Thank you for trying TealOS.
TealOS gives your organizer or smart phone a flashy new
card-based application interface and popup wave launcher--just like the ones
found on newer webOS-based handhelds such as the Palm Pre. On older PalmOS
handhelds, it’s the next best thing to webOS.

Under Windows, run TPSETUP.EXE and follow the on-screen prompts
Use the Palm Install Tool (“Quick Install”) to install the file:
The Palm Install Tool comes
installed on your desktop computer as part of your original software package,
and is accessible from the Palm Desktop program as an icon on the left hand
This document also comes as a Palm document file OSDOC.PRC, which you can optionally install and view with our document reader TealDoc.
This manual uses the following terminology:
Rounded, rectangular areas on the Palm display screen that you can tap on with a stylus.
Physical pushbuttons on you device/phone case that you can depress with your finger
The row of two or four hardware buttons that are typically configured to launch frequently-used applications
The directional rocker switch located below the device display
Buttons located in a physical or virtual graffiti text entry area, if present
A memory technology that does not lose data even after complete power loss. In modern PalmOS handhelds, NAND flash memory chips are used.
Palm’s non-volatile file system, the part of PalmOS which uses a fixed block of normal RAM memory to speed up access to data stored in NAND flash memory.
The fixed block of normal RAM memory used by NVFS to speed up file access.
The TealPoint Operations Skin (TealOS), gives your handheld a fresh new look and feel. It provides a powerful and intuitive way to organize your activities and work flow, and resembles
the card-based interface of the new Palm Pre.
On PalmOS handhelds, it’s the next best thing to webOS.
TealOS consists of three primary interface elements:
The Home Screen is the place where you can find and organize your favorite applications. After running TealOS the first time, you can return to the Home Screen using the application launcher button on your handheld
In the middle of the screen, your current (last-accessed) applications appear as visual “cards” with thumbnail representations of your current (last) activity in each program.
At the bottom of the Home Screen, the optional Quick Launch Bar provides immediate access to your favorite apps.
The TealOS Launcher Screen provides access to all the programs installed on your handheld. You can slide up the Launcher Screen using the last icon in the Quick Launch Bar.
Swipe up and down to scroll the screen or left and right to change categories. Tap on an application’s icon to open it.
The Wave Launcher provides a quick way to jump to favorite applications without returning the Home Screen. You can use the wave launcher from within almost any program.
To bring up the Wave Launcher, do a quick stroke up from the bottom of the screen, being careful not to pause at the beginning of the stroke. Slide left or right to select an icon, and then release to jump to the selected app.
The Wave Launcher supports an alternate operating mode—the Card Wave—that lets you view, select, and delete cards for applications without returning to the Home Screen. (New in 1.35)
To switch the Wave Launcher to and from Card Mode, just drag it up to the top of the display.
The TealScan Home Screen will open the first time you run TealScan. From that point on, by default you can return to the Home Screen anytime simply by pressing your device’s hardware home button, or any of the application buttons as set up in the TealOS Activation Prefs screen.
The Home Screen will be empty the first time you run the program. From then on, a card will automatically be saved for every app you run. When you return to the TealOS Home Screen,
it will contain these thumbnail image “cards” for every application (up to 20) that you have recently visited. These cards represent all your recent activity, and offer an easy way to both see your status in different programs and easily resume what you were doing.
To shuffle cards, simply drag them left or right with a simple stroke of your finger or stylus. A slow simply moves the card, while a quick stroke lets you “throw” the row of cards multiple places or to one end of the card stack. You may also use the left or right arrows in the 5-way navigator to move the card stack.
To resume an activity, tap on a card to launch the corresponding application.
To discard a card, just tap and hold it with your finger or stylus and “toss” it upwards off the screen. Alternatively, pressing the up button on the 5-way navigator will discard the active card.
