Tungsten T3 may no longer be needed with StyleTap available

I rarely use my Palm Powered Tungsten T3 anymore and after reading about the latest update to StyleTap I think its days may actually be numbered. Most all of the applications I run on my T3 are now found in the Windows Mobile world, or at least an equivalent is available. One application that I have used my T3 for regularly and that forces me to take my T3 on salvage cases is the freeware Tide Tool program that gives me nice tide tables and graphs for pretty much the entire world. I just installed it on my Dell Axim X50v into StyleTap and it works like a charm, even in full high resolution fonts and colors.

Another application that should soon be on Windows Mobile that I miss is SplashBlog. I tried out this with StyleTap as well and while it does install fine and let me sync blogs, I cannot post new entries by selecting photos stored on my Windows Mobile device.

I’ll have to go through my T3 and see if there are any other Palm specific apps with no Windows Mobile equivalent that I would like to use. Having Tide Tool on my WM device now though makes it less and less likely the T3 will be traveling much more.

    Isnt Splash Blog availiable for WM devices too? That would get you down to one device they way you’d like.

    I believe they are working on a version for Windows Mobile devices since I just read in the Pocket PC Magazine that there is a new Camera API available in Windows Mobile 5.0 and they used SplashBlog as an example of an application using it. Thus, when Windows Mobile 5.0 devices come out then I am pretty assured of SplashBlog coming out as well for WM devices.

    Hey Matt. Darren from SmartMobileAssets.

    I am amazed at this software! I had NO IDEA this was out there and working so well. Excellent!

    I’ve actually moved on from the Palm OS and am using my PPC exclusively. I even sold my Tungsten E (gasp)!

    So are there limitations with this app? Are there certain kinds of software that just will not work?

    So when will you be renamed to Darth-PPC 🙂 Maybe PPC-solo…well doesn�t sound too good. Sad to see such a palmOS enthusiast leave the ship. Well, I guess MS is taking over, even thought Palm seems to have some new devices up it�s sleve…

    Oh, I won’t be leaving the Palm platform. I just personally prefer what Windows Mobile has to offer me at this time and will always keep at least one Palm device in my collection. I look forward to Cobalt and Palm Linux devices and will always give the platforms their fair shake before dismissing them.
