Palm Month is now Retro Month

Hi, everyone! After some careful consideration, I've decided that Palm Month is now going to be called "Retro Month" and will involve me developing all sorts of retro platforms, not just the ones made by Palm. This is mainly because I recently purchased a really neat retro device that I decided I wanted to try developing for: the Pebble Smartwatch. This led me to making this decision, and while I'm sad to see the Palm Month tradition end, I'm looking forward to the remainder of the new "Retro Month" and my first foray into Pebble development!

PreMail v1.1 is finally here!

Hey, everyone! As you may remember, last Palm Month, I released a little Gmail app for webOS that was based off of PreBook called PreMail. However, it hasn't really seen any updates since then. So, now that Palm Month 2021 is here, I've decided to do something about that and finally release a new update for it! Here's what's new in PreMail v1.1: Open Source: First and foremost, PreMail's code is now open source! You can check out its GitHub repository to learn more. Improved UI: If you've checked out the latest version of PreBook, PreMail's updated and improved UI will be familiar. PreMail does have some UI differences from its Facebook counterpart, but they do have lot in common. Updated Guide: The basic mobile site for Gmail does have some quirks on webOS, so ever since its release, PreMail has featured a handy little user guide. In this update, it has been revamped to be more helpful! Auto-Updater: Like PreBook, PreMail is now available in the webOS App

PreBook v1.6.1 has been released!

Hey, everyone. To start off Palm Month, I have released yet another PreBook update! Once again, I have teamed up with codepoet80  to do so. This time, we've refreshed the UI, fixed some bugs, and have made PreBook even better than it was before! What's new: This update makes a ton of improvements to the user interface! Many menus and icons have been updated, and navigation controls are now arranged better. Two new quick actions have been added that let you easily view your friends list and profile page! Code refinements. Many bug fixes and small tweaks. As you can see, PreBook v1.6.1 definitely makes some exciting improvements and additions to the app, especially to its user interface! Overall, I'd say it's a pretty exciting update, and you can download it today from the PreBook GitHub page . Enjoy! Here's a screenshot from version 1.6.1!

This May is Palm Month 2021

Happy May, everyone! While May is generally a good month by itself, especially when compared to the ones immediately before it, it's also one of my favorite months of the year for another reason. Originally started in 2020, this May will continue the tradition of Tectra Palm Month! What is it? Basically, Palm Month is an event that takes place in May every year, in which I mainly focus on making software for Palm OS and webOS. It's becoming a tradition now, and it's definitely a fun break from the usual projects! When does it start? Unfortunately, Palm month likely won't start until a few days from now. My laptop's AC adapter decided to break last night, so now I have to buy a new one. It should hopefully be here soon, but until then, I won't be able to use my Windows laptop. Anyway, I'm excited to see how this Palm Month goes! As always, keep an eye out for more updates, and with any luck, I'll be able to get to work sooner rather than later.
