Description & Features

What is this software?

This software lets you sync your Palm device with your computer, so your info is backed up and easily editable on your computer.

Keep your information up to date wherever you are. When you sync, any changes you've made to Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and Memos are automatically added to your computer or your Palm device.

Palm Desktop is the desktop personal information manager. HotSync Manager controls synchronization. Both are included in a single download on this page.

If you sync with Microsoft Outlook or Entourage, you still should install this software.
