The Constitution of the United States


A friend of mine and I were talking the other day about some worthwhile documents we have on our PDA device for casual reading and the subject of "The Constitution" came up. Neither of us had a copy, and had never seen a copy available for Palm OS devices, so I decided to make one available. It was quite easy finding the original text on the Internet, thanks to some great search engines, and equally as easy to convert that text to the Palm OS 'doc' format using "MakeDoc for Windows" by Mark Pierce. So now that I've made it available, you've run out of excuses to not know the original intentions of our founding forefather's plan for a "Government by The People, and For The People." Incidentally, I use WordSmith for all my viewing pleasures, but there are several others available.

Tracker:


Tracker screenshot Born out of a need to keep abreast of what the latest tropical depression/tropical storm/hurricane is doing, I created Tracker, a Palm OS application for keeping up with the whereabouts of the latest storm.
Being that I am a Florida resident, the map covers the Atlantic basin with a displayable area of 10 - 50 degrees latitude and 60 - 100 degrees longitude. You can enter wind speed using MPH or knots and pressure using either inches of mercury or millibars. The category of the storm can be automatically determined from the wind speed. On the map, the different category strengths are repesented by different colors.

QuickTip:


QuickTip screenshotA handy-dandy Palm OS device application for calculating tips on anything. But especially useful after you, or perhaps a group of people, have consumed vast quantities of food and the ol' brain isn't working to its full capacity. Version 5.0 with an improved User interface: There is a drop-down list for the amount and one for the group. You can enter either of these values using the appropriate drop-down list or graffiti. There is a tax field where you can enter the local tax rate or leave it set at zero. There is also a way to enter your own tip rate which is described in the accompanying readme file. QuickTip also supports the Palm OS number format.
Still simple, still fast, and still the best.

And you'll be on your way to quickly generating appropriate tip amounts on your next night out on the town!

SameGame:


SameGameYears ago I saw the SameGame being played on a personal computer and decided there needed to be a Palm OS version. So this is my attempt to duplicate the play. The SameGame is very addictive and you never really win, you can only try and do better the next time you play.

Scoring is according to the formula n^2 - 3n + 4, where n is the number of blocks to clear. Therefore, a long string of adjacent blocks will score much better than a number of short strings.

A score hall of fame retains your high scores and also shows the number of pieces left over. The total number of games you have played is shown on the main screen. You can also show the time or a game timer on the main screen.

PocketLife:


PocketLifePocketLife is my implementation of the Game of Life for Palm OS devices. Keep reading to learn more and then download your copy to "Get a Life" of your very own. The Game of Life is not your typical computer game, it is a "cellular automaton," and was invented by Cambridge mathematician, John Horton Conway. His original intention was to model the process of birth, survival, and death. The idea behind this is that organisms require others in order to survive and procreate. But as the Game of Life progresses, other problems arise, such as overcrowding, which in the end, often results in death.
