Aristotle Virtuousness Test for Palm OS v1.0

From the makers of the best seller Personality Psychology Pro.

CrazySoft has released another interesting title about ethics and virtues called Aristotle Virtuousness Test.

This program is a simple 11 step test which determines how much virtuous you are according to Aristotle. Who is Aristotle? I can't help you with that! This test should be done by someone who knows you very well. (E.g.: Family, partner, friend...) Don't do it yourself! After the test you will be given a score out of 100. Then you will be given detailed stats of what should be done to correct your flaws according to Aristotle.


    1. Courage
    2. Temperance
    3. Liberality
    4. Magnificence
    5. Pride
    6. Honour
    7. Good Temper
    8. Friendliness
    9. Truthfulness
    10. Wit
    11. Friendship
    12. Justice (Not used in the test)
  • Every word used in the test is explained by Aristotle¢s original text (Translated into English) E.g. here Aristotle explains Courage:
  • “Aristotle: (Nicomachean Ethics, 330 BC) VIRTUE: COURAGE
  • The man who exceeds in fear is a coward; for he fears both what he ought not and as he ought not, and all the similar characterizations attach to him. He is lacking also in confidence; but he is more conspicuous for his excess of fear in painful situations. The coward, then, is a despairing sort of person; for he fears everything. The brave man, on the other hand, has the opposite disposition; for confidence is the mark of a hopeful disposition...”

Aristotle Virtuousness Test for Palm OS is available here for $12.95.


Fabian Heuwieser has just released an app called SIM-Save which is a very intelligent program that adds a special Security-Feature to your Treo.

It alerts you via SMS or via a Phone Call that the SIM-Card in your Treo has be swapped. Through this you can track the thief who has stolen your Treo and inserted his own SIM-Card, because as soon as he has inserted his SIM, a SMS is sent to a predefined number of you choice including Information about him:

  • # ISMI-Number of the new SIM-Card
  • # Telephone Number of the new SIM-Card
  • # Signal Strength
  • # Batterylevel
  • # IMEI Number of the Phone

You do not want your Treo to be without that new Security-Feature! Some day you will need it, better to secure yourself against that now! It works on GSM-Phones. Please try the demoversion if it runs on your Treo! The screenshot is in german, but the program is in english.

Senet Deluxe

RoGame Software has recently updated Senet Deluxe to version 1.9.2.

Senet is an ancient Egyptian race game and the predecessor of our modern Backgammon. Many pictures of the game and artifacts have been discovered and are displayed in Museums around the world. The commonness of these finds indicates that the game was very popular in its time. Instead of dice knuckle bones and later flattened sticks were used and the game board itself often resembled a small chest on wooden legs with drawers for the game pieces and a small flat surface for throwing the sticks. Complete rules for Senet have to date not been found, but several educated guesses have been made - notably the Kendall and the Bell variants. Through symbology Senet also hints at the afterlife as seen from an Egyptian point of view. Squares 16, 26, 27, 28, 29, and 30 are commonly called the Houses of Rebirth, Happiness, Water, Three Truths, Re Atoun, and Horus. When the jump over the House of Water is not successfully made the players pawn is repositioned at the House of Rebirth. The same holds true when the player's piece is beaten on one of the last three fields. In such the game alludes to reincarnation and the journey of the dead. This is the first Palm implementation of this game.

You can get Senet Deluxe here for $9.95
