Programs for Free Download and Trial
The download you may be looking for first is WMDecode for Windows - for extracting files from winmail.dat mail messages (files named winmail.dat or ATT00001.dat).
The remainder are indispensable add-ins for your EPOC32
palmtop. They have been tested on a Psion Series 5, but most should work on the
5mx, 5mx Pro, GeoFox, NetBook, Series 7, Osaris, and Revo or Revo Plus. Some notes
are included below on compatibility. The WMDecode program is the only program here
for Microsoft Windows, all the others are for EPOC32/Symbian/Psion etc.
WMDecode - get attachments from winmail.dat files on Windows
Download WMDecode.zip (25K) For Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, 7 etc. Version 1.11
Microsoft Windows version of WinMail.dat decoder - all versions of Windows.
Time-limited - expires 28 May 2013.
WMDecode is a utility you can use in conjunction with your e-mail program. When you receive a message from a user with Microsoft Outlook who has sent you a message in Microsoft Outlook RTF format, you will receive the normal message text along with an attached file named 'winmail.dat'. Strictly speaking it's not a Word rich text file and you can't use Word to read it.
The winmail.dat file contains a formatted version of the message (which this program ignores) and any attached files. WMDecode will scan the selected winmail.dat file for attachments and save them individually, defaulting to the original (long) filename.
WMDecode is easy to use. To install, copy the file WMDecode.exe to your desktop. To use, just drag/drop a WINMAIL.DAT file from your Desktop or file-folder onto it to retrieve the attached files.
Note - if you use Microsoft Outlook Express and receive a message from an Outlook user which should have an attachment but appears to be missing then it may be still there. Just drag the email itself from Outlook Express to the desktop, then drag it again onto WMDecode.exe. Attachments will then be searched for - easy!
(This is a new feature in Version 1.11 - If you are a registered user then please email me and I can arrange for you to have it emailed to you).
DownCount - Word and Number Game V1.07 Pocket Brain Exerciser!
DownCount.zip (56K) For EPOC32/Psion/Symbian WITH ROM DICTIONARY - e.g. Series 5,5mx & 7
DownCountR.zip (56K) For EPOC32/Psion/Symbian WITH RAM DICTIONARY - e.g. Revo, Revo+ or Mako
DownCount will test your word and number skills. You will need to think quickly to get a good score. Resemblances to a TV quiz game of a similar name are purely coincidental!
To install DownCount run the SIS file in the zip archive.
There are 9 rounds in a game:
You can pick a game difficulty of 'Easy' which gives you double the time to play each round.
The Word Round Each round is in two stages. In the first for the Word round, select 9 letters using the Vowel or Consonant buttons. You have up to 30 seconds to do this from selecting the first letter. After the last letter is selected the next stage starts and you then have 30 seconds to make the longest word you can out of your chosen letters. When the 30 seconds is over, your answers are checked against the dictionary and scored. Then the computer works out any alternatives for you to see how much better you could have done.
The Number Round In the first stage for the Number round, select 6 numbers using the '25/75/100' or '1-10' buttons. You have up to 30 seconds to do this from selecting the first number. After the last number is selected the next stage starts and you are shown the target number to reach. You then have 30 seconds to enter an arithmetic expression using chosen numbers only once to make a sum as close as possible to the target. You can use the screen buttons to enter a number, the number keys and the symbols ×÷+-(). You can enter more than one answer by pressing the Enter key and the best scoring answer will be chosen at the end of the round. When the 30 seconds is over, your answers are checked against the target number and scored. Then the computer works out any alternatives - the computer plays a mean number round!
The Conundrum Round Press Enter to start the Conundrum round. The computer selects a 9 letter word and randomly orders its letters. You then have 30 seconds to make a 9 letter word out of those letters. When the 30 seconds is over, your answers are checked against the dictionary and scored. Then the computer works out any alternatives.
Enjoy the game!
WinMail.zip (7K) For EPOC32/Psion/Symbian Operating System Only, Not Windows (see above download).
WinMail - Extract attachments from winmail.dat files V1.04 Extracts even more file 'types'.
A program which extracts attachments from the WINMAIL.DAT file sent by Microsoft Outlook with Rich Text Format messages.
This program is a utility you can use in conjunction with the Psion/Symbian e-mail program. When you receive a message from a user who has 'mistakenly' sent you a message in Outlook RTF format, you will receive the normal message text along with an attached file named 'winmail.dat'. Strictly speaking it's not a Word rich text file and you can't use Word to read it, it's a format called TNEF.
This winmail.dat file contains a formatted version of the message (which this program ignores) and any attached files. Save the winmail.dat file to any folder and then run this program. It will scan the selected winmail.dat file for attachments and prompt you to save them individually, defaulting to the original (long) filename.
Anagram - Anagram Generator V1.1 Released as SIS file, Symbian UID. Some bug fixes for longer phrases. [ Revo users - please install the Psion Spell checker from your CD and then install this file instead: AnagramRevo.zip ]
This program 'discovers' multi-word anagrams. Enter your word or words in the top box. Extra spaces are removed and the words are converted to lower case. Press Enter and the program will use the computer's dictionary to work out a multi-word anagram. E.G. enter the word 'orchestra' and you will get a list of anagrams including 'cart horse'.
Various options include minimum word lengths and one letter words.
FivePlay - Mobile Music Sound Player V1.3 Added Revo compatibility
Lets you play selected multiple sound files in a sequence. It's a bit like an MP3 player, only it uses native EPOC32 format sound files. (Why create an MP3 player for the Series 5 when the speaker cannot reproduce MP3 quality and MP3 files are larger anyway?) FivePlay lets you set up PlayLists which play your audio tracks in the order you want them.
A 4 minute track takes up 2Mb, so to make this a practical proposition you really need a big CF disk to store an 'Album'. Many PC programs are available which 'rip' CD tracks and export then to WAV files - you can then use PsiWin to covert and copy them to the Series 5. I find that it's useful to approximately double the volume of the sound file before transferring it. Playing sound takes some current though, so you do need to watch your battery life.
Play - Sound File Player for the Revo V1.01
The Series 5/mx and others have 'Record' for recording and playing sound files. Although there's no microphone on the Revo, it can still play sound files. Play lets you play a sound file. It uses native Psion format sound files. Download sound files from the web or convert them using PsiWin. INSTALL ON REVO ONLY - MAKES SOUND FILES OPEN BY CLICKING ON THEM.Also take a look at our 'Sheet File Corner' - several handy Psion spreadsheet files you'll wonder how you managed without!.
