Well, hopefully Akismet will help the spam situation - I just spent a good part of an hour deleting spam comments, not the best use of my time. Allowing folks to post comments is one of the unexpected benefits to moving from a static website (the old one) to one that is based on the WordPress blog software - I really do appreciate the feedback.
Not a lot of time to spend poking at the List software lately, I’m still looking to find someone with a Treo or similar who has repeatable test scenarios that exhibit bad behaviour of List - please contact me if you do.

“Yes, List is still supported” — This is a question I’ve answered many times over the last few years(!) since I updated the website. I still get email on a regular basis asking me questions about the program.
I’ve now moved the List website from its old location at magma.ca to lowtek.ca. This also has allowed me to move to a wordpress based site which will make updates much easier. Hopefully this will result in the website staying a bit more current than one update every few years.
List 1.1.0 adds support for the 5way navigation that is used in current PalmOS devices. My personal Palm device is an old PalmV so all of the testing has been done on the simulator. The editing pages do not play nice with the 5way navigation (yet) and due to the switch in tooling I don’t support the other languages (at least not in this version). Visit the download page to get List.
While I intend to continue to support List, I’m not sure that I’ll be adding very many features - if I add any at all. I will continue to keep the simple and (hopefully) intuiative design, List will do what it does well on as many Palm devices as I can manage.

List is still an ‘active’ project. I’m currently working on the SDCard support, as well as updating List to work flawlessly with all versions of PalmOS. The 0.99 version was created around the release of PalmOS 3.5, it still works on later versions of the PalmOS, but some of the new features (like SDCard storage) are not fully compatible.If you want to use List on a Palm device with an SDCard or other external memory, as long as you put List in the main Palm memory you’ll be fine. This will be addressed with the next version of List.
