Now that the Zaurus Linux based PDA from Sharp is shipping, we've added to our growing stable of applications for the device with two new offerings:

tkcFTP - $9.95 - tkcFTP is a fast and easy to use FTP client. With tkcFTP you can grab any file, anywhere and at any time as long as you have an Internet connection. Have a file you've been working on that is too large to email from the Zaurus? Just use tkcFTP to connect to the server and upload it. Works with wireless connections as well as dial up CF modem connections or network connections. All the features you'd expect from an advanced FTP client.

tkcGallery = $9.95 - tkcGallery is meant to simplify working with digital images, specifically Compact Flash based Digital Cameras. With tkcGallery you can simply pop in the CF card from your digital camera and then browse, delete, rotate, select for slide show and play back your images. The Zaurus screen provides a quick and convenient way to better show off pictures while your on the go.

You can also purchase a bundle (tkcBundle) of all our embedded applications for only $69.95 which is a savings of over $25 if purchase separately. The bundle includes our other embedded applications:

tkcKapital - $19.95 - is an embedded version of our popular Kapital product for Linux. We've ported all the features that are useful and make sense for the Zaurus form factor as well as the ability to sync with Kapital 1.0 when it is available.

tkcJabber - $19.95 - is a full featured Jabber client with support for all the Instant Messaging transports you can imagine. Transport connection wizards make it easy to interface to AIM, MSN, Yahoo Chat, etc.

tkcExplorer - $9.95 - is an enhanced file manager for the Sharp Zaurus. We've put in all the features you need from a sophisticated file manager with a user interface that is easy to work with on a device such as the Zaurus.

tkcEditor - $14.95 - is more than just a simple Notepad application, it is a serious editor that provides many tools that are convenient for programmers as well, such as syntax highlighting for C++, HTML, SQL, Python, Perl, DTML, ColdFusion; a Search/Replace dialog, 'goto' line, and more.

tkcPainter - $4.95 - fills a need on the Sharp Zaurus for a basic paint application as well as a "Scribble" type application. You can select colors and brush size and draw directly on the screen for taking quick notes, and as a portable "white board".

tkcMahjongg - $4.95 - is our version of the popular game Mahjongg. We've included a huge library of background graphics and tiles as well as an enormous selection of tile layouts, there is even a tile builder so you can create your own.
