Name that Palm app...
April 8, 2007 7:10 AM   Subscribe

Years ago I used a piece of software for the Palm OS. It allowed one to enter contact information into a text area, in any order. Then with the click of a button, the contact information you had jotted down would be sorted into the correct fields in the Palm address book. This is particularly helpful if you are writing down contact information that someone is providing over the phone. I cannot for the life of me remember the name of this software. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, please reply!

Never heard of it, but I'm looking forward to using it. Thanks both of you. Hail the hive mind!

Or you could be thinking of Actioneer, which now exists in two distinct guises:

1) The original, which parsed entries into the appropriate contact, calendar and task entries automagically. (And which I still want for my GTD capture tool for Windows Mobile, but doesn't exist...) :(

2) A newer flavor designed to hook you up with various web providers. Not so cool, IMHO.

3) A variant of 2) now called the Actioneer Invisible Password Manager.

The useful parts of 1) have now disappeared.

On preview, Slap looks as though it functions that way Actioneer used to.

Response by poster: Yes! Thanks so much! This has been driving me nuts trying to remember the app. Really appreciate it.