You may also choose the Discard all Cards item from the Cards menu to remove all unlocked cards at once. (New in 1.35)
To change the relative placement of cards, enter Ordering Mode in one of four ways:
· Drag a card downward, or
· Tap and Hold on a card for one second, or
· Tap in the Home Screen outside of a card
· Press the down button in the 5-way navigator
When you enter Ordering Mode, all the cards will shrink in size. To move a card, drag it downwards until it becomes translucent, and then drag it to another location in the stack. You can also use the 5-way navigator left and right buttons.
To move a card a long distance up or down the stack, you have two options:
1) Drag down a card, then quick swipe left or right. This will “throw” the card to another place in the stack. The distance it goes is proportional to how fast and long you swipe.
2) Drag down a card, then drag it to the left or right screen edge. Deck will slide automatically as long as you hold your stylus/finger still.
To exit Ordering Mode, press the 5-way navigator select
button, tap on a card or tap anywhere above or below the stack of cards.
Locking a card protects it from being discarded or being
replaced by a newly generated card.
To lock or unlock one or all cards, choose one of the Lock Card items under the Cards menu. (New in 1.35)
To adjust card options, select the Cards item from the Options title bar menu. Use it to select from the following choices:
This option allows you to set a lower limit on the number of cards that are created. Use this to conserve memory or to automatically delete cards that you no longer need. When new cards are created, if too many cards are already present, older unlocked cards will automatically be deleted to make more space. (New in 1.35)
When selected, a popup confirmation dialog will appear when you choose the Discard All Cards menu item. (New in 1.35)
Uncheck this item to prevent accidental unlocking of locked cards by tapping on the lock icon in the lower right corner of cards. (New in 1.50)
When this option is selected, the Home Screen opens with no cards visible; all cards are placed either to the left or right according to the L and R selector boxes to the right of this option. (New in 1.50)
When this option is selected, cards snap to the end of the card stack if dragged past the last card on the other end. If this option is unchecked, then cards can be dragged off screen, leaving just an arrow to indicated their presence. (New in 1.50)
Tap on the box to select the color of the arrows that appear to indicate that cards are entirely off-screen. (New in 1.50)
This option allows you to specify a list of applications that either generate or don’t generate cards. The selected list can either function as an exclusion list or an inclusion list, described below.
For some applications--particularly ones that periodically launch themselves to perform maintenance and other automated tasks—you may not want cards to be saved. Also, some apps launch other assistant “helper” apps, and you might not want separate cards for all components.
For these, select the Cards item from the Options title bar menu, choose the Disable for Selected Apps selection, and add the desired programs to the list using the Select Apps button.
TIP: When selecting applications be aware of separate apps that may have the same or similar names, and stub applications sometimes exist that call other application files. When this happens, you may need to select more than one app to correct exclude it. For instance, newer devices have both Multimail and Versamail email apps, even though both eventually run the same code, and the Bluetooth control panel exists as a separate application that is called by the Prefs app.
You may also choose instead to limit card creation to a specified list of applications. To do this, select the Cards item from the Options title bar menu, choose the Enable for Selected Apps selection, and then add the desired programs to the list using the Select Apps button. (New in 1.35)
The Quick Launch Bar at the bottom of the Home Screen provides an instant way to launch your favorite apps.
Tap on an icon in the bar to launch the corresponding application. By default, the rightmost button brings up the Launcher Screen, which you can also open with a swipe upwards from the top or center of the Quick Launch Bar (if enabled, a swipe up from the bottom normally brings up the wave launcher instead).
To customize the Quick Launch Bar, choose the Quick Launch Bar item from the title bar Options menu. You’ll be presented with the following options.
Select the box beneath a button icon to map that button to another application. You may choose any application in memory or on mounted card volumes.
You may also choose (Launcher) to make any button into opening the launcher screen.
After choosing an application, you
may also replace the button icon with a custom one loaded from an add-on Icon
Set. Tap on a button icon to change
it. See the chapter Customizing
Icons for more information.
(New in 1.35)
Uncheck this option if you don’t want the Quick Launch Bar to appear. You can still allow launcher buttons to appear using the option below.
