"Palm Desktop 4.1.4"

November 18, 2009  |  By charles400

 |  Version: Palm Desktop 4.1.4

Pros

Excellent.
Very intuitive, very easy to learn, easy to understand, easy to use.

Cons

Cons:
Hmm.
Dunno.
I'm not a great big expert on software in general so I guess that I'll leave the cons to the professional reviewers to tell you all about it.
I'm just a little small uneducated inexperienced everyday sort of a fellow.

Summary

Intuitive and complete.

Those two words come right back to me.

Easy-to-use.

I was really surprised at how comprehensive, complete, this program, application, is.

Did I mention that it's easy to figure out?

And easy to use?

And pretty dad-garned sophisticated.

I'm very happy to have it.

What more can I say?

"Works well"

January 28, 2009  |  By emibrian

 |  Version: Palm Desktop 4.1.4

Pros

GoIod Basic desktop management PIM software

Cons

Old looking

Summary

I am not expecting to use the software for long, because I intend to upgrade my Palm Treo 650 to the Palm Pre, when it becomes available through Sprint. This works for me in the mean time.

"Works well with Vista"

November 22, 2008  |  By glarmstrong

 |  Version: Palm Desktop 4.1.4

Pros

Desktop hotsyncs exceptionally well using my Palm Pilot Tungsten E2. I use the Palm Pilot daily as I work in the medical field. Love the fact when I come home from work that I can easily update my conversations, calendar, phone records etc.

Cons

Wish I could use it to compose email and send it when I hotsync.

Summary

Have used previous versions of Desktop and all programs have small glitches. Haven't found one yet with 4.1.4. Best program around.

"Good, but lacks on "find" functionality"

October 09, 2008  |  By tk_cnet

 |  Version: Palm Desktop 4.1.4

Pros

Neat software, even if you don't have a palm. I had lost my Palm device but I still used this software as a placeholder of many number of important notes/information.

Cons

The find functionality - the find on a word finds the record where the word occured but not highlight the word you are finding.

Summary

Great Software, A must for anyone trying to keep many pieces of scattered information.

"One of the best programs for the Mac"

June 14, 2008  |  By Jim Harker

 |  Version: Palm Desktop 4.1.4

Pros

The ability to see contacts by memorized categories allows you to see a group of names associated with a particular project without having to see all your Christmas list etc also. The ability to link anything with anything lets me connect memos to people's name and address card. On the memo I keep information about my last contact so I'm always up to date and ready for the next contact.

"Doesn't work very well with Vista"

April 09, 2008  |  By pwb521

 |  Version: Palm Desktop 4.1.4

Pros

Palm Desktop 4.1.4 does an adequate job of tracking contact and calendar information in Vista. I don't sync my Palm so I can't comment on hotsync performance.

Cons

The calendar alarms are unreliable in Vista. No problems under Windows 2000 pro. Specifically, when I put my Vista computer into sleep mode overnight, any alarms that pass while the computer is asleep get skipped. Furthermore, the alarm executable often dies or I have to manually restart it in order for alarms to work. I upgraded to Palm Desktop by Access 6.2.2 and these problems don't occur. While the upgrade went smoothly and alarms work correctly, this software isn't without its own set of annoyances. Overall, however, the 6.2.2 version works better for me on Vista.

"This worked with Win XP Media Edition!"

May 18, 2007  |  By arnpoe

 |  Version: Palm Desktop 4.1.4

Pros

the app here is a little different than the version offered on the Palm One website - the version i downloaded there said it wouldn't work with win xp media edition or xp pro ... and it didn't ... but this version did work.

Cons

i downloaded this because i misplaced my CD, and it's kind of lame that there is no way to get the apps that came with the CD (my Photo viewer is messed up, so now i am without images).
