stands for easy Basic
for Palm. It targets all kinds of developers and should be a very good tool for newbee programmers. Skilled programmers will also find in iziBasic
a tool to develop very quickly and easily various types of software.iziBasic
is a high level development compiler which builds Stand-alone applications. The great thing is that it does all of that directly on-board of your Palm OS based device.
Source codes are easily written using:
- either the Memo Pad application which is shipped with all Palm OS devices,
- or an on-board third party DOC editor of your choice.
As its name also states it, iziBasic
uses the BASIC high level and very easy to learn development language, a customized subset of it to be
precise. You will discover how easy and quick it is to develop software with iziBasic
when the more common development tools available on the Palm OS platform usually require pretty good development skills.
A wonderful review, very positive and precise, was written for iziBasic
on the famous English Palm247
website. You may access to this review by clicking on the link here after: http://www.clieuk.co.uk/izibasic.shtml/

Thanks for purchasing iziBasic
. All upgrades, minor as well as major ones, are free, you only buy this software once!
Users testimonials24-Jul-04 by Guilherme Migu้isThis is a killer tool for standard GUI Palm OS applications development! It uses standard Palm OS API controls and it's faster than many popular interpreted C's and BASIC's for Palm OS! It also builds standard stand-alone Palm OS executables "onboard" - no runtime distribution!
Impressive!05-Aug-04 by jdebayThis is a must have for anyone doing RAD for palm os.
This is a system that is five stars plus. documentation is very good for initial release. Sample programs are great. We just need to support this system.27-Oct-04 by YAM GuyI'm a newbee programmer who wanted to do more with my Palm, and make my own programs for "fun", and I found iziBasic so easy to learn and use!!! Easy but powerfull! It's so fun to code / debug / test and I fell very happy when I see my own programs running!
Very good job!!!30-Nov-04 by Chuck NormanVery powerful program, especially for the low cost. Creates stand alone applications easily. I was able to build and debug a 400+ line program in a few hours. Execution speeds are very fast. Questions were answered promptly on the developer's forum. Support has been first class; better than most commercial programs. This package has made it fun to program on the Palm with the simplicity of the BASIC language.12-Dec-04 by Boris BelferI have used NSBasic for a long time, then HandHeld Basic, Small Basic, and now - exclusively your software, because I can make changes right in front of my clients, adapting calculation to their specific needs. The software is not restricting my brain anymore. My engineering design got freedom!13-Dec-04 by Nelson Men้ndezI just purchased iziBasic and it is amazing. I forgot how much fun was to program en Basic. After reading your manual, I was able to create the program with not much hesitation.20-Dec-04 by Benoit HERVIERThe best PalmOS onboard basic.