When the Quick Launch Bar is hidden, you can enable this button to still show any Launcher buttons mapped on the Quick Launch Bar. If both the Quick Launch Bar and Launcher Button options are disabled, the only way left to open the launcher screen is with a press of the hardware Home button. (New in 1.35)
When this option is enabled, a gray background circle is added behind a button’s icon. The circle is added when the icon is generated, so after set the desired setting for this option before mapping a button to an application or loading icons from an Icon Set.
(New in 1.35)
The TealOS Launcher Screen gives you access to all applications installed on your device. It uses an updated but familiar icon interface similar to the standard PalmOS application launcher.
By default, you can open the Launcher Screen using:
· A press of the device Home button
· Tapping a launcher button on the Quick Launch Bar, if present
· Swiping up from the Quick Launch Bar
(start near the top of the bar if the Wave Launcher is enabled on the Home Screen).
To navigate, drag the whole screen up and down to scroll, or drag it left and right to change categories. You can also select a category directly by tapping on the category tab in the upper left hand corner. (New in 1.35)
To launch an application, tap on it.
You can also operate the applications screen using the 5-w ay navigator. The up, down, left, and right buttons function like their swipe counterparts. When you press the 5-way select button, the first visible icon is highlighted. You can then move the highlight with the directional buttons and press select again to open that application.
Applications can be categorized into 15 standard PalmOS categories, plus one Unfiled category. To edit categories, choose the Edit Categories item from the title bar Options menu.
To hide all the applications in a particular category,
uncheck the box next to the category name.
Using this feature, you can reserve one category for unused icons, and
uncheck it to hide the icons trying to sell you stuff that come preloaded on
To assign categories to different applications, select Categorize from the title bar Apps menu.
Most of the time, TealOS will automatically detect when applications are added to your device or deleted, and update its icon database accordingly. In cases where a new application is missed, or to manually update changes to apps stored on a removable storage card, select the Scan for Icon Changes item under the Tool menu, which scans for any new applications.
To do a more extensive scan, select the Force Full Icon Scan menu item. This menu rebuilds the icon database for all applications, updating the images to include any changes to selected icon effects. Any imported icon images from icon sets will be replaced with the application’s default icon.
Choose the Preferences item in the Options menu and select Launcher to access the following options:
(New in 1.35)
Enable this option to mix card-based applications with RAM-based ones, allowing you to categorize them.
Enable this option to hide the All category. If the category is currently set to All, it’s not hidden until another category is selected.
When this option is selected, icons are shown in a denser grid, appearing in four columns instead of three on portrait-oriented displays.
When this option is enabled, movement of the Launcher Screen is limited to moving either horizontally or vertically, but not both at the same time.
This option adds a background circle behind each application icon when that application’s icon is scanned. After changing this option, select the Force Full Icon Scan item under the Tools menu to reload all application icons.
This option turns off the transparency effect on the Launcher Screen and uses a solid background instead, which greatly reduces the delay befor the Launcher Screen opens.
(New in 1.50)
When selected, this option causes TealOS to open with the Launcher Screen instead of the Home Screen (New in 1.50)
This option adds a blue dot to the left of the application name for card-based apps. This is a handy way to differentiate card and RAM-based apps when commingling them on the Launcher Screen. (New in 1.50)
When this option is selected, the Quick Launch Bar automatically hides itself when the Launcher Screen is opened, even if the Quick Launch Bar is set to appear on the Home Screen. (New in 1.50)
When this option is selected, names are hidden in the Launcher Screen leaving potentially more space for additional icons.
(New in 1.50)
This option specifies what is done when characters are typed on the Home Screen.
(New in 1.50)
Opens the launcher screen and seeks to the first icon starting with that letter
Opens a modified launcher screen that shows all matches to one or more characters entered
The Launcher Screen category
is set to the selected category whenever TealOS returns from another
application. Set this option to Last
Category to remember the previous setting.
