Who we are

PalmDB is a catalog of digital applications for legacy Palm OS devices. PalmDB is run and operated by fans for fans of Palm handhelds and is not affiliated with the former Palm Computing company or its current property holders in any way. PalmDB exists solely for the purpose of preserving Palm OS and the work of its countless talented app developers, not for piracy or for profit.

Terms of Service

PalmDB hosts user-submitted content. All registered users in good standing may freely upload files related to Palm OS, including but not limited to apps, media, and other software. All third-party files must be uploaded in the intent of preservation only, not for piracy or personal gain. Uploading files unrelated to Palm OS is strictly forbidden, and any repeat or deliberate attempts to do so will result in a user ban. While PalmDB employs best efforts to moderate content for quality and relevancy control, PalmDB accepts no responsibility for user-submitted content found to be in violation of these terms.


Apps hosted on this site are considered Abandonware and are no longer officially supported in any way. PalmDB makes no guarantees that hosted apps will function as intended, and does not provide troubleshooting or customer support. PalmDB accepts no responsibility for any damages caused by content hosted on this site.
