Using Handhelds in Kosovo  -  Tuesday, July 1st
We brought 55 Palm devices, mainly Palm m100s, with educational programs to two different schools, a public high school and a private English school.

Using Handhelds in Kosovo  -  Wednesday, June 4th
Discovery Ministry has been involved in Albania/Kosovo ever since 1999. After helping the Kosovars as refugees, now we are helping them rebuild their lives and homes in Kosovo. One way we are doing that is helping them learn English. With 80% unemployment, knowing English is a great help in getting a job. We are using games, activities, and Palm OS devices. The main program we are using is English Tester by Slawomir Magdziarz and Radoslaw Nowak. Although some of the tests are difficult, the students enjoy using them. Most are getting to use a mini-computer for the very first time!

We are in Kosovo right now and will return to the U.S. in a few weeks. We will write more on this unique opportunity when we get back.

Also updated is Bible With You which now includes bookmarks, new translations, and several Bible study aids.
Ideas for a New Program  -  Wednesday, April 30th
Do you have a great idea for a new program? Do you have a feature that you would like to see included in a new Bible program? A developer is looking to create some programs that will help believers make their Palm OS device more useful. He is also considering developing a new Bible program for the Palm OS. If there is a feature you would like him to include or if you have an idea for a program, even if it's already been done (there's always room for improvement), tell us about it.