Typing on the launcher screen selects the first application that begins with that letter. If you start typing on the Home Screen, however, TealOS goes into Type to Find mode, allowing you to search for applications by one or more letters. (New in 1.50)
To use Type to Find, simply start typing on the Home Screen. If you have your launcher options set to co-mingle card and RAM apps, then card and RAM matches will be intermixed. If not, card-based matches will only appear if not RAM-based matches are found.
Using the Wave Launcher, you can extend the power of TealOS beyond the Home Screen to switch cards (programs) even when inside other apps.
To bring up the Wave Launcher, do a quick swipe up from the bottom of the display, holding the pen down after making the stroke. A graphic “wave” of five icons will appear, highlighting the icon immediately above your finger/stylus. To select that application, just let go. To cancel, swipe back down to the bottom of the screen before releasing.
The Wave Launcher can also come up in a secondary
mode called the Card Wave, that is covered separately in the next
To switch between modes, drag the wave up towards the top of the screen. You may drag it down and back up again repeatedly to switch back and forth between modes in the same pen stroke (New in 1.35).
HINT: When bringing up the wave launcher, start in the very bottom center of the display and be sure to have your finger/pen moving when it first touches the screen. Move quickly and Do Not Pause before starting to move. If your device has a dedicated hardware text input area, you may begin the stroke within the text writing area.
To customize the Wave Launcher, choose the Wave Launcher item from the title bar Options menu. You’ll be presented with the following options.
Select the box beneath a icon to map that icon to another application.
You may choose from both applications in main memory or on external storage cards. (New in 1.50)
After choosing an application, you
may also replace the icon with a custom one loaded from an add-on Icon Set. Tap on an icon to change it. See the chapter Customizing Icons for
(New in 1.35)
When this option is enabled, a gray background circle is added behind an icon. The circle is added when the icon is generated, so after set the desired setting for this option before mapping an icon to an application or loading icons from an Icon Set.
When this option is enabled, you can discard cards in the card wave by
flicking them quickly up while still holding down the pen. Using this feature, you can discard more
than one card in one card wave session.
(New in 1.50)
This option lets you select whether an up swipe initially brings up the Wave Launcher in Icon Mode or Card Mode, or remembers the last state set.
When this option is selected, the Wave Launcher is enabled on the TealOS Home Screen. Since a similar up stroke from the Quick Launch Bar is used to bring up the Launcher Screen, you have to start that stroke near the top of the Quick Launch Bar when this option is enabled.
This option allows you to specify a list of applications that either do or do not support the Wave Launcher. The selected list can either function as an exclusion list or an inclusion list, described below. You may also disable the Wave Launcher altogether.
You may wish to disable the Wave Launcher in drawing apps and similar programs that may use a similar pen stroke. To do so, choose the Disable for Selected Apps selection, and add the desired programs to the list using the Select Apps button.
You may also choose instead to limit the Wave Launcher to a specified list of applications. To do this, choose the Enable for Selected Apps selection, and then add the desired programs to the list using the Select Apps button. (New in 1.35)
The Wave Launcher can also come up in a secondary mode called the Card Wave, that lets you open and discard cards directly from within other applications. While in the TealOS Home Screen, however the Wave Launcher always comes up in Icon (non-card) mode. (New in 1.35).
Bring up the Wave Launcher normally as described in the previous chapter, and switch to the Card Wave if necessary. To switch between modes, drag the wave up towards the top of the screen until it changes appearance. You may drag it down and back up again repeatedly to switch back and forth between modes in the same pen stroke
The image of an active card is shown on the wave, while small icons will appear at the bottom of the screen, representing all open cards. Simply swipe left or right (continuing to hold down the stylus or finger) to select a different card in the stack.
To open a card, just release the stylus or finger, or to close the Card Wave, drag it to the bottom of the screen instead.
NOTE: You may now select cards from both applications in main memory or on external storage cards. (New in 1.50)
To discard a card, quickly flick up and release the card in one smooth motion, making sure your finger/stylus is still moving when released. Keep keeping the pen between the top and bottom borders of the active wave area to avoid inadvertently closing the wave or switching modes.
