Turn your Palm's backlight on everytime you turn your Palm on!
This application targets the Palm m505, but does work on other handhelds. It will turn on the backlight of your handheld every time you turn your Palm on. This app differs from the "official" Palm app in several ways:
  • There is never any user interface. It just works, and doesn't need to be configured.
  • It is much smaller (under 1Kb).
  • It turns on the backlight everytime the handheld is turned on.
  • There's no icon to clutter up your launcher.

This is not a hack! It uses the Notification Manager introduced in Palm OS 4.0. It is safe to run on any Palm Powered device running Palm OS 4.0 and higher. You can always turn the backlight off by holding the power button for 2 seconds. Holding the power button for 2 seconds again turns the backlight back on - just like you expect it to! If you decide you don't like the app you can just delete it and your Palm will revert to its original operation.

Other backlight apps to consider for your m505 are the official Palm app or 505LightOn.

BacklightOn is free, and can be downloaded by clicking here.
