeca and Palm OS for solutions.
