preferably freeware...


Yes In know, PDA's (and specifically palm Pllots) are so 20th century! But I have one. I have the 3 calulators that promash offers (Strike temp, alch calc. and hydro correction)

I have looked for more; yes even here, but not come up with any. I know of one recipe formulator but frankly it is not much good compared to what I have on the desktop (beer Alchemy). I realize not many people are making software for these dinosaurs anymore but thought I would check. It is handy to have with me at the brew rig since my wife won't let me borrow her laptop

Just want some more "games" I guess.

I have heard of the Palm but don't know of any brew software developed for it's use. All I could have done is told you to get the ProMash tools but, youve done that already.

I have been trying to justify getting a mini-laptop (~400.00) so that I can have a full version of BeerSmith running in teh same room as me. I just can't seem to bring myself to take the laptop out there and risk it.

Good question - I found "Brewculator 1.0.3 Free" for Palm OS, I need for one for Windows Mobile 6...

Download Brewculator 1.0.3 Free

I haven't tried it as I don't have anything with Palm on it anymore.

Take a look at the asus eee pc. Thats what I have, Im running linux with strangebrew. Works well, just get the silicone keyboard cover. Asus's can be had <$300

On a side note, I just ordered a xv6900 (HTC Touch) running windows mobile, and I am too, looking for more 'games' for it. A database for tasting beers would be nice too!

"Brew Math" for the iPhone (available through iTunes) works really well. Same company makes a great Mac application as well.

I've messed about with brewculator a bit. It's OK but not great, it hasn't been updated since 2003. I've toyed with the idea of writing something myself but that would take away from something else, like actually brewing.
