 Remember the PalmPilot?  Now you can emulate hundreds of apps in your browser

The PalmPilot was one of the most influential mobile devices of the 1990s, helping Palm become a dominant player in the technology industry.

Now you can use hundreds of apps and games created for it again in your browser thanks to The Internet Archive🇧🇷

The Internet Archive released a library of programs created for the PalmPilot, a PDA released in 1997 that became a huge hit. The collection includes over 500 games and apps, accessible from any desktop or mobile browser.

To make the experience as authentic as possible, you can try it on a mobile browser.

The online emulator works with an integrated version of CloudpilotEmu, an existing PalmOS emulator. Many of the apps still lack metadata, but everything is functional except features like IR, which cannot be fully emulated on a modern device.

Many of the apps are simple utilities like a package delivery pricing tool or a tip calculator. However, there are some more advanced applications like a VNC client. The game collection includes checkers, chess, solitaire, lots of Tetris clones, a Frogger clone, and more.
