Plucker is an offline Web and eBook viewer for Palm OS-based handheld devices and PDAs. It comes with Unix/Linux tools and conduits, and Windows and Mac OS X conduits that let you decide exactly what part of the Web you want to view on your PDA (as long as it's in standard HTML or text format). The requested Web pages are processed, compressed, and transferred to the PDA for viewing by the Plucker viewer.
Font Collector collects fonts in many PalmOS font formats and converts them to a number of other formats. This allows use of pre-OS5 fonts on OS5 units and vice versa, and many other things. It requires PalmOS 3.5 or later. Supported inputs include fonts hidden within applications, Fonts4OS5, FontSubst, FontHackV, Fonthack, iSilo, PalmBible+, Plucker, Font Bucket, and system fonts. Supported outputs include Fonts4OS5, FonFontSubst, FontHackV (these three only under OS5), PalmBible+, Plucker, iSilo, Mobipocket, and Fonthack. The freeware version works for PalmBible+, Plucker, and iSilo output. The shareware version works for all other outputs.
PalmFontConv is a collection of command-line utilities to manipulate Palm fonts in both v1 and v2 formats. Currently, there is a converter that converts between afnx, nfnt (low, high, or both densities), NFNT, and text editable formats, and another converter that converts Type 1/TrueType/BDF/PCF and other formats supported by FreeType2 into the text editable format, code for generating Plucker and PalmBible+ compatible anti-aliased fonts. There are also a bunch of GUI shells for generating font packages for Plucker, PalmBible+, Fonts4OS5, and FontSubst.
Sitescooper automatically retrieves the stories from news websites, trims off extraneous HTML, and converts them into Plucker, iSilo, or Palm DOC format for later reading on-the-move. It will avoid stories you've already read, and can handle virtually any news site on the Web. Support for over 300 sites is included. Even if you don't have a handheld, it's still handy for simple website-to-text conversion.
Movie Guide is a custom channel for offline Web browsers such as AvantGo, iSilo, or Plucker. It was designed to provide you with detailed listings of all films showing in cinemas across the UK and the United States. Movie Guide is an alternative to the "Showtimes" application on the Palm Pilot. Since it generates HTML pages which can be used by any offline Web browser, Movie Guide can be used on Palm Pilots, Pocket PCs, WinCE, and Symbian devices.
