Desktop upgrade/crossgrade

Postby dtherio » Mon Feb 23, 2015 1:28 am

Hi all,

I first started with HanDBase on the Palm many years ago. I recently purchased the iPhone version and am wondering which option to choose to get the desktop version for Windows. I might also purchase the andriod version for a small tablet I have. Will the desktop version work for both mobile platforms?

The HanDBase Desktop will work for databases you use with both your iPhone and your Android Tablet. However, if you want to be able to synchronize your databases between your device(s) and your Windows computer you will need a different conduit for each of those. You will likely want to at least consider the HanDBase Plus Add-on for your iPhone. This will allow you to Synchronize your databases with your computer over a WiFi connection so that you can create or edit the databases on your computer and easily synchronize them with your iPhone. You can download a trial version of the HanDBase Plus Add-on from this page on the website.

The same would apply to your Android tablet if you wish to fully synchronize your data. There is a HanDBase Plus Add-on for Android devices as well. However this might depend on how often you plan to use the Android tablet with HanDBase. It's also possible to just email your databases and then open the attached file on your device. That will save and open or Merge and open, if the database already exists, on your device. If you do want to fully synchronize with your Android Tablet you can find a trial version of the Plus Add-on on this page of the website.

Once you decide how you want to proceed and you are ready to purchase the Add-on you've decided on you can long into your Account on the website from On that page you'll see a link for the "HanDBase Upgrade Wizard" in the right hand column. From there you'd pick your old PalmOS version of the software and click Continue. On that next page select the option for "Add an Additional License..." When you click Continue you'll see options to purchase the Add-ons at a discounted price, since you are an existing user.

I hope that helps.
