Why this work was necessary: FreewarePalm contains a goldmine of ratings of Palm freeware. But it does not provide a way to sort the programs by rating. That is why I extracted the ratings and sorted them.
With over 6000 listings, there’s a lot to choose from, but, as Jon says, no way to sort those listings. Jon has crawled FreewarePalm with “Cygwin lynx, XEmacs, and a 60-line Ruby script” and done what FreewarePalm couldn’t: made a list of apps sorted by rating. And, for those who need pictures, there’s this other list that includes Palm screenshots. Caveat: the lists are one big file.
Now you can wast the remainder of your holiday time playing free games on your Palm-OS handheld.
