    Exclamation Palm Pilot Fornt-End

    Hi guys,
    If anyone is interested, it is very possible to use a Palm Pilot as a front-end controller, and thus combine the display and control functions. There is an applet called "PocketC" which is very easy to use, and includes simple serial i/o. Check it out at "http://www.orbworks.com/". I have started work on a program to implement this in conjunction with a WinAmp plugin. I'll let you know how it goes - approx 2-3 weeks.

    PS : Heading should read "Palm Pilot Front End"

    Gandalf, if you could write something like palmamp except with multiple playlist support or creating playlists on the fly with a database stored with id3 tags I would really be impressed, a man can always dream right?

    Hey guys,

    psalmx : I've tried using palmamp, but it keeps crashing my palm pilot to such an extent that I have to hard reset it.

    topperge : Yep you can always dream. I plan to have a simple interface, but hopefully it will have playlist support, and a preference listing also. I'll keep you posted.
