Northglide Cloner -
Palm OS 4.x/5 ONLY -
Northglide Cloner is a truly unique
program that lets you extend your favorite applications like never
before. By making exact replicates of selected applications,
Northglide Cloner lets you create your own multi-user Palm! Keep
multiple Address Books, Date Books, accounting programs with
multiple accounts, games with different difficulty levels and so
much more. You can create replicates just to play with, without
damaging the original data, and even create shortcuts to launch
applications with a selected profile directly from your favorite
launcher screen. If one of your favorite applications is limited
to a single profile, or you are relying on an old program that
will never be updated again, Northglide Cloner is for you!
When you switch between replicated
profiles of a certain application, you can use and change anything
you want, without affecting any other profile. The new additions
and changes are saved for the next time the chosen profile is
activated. Northglide Cloner creates exact copies of the
application preferences (settings) and database files. Then, it
lets you switch to different profiles while saving all the changes
made to the active one. You can choose to create the profile in
the main memory (RAM) or multiple profiles on the expansion card:
Profiles in the main memory are much faster to activate, but since
the additional profile database files are kept in the main memory,
every application will occupy almost double the amount of space
(only its database files, without the application file itself).
This is why you can only create a single additional profile in the
main memory. You can create up to four different profiles on the
expansion card. Card profiles are slower to activate, since the
data used by the active profile has to be first moved to the card
and then the new profile files have to be copied from the card to
the main memory. You can even create additional profiles to
applications that require desktop synchronization (such as the
Calendar and Contacts programs) and have Northglide Cloner switch
back to the default profile, just before the HotSync process
beings, so that the correct data will be synchronized with the
desktop computer. Northglide Cloner lets you to link profiles to
each other and activate several different profiles at once
(especially useful when creating additional profiles to 3rd party
PIM replacement applications).
- To switch back to the default profiles before the HotSync
process beings, Northglide Cloner must be installed to the main memory.
- Do not delete Northglide Cloner before making sure all of the
active profiles are the correct ones. Deleting Northglide Cloner will
also delete all of the additional profile files and settings in
the main memory.
