StyleTap has launched StyleTap Platform, a program that allows users to run applications and games originally written for Palm OS on handhelds running on Windows Mobile for Pocket PC. StyleTap claims the software is compatible with thousands of applications written for Palm OS 5.2 and earlier, and that users don’t have to run programs in a separate emulation window. The applications will show up instead as native programs on a Pocket PC and the user can then use them like they would Windows Mobile apps. “With this product, users who decide to migrate from a Palm OS device can keep running their favourite applications. For the first time, existing Windows Mobile PDA users can access a vast array of popular and proven Palm OS applications,” said Gregory Sokoloff, CEO and co-founder of StyleTap Inc. “This is the first of a family of StyleTap Platform products that will extend this capability to other handheld operating systems such as Symbian OS.” According to the company, with more than 20,000 applications available for the Palm OS platform (many of them free), the users will be able to do so much more with their Windows Mobile Pocket PC handheld. A preview version of StyleTap Platform is now available for a free 14-day trial at www.styletap.com. Users can also purchase the full program for the special introductory price of $29.95. This price includes a free upgrade to StyleTap Platform version 1.0 when it becomes available.
