This software from Data Becker is a compilation of freeware and shareware productivity, entertainment, reference, and development programs for the PalmOS. The first problem is the CD-Rom is compatible with only Windows 95/98/ME. Many Palm users often use work-issued laptops or desktops to synchronize with the Palm and these are usually connected to a network using Windows NT, 2000, XP.

The interface does make it easy to search the 500 programs and load them onto the PDA. Just select the program from the list and press the "install" button. This will open up your "Install to Palm" program and add it to the queue for the next time you sync with the PDA. This is a time saver for those users who are new to downloading files, unzipping them, and adding them to the PDA.

If you decide to use shareware programs from the CD-Rom, you'll have to plop down more cash to get a registered copy. I can download these programs from Internet for free. It took about five minutes to find the exact or similar programs on the web.

One of the programs froze my Palm and I had to do a hard reboot to clear the screen. This isn't the first time this has occurred in using a shareware program, but you'd think Data Becker would've tested these programs before selecting them for the bundle.

Be warned that at least 400 files are text files such as TV episode guides and outdated sports schedules. Save your money and use the Web to get what you need.
