Comments on: Quickies: Pilot Install 2.0, Qvadis Express Reader Pro 2.0

envi.con has released Pilot Install 2.0. This freeware tool allows you to install Palm software much faster than HotSyncing and now offers the ability to put images on a user's Palm. Every picture comes with its own tiny built-in viewer and can be looked at immediately on the device. Images can be beamed to other users' Palms, who can also use the viewer app. In addition, this new version offers enhanced capability to convert and send documents only fly from a PC to a handheld, like text to doc, midi to alarm etc.

Qvadis has released version 2.00 of Express Reader Pro, an e-text reader.

Pilot Install - direct from Web

This release of Pilot Install, like its worthy predecessors, says it supports direct installation of apps from the Web, and it gives an example site. But I haven't found anyplace (PalmGear, Handango, etc.) that supports this feature. Am I missing something?

Not only that Pilot Install enables direct download from the web, the software installation is as simple as one should expect it from Palm. It should come with the Palm and PalmOS Software with the PIA system. Great solution.

Viewer bloat?

Does each photo come with a viewer? There's no info on weither or not if you add pics they get merged into an existing viewer.

I played around with this a bit. I put a 4 KB image on my Palm IIIx and it ballooned up to 32 KB but I can live with that. I put a 140 KB picture on which showed up at 165 KB. The pictures look OK, any limitations are mostly ones of my screen. The pics aren't reduced that I could tell so you might be looking at a small window on a large picture.
