    There's got to be something you'd like to see...
  2. #2  
    Okay... Here's a couple:

    HP Terminal Emulator. There are several VT-100 telnet clients out there, but none for the (quite different) HP terminals. I recognize there isn't a huge market for this, so I would be willing to pay for it as much as $100. It would have to be pretty decent though, 24x80 (scrollable screen, a la the Osborne 1, is okay), 48x132 would be nice, Macros would be a big help.

    Cobol viewer/editor. The law is no editing locally (on PC's, etc.) at my main client, but when I get calls and don't have my laptop with me, it would be nice to be able to at least look at the code. VFS-enabled would be great, so I could keep the code on a CF card in a Matchbook Drive.

    I also would like to see an offline beam replacement. I haven't had time to really figure out how this would work, but basically, you would run this program, select an address, datebook event, memo, or other file (WordSmith file, MobileDB database, etc.) and then select who you want to "beam" it to. The next time you hotsync, it would be e-mailed to that person. The next time they hotsync, it would be loaded on their visor. Note: if you want to work on this, please let me help with the design. (I don't want any compensation other than a copy when it's done, but I do want it to come out right.)

    I would like to see a program that would allow me to keep DOT logs on my PDA. Irealize that this is a very specific application, but you asked.

    This could be done with a scripting/macro that records taps and stuff and plays it back. Then you could also use it for scheduled backups, hotsyncs, email retrieval, etc.

    Wait, I just read that a little more carefully. I still like the macro recording idea but what you are looking for is a Virtual beaming session that saves itself as a file that can be sent to someone else and virtually received/beamed utilizing the built-in beam import/export feature.

    Sounds like it would be a good utility to me.

    I like that idea too!

    The thing is, my wife and I both have visors. There are times when I enter an address or an event that she should know about but she's not there for me to beam them to her. Of course, I generally forget by the time we are together. ("Oh, btw, there's a party tonight I forgot to tell you about -- can we go?")

    What I would like is to be able, immediately after entering an event or phone number, to run a program and flag that event to be sent to her the next time I hotsync. The conduit would generate an e-mail message which would include an attachment containing the data. When she hotsyncs, the conduit on her machine would check for any incoming files and update her visor.

    of course, since she uses a Mac, there would have to be a Mac conduit in addition to the Win98 conduit I need. (And, since SuSE 7.2 looks so good, I might need a Linux conduit in the near future.)

    Yeah, I know, I'm dreaming...

    I'd like to see a good password storage database that has a refined interface AND a cross platform desktop companion application (Mac, Windows, and, ideally, Linux).

    Also, I need a program that reminds me to plug my parking meter.

    Y'know, I was just thinking that yesterday. You park your car, drop a quarter(s) in the meter, pull out your visor, and run MeterMinder (or somesuch). You get maybe 4 buttons: 15 Minutes, 30 Minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, plus a place to enter a custom time (48 minutes, say, for when you get a place that already has time on the meter.)

    Then at some number of minutes before the meter expires (you set this in prefs, perhaps with an option to override the default if you've parked a long way away), your visor starts beeping, buzzing, etc.

    Visor to sync with my Nokia phone directly.

    I realize that this is already possible indirectly, by syncing my Visor with Outlook (using software that came with Visor) and syncing my Nokia with Oulook (using software that came with Nokia PC Connectivity). But I like using my Palm Desktop, and I wish that I could sync the Nokia phone with my Visor directly as well as with the Palm Desktop so that I can sync to either.

    Or is there already a way to sync my Nokia to the Visor using both IR ports?

    yeah, i wrote that ...

    I would like to see a utility that would after a hotsync check for the presence of a list of files that are user entered and then move them to the memplug. This could be a specific file or a wildcard entry such as MP(for MemPlug)filename.pdb or specify the extension.

    This first utility is primarily for my plucker files. I have almost my entire network documentation that I've converted from Word html. Also several websites. Probably would do more but space is limited.


    Also I would like to see a conduit to install any file directly to the memplug. Pi folks have said its not a high priority now. My plucker files would be a key concern. Then I could run a routine on my PC checking for version of a file and have it sync to the card on next hotsync.

    If someone could do #1 I could live with it as long as the list could be like up to 100 files. These wouldn't hotsync every time. Also the destination directory would need to be custimizeable.

    How about a full-featured FTP client? LFTP is better than nothing, but it does have its shortcomings.

    This kinda falls under Springboard but what about a DVD player? Here's what you need:

    • Portable DVD (hereafter P-DVD) player similar to a portable CD player (i.e. no screen)
    • connector cable between P-DVD and Springboard module.
    • Earphone Jack in the P-DVD
    • Low Power drain player software on Visor


    I mean, why not? I know the screen resolution doesn't do the DVD justice but it would be the smallest player around. Think of the portability: Visor and portable CD/DVD player.

    just a brainstorm (or was the a burnstorm?)

    A simple program that would take the call history from the VisorPhone and allow you to export it to Memo or QuickSheet.

    Seems like it shouldn't be difficult, but I haven't seen one yet, and haven't had time to mess with it.

    Here ya go. It's called B'Alerted Phone (?):

    http://www.palmgear.com/software/sho...9&prodID=39741

    Still in beta development, but I downloaded it and tried it, it appears to work as advertised. It exports your phone calls into a memo (so I guess if your call list is more than 4k you're SOL), which isn't as good as an Excel-compatible format, but hey, at least it's something.

    We are doing some remodeling, and what I would like to see is a specialized database for this purpose.

    First, it would be a rather simple floorplan generator to allow you to make a map of your house (this would probably be on the desktop). In each room, you can record the size of windows, doorways, etc. and the placement of electrical, plumbing, cable hookups, etc. You could also record colors and patterns (scanned in patterns, etc.)

    The result would be a portable 'book' you could carry as you shop to help match colors, calculate how much paint or carpet, etc.

    I know I can do a lot of this with memo or a database, BugMe, SplashPhoto, etc., but I would love it to be more integrated and include some built-in calculators.
    Do what you can, with what you have, where you are at!

    I would like to have a program that enables you to download and install zipped Palm files using a modem, without using a PC, that works with OS 3.1. (Unless it's been done already....)

    and I wish that I could sync the Nokia phone with my Visor directly as well as with the Palm Desktop so that I can sync to either.
    I believe this should be possible via IR with GSMtool. It used to have another name and be freeware. Now it is shareware and a bit expensive, but it works fine with my Motorola. If I remember correctly, there should be no problem with Nokia phones.

    I'd like a way of scheduling an email for a later date. Meaning if I have to send on email message to xyz@ABCCompany.com 3 weeks from now, I would run this application and enter the message and the date/time to send.

    On the specified date, this application would place the message in my Mail visor's mail program outbox. The next time I HotSync, the message would be sent for me.
