Help - User's Guide
Here is a complete User's Guide. It should answer most of the questions you may have.
"Does #!GlobalTime cost anything?"
Technically, #!GlobalTime is shareware. However, it's not crippled in any way and I'm not going to nag you about paying for it. However, paying does encourage me to make improvements.
"So how do I send you money?"
Currently you can send us money by buying #!GlobalTime from these places :
- Nextel iDen catalog - for Nextel users
- Singtel - Select Ideas@Work -> Fun & Tools
- Handango - for everyone else

If you'd prefer not to pay, the next best thing is to send me an saying how great you think it is and how you've used it.

Download for Palm OS - version 1.2.1p
GlobalTime.prc

Note for users of Palm OS v4 - (for example Palm m505 users): You may get an out of memory error when you run #!GlobalTime. To fix this problem, go into the Java preferences. Select the Global preferences and reduce the "App Memory". That's right, reduce. (There are 2 types of memory needed by java programs - setting a large app memory reduces the other type of memory which GlobalTime needs to get decent performance.)
