HandyShopper - Desktop Editors

We know you want to... Go ahead, edit those HandyShopper lists on your desktop! The HandyShopper archive you download from PalmGear contains not only the HandyShopper program for your Palm Powered device, but also a command line conversion tool to convert HandyShopper PDB files from PDB to CSV/TXT files and back again. The Readme includes notes on how to use this conversion tool. What? That's not easy and user friendly enough? Well, ok, then. Here's a set of links to all the desktop editing apps available, separated into the ones that are actively updated, and the ones that aren't. These are not officially sponsored or endorsed by Chris Antos, so any support for them should be taken up by their respective support forums.
