Palm to Android and Jolla migration
This is an update of the post from 2013-09-13
For my calendar, memos, tasks and contacts I have been using a Palm all the way from a PalmPilot through a Palm Vx, a Tungsten T, a Tungsten T5 and now a Palm TX. I have come to rely heavily on the built-in PalmOS apps and DateBk6.
Nothing ever being perfect, I had a few instances over the decades where I had to restore a backup, but the following are features I haveco to rely upon heavily;
- timezone support
- task management
- managing my contacts
- keeping short text notes
- data entry on my Fedora machines through J-Pilot
- rolling backup window of 7 days with jpilot-backup
Having no wish to share my private data with a cloud provider, but Palm OS being truly dead, I needed a self hosted solution that offered equivalents to the above at the very least.
being used to access the most important data both on my deaktop with J-Pilot and on my Palm, I expect the new solution to work with my desktop (mostly KDE, sometimes Gnome) and my mobile devices (Jolla and NAdroid).
On my Jolla, I can access the DAV folder that contains my notes with ownNotes.
other Palm apps that need to provide similar functionality on modern devices
borrowing and lending
On the Palm I used Verleihnix to keep track of books and movies borrowed or lent. I have not yet looked for a replacement on Android.
