Palm Zire 72

by TheJawn / August 31, 2007 12:49 PM PDT

I got my zire 72 a few years ago, used it for everything. Now I have an iPod, and a Motorola Q, and I really can't find a use for it, what should I do with it?

Then to learn programming?

I write programs for the Palm PDA and Treo's. The units are fine for what they are but we needed custom applications so we wrote our own.

That's one thought, create a new use for it. The Zire 72's bluetooth is one of their best efforts.

If nothing else you can set it to stay on and be a "clock".

You have to have some "drive" or "need."

I may have never written such if there was no need.

Just sharing a few nuggets I wrote to answer some Palm programming questions are at

And on the web you can find the free Palm developer's kit. It took that and a few books to write my first application.
