PocketSensei® SilverScreen™ software just keeps
on rockin' 'n' scrollin' with even more extensive skinability.
Experience the next generation of application management with
the broadest and most productive toolset available, all while
customizing your palmtop with just the right look from a stellar
library of themes. You love your Palm® OS handheld for
its stylish design and uncompromisable simplicity; SilverScreen
is the world's best-selling application launcher that delivers
more of both.
Drag and drop your apps onto the pop-up Tool Sheet™
to get info, categorize, beam, or delete in a flash. Change
to the list view to compare file attributes or to sort with
a single tap. Set up the Stroke of Genius™ for intuitive
access to the functions you use most. Assign a favorite application
to a Hot Spot™ for one-tap access or find a recently
launched item under the QuickSilver™ menu. Lock your
device, perform a soft reset or even a simple shut down from
the Device menu. Whatever the task may be, it's simpler and
more efficient with SilverScreen.
The innovation doesn't stop there! SilverScreen pushes the
envelope of interface design with a ticker that keeps you
up-to-date on Datebook and To Do items without ever leaving
the launcher environment. A pop-up Tabs sheet makes navigating
between categories easier than ever before. SilverScreen also
provides the industry's most complete support for Secure Digital®
cards and Sony® Memory Stick® media. Launching and
categorizing items on expansion media is seamlessly integrated
along with the ability to copy and move files to and from
the handheld. A host of other improvements fine tune performance
to create the ultimate PDA experience. Sony Clié and
Tungsten T owners can enjoy the SilverScreen experience in
full hi-res simply by installing the included add-on files.
SilverScreen is designed for the professional or Palm enthusiast
who demands the most from his handheld computer. It represents
an unparalleled fusion of form and function, style and substance.

Take me to the Themes!
Anyone who’s ever picked up a Palm knows how underwhelming
the application launcher is. Even on a richly colored Palm,
the drab blues make up the only colorful and interesting part
of the user interface. Using the memory card is a burden,
as is trying to delete, beam, or get any useful information
on your applications. Many people who mistakenly purchase
Pocket PC’s purchase them merely on appearance.
Thankfully, Pocket Sensei® created SilverScreen™,
the complete Palm OS launcher out there today. It combines
the features of dozens of applications all into one neat package.
SilverScreen allows you rename, get information, and even
rename applications. Running programs off the memory card
is accomplished with ease, and everything (including databases)
can be quickly beamed.
Best of all, the themes are fun, interesting, and great looking,
on everything from a Palm III to today's HiResolution devices.
All in all, this is one of the best programs on the market
Cool-looking themes are one of SilverScreen's™ shining
points. Certainly, color themes look better, but the grayscale
ones are perfectly fine as well, many are available for
your viewing pleasure at pocketsensei.com. SilverScreen™
recently added a feature to allow you to configure a nice-looking
new scroll bar, as well as custom item and tab fonts.
You'll also find the ticker preferences in there. The ticker
is a little bar that scrolls like a "stock ticker"
across the bottom and shows you your to-do list and Date
Book information for the day, and can scroll at different
speeds. It's an extremely cool feature, just by itself.
Categorizing is hardly an exciting feature, but the tool
bar makes it easy to arrange things on the fly. The fonts
of the application, tool bar, and even the side scroll bar
can be configured. SilverScreen™ ships with four interesting
designs, and you can add your own using Font Bucket.
The scroll bar change is a very nice feature. It’s
a small change, but aesthetically to eliminate it removes
all traces of a regular Palm on your handheld. SilverScreen™
transforms it entirely into something much better.
Another thing you can configure is the program's names
in the browser, as well as the ability to hide them (which
another application that will remain nameless charges money
for), and change their icon.
also contains lots of free icons, so you've got a wide variety
of customization available. Finally, you can configure the
two dots on the side of the tool bars to go to apps, turn
on the backlight, lock the palm, you name it, it does it.
There's also a "recent apps/favorite apps" button
at the top right of the screen. If you don't like the icon
view, you can easily switch over to a list view instead
by hitting a green arrow. Simply put, there's a lot you
Another great feature of SilverScreen™ is the memory
card use. It's one of the easiest programs to use to put
applications on a memory card to run, just drag their icons
to the categorization icon in the tools section, and the
program is quickly transferred to the /Palm/Launcher Folder.
That brings me to the four icons in the tools section.
The info one allows you to see information on your handheld,
such as OS version, processor, power source, user name and
last HotSync. It displays info about a program if you drag
an application icon to the info tool, and it will allow
you to change the name and icon there, as well as display
miscellaneous info on the app.
Next is the categorization icon already mentioned.
The beam tool allows you to beam anything, including databases,
and although I really wish it allowed you to beam stuff
off the memory card, it's great the way it is.
Finally, there's the industry standard trash can, and it
works more like a regular trash can, where you can drag
stuff in, and empty or save the stuff later.
The battery display at the top shows a colorful power indicator,
and you can tap on it to have it give you a percentage,
and if you keep tapping on it, will show you internal memory
