article.gifIII. Palm Freeware - 4. NekoCat


  • Version : 4.5 (July 2009)
  • Freeware for :
  • Language :
  • Screen :
  • Downloadable File : (46 Kb)

NekoCat is a little cat that sits on your Palm and chases the food (bird, mouse or fish) that you tick on the screen until he catches it. This so cute little cat then goes through a series of absolutely adorable activities, such as cleaning himself and taking a nap.

NekoCat Source Code

I have ported NekoCat in different languages and development tools, that was a very good exercise for me in all these tools. NekoCat is even a sample software for all these tools. So, the NekoCat source code is open and free.

Updates Description

4.5 (07/28/09)
- added 320x480 screen mode for Palm devices equiped with such a wide screen
- cat's food can be moved using Palm's 5 Way Nav

4.4 (09/17/07)
- recompiled this program with the latest iziBasic version 6.1 to avoid device freezes or soft resets on some devices

4.3 (11/04/05)
- Bug fix: the small images checkbox now refreshes when setting to default values in the options

4.2 (02/23/05)
- Recompiling this program with the latest iziBasic version 5.0 led to a 12 KB (-9%) decrease of the program's foot print

4.1 (01/19/05)
- source code upgrade for the food selection checkboxes: for a better and smoother displaying, they are now refreshed instead of being rebuilt when changing food

4.0 (01/04/05)
- added an option to switch to small images for devices with high resolution screen

3.0 (12/02/04)
- switched reference source code from HSPascal to iziBasic, this was a complete rewrite of this software!
- removed a white square appearing on the cat when moving the food in the case food was over the cat
- NekoCat now remembers last status when exiting

2.3 (09/18/02)
- added Donation information
- upgraded this help file

2.2 (07/05/02)
- NekoCat could remain frozen. Now, it will freeze only if you double tick on the menu button (asked by people who like to see NekoCat in position!). Double ticking on the screen, choosing a menu option or selecting one of the foods will unfreeze it.

2.1 (05/25/02)
- minimum Palm OS version check
- code update for Palm OS < v3.5 compliancy
- code update for Palm OS v5 compliancy
- update of contact info (web site, e-mail)

2.0 (02/07/02)
- color version

1.2 (12/18/01)
- menu bar
- small icon
- cosmetic enhancements
- reset to default values in the options window

1.1 (12/03/01)
- options for customizing the different activities of NekoCat

1.0 (11/28/01)
- initial release

Hello Steven,

All of these applications run very smoothly in my daddy's Palm m515, so I have no idea what's going on in your device.

No runtime is required, iziBasic (the onboard compiler used to develop these applications) being building stand-alone applications (and that is one of its strenghts).

Maybe try reinstalling the previous versions and please report me what you get as a result...

Hi -- just downloaded the updates to iBClock, NekoCat and Numerus -- they all crash my Palm m515. Any thoughts? (Is there a runtime module I need to install?)

for the zire 21... use the OS2 prc... it works fine. Maybe because it is black/white and not greyscale...

Hello novosch,

It is the first feedback I receive about NekoCat not working in a specific device model.

Don't you see NekoCat at all or don't you see him move where ever you tick on the screen?

Hi aldweb,

I believe NekoCat is not working on my Zire 21. The program starts I see the menu and the food on top. I can also select a kind of food. Whatever I do, I never get to see NekoCat
What am I doing wrong, or is my device not supported?
