Android version of List

I had nothing to do with the creation of this, but it seems to be a wonderful resource for people who’ve been “stuck” on PalmOS devices with plenty of List databases.

An Android application that mimics the functionality of List is available on the Android market. Look up ListDBA.

Internally it uses it’s own data format for storage, but has an import option that appears to properly consume List data files (.pdb).

Status of List

PalmOS is effectively a legacy system now.  I realize that the recently released PalmPre will have some form of compatibility layer, but I suspect there will be native Pre applications which have the same functionality (or at least if the BEST applications are emulated 68k apps, then the platform is in trouble).

The iPhone has really filled the gadget gap for most of the Treo users now (or they’ve got to a Blackberry).  I’ve very recently picked up an iPod Touch - and I may one day write some software for it, but I wouldn’t hold your breath.

I see that HanDBase is available on the iPhone - and it should be possible to convert your List format databases for use with it. If someone knows of a better database program for the iPhone, add a comment here and I’ll be happy to investigate and post my opinion.

From this point on - don’t expect another version of List for PalmOS.  There may be a future version for some other platform, but I don’t see that happening for literally years.  So it may be a long wait.

I will continue to host this site - and answer questions as best I can.

Not Forgotten… Really!

So I recently upgraded to a newer version of Wordpress, but it appears that that has broken my theme. The fix originally didn’t look easy, but after poking around a bit I was able to get things looking mostly correct.

While there haven’t been updates for a while - there hasn’t been a lot of traffic in terms of bugs or problems with List either.  I still get regular requests for a Windows Mobile version - the answer is still no plans for this.  Support for something cool like the iPhone is tempting, but I’m holding off until at least the 2nd generation of these before they are compelling enough to justify the cost.
