Uni Chat
PalmOS software for digital wireless whispering
This PalmOS applications allows you to chat in absolutely noiseless environments. OK, a room full of students "listening" to a lecture is never quiet... But if sitting several seets separated this software has proven to be useful for conversation.
Some features:
  • Beam messages between palm fast and without any "Do you want to accept..." questions
  • Nice start message ;-)

Just to be sure that you heard: You will need a PalmOS device to run this application. You can also use the Palm OS Emulator POSE. Linux binaries can be found here.
Do not ask for ROM files. I cannot and I do not want to share my ROMs with you. Go to the mentioned POSE page, there is a description on how to obtain ROM files from Palm Source directly and legally without owning a Palm handheld.

UniChat is available in multiple languages. Supported languages are right now (randomly ordered):
  • German (Deutsch)
  • English
If you want to help and translate UniMensa to another language please contact me and I will send you the language file.
First public release. If you find any bugs please send me a mail describing the problem (please note OS and hardware you use). 2003/01/30
Fixed odd bug that caused PalmOS 3.5.x (and probably earlier) handhelds to crash on menu access. Seems that there is a BadBug(TM) in the MenuHideItem function...
A special thanks to my friends Tobias "The Bugfinder" Weyand and Sumedha Ananda Markus Widyadharma (just had to write whole name :-) who greatly helped to reduce my Bug rate in this software (and others...). All remaining bugs are my fault. I probably inserted them after their checks...
Some screenshots will give you an impression of the software.
