PalmUser magazine has posted Working with AvantGo, a detailed overview and tutorial for the AvantGo service. The article is in PDF format. -Steve Litchfield

DTMF Dialer for Clié 1.0 is a freeware app that uses the enhanced speaker on the Sony T and NR series to generate the DTMF (Dual Tone Multi-Frequency) tones needed to dial a telephone. The user holds the Clié next to any phone and the app dials the phone number. -Ed

envi.con has released a new version of Pilot Install, which installs apps, data, and pictures quickly on a PalmOS handheld. The new version offers the option to instal directly to the expansion card. Pilot Install is free. Pilot Install PLUS is $15 and addresses professional and business users with synchronizing over network connections and improved image conversion. It can also install apps directly out of a ZIP file without opening it. -PR

Avantgo w/Jog Wheel

How can you use the Jog Wheel with Avantgo. I can scroll up/down but I it won't highlight the articles so I have to use my stylus. It seems as though I should be able to use Avantgo w/out a stylus. Any ideas?

Also, is there any way to change how much the jog wheel scrolls? I read too fast for line by line scrolling to really be useful continuously turning the wheel gets old pretty fast.

Its support of JogWheel is useless. What I did is I install PowerJOG and uses "PowerUP" under Avantgo, and this will make a scroll equals to a page up/down.

But is there an AvantGo conduit for Palm Desktop 4.0 for Mac OS X yet, and how can one learn when one does become available?

DTMF Dialer

This is the kind of "small" enhancements that Palm has always refuse to provide. Hey, Palm guys, where the $%&/ is a decent speaker in your PDA´s? How on earth do you guys dare to talk about Arm processors and desktop integration if can´t (or won´t) give a useful speaker? For heaven´s sake, raise your head and listen to your customers!
