There are different ways that PdaReach can be useful:
For Business use: Demonstration and Training - If you ever need to present anything on your Palm with your
will be the perfect tool to use. It comes with enlarge mode and a full screen theater mode which is ideal
for projecting the Palm screen. For this reason, Palm uses PdaReach as a marketing tool and a training tool
at very different occasions.
Another useful feature from PdaReach is the support for taking screen shots, with or without
any Palm skins. You can easily save any Palm screen to a image file on disk.
Palm actually uses this feature to build their training materials.
PdaReach comes with skins for almost all Palm OS 5 devices. You can visit the
Skin Repository and add additional skins for your favorite look and feel.
For personal use: Convenience and Efficiency - PdaReach will display the real-time
content of your Palm screen on the PC and you can use the
mouse and keyboard to interact with it. This is an extremely handy and efficient way to operate
your Palm device.
example, PdaReach displays a floating popup editor on Windows, allowing you to change any text fields on the
device, even copying/pasting text from other Windows applications. There are also a lot of
shortcuts built in so that you can perform certain actions as easy as pressing one button (e.g. Ctrl-S to launch HotSync
or F1~F4 to invoke the app buttons).
PdaReach will try to turn off - or dim, depending on the kind of
device you have - the PDA screen while allowing you to interact with it
from the PC -- a great way to conserve battery power on your PDA when it is in use.
If you need to install a single Palm application (.prc or .pdb file) to your device, just drag-and-drop
that file to the PdaReach window and it will be installed immediately. HotSync is not needed.
There are a lot more convenient and interesting things you can do with PdaReach.
