CelText for the Palm Pre – Send texts for free
Posted by Shane O'Sullivan on October 19, 2009
I’ve just released the first version of CelText, an application for the Palm Pre smartphone. CelText enables users in Ireland to send text messages for free, using the free web texts available from their mobile provider, either O2, Meteor or Vodafone.
This version of CelText is completely free, and can be installed using the PreCentrals Homebrew installation process, described here – http://www.precentral.net/how-to-install-homebrew-apps .
You can get CelText from http://www.precentral.net/homebrew-apps/celtext . I’ve just submitted it, so it may not be available for a day or so after this post (Oct 19th 2009).
If you have any issues with it, there is a discussion forum at http://forums.precentral.net/showthread.php?p=1985016 where you can let me know about any bugs that may be present.
For anyone interested in the technical aspects of how CelText is written, for the most part it uses Palms development tools, but I use the Dojo Ajax Toolkit for a number of tasks, including animations and Ajax calls.
