DateBk6 for Palm OS® is the most advanced calendar application available for the platform and brings a wealth of functionality not even present in most desktop calendar programs. DateBk6 uses the same databases as the built-in applications and is therefore guaranteed to be 100% compatible with your existing desktop and conduit software and runs on all versions of the Palm OS from 3.5 to 5.9+. 

When was the last time that you missed buying a birthday present because there was no ADVANCE warning of an event? Or missed a task because your tasks were not integrated with your calendar? Or spent more than two taps inserting a commonly used event for which DateBk6 has a built-in template? Or needed to look at a week-at-a-glance with the TEXT listed of your appointments? Or wanted to use color on your Palm handheld to emphasize important events? Or wanted to keep your spouse's or co-worker's calendar on your palm - but visibly separate from your own? Or have DateBk6 time-zone aware so that alarms and events are properly keyed to the correct timezone? Or wanted to recover an event that you accidentally just deleted? Or link an event or ToDo to an addressbook entry and automatically log to it? Or put an alarm on a ToDo? Or handle events that span midnight? Or.....? DateBk6 handles all of these tasks and more. No wonder it is one of the most popular Palm programs ever written! A light version of DateBk3 (DateBK4/5's predecessor licensed to Handspring) appeared in every Handspring handheld and the PalmOne Treo 600 smartphone under the name DateBook+ or Calendar.

DateBk6 runs on ALL PALM OS Devices running OS 3.5 or later. Note: some Treo's run Windows mobile and are not compatible - usually these will have a 'w' after the model number - so be sure your Treo is a Palm OS model before ordering DateBk6.

Best of all, the proceeds from this product go towards wildlife conservation and the Dewar Wildlife Gorilla Project in the North Georgia Mountains

Advantages over the built-in Datebook

• Colors, fonts, icons, custom alarms and repeats (on both events and ToDo's) make it easy highlight important events

• Full integration of ToDo's, split-screen display of all databases.

• Today screen with plug-ins (VersaMail, SnapperMail, WeatherForecast, battery status, quote-of-the-day, phases of moon - more to come!) and many ways to configure it. Note: some plug-ins written by other developers may only be trial versions which require a separate charge for a fully licensed version, although most are free.

• Floating Reminders (advances) for items give advance warning that avoid surprises.

• Saved Views make it possible to customize a view and then save it for future use or schedule it with a complex repeat schedule so it gets applied automatically when you want

• Alarm Manager shows all upcoming alarms, allows you to silence all alarms to a fixed date/time, or you can designate certain events (such as meetings) to automatically silence alarms.

• Quick Entry Templates available in all views insert standard boilerplate items with just a few taps

• Weekly View with text shows a week-at-a-glance with the ability to read the appointment text. Year, 4-month and list views are also featured in DateBk6 and even the graphical weekly and monthly views have options to display text.

• Use Palm OS categories to separate business from personal use or store calendars of other people, with the ability to beam an entire category to another user.

• Colorful icons along with an icon editor provides both useful functionality and a creative outlet.

• Sony Clie Support includes support for Small and Tiny fonts, jog dial, PCM Sound Library(OS/4/4.1 only), high density icons and collapsible graffiti on NR-70, NX-70/80, NZ-90 etc. (Half-VGA screen).

• TimeZone management allows multiple items in different timezones to be displayed with adjustments in your current timezone.

• Flexible purging, separate history database and undelete functions make it easy to manage past events.

• Enhanced Date Picker has popup list of all events/ToDo's

• Anniversary feature shows years for anniversaries or ages on birthdays - also handles birthday field in proprietary contacts database present on some newer Palm devices.

• Link items to other items, so an appointment can link to other related appointments or ToDo's - or to contacts associated with that appointment.

• More than 100 other features covering ease of use, and flexible configuration options make DateBk6 one of the best values in Palm OS add-on software.

• Support. When you need help, you are talking to highly experienced Palm OS users/developers with a genuine interest in helping you - not novice support technicians at a large company that have relatively little interest in your problems.
