iPhony Launcher for Palm OS

iPhony - Palm OSMo from SimToGo has released a small iPhone like launcher utility for Palm OS devices called iPhony. Mo writes, "Of course it is just for fun (Launcher app) and it is not completly done yet but the way I see it is that I have until June 2007 to finish the application! Of course it is FREE so enjoy!."

iPhony is a very basic launcher, you can assign any of the onscreen buttons to a Palm OS program and also navigate the icons using the 5-way. Right now it only supports 320x320 pixel screens.

Update:
iPhony is no longer available due to a legal complaint from Apple Inc. However, a similar application with many more features has been released called TouchLauncher.

That's fun. Apple does do especially well with eye-candy. I blew off some time yesterday starting to make a iPhone iconset for ZLauncher. Copy/pasting their icons is the easy part. Making original icons for the stuff that's missing for the rest of Palm's included apps is a bit harder. I suppose it'd be easy for someone who actually knows how to use a drawing program and has some creative ability (which is not me).

I'm still waiting for the mythical color HandEra.

LOL, I love it. Now I can just glue an 8GB SDHC card inside, find a wifi cradle and it's an iPhone!

There is a lawyerly-significant difference between a criminal situation and a civil situation.

rad, sorry, but not being an iPhony user, I won't be much help in resolving your problem. Maybe someone else can.

However, if you can't get it resolved, and if you are looking for an alternative, you can try the "xPhone" ZLauncher skin: http://www.1src.com/freeware/fileinfo.php?id=1672
Although not it's not a "perfect copy", you can make it look quite close to what you see on an iPhone with the options in ZLauncher.

Want an alternative? Try this: http://www.ubuntu.com/ or http://www.mepis.org/
