BRIEFLY: Web searching tool for the Palm OS

PROS: Access information on the move in double quick time

CONS: Tricky to customise


Hobbyist Software


Genius! Internet Application For Palm Treos
Grab facts from the web in double quick time with this handy time saving utility for Palm OS users.
Review by urban75 for Digital-Lifestyles, 7th Jan, 2007

If you've ever needed information fast from the Web when you're on the move, Genius! by Hobbyist Software could be just what you're looking for.

Genius! Internet App For Palm Treos: Review (83%)Designed for Palm Treo 600/650/680/700p users, Genius! gives you fast access to mobile-optimised sites, via a tabbed interface offering, 'information,' 'shopping' and 'translation' categories.

So if you're out shopping and wondering if the pushy salesman really is offering you a bargain, you can just type in the product name (or product code, title, ISBN or brand) into Genius! and choose a price comparison site from the dropdown menu.

Pressing 'go' will open up a page full of results from the appropriate mobile optimised Website, saving you the hassle of opening up the Palm's browser, looking for the right site, typing in the product name and then waiting for the results to download.


Genius! Internet App For Palm Treos: Review (83%)Devious cheating pub quizzers will like the 'information' tab which will quietly send your question to fact-filled sites like google, wikipedia and and bring up a Webpage with the answer already showing.

The interface also offers nippy, direct access to translation Websites, stock quotes, weather, directions and local info, with downloadable 'plugins' letting users customise the program to their preferences.

A bookmark management tool lets users edit and delete bookmarks with the option to select Google Optimiser to return results in a format enhanced for small screens.

Genius! Internet App For Palm Treos: Review (83%)Although it's not one of those programs that is likely to change your life, power users regularly accessing the Web via their Palm Treos may find this an invaluable addition to their handheld - and at around a fiver ($9.99), it's well worth a punt.

Features: 80%
Ease of use: 80%
Value For Money: 85%
Overall: 83%
