Software for Epoc (Psion)

Categories:     Dictionary     Games     Maths     AudioPlayer     Links

These are some useful programs that I wrote for myself in OPL for Revo.
I also tested them on the R5 Emulator, and, as far as I know from feedback
by oher users, they also run on other EPOC machines.
For each program, the ZIP-file contains a SIS installation file.


Lingo v2.3 (UPDATE: 2004-02-22)

Lingo is a freeware multilingual dictionary to translate single words
between languages. Twelve languages are included:
EN, FR, DE, PT, ES, IT, NL, SV, EL, AR, LB and EO (Esperanto).
More languages can be added. The language files are based on
ERGANE, a freeware dictionary program for Windows.

Memory Trainer v1.0

I invented this game in 1981 (on a HP41 calculator).
The program displays a series of numbers that the player must repeat.
This game is similar, but has a different rule as 'Simon':
here the player must push the numbers in a mental FIFO stack.
The program is intended to help me fight against my forgetfulness.

The machine displays arithmetical problems (like 246-187=? or 142x23=?).
Type (+,-,x,:,all) and level (digits) can be chosen.

Audio Player

Playback v1.0

This is sort of a substitute of the Record Application for Revo.
It allows to play soundfiles (alarms and others).
Using's UID, the program 'associates' itself with soundfiles.
Because it plays asynchronically, playback can be interrupted.
This program must ONLY be used with on REVO, not on other machines
like Series5, as it would conflict with Record.
