it's okay, I'm the same way about Macromedia Director. No affiliation, just mad about the app.

I had been working with iShell Mobile for a couple of months in Beta before the official release Oct. 14th, watching it grow into possibly the biggest breakthrough Palm software has seen in multimedia authoring. For starters and so you will know you definitely want to try this out I want to point out some of it's feature rich design and technical approaches that are incredible and easy on the developer.
For Starters:
1) The interface - Allows both Content/MM and Application developers to rapidly build full blown projects/publications that include video, VR, wide range of audible, graphics and true interactive exciting “looks”, that has taken the dullness out of digital publishing for the Palm OS. Once you have all your media prepared, it's simply drag and drop, with the ability to copy pieces of these functions to use them without having to redo it over and over. This saves even more time on an already fast productive design. The layout of the screen, has everything you need in easy reach, and the learning curve is next to nothing . Not like some other software in multimedia development we've all seen. Events, Elements, Commands among others are right at your fingertips, The work environment is neat, clean and easy to see where you are. The ability to pretest and see how your project looks in the selected screen size, and the ability to publish in more than one screen size is there. Considering the complexities of publishing in the Palm platform, iShell Mobile has opened the door to solving the problems of different screen sizes, storage or lack of , small system resources and all the different input methods such as 5 way joy stick, jog dial, stylus
Handwriting , and keyboards.

2) iShell Mobile utilizes the Kinoma Player to run the publications, which is generally packaged with most PDA's. The Palm Zire 71 I bought last summer came with Kinoma and Producer, which allows drag and drop on the producer to further enhance your mind blowing multimedia production. Sony also is utilizing Kinoma Player on their PDA's, So you can be assured your production is going to look better than you ever dreamed possible.

3) Tribeworks Support is- simply put superb. Mobile list serve gets an answer to your problems quickly . You may get answers from programmers and or other users of iShell that will get you fixed up in no time. All the people I have dealt with have been great and helpful, and I have never once sat for an hour on the phone going through 40 voice recognition questions to get to the right help or had to punch in a g-zillion numbers to get there. Friendly, helpful and caring is the atmosphere in Tribeworks.

While I could write a full feature by feature description that would excite you as it does me. I think if you want to produce media, of what ever type, genre, vertical discipline of industry. I know you will love the open door to full blown multimedia production. I believe even Walt Disney would be excited over iShell Mobile! I do have to mention one thing, In this last version, loved the API calls to note pad and date book.

Further, they've only just begun, as listening to the mobile list, I know they plan to keep this software evolving into an even more robust piece of ingenious breakthrough than what it already is. Which don't take my word for it, go download some of the samples, and the software and the tutorials available and you too, may end up grinning like the proverbial Cheshire Cat and dancing around your chair, Palm in hand with what you just did!

Rating, 5 star all the way. And further, it's cross platform, grab your Mac OR Win version! I personally have shelved ALL the rest of my MM authoring software,(yep, I've got it all) as the Tribeworks Products both, iShell 3 (Mac anc Win) and the new iShell Mobile can do anything in any genre for any dicipline of industry or digital publishing needs.

This is software that allows your imagination to take over, with simple drag and drop interface, produce things that will blow everyone's mind!
One word of warning, don't let your clients look over your shoulder, while you work! You probably won't want them to see how easy it is! I have now stopped my ongoing quest for the most perfect multimedia development software, I've been searching since the 80's! Here it is!

Once you download it, you'll know why I'm excited and why I can't write a small review.!

A Happy, Delighted Customer
