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.
