Propel for Palm OS v2.12

Propel, by iambic, is the ultimate launcher for your Palm OS powered PDA or smartphone and has been updated to version 2.12! If you have a Treo, try Propel and you'll be amazed at how snappy and straightforward launching applications, finding your contacts and keeping in touch will be. Once you start using it, you'll wonder how you ever did without it.

Find Everything Easily
With Propel, you don't need to scroll down the page to open applications, take multiple steps to search for contacts, or fumble to find your newest memo. With one tap or one keyword, Propel filters out possibilities for you.
Propel can launch anything from applications, meetings, contacts, memos, mp3s, bookmarks and even files directly from your memory card. If autolaunch is activated, Propel will automatically launch your application once it narrows your search to one item.

Organized Landing View
Propel offers different ways to display your landing view for search optimization. To browse programs or contacts specifically, chose either the Applications or Contacts view. This way, you reduce scrolling by only looking at files that are of interest to you.
For specific searches, do a keyword look-up through the Power User view. The Power User view aggregates all your files together for a comprehensive search throughout data such as applications, contacts, memos, and bookmarks.
Each of these views can be seen in list or icon mode for a compact or expanded visual view of your data.

More Convenient Features:

  • Convenient Toolbar - On the bottom of each screen is a convenient toolbar that enables you to navigate quickly through most used applications. Change between different views, go to favorites, beam data, move items to main memory or memory card, and send items to trash can all with one tap of your stylus.
  • Favorites List - Find and access most used items quickly by adding them to your favorites list.
  • Category Tabs - Propel organizes items into different category tabs so you can quickly find anything just by glancing at your screen. Drag and drop items into categories to manually organize them. You can also add, edit, or hide categories such as Games, Utilities, Multimedia, etc.
  • Drag and Drop - Propel offers complete organization through drag and drop. Drag and drop any files you want deleted, beamed, moved to main memory or memory card, moved to a different tab, add to favorites, and more.
  • Voice Launching (Professional Edition)
  • Voice launch any item on your device. Anything you can launch by hand you can do by voice. Voice launch applications on your SD card, bookmarks, mp3s, emails, memos, contacts, SMS and more.

Propel offers a wide array of customization options. Under preferences, you can change your views, determine how your files are displayed, which software to open specific files with, add or delete favorites, and much more.

Make Propel yours today and experience the ease of launching files and find them on the fly on your Treo smartphone.
