* = Data tables are by default disabled on these machines. To 'port' them would require a major amount of work and, although possible, would be very time consuming. I'm a bit of a perfectionist so I would want to get every pixel right (like they are now on the 5mx for instance). Sadly, I simply do not have the time for this at the moment :-( I am definitely not ruling it out for future versions though. If you are really desperate to see them on your Revo/Osaris then there is a 'back door' which will enable them - create a folder called \System\Apps\JWIN\Tables\Enable.us on the drive JWIN is installed on and they will become available. They'll still be too big for the screen though....
In terms of language support, JWIN v2.10F currently works totally in the following languages:
This shows lots of useful information about your machine - it's especially handy for keeping an eye on those battery levels. The second view (below) is the new Scribble Pad. This is for jotting down anything from reminders to conversion results. There are several settings you can specify for this, including the pen size and colour....
JWIN is a small utility designed to be there "Just when you need it", and its main feature is the ability to convert between all common (and many obscure) unit values, but it also houses a host of other useful modules and utilities that people seem to need but can never find. It has been designed to be small enough and use as little memory as possible so that it can be left running all the time and switched to just as you need it! This is done via the use of a user definable hotkey (e.g. Ctrl+Fn+J).
The conversions available fall under several categories, and these can be accessed either by normal shortcut keys, the toolbar, or menu:
One of JWIN's other key features is Data Tables. These plug-in modules display all sorts of useful information:
To make your life easier - and to ensure JWIN works in a way to suit your own personal tastes, there are a wealth of preferences which can be set within the program:
Although JWIN is very easy to use and get to grips with, there are bound to be times when certain functions may require more detailed explanation. So if you're ever unsure, there is a full (but optional) help file included. This covers all of JWIN's most important features in easy to understand language.
As you can hopefully see from all these shots, JWIN conforms (as far as possible) to all the layout and design guides of the "real" built in EPOC programs. Using JWIN, will feel just like using one of the machine's own programs!
Does all the above sound good? Well, I can assure you it is! However, there is a small price to pay for this - JWIN is Shareware. This means that you have a trial period of 25 days in which you test JWIN to see if you like it and want to use it. If you do want to keep it, you MUST register with me (the author). Full details of how to do this are in the help file/readme file, but the most important thing you need to know is that the fee is a mere 10 UK Pounds or 15 US Dollars (or the equivalent in a different currency plus 10% extra).
|If you want to register this version right now, then you can do so by using the excellent RegNet service! Geofox users click here, all other EPOC device owners click here. Secure forms are available.|
Important note: If you have a version of PsiWin/EPOC Connect prior to v2.1, or you don't have a copy of Message Suite (any version) installed on your machine, then you will need to download INSTEXE.EXE. This program will install some essential components (i.e. the 'Add/remove' icon in Control Panel) onto your machine which you need to have in place before you can use SIS files. Once you have downloaded it, copy it across to your EPOC device and then (from "System") double tap on it.
To download either of the data files above you may need to right click on the link and select 'Save as...' or similar from the popup menu. Alternatively, if it's easier you can download the ZIP file versions. To install the new files, simply copy them to your EPOC machine, close JWIN if it's running and then place the files in the appropriate location. The currency file always goes in the C:\System\Apps\JWIN\ folder (even if JWIN is installed on D:\). The JWIN.dat file should go into the same folder as JWIN itself is installed in. In both cases you need to overwrite the existing file which will be present.
