Piloteer Zorg

I discovered the Palm in 1997 and decided to buy one during a trip to California. It was a PalmPilot Professional. Well this little device hasnt left my sight since then!

I decided to start programming for the Palm in early 1998 and the first program to come out was WCup98. Not a very well refined program but the response was very good and this was good encouragement to continue. I've always believed that the best motivation to write a program is to write something that you need in the first place. And so, since I couldnt find any program that would allow me to keep track of my motorcycle's gas mileage I set out to write the "best" gas mileage and Highway Manager was born. (Yes there were other gas mileage programs out there but they were even simpler than WCup98 :-) ).

Highway Manager has been a great program for learning how to do professional Palm development and so when in 1999 I was looking for a stock portfolio program and couldnt find one that did everything I wanted, I set out to write Stock Manager. One cool thing about Stock Manager is the solid network layer to download stock quotes wirelessly with a GSM phone, Palm VII or an OmniSky wireless modem. With the wireless revolution upon us, expect to see a many more Net enabled programs from Zorglub Soft!

So, check out my programs, some are freeware, some shareware. In time, there will be a lot more stuff on this page.
