Very good product, very good support

"This is a very good product. It does what it says on the box. The support is great
too. I had Romanian PiLoc on my old Sony Clie SJ30. When I changed my PDA to Palm Tungsten T, I've just
sent them an email with my new device ID. In less than one day they sent me the serial number for my
device and the download link for the newest version. Their e-Care system is wonderful. Try this software,
you'll end up buying it."
PiLoc makes me not only use my Palm
but enjoy it.

"Dear friends I am a Palm user. For a couple of years I?ve been using a Palm IIIxe
and now I am on m500 product. It is so good for organizing your life and business. I am a Romanian
speaking person and it happened that I downloaded into my Palm the Romanian Bible. I enjoyed reading
it but get frustrated of the little bugy signs corresponding to the specific Romanian characters.
I?ve been asking around how could I fix that problem and I was advised to look on the Internet. So
I did, and I found the language localization software at Handandgo. I downloaded the Romanian
Demo version to see if it works, and to my surprise and happiness it worked very well. It was so
easy to learn the graffiti writing and very soon I was using it for my notes and address book.
Most of that, all the Word documents and Excel sheets came out in a great new way. I?ve got use
to it and in love with it until I realize that the Demo version is time limited. I managed to
reinstall the Romanian PiLoc Lite for few more times on my handheld but after that the system
went back on the default running. It was so different and uneasy. So I started to look for a way
to get the register version. I planed that in my next business trip to Moscow to contact the
Paragon office and get the soft but since the event would be at more than two month distance I
decided to buy it online. I've got it and I am excited using it. I am continuing to use the
English Default but Romanian PiLoc gives another dimension to my Palm. It is easy to use, very
convenient and gives me the filling that I am home. PiLoc makes me not only use my Palm but enjoy it."
