It works like the registered version for a week, then disables functionality in everything except bible-reading programs. Not sure if it nags you too.

It's a great program, with version 2 you don't need to use a separate hack manager, and the author doesn't churn registered users (buy it once, upgrades are always free). Nice.

This kind of thing should be standard...

FontSmoother looks fantastic and works perfectly with (nearly) every app. Be warned: if you do install the trial, you'll find it very hard to go back to looking at the standard Palm system fonts once it's over.

Used in conjunction with PalmRevolt ( you'll find your Palm looks (almost) as modern as any WinMob device.

Personal recommendations: 14pt Arial as the general system font, Trebuchet MS 13pt for the Phone app. It doesn't play very nicely with AvantGo or Blazer.

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

Tim, where do you find the arial 14 point. I checked in all the folders and couldn't find it. Do you have another source somewhere?

You just make it from your own Windows fonts, linds. Pretty easy:

1) Go to wherever you installed Fontsmoother (usually C:\Program Files\Fontsmoother).

2) Run Quick Make Font.exe

3) Pick your font and size.

4) Abracadabra... You now have fresh new fonts in the Fontsmoother_fonts folder. Hotsync away.
