    Are there any Apps you know of that, in your opinion, push the Palm envelope?

    Here are a few I think should be credited:

    Dreadling -
    This 3D game simply ROCKS! I'd love to see them improve upon it (sharper graphix!)

    ZioGolf-
    This game reminds me of the version I use to play on a Windows laptop. It's exquisitely detailed!

    TealMovie-
    WOW! Too bad Palm's don't have decent speakers. (VisorSpeaker! Module!)

    VRally -
    I think this game is pretty good too. Nice detail, 3-D feel.

    SimCity -
    This is amazing! How on earth did they get this game in pocket form?

    ----

    Know of any others???

    DrawIt!
    RaceFever
    Zap2016

    Stowaway
    WordSmith
    Bonsai
    DayNotez


    SOme of these might not be "Killer Apps", but I just think these items listed give me all the functionality I need to be productive from something that can fit in a large pocket.

    The first four I listed are the ones that I keep on my system to make people druel (even the ppc guys), the lower 4 are the items that really prove the purpose beyond the cool-techno-nerd factor that the top four prove. :-)

    The Stowaway is really cool.

    I had trouble with the steering on my copy of Race Fever. It got to the point where the game was no longer enjoyable. That's what kept it from making my list.

    Another one I should add is Graypaint.

    Graypaint has full 16 shade support (even on my VDX) , can create killer images, and best of all, IT'S FREE!


    I also LOVE Diddle! It was actually the first Palm app I ever installed off the internet on my IIIxe. Still have it!

    The Stowaway's an App?

    ATool
    PalmInfo
    PortaKitty (all the responsibility, none of the love ... too bad I can't have a real one, darn landlord)

    I'm also addicted to Pilomns at the moment.

    Not really directed at you, but there's a difference between a "killer app" and an app that "pushes the envelope". Traditionally, a 'killer app' is one which will drive sales of an item. IOW, spreadsheets were an early 'killer app' for PCs because once they were released, popularity and sales of PCs increased (along with spreadsheets obviously). The built-in applications along with the size were the original 'killer apps' for the Palms. People could ditch day planners for a smaller battery operated handheld device and still have all of their information. In that sense, a killer app would have to be something that really drove sales for a platform. Also, 'application' in this sense doesn't necessarily mean 'software program' but rather its more broad connotation of 'use' (as in 'use of technology', so yeah Yorick the Stowaway is an 'app' in this sense).

    It seems more like this post is looking for 'killer apps' in the 'kewl' sense of 'killer'.

    Right. Sorry, should have been more clear. I was trying to navigate the original intent of the thread (first post, "pushing the envelope"), and the thread's drift (killer apps). So I listed both the kewl, killer apps that I sue and the amazing, "shouldn't have fit on the handheld," Wordsmith.

    (at least I didn't make you say "bah!" )

    Well, I thought you were clear enough. Your post was just convenient to reply to.

    (at least I didn't make you say "bah!" )
    True. True.

    ****, I'm not sure I understand your comment. Olive Tree offers a free Bible reader, and about a dozen versions of the Bible for free. They do sell versions that are copyrighted, but you have a choice for freeware versions.

    That is why I support Olive Tree over other Bible programs. They do offer freeware selections. They also have the most translations.

    And they offer a daily Bible tracker program called BibleReadMe for free that links directly into their Bibles.

    Therefore, I feel that Olive Tree is doing an excellent job of being good stewards.

    Stupid Question, but how do you copyright the Bible?
    Isn't it considered Public Domain?

    I think you would copyright different translations of the Bible. Just a guess, though.

    Yep. Actually, I've heard that to copyright anything you have created/translated, you just put "Copyright, Year, Name," on the text, and BAM!, copyrighted. Or at least, it's almost that simple.

    Yes, different (modern) translations are copyrighted. The NIV (New International Version) is copyrighted by the Zondervan publishers and the International Bible Society. That is why Laridian must sell it at a higher price than the KJV (King James Version). They have to pay Zondervan a fee for every NIV Bible that they sell, whereas the KJV is public domain and no fee is necessary.

    Here is a link regarding the Bible apps discussion from 11/99. Craig, of Laridian's MyBible, goes into detail to explain the royalty fee associated with the NIV translation:

    "Let's compare the KJV and the NIV. There's a $10 royalty on the NIV (which, if you want to complain about price, that's a good place to start) and none on the KJV."

    Might I suggest that we move this worthy discussion to the Christian Software link:
