When switching from good old PalmOS to brand new & shiny webOS you'll soon realize that you can't take your memos with you! Those hundreds of text snippets you collected over the last decades have to rot in your PalmDesktop, on your Tungsten or Treo... palm somehow missed to build a functional pendant to the PalmOS-Notes-App. That funky pinboard app webOS includes is almost unusable with more than 20 notes.

So I went out to build my own ClassicNote! Including an Importer for your PalmDesktop 6.x memos, including all the features of that 20 year old PalmOS App - and including a shiny webOS GUI :)
