PalmSource creates Expert Guides
PalmSource announced the Palm Powered "Expert Guides," a comprehensive directory of Palm OS applications, online resources, e-books and user stories. Volunteer users from the Palm OS community have lent their expertise and industry knowledge to create 35 Palm Powered Expert Guides, with another 25 in development. With more than 21,000 applications available today for Palm Powered smart mobile devices, the Expert Guides offer users a central online tool to customize and extend the usability of their device based on specific areas of interest that include medicine, real-estate, religion, food and wine and many others.

"Many people are not aware of the versatility of Palm Powered handhelds and smartphones," said Michael Mace, chief competitive officer of PalmSource, Inc. "We believe the Expert Guides not only offer users a great resource to learn what they can do, but the guides also provide exposure for our Palm OS software developers, who have created some of the most innovative and useful products in the industry."

Expert Guides include:
  • Interests: Astronomy, careware, emergency preparedness, food & wine, fun and weird software, games, genealogy, health & wellness, home management, interactive fiction, knitting, music creation, new users, parenting, and religion (Christianity, Judaism, and LDS).
  • Professions: Dentistry, engineering, legal, medicine, psychology, real estate, sales, students, and teaching.
  • Tools: Browsers, calendars, credit card processing (to let retailers charge credit cards on the go), databases, emulators, short and instant messaging, e-mail, time tracking tools (for consultants and other hourly workers), and word processing.

    PalmSource is encouraging new experts to apply for the development of additional topics, including: auto care, gardening, hiking/outdoors, military, music listening, additional religions (i.e. Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism), sports and spreadsheets.
