Journal Bar, by Omega One MobileSolutions, a a slick tool for your Pocket PC smartphone or PDA.I have this program on my smartphone and it keeps me up-to-date on just about everything. For example, the weather. Journal Bar can give you the weather in 14 different cities or locations. You can see the current information as well as the extended forecast. You can see this in the screen capture. I can track the weather not only where I live,but also in other cites that might be of interest ... like someplace Imay be traveling soon. Very handy, but Journal Bar gives you even more than weather. It also keeps you up-to-date on things like news, sports, the stock market, and more. The program is configurable so you can get the news you want. World news, national news, tech news, and more. And you can currently get news in 18 languages from 29 countries and over 100 news sources. Slick!

Journal Bar cam bring you reviews of the latest movies and even show you want time a movie is playing in your local theater. You can get the latest sport scores, your daily horoscope, even a listing of what shows are on TV tonight. Ahh, but do you have to have all thisinformation? No! One cool feature is that the program is totallycustomizeable. You decide what information is obtained, how long it's kept, even how often the program updates information. The news you get is the news you want to see and that's important. There's even an expanded version of Journal Bar that brings weather, news, and more from even more sources and countries.

Journal Bar, from Omega One, is a slick product for your Pocket PC smartphone or PDA. Keep on top of things even when you're on-the-go. Sound interesting? Then check it out, I recommend it!
