Reset Doctor

Hobbyist Software has updated Reset Doctor to v1.85.

Reset Doctor helps you to deal with crashes in modern Palms. It contains:

Tools to help you reduce crashes Tools to help you track down what applications are buggy and causing crashes Auto backup to save your preferences when the palm inexplicably decides to delete them at a reset!

100% Guarantee: If for any reason you don't think Reset Doctor is fantastic - I will give you a 100% refund.

There is a nasty bug in the operating system of Palm Devices with the new Non-Volatile-Filing-System (NVFS). It means that sometimes after a reset, you will lose all your settings and preferences.

If you've ever had this happen, you'll know how frustrating it can be. Not only do you have to restore your settings, but you can miss important alarms. If it's never happened, then you can just run Pref Doctor in the background - it will keep your preferences backed up, and even allow you to restore them a couple of times for free should you ever need to!

Rob at Hobbyist Software says:

The main change is that you can now set the network that you want to be selected after a reset (this has been really annoying me about my treo!)
Additionally, I have added a launchcode so that a shortcut app can call Reset Doctor and ask it to flush your cache.
The Shortcut even uses the new shortcut magic, so if you use the Butler keylauncher or Initiate, you don't need to leave your existing app.
Finally, there is a change that may restore the lost button preferences that some people experience.

Reset Doctor is available here for $9.95.


MotionApps has updated mSafe to v4.1.2.

Your smartphone is your personal assistant. At a very minimum it keeps your address book, personal and business information, and your phone call log.

  • Keep Things Running - Destaller Pro is an application oriented uninstaller.
