Executive Tip Summary

  • If you have a lot of programs installed on your PalmPilot, also install SwitchHack. It lets you jump to other programs directly, bypassing the Applications screen. (More on SwitchHack in Appendix A.)

  • You can scroll the Applications screen by writing the first letter of the program you want on the Graffiti writing area.

  • You can switch from one “category page” of applications to the next by tapping the Applications silkscreen button repeatedly. (Not available on Pilot and PalmPilot models.)

  • MenuHack (see Appendix A) lets you pull down menus by tapping at the top of the screen, where you’d expect, instead of tapping the Menu icon at the bottom of the unit.
