What a great product with great Customer Service

This is by far the best photo viewing software I have ever used on my Palm. Now it is even better. I have 48 images on my SD card and it takes less than 10 seconds to load them all. With PowerRun, It took closer to a minute. The image quality is superb, and you can crop and zoom in on parts of a photo with no noticable loss in quality...up to a point.

I had a problem where SplashPhoto would not show the pictures on the SD card once I exited and restarted the program. I tried every trick I knew to get it to work. The pictures were still on the card, McFile showed them. I emailed SplashData and they responded right away. After a couple of follow-up emails from them asking me questions about what exactly it was doing, they said they would continue to look into it. A couple of hours later, they released version 2.51, which resolved the problem.

Once again a great company, with a great product, with great customer service.


It's nice to see a company post its own reviews...

PowerRUN was not the right tool anyways. For large
data files, MsMount works much better.

I do not work for the company. I meant every word that I wrote in the above comment. I had a problem, they helped me. I know that seems hard to believe in todays society. I stand by my words. Great product. Great Customer Service.

Has anyone used one of these Brando protectors yet? WriteRights did not work for me, felt like I was writing on swimming pool vinyl, and I did not want to waste more money now that I have a different device.

I too have been unhappy with other screen protectors, and I just ordered the Brando one. I'll post my initial reaction here as soon as I get it in.

Support for high resolution

SplashPhoto is a nice tools for view photograph in Palm platform as it supports 16-bit color. However, as a Clie user, I hope that it supports the high-res (320x320) as well. Wondering whether next version will support that?

If you like WriteRights but don't like the writing on vinyl feel, get a pack of the WinCE/PocketPC WriteRights. They fit my Visor and Palm III screens fine (Palm V and m100 users are out of luck, I guess...) and they have a smooth surface. Dunno why they decided to make the Palm version with a textured surface...
