  • Style Tap…is there really any reason to stay with Palm OS?

    Style TapYou may have heard of Style Tap by now. It’s a piece of software that runs on your Windows Mobile device, but is a Palm OS emulator. That’s right, you can run your Palm OS apps on your Windows Mobile Treo (or any other Win Mob device).

    So, with the impending end of the Palm OS, and the questionable future of Palm Linux…and with Microsoft (dare I say) innovating on the new Windows Mobile 6, I have to ask…
    …Why would anyone want to stick with Palm OS?

    If Style Tap does what it claims, I will be able to run Pocket Tunes, ChatterEmail, and Handy Finance on a Windows Mobile 6 device. My main reason for not moving to Windows Mobile 6 yet is (1) there isn’t yet a Treo that has Win Mob 6 (2) I don’t want to give up my three favorite Palm OS apps.

    Style tap seems like it will solve that, and allow me to stick with an OS developer (Microsoft) with plans long-term plans to continue to innovate its OS. Not a company that just releases device after device (Treo 650, 700p, 755p) with the same ol’ stale OS .

    It makes sense to me. What about you?

    • hmmm didn’t know anything about this app. I just loved the simple interface of that “same ol’ stale OS.” and haven’t bothered to play around much with the mobile 6
