Owners of a Psion Series 5, Series 7 or Revo who don't subscribe to Palmtop are missing out. Before I go into too much detail, it's only fair to note that I occasionally write for Palmtop, although that doesn't predudice my views. Palmtop started around five years ago and at the time of writing is up to issue 33. It's published bi-monthly in a full-colour A5 format. An issue typically has 140 pages, and a glance at the current issue is a good indication of the topics covered: News section (5 pages) Shareware roundup (10 pages) Reviews (17 pages) inc ZipManager,car power supplies, cases A review of the eleven major finance packages (14 pages) Keeping your Psion in working order (6 pages) Configuring Agenda (5 pages) Document conversion (7 pages) Using macros (5 pages) Essential Disk Utilities (5 pages) Word tutorial part 5 (5 pages) Dictionaries and Thesaurii (5 pages) ebooks update (2 pages) Games tips (2 pages) On The Net roundup (2 pages) Hints and Tips / QA (8 pages) Musings (2 pages) Reference section - glossary, websites, problems, models, classifieds and ads The magazine arrives every two months and is always a good read. The articles are well-written and vary in audience from very basic stuff for beginners, to advanced features on getting the most from applications, using shareware, hardware reviews, readers letters and user's questions. The magazine uses full colour and quality paper, and it's handy size makes it a great reference library for a bookshelf. Helpfully, an index of articles ia available on the Palmtop website in EPOC format, so that you can search for arricles and locate the right issue. Palmtop is available by mail-order only for £24, although if you're not sure, you can buy a one-off trial copy. It's worth checking out their website at www.palmtop.co.uk for details of any special offers, and to subscribe online. Good content, nice and colourful and always a good read... shame it's not on sale in Smiths!
