How to Run Palm Programs on a Pocket PC
Many of us are migrating to Pocket PC/Windows Mobile PDAs and abandoning the good old faithful Palms.
The only problem is that we have at least 2-3 beloved and well trusted Palm-only programs that just do not work on Pocket PC. "No more tears!" as Ozzy Osbourne sings, there is a solution.
StyleTap is a new application for Windows Mobile that enables you to run Palm software on Windows PDAs. You can download a free 14-day trial version. The full program is $ 30.
iSilo for Pocket PC
This program will allow you to run some of the best Palm tools on your Pocket PC. Palm Brain for Easy Interpretation of EKGs (download here) and the UCSF Hospitalist Handbook are just a few free Palm programs that work seamlessly on Windows PDAs with the new iSilo ($ 20).
