Blue Nomad has announced the release of a fully Mac OS-friendly version of WordSmith, its word processing app for Palm OS-based PDAs. The new version incorporates a conduit that enables Mac users to synchronize Rich Text Format (RTF) files. RTF is a format supported by Microsoft Word, AppleWorks, and other applications. The new version of WordSmith is a free upgrade for all registered users.
This new version’s conduit replaces a Mac OS document converter used by previous versions of WordSmith, and provides “generally the same features” as the Windows version, according to Blue Nomad.
WordSmith provides Palm OS PDA users with a full-featured word processor, an enhanced memo pad, and a rich document viewer — enabling users to view documents on their Palm with intact boldface, italics, underlines, paragraph formatting, indents, justification, font selection, and color. WordSmith also supports Palm Portable and Stowaway keyboards. The software also includes a command-line document converter for users of Intel-flavored Linux systems.
Want to give it a try? The new version of WordSmith, v1.12, is available from
for US$29.95. A trial version is available for download as well; it allows for 200 editing sessions, and unlimited use of the enhanced memo pad and rich document viewer.
