I wish there was anti-aliased pen lines in these kinds of programs; like in Windows Mobile's Notepad drawing.

The lines would look smoother, more natural and more legible.

Strange the programmers have not thought of that.

can Palm even do that? AFAIK, ClearType used by WinXP on LCDs monitors actually changes the pixels so they display 2 colors at once..... or something in those lines. With a low res device, maybe, but it doesn't seem feasible with hi-res devices since the pixels are at least 3x smaller than on monitors.

And if possible, please PM me after u reply. Really wish we get notifications on these news threads

Palms can do it. Give Fontsmoother a whirl someday; it looks great.

I apologise for any and all emoticons that appear in my posts. You may shoot them on sight.

Looks pretty cool but...

I'm finding it harder and harder to spend money on Palm applications. In my eyes the future of Palm is starting to look bleak and I have to ask myself is it worth it? In days gone buy I'd have no problem spending $45 for these two programs but now I question how long would they be useful? How much longer are we going to be "blessed" with Garnet and will this software work on whatever replaces it?

Maybe I'm a little paranoid but I can't be the only one who feels this way. Am I?

I can understand your concern, but I actually feel kind of the opposite way. Browsing the usual sites for the latest Palm software, I sense that there are fewer and fewer novel applications for the Palm. I see a lot more software tailored toward Treos (I won't even consider a Treo until it gets a larger screen) and the usual glut of specialized databases, but little truly innovative Palm software. I remember way back when, right after the original Pilot was introduced and programmers were just starting to write third-party software - almost every day brought software that introduced new capabilities to the PDA.

I've been in touch with a couple of developers about adding new features to their Palm software, and they seem more in a "wait and see" mode about what happens to the Palm platform before they invest any more time and effort. They definitely have a lot more to lose continuing to develop for a sinking platform than I do investing in a few Palm applications. It's really a vicious circle that will continue until Palm sends a very clear message what will happen to the platform.

I'd still be happy to pay for well-written applications that add more functionality to my Palm. In the worst case scenario (say, Palm going completely belly up), I'd buy a few more Palms to keep me going until another good PDA platform came along. I plan on using Palm PDAs for the foreseeable future, so I'm OK with continuing to invest in Palm software.

Now to go install and try out this software...
