No matter how much memory you may have on your haldheld, you've probably experienced the frustration of an ever-slowing PC. JackFlash quells this problem for Palm-compatible handhelds by programming in up to 40 percent more memory. Its secret: It stores programs in the handheld's Flash ROM space, allowing for more program space. Bottom line: an app that'll give even an aging rocker something to smile about.
