    I'm pretty sure iSpin will be cooperative multitasking, NOT preemptive multitasking.. IE: Programs can be in the process of running, but not all running at the same time. They are paused when pushed in the background.

    Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. So this will cause problems with any programs needing constant events to stay alive or do their work. Browsers would be fine, but this won't fix stuff like irc, IM, etc programs that need constant connectivity.

    Update: Spincore, iSpin

    According to some recent posts on TapTarget.com

    The developer has decided not to release the spincore standalone app because it is just hacking the API of the Palm OS but will offer no new iSpin features. So apparently he is integrating the iSpin launcher with spincore. He is therefore perfecting certain programs to be bundled with it such as a reg editor, native text doc support and a notepad, as well as some others.
    This is holding off the release but the spincore is nearly complete.

    I am afraid you are probably right, vaporware, iSpin itself isn't a bad launcher, though I prefer others, the idea of some sort of multitasking was neat though. Oh well.....

    Was that vaporware? Last time I smelled iSpin it smelled a lot worse.

    It appears the vaporware has been hermetically sealed.

    Hype + more hype + missed deadlines + lack of any read beta code + more excuses = vaporware

    .....because the Windows interface is so useful on a handheld device? Good grief. You should spend time making it work well rather than make it look like Vista.

    I remember back when 1src was a Sony Clie 'centric site there was a guy on there, from Israel IIRC. This guy said he was building a new OS/Launcher/Software thingy for the Palm world. He said it was gonna be all that and chatted it up incessantly.

    This iSpin reminds me of that situation. He talked and talked and talked and ClieSource went to 1src and he still talked it up. Over a year passed and nothing but some mockups done in mspaint.

    I am really not a cynical guy in person, but this makes me say tsk....I'll beleive it when I see it.

    Best of luck to the developer, but it seems he is more bent on making a desktop like experience on the palm then anything else. I use my palm because it is NOT like my desktop.

    Just my .02

    Have you even tried or experimented with the current iSpin?
    Its quite possibly the fastest launcher available.
    You can launch with or without stylus, it has a built-in Photo viewer, drag-n-drop support,recent launch list,Pocket Tunes support,multiple theme support,etc. etc
    All this for FREE with iSpin Lite

    The only option is upgrading to full iSpin for $7.95 it gives you custom backgrounds and the ultimate feature called "Resident Taskbar" a task bar that will pop up within any app, similar to Hi-launcher and Zlauncher's Quicklaunch.

    I tried it once.. It was the worst interface I've ever seen.. I had to scroll through a list of every application, or add applications to one single screen. If there was some other way to do things, it certainly wasn't obvious.

    I'll stay with ZLauncher, thanks.. if iSpin ever comes out with real multitasking that gives time to each running process so that network applications won't time out, etc, then I'll have to give it another look.

    EzRocker 1.2 and iSpin 1.8 the perfect combination

    EzRocker will put a "pointer" on your Palm that you can move around like the one on your PC all without the stylus. It gives you complete 5-way control in ANY APPLICATION! Works and looks INCREDIBLE! with iSpin. Just remember to hold down the the center button to toggle it on and off.

    EzRocker+iSpin will give your Palm a true "Mini Laptop" feel.

    iSpin 1.8
