You support Palm OS; however, Palm has made it clear that there will never again be another handheld operating on that platform. They are switching exclusively to WebOS. Why would anyone go out and buy a product with an OS that is being discontinued? So with that in mind, do you have plans to develop your software on WebOS or is it too soon to say? I know the SDK isn't widely available yet, but something more than a canned answer would be helpful for a prospective customer like myself.Hello,
We are always trying to support as many platforms, PDA's, etc. as possible. We can't guarantee anything and your best bet is to buy a device to run what you want to use, not buy a device and then see what you can use. Please refer to the APDL requirements section which outlines the Palm OS and Windows Mobile requirements and also take advantage of our try-before-you-buy free trials/downloads prior to purchasing your licenses.
Traditional "legacy" Palm OS applications AND devices will be around a long time. If you want to use our software then I suggest buying a device that fits the requirements of our products. There are great Palm OS devices to choose from today that will last you years to come. At the moment our development priority is on the new PC edition of Logbook Pro and then we will develop the PDA line of products and work as hard as possible to support everything out there including iPhone, Palm PRE, BlackBerry, etc. Until then I can't promise anything but it is certainly my goal to support everything possible. But "today" you know the requirements for our products and new PDA programs are not coming out anytime soon. What we have works great, achieves the purpose and you have a very wide range of devices on the market to choose from in order to run the software you need to enjoy what these products accomplish for you.Why would anyone go out and buy a product with an OS that is being discontinued?
