 PDA Version of TractorPoint Available Soon

Ok Ok I know I got a mixed response on this one.

Nonetheless, I am about 75% complete with a PDA version of TractorPoint. Here is what it does.

1) It eliminates all graphics and every nonessential part of the page
2) It narrows the page to fit on the PDA screen
3) It uses very little bandwidth
4) It lists the last 10 messages by user in posted order
5) You click to see the post one message at a time

I have used it on my PDA and it is very cool, I think it could be used on a digital phone but replying a PDA is tough enough, a phone keypad ughh! I think I'll pass for now.

If there is anypone besides me who is interested in what I think is a very low cost efficient way to view some recent posts on a PDA let me know. Don't all come forward at once... Ok that's better one at a time... great ;>)

If the PDA version gets implemented, I will check it out on my Palm Pilot and digital phone. I am not sure that I will use it much, but I will take a look.

I will send you a test URL. This is definitely for the TP addict like I am. It takes very few bytes of those costly ATT gprs usage bytes, I get 4,000,000k (4MB) a month for $12. a typical access to TractorPointPDA loading the list of last 10 messages and reading 5 or so long ones uses about 20k.

Loading the regular TractorPoint on a PDA uses 10 to 20 X the amount above and is hopeless, expensive and hard to use, doenot fit on screen.

If you look at TractorPointPDA let me know if it fits on your device without scrolling, what device you are using and OS version.

I am using Pocket PC 2003.

Dennis
