Palm OSCubTracks - Cub Scout Advancement Tracker by Aaron Vail. From the author: I am LDS and so this was originally designed to flow very well with our Cub Scout program at the local level. Thus there are many areas in Cub Scouting that I am just not aware of because our program layout is only slightly different than normal. This application is meant to quickly record the progress of individual Cub Scouts. It is not meant to record everything a Cub does nor is it meant to replace the Individual Record Sheets. It is simply meant to be used as an overview of the progress of Cubs. It is also used to keep important information reguarding Leaders such as phone number, email, position, trained or not, etc. Feedback on this application is very welcome and I will make updates and revisions in the future according to users' suggestions. Users may email me with suggestions. I hope that people find this little application user friendly and helpful in thier Cub Scouting efforts."

Jack Haycock wrote to us "He is a great ASM in charge of the 11 year old scouts and gets almost all of them to First Class before handing them off." Editor's note: I tried this one out and found it very easy to use. Great for keeping track of individual advancement. [Distributed with permission of the author]

Other Palm Programs of Interest

Palm OSPlanetarium, ver 2.0. Brian Davis writes that he found Planetarium at http://www.pilotgear.com, and that it was written by A.Hofer at planets@aho.ch. "It shows all of the stars, galaxies, and planets, and can display the rising and setting times for all of the planets as well as the sun and the moon. It shows the zodiac and can be zoomed in to examine a tight knot of stars. And to top it all off, it allows you to search for a specific star, giving the position in the sky via a crosshair. Very cool." Our thanks to Richard A. Fowell for the updated direct link to this useful program.

If you have a PalmPilot OS program that you'd like to share, please let us know. As the use of small Personal Data Assistants (PDAs) increases, we hope to continue to offer more resources for PDA users.

Visit WEBnME.com's Palm Center for more Palm Resources including books, software, and gear.

About the Programs:

These programs are all designed to work on PDAs using the Palm OS. They can be installed by using the HotSync feature of PalmPilots. (See the manual that came with your PDA for details on how to install software.)

If you have not already installed a document viewing program on your PalmPilot you will need to download and install a viewing program such as:


or another DOC compatible reader. For those who have a Win CE device, there is a program called Bookviewer, available at www.download.com under Windows CE/Utilities, that will allow you to view doc files on Win CE devices.
