I received a 1GB SD card for my PDA this Christmas, so I reinstalled several applications including my Wine Enthusiast Guide 2003 for Palm OS (they also make a version for Pocket PC). I have used this program for the past couple of years to primarily keep my tasting notes and an inventory of my wine cellar. Once my memory filled up on my old card, this was one of the first applications to be deleted due to it’s large size (about 2MB if everything is installed). Now that I have 4x the space, I decided to load it back on.
The first thing I noticed was the “guide” part of the program was very far out of date, including the handy vintage charts. A quick visit to the Landware website presented me with the option to upgrade to the 2005 version of the guide for only $10, so naturally I upgraded. I’ve only used the program for a few minutes, but other than the updated guide, most of the rest of the program is the same with many of the same flawed “features” from 2 versions back, such as the inability to properly sort lists. I will be giving a full review of this program in my 4th podcast, as I look at the alternatives on the market. Stay tuned…
Any new ideas on a good Palm software on wine. Thanks James
