In this software roundup we've got some new apps like ToolboxToGo, Active Captain Mobile for Palm OS, and Face Contact. Plus there are some updated apps such as Bejeweled 2, Butler v4.71, ZoomBoard v2.0, and VITO AstroNavigator II.
iambic has released a brand new collection of applications for the Palm OS called ToolboxToGo!
ToolboxToGo is our brand new title for recent Palm OS based handhelds and smartphones, geared towards anyone wishing to have the ability of changing multiple contacts, meetings, tasks and memos' data at once.
The application includes five tools allowing to adjust contacts' capitalization, align phone number formatting, delete data based on creation date, apply numerous changes to any of the contact, meeting and task related fields, and remove tags from the item's note. Each facility is designed for fine grained selection of the pim items to which the changes will be applied and presents a list of records falling in the search criteria prior to moving forward with the updates.
We deliberately named it ToolboxToGo because we see a lot of parallels between what we�re offering and the types of helpful items a handyman or mechanic might carry along in his toolbox. In our ToolboxToGo you�ll discover five uniquely-designed tools that you may find you can't live without:
Contact Doctor Keeping contact names neatly organized and formatted while meeting people on the go can be hard. No worries. Just call on the Contact Doctor for help. The Contact Doctor can quickly perform multiple capitalization changes to the formatting of Contact-related fields.
Number Doctor If you like the Contact Doctor, you�ll love his associate, the Number Doctor. This tool allows you to make multiple changes to the display format of phone numbers for your Contacts. No more worrying about having to go back and make sure the numbers look consistent (dashes, parentheses, etc.). The Number Doctor has you covered.
Wish the purging feature provided in your Calendar or Task application had something more? We know the feeling, so that�s why we created Date Sweeper. Don't purge. Sweep!
Our Date Sweeper makes it easy to make bulk deletions. This handy tool not only saves time, but it also helps freeing up your device�s memory since it will no longer be cluttered with useless data.
Heavy Lifter How can a task that�s so easy to do on a desktop be such a challenge on a mobile device? We�ve been wondering the same thing, and that�s how Heavy Lifter came about.
It can be used to perform multiple changes to various fields and/or properties of your Calendar, Contact, Task and Memo entries.
Tag Cleaner Now you have a swift way to reclaim the Notes area of your Meetings, Tasks, Contacts and Memos. By using the handy Note Tag Cleaner, the tags (text created and referenced by Agendus) can be removed with one clean sweep.
Note: Removing a tag will unassign the item to the Meeting, Task, Contact or Memo (i.e. removing an icon tag will set the icon field for that item to 'None.').
If you frequently utilize Agendus extras such as icons, alarms, photos, etc., this is the perfect tool to have for performing mass unassigning.
This sounds like a very handy and complete package for the Palm OS!

Active Captain Mobile for Palm OS, by ActiveCaptain, became available on March 12th. ActiveCaptain Mobile combines free access to thousands of NOAA charts and powerful navigation tools with a wealth of information from the ActiveCaptain website. Access to over 30,000 ActiveCaptain points of interest markers displayed on actual NOAA charts available in the palm of your hand.
With the addition of a data plan for the mobile phone, ActiveCaptain Mobile provides access to the ActiveCaptain website, an online visual marine database designed around cruisers sharing knowledge with other cruisers. The website has over 6,000 registered users and over 30,000 marinas, boatyards, anchorages, and local knowledge markers. Download markers and they are displayed directly on the NOAA chart providing a living electronic guidebook.
Add a GPS and ActiveCaptain Mobile becomes a powerful, portable chartplotter which can track your location, offering a backup to onboard navigation systems, a portable navigation solution for the dinghy or onshore use, or simply a secondary navigation option for a different view.
ActiveCaptain Mobile is being released on the Palm OS platform today. A Windows Mobile version is nearing completion and an Apple iPhone version will follow later in the year.
According to Jeffrey Siegel, co-founder of ActiveCaptain, "The new Centro is the perfect mobile device for today's cruiser. The Centro will allow you to access email and do light Internet web browsing - things like NOAA weather, Google searching, and tide information. It accepts high capacity memory cards to add gigabytes of memory if needed. Its bright, clear screen displays the NOAA charts beautifully. And with several cell providers offering a Centro for free with a data plan, the price is right."
The Going Mobile section of the ActiveCaptain website offers a free trial demo, video tutorials, and access to the online reference manual.
ActiveCaptain Mobile is available here for $49.95.
