On the German site TamsPalm.de.vu, we wrote a review about DiddleBug. DiddleBug is an application for handwritten notes on a Palm. It is already a few years old, but as Palm Treos miss the Note Pad application, it could be an interesting app for all Treo users. And even if you have a regular Palm PDA, you could give it a try because it’s an improvement, compared to the Note Pad application.

You can draw with a regular pen, but also forms and texts. Two colors can be defined (paper and pen), just like in Palm’s Note Pad. There are three list views. Alarms can be defined (either a regular time or a countdown). Using plugins, you can export notes to other applications or file formats

  1. You could always just nick the NotePad app from a device that has it…

  2. Also a good idea. But there are some people who don’t like illegal or half-legal software on their devices. And DiddleBug has more features than the standard Note Pad.

  3. I like its somewhat smoother writing compared to Notepad. However, it is only 320 x 320, not 480 x 320. You can’t save notes with titles. It assigns sequential numbers to your notes. Nevertheless, it is still a nice free application.
