Forwarding Address: OS X

Monday, February 23, 2004

I recently picked up a Palm Tungsten T, having taken a hiatus from the platform after my old m105 fell ill. One thing that I missed was reading web pages offline via AvantGo, whose official OS X conduit has yet to appear. It turns out there are several workarounds. If you are wedded to AvantGo, there's MAL Conduit or The Missing Sync.

I decided to abandon AvantGo entirely and go with the open-source Plucker. Configuration is a little click-intensive, but it all works very well, and the reader is excellent (especially with some nice fonts). If you want to read RSS feeds, there's JPluck, though I just use my own little RSS-to-HTML converter tool with the regular Plucker desktop client. Discuss
