The Liturgy of the Hours, the Mass, and other things.

Palm and Windows Mobile

Posted by universalis on 31 August 2011

We have ceased further development of Universalis for Palm OS and Windows Mobile. These are old systems, and having to cope with their limitations has been holding back the development of Universalis in general.

The final versions of Universalis for these systems are dated 8 August 2011. They will remain available for download in the future but no updates will be issued. For this reason we have made them into free downloads, for Palm OS and for Pocket PC / Windows Mobile. You don’t need to pay, and no registration codes are required.

If you have an old Palm or Windows Mobile device lying unused in a drawer, you might consider installing Universalis on it and donating it to someone who wants to have electronic access to the Liturgy of the Hours but can’t afford a new device.

    I am sad to see the discontinuance of the Palm version. This was the only device which Universalis is available for that I could bring into my workplace. I like the new features though of the Windows version. Any thoughts on supporting Android? I do not have an Android device, but looking at information about them, I prefer them in someways to IPhone….

  2. Likewise I am disappointed that the windows mobile version is not being updated – however if a blackberry version was made then that would be good too.

  3. Blackberry: never. Android: conceivably one day. I do know that people want it!

    The Palm (and Windows Mobile) versions are only discontinued in the sense that they aren’t being updated any more, so they won’t reflect any future spelling corrections, additional content (such as the Order of Mass) or new saints. But they are still available for download and will continue be available.

      Please don’t say ‘never’ to Universalis on Blackberry, I and many of my friends both clerical and lay who have moved to a BlackBerry smart phone are missing it very much. We would be prepared to pay for it, it is so valuable to us and we miss it so much. Now we have to take the huge paper volume with us all day long. Please reconsider.
