PalmOrb

PalmOrb is software that allows you to use your PalmOS device as an LCD status display for your computer. You can display system stats (such as CPU load graphs, CPU temperatures, free disk space), news alerts, stock indexes, WinAmp graphs, etc. It works by pretending to be (or emulating) a real LCD (a Matrix Orbital LK204-25). You can use existing software that expects a Matrix Orbital display.

        Release Notes: The LCD Smartie keyboard fix has been disabled by default. The next release is likely to be 1.0 and will be a repackage of Beta 3. Experimental build C has also been updated; it now allows the font to be selected and includes two large fonts that allow the LCD to almost fill the screen. Build C is likely to be the direction that PalmOrb will take after the 1.0 release.

            USB Palm support!


            USB Palms are supported on both linux and Windows.

            For USB support on Windows you will need LCD Smartie 5.3 alpha 3 or above, and PalmOrb alpha 2 or above.
