What can you print? Memos, To-do's, and anything on the Clipboard using the PalmPrint software. Plus Envelopes and Address Labels from the Address Book using the included SnailMailer application also from Stevens Creek Software. One of the best features of PalmPrint, is that you can print from many third-party applications. Stevens Creek Software has published routines that programmers can use to give their application printing ability for owners of PalmPrint. Check their website (http://www.stevenscreek.com/palm/palmprint.shtml) for the most up-to-date list of programs. At the time of my review, the following applications were compatible with PalmPrint: ChessPad, DayNotez, HanDBase, Handy Randy, Insider, iScribe, JFile Pro, MagicText, Mail/P, MultiMail Pro, OmniSky Mail, On Hand, OneTouch Mail, PatientKeeper, Pendragon Order Forms, PocketRegister, PocketReport, PocketTimer, RaceBase, Satellite Forms, ScorePad, SmartDoc 2.0, SnailMailer, Take An Order, ThinkDB, TimeReport, WardWatch 1.2.5.
The three buttons in the PalmPrint application allow you to print from the Clipboard, Memo, or ToDo List. That's about all there is to the PalmPrint application itself. The real fun comes when you print from one of the compatible third-party applications.
There are several other sample applications included on the diskette. They are provided at no charge. Mail/P is a modified version of the standard Palm Mail application which allows you to print email messages. SnailMailer allows you to print Envelopes, Address labels and also has a Merge feature that lets you perform a sort of 'mail merge' combining and Address with a Memo.
The Serial Cable is included and is nicely made. It is a quality cable and does not seem home-made in anyway. The included 9-pin to 25-pin adapter allows it to be used on 9-pin or 25-pin serial printers.
Since the software is
available as a trial, you can download the applications
and give them a try yourself ! The suggested retail price
