Palm software

June 15th, 2006 — Wordman

Since my wife has given her old Palm device to my sister, I thought it would be a good time to post a list of recommended Palm software in the same vein as my earlier Mac OS X recommendations. If you have something you enjoy using, let me know about it.

Those who know me realize that I’m into role-playing games. My game of the moment is Exalted. Like most games, software exists to manage characters and so on. The best of the breed for Exalted right now is Anathema, a java-based system for which I have kind of defaulted to be the “Mac release guy”. Basically, I’m responsible for turning releases into double-clickable Mac applications.

Doing this with Java applications is easier than I expected, though presently Anathema is fairly non-Mac looking. I’m looking to change that, if possible. Having never done much Java development specific to the Mac, I’ve been logging my experiences from initial check out of code on in an Exalted-based forum. I don’t have a lot of time to tinker, especially since my laptop drive died (again), but I’ll continue posting there as long as I can stand it.

And, if you are a Mac-using player of Exalted, please download the Mac package and let me know if it has any problems.
