Don't you hate the 160x160 size limitation on your Visor's screen? How would you like to look at any picture of any size up to 8000x8000 resolution? Then check out Firepad's FireViewer, a full-featured image viewer for the Palm OS.
There are two pieces of software that you use to put pictures on your Visor. FireViewer is the application that resides on the Visor and comes loaded with features:
Ok, you've seen the feature lists, now onto the applications themselves. Viewing images is easy to do. Run FireViewer and tap the image to view. There are seven icons that are visible when you tap the Menu icon. The eyeball is for viewing an image. The second icon is to see the entire image (full screen view). Tapping on the image jumps to that portion of the picture. The "i" icon brings up the Image Details. This is where you can change the category and mark the image as private. Other information such as dimensions and size is also available here.
Drag accross the screen to pan to see other parts of the image. Tap the paper icon (the 4th one) to type in any notes on the images. You can search these notes using the Visor's Find button. The fifth icon is to beam the image to another Palm-compatible that has FireViewer. The X icon is to delete the current image. The list icon is to return to the image listing.
On the image listing screen, you can set options such as what the hardware buttons do. By default the up/down buttons change images, but you can also use them to scroll inside the image. Tapping on one of the seven icons lets you use that feature on any files in the listing. For example, tapping the i icon then one of the files brings up the Details for that file.
These seven simple icons make viewing large images very easy.
I had no trouble looking around at some maps of Downtown Houston near Enron
Field that were 1000x798. The full screen feature is very nice as
it allowed me to jump to any part of the image I wanted, and if you leave
and come back to your image it remembers what part of the picture you were
