I want to write in my language and now I can
A reviewer from Nove Zamky, Slovakia, 2006-01-17 09:04:44
"When I bought my Tungsten T, I was a little disappointed, because I wrote text with
accents on PC and Palm is not ready to make it possible to write with accents for Czech or Slovak users.
I buy Czech Piloc, and after install to my Tungsten and switch to Czech Language, I can write Memos with
accents with Graffiti. It is simple, just write down the letter and then the symbol for accent. Some
names or words in Czech language have a different meaning when you write it down without accents and this
cause me some trouble before I use Piloc. Now I can read text on my Palm without to think about meaning of
word, because it is showed in right way. For writing longer texts I use Universal Wireless keyboard with 5
rows. With support for external keyboard in Piloc I can write emails, texts, memos on lectures, like
on normal keyboard on PC, because on the numerical line I have letters with accents and now, for example,
I needn''t press Alt+V and "z" to write ž. Czech piloc on my Tungsten T runs fine, has no incompatibility
with others apps. It is a solid piece of utility, that everyone who wants to write in his national
language should have."
The best multilingual solution for Palm
A reviewer from Poland, 2003-12-10 01:51:05
"Because I needed not only support for Polish, my native language, but for Czech too
I was looking for the best solution to do it. Polish PiLoc I got with my Tungsten C when I got it. I
tried then Czech PiLoc eval and it suited me. Together with PiLoc Monitor they are pretty good for me
and my activity. So if you're looking for something which easily supports many languages buy this. Don't
forget about PiLoc Monitor - very goot tool."
