Other stuff you can do with older Palms
With Alex cooking up some new Palm OS goodness I thought it might be worth writing about some of the other applications that are still around that can be used for older Palm units.
AxisPad is a great app that’s really for OS5 but works in OS4 (just about). Another similar application is MixPada MIDI mixer for palm (again from miniMusic). BeatPad and NotePad are also excellent OS4 applications that’ll work with OS5 too.
Burrito, Egg-Demo, Hedgehog, Meedy, Tractor are all demo type applets from Capers which was meant to be a replacement music based OS for Palm units which never saw the light of day sadly. I’ve been hassling Brian Whitman about it for months, but I doubt we’ll ever see Capers turn up even though Brian did hint at it on his blog. All the applets are available at the Palm Sounds site.
Anyway, to finish off here are a few more. Piezo Power an OS4 early sound application. Theremini Theremin precursor to AxisPad, and you can also find his C source for MIDI in Palm applications. ittyMIDI Player is a MIDI file player, ittyMIDI Drummer is a MIDI Drum Machine, and ittyMIDI SysEx Manager is a universal SysEx dump utility for the Palm OS. How cool is that!
Anyway, I hope this lot is of some use. There used to be lots more OS4 stuff around, but sadly most of it has dropped off the internet now.
So I’ll look forward to Alex’s new Palm software soon.
