MyPalm, a personal information service accessible via the Web or wirelessly through the MyPalm downloadable Web clipping application (currently in beta testing) offers some nifty features that allow users of Palm OS handhelds to synchronize via the Web and share their schedules with others.
Unfortunately, MyPalm doesn’t currently offer software for Mac users to synchronize. However, the company does
have a Web site
for Mac users to indicate interest in a Mac version.
A note on the Web site reads: “We understand that there is a growing demand among MyPalm users for Mac support, although we do not yet offer synchronization with the Mac. If you would like to express your interest in Mac support and be kept informed of developments in this project, please click on the ‘Notify me on Change’ button below.”
The MyPalm portal gives users the freedom to access and manage their personal data, whether sitting at their desktop or connecting wirelessly through their handheld, according to Palm. With the Web clipping application, information is formatted specifically for handheld screens, enabling “easy, clear and virtually instantaneous” access for the user, say the folks at Palm.
MyPalm lets you schedule meetings at anytime; set up reminders for important events; access your contacts from anywhere; and sync MyPalm with your desktop or handheld organizer.
With the portal, you can share calendars, contacts and messages; manage business projects and workgroups; and more. You can use it to track events of interest to you, add events directly into your calendar, and share the details of events with friends.
MyPalm lets you view a summary of all your account balances. You can access all of your info with one password and user ID and link directly to account Web sites to make transactions. You can check travel rewards, investments, e-mails and more. MyPalm facilitates the creation and sending of personalized email invitations for business or social events — and get RSVPs.
The MyPalm portal and Web clipping application are available free of charge at the
MyPalm Web site. (If you’re an AnyDay or Palm.Netmember, login with your same username and password).
If you’d like to see the portal become Mac savvy, express your opinions at the previously mentioned Web site.
