Vote in the HanDBase Applet Contest

DDH Software has selected five finalists in its contest looking for the best custom-designed applets for its HanDBase database application. Now that the judges have spoken, it is up to the voting public to choose the winner of the $1,000 grand prize. Users of HanDBase were asked to create applets to help them in their personal or professional lives and submit them to the company's online gallery of free, downloadable applets. The ballot is now online and will remain available until January 15. Winners will be announced January 31.

The five finalists, selected by a panel of judges, are:

  • Ward Memo, created by Welan Lin, lets healthcare professionals track their patients' personal information, including medical history, medications, lab work, etc.
  • Work Days, created by Kevin McCord, helps professionals who must keep track of time, expenses, mileage or telephone calls for reimbursement or billing purposes.
  • Exercise Log Suite, created by Fran Tonello, is a general-purpose exercise log that allows users to calculate health-target information for each exerciser and the amount of calories each exerciser has burned.
  • Project Tracker, created by Brad Pippert, provides project managers with a set of databases that can be used to track tasks, costs, and resources related to a project.
  • PC Manager, created by Eduardo Rocha, is an inventory and activity/time-tracking applet for those who work as IT consultants or in computer service, repair and maintenance. Users can input descriptive information and log every activity related to each computer, including setup, maintenance and updates.
David Haupert, DDH Software's president and CEO, said "During the contest period, we received 279 new database solutions, increasing the size of our gallery to well over 600 applets. Some of these submissions were simple, while others were quite complex, and all of them were designed to solve a host of challenges faced by their creators. Our customers have demonstrated that HanDBase is one of the most well-designed applications for the Palm-flexible, powerful, and simple to use."
