There are, unequivocally, two types of people: those who used Palm OS and those who wished they had.
For a lot of people, PalmOS was the platform. From handheld digital assistants to early Treo smartphones, Palm devices were some of the first that showed us that we could “do” on the move. Thus, plenty of tech heads fought tears when HP officially pulled the plug on PalmOS successor WebOS last year.
For people who moved on to iOS, Symbian, Windows Mobile — and now Android — you can relive your Palm days.
For a price, that is.
For a touch under $50, you can get in on StyleTap emulator, which promises to run a lot of PalmOS legacy apps that don’t require conduit syncing. While this has been available on iOS and others for a while, Android users just got an invite to join the party.
What does it mean? It means that if you have an old Palm application or two, you might be able to run it on StyleTap. Better yet, if the developer marks his/her app with the StyleTap logo (as these are), it is guaranteed to work.
And StyleTap gives you 14 days to try the app for free to check the rest of your old library.