If the Allow Multi-Discard option is enabled, you can quickly flick to discard cards without lifting your stylus or finger, thus allowing you to discard more than one card in a single wave session. (New in 1.50)
Cards shown with an underline are locked and cannot be discarded. (New in 1.50)
Card Swipes give you another way to switch cards without returning to the Home Screen.
To change cards, quickly swipe from one of the bottom corners of the screen towards the other. An icon will briefly appear in the corner as the card is changed. As with the Wave Launcher, make sure pen or finger is already moving by the time it touches the screen, and keep it moving past the screen center.
Swipes work like turning a page, following the same motions used to move cards on the TealOS Home Screen. A swipe from right to left goes to the next card, and a swipe from left to right returns to the last.
To customize Card Swipes, choose the Swipes item from the title bar Options menu. You’ll be presented with the following options.
This option allows you to specify a list of applications that either do or do not support the Swipes. The selected list can either function as an exclusion list or an inclusion list, described below. You may also disable Swipes altogether. Choose Select Apps to add or remove applications from the list.
TealOS supports numerous customization options.
You can select your own JPEG image to be used as a background for the Home Screen. To do so, choose Import JPEG from the drop-down Tool menu in the title bar, and select a JPEG format image to import, typically from images that you’ve store on your SD card. To change back to the default image, select Use Default.
The image you choose should be at least as large as your device display at its largest size, typically 320x320 or 320x480 pixels. If you image is larger, only the upper left corner will be used.
HINT: If your display size is variable due to a software text writing area, you should import the image with your display at the largest vertical size. For devices with variable landscape-capable displays, a different background image can be loaded for each screen width.
The TealOS Title Bar supports icons that show the current battery level, Bluetooth status, phone signal level, sound mute state, and voicemail.
The remaining space can show user-selectable text. To customize it, select the Preferences item from the Options menu and choose the Text button. Choose from the following options:
When enabled, this option globally replaces standard system fonts with thinner “fancy” ones. The Auto option enables thin fonts in all places except buttons.
This options lets you choose which font to use in the Title Bar.
Respectively specifies text to be show left and center-justified in the title bar. If the center text if left blank, the left text may fill the entire title bar space not occupied by icons.
The Title Bar text may one or more of the following macros to insert useful information:
$m<n> - Free Memory
$M<n> - Free Removable Memory
Specifies the amount of free memory on volume number <n>. Storage volumes are referenced using sequential numbers, with 0 representing main memory. On devices with non-volatile memory, this is followed by the internal hidden flash volume. The internal USB storage volumes, if any comes next, followed by any external flash cards.
If the number used exceeds the number of mounted storage volumes, the highest number volume is returned. $m (in lower case) always shows the amount of free memory, while $M (in upper case) shows 0 if the selected volume is not a removable card.
m0 free in RAM, M9 on card
$b – Battery percentage
$B – Battery volts
$s – Phone signal level
$S – Wi-fi signal level
Phone or Wi-fi signal level expressed as a percentage
$d – Date in short format
$D – Date in long format
$t – Time
Date or time.
With TealOS, you can use Icon Sets to replace the icons used on the Launcher Screen, Wave Launcher, and Quick Launch Bar.
To replace icons on the Launcher Screen, select the Launcher Icons item from the Apps menu. The Launcher Icons screen will open, presenting a list of applications and the following options:
Icon Sets contain images in TealPaint Image Database format. Each icon is stored individually as a separate 64 x 48 pixel, 8-bit image (32 x 24 in low-resolution). If an image is larger, only the upper left corner is used.
Select the Import button to load a replacement icon from an Icon Set. In the subsequent screen, select the Load button to open an Icon Set, Edit to edit a loaded Icon set (if TealPaint is installed), or tap on an icon to import it.
Select the Export button to save an icon already linked to an application as a new image in an Icon Set.
Select the Default button to revert an application to its internal default image.
When this item is selected, a gray
circle is added to the background behind
You can still launch the standard system launcher application using the Run Std Launcher Once menu item, or re-enable the system launcher temporarily using the Re-Enable Std Launcher menu. However, you can perform common application management functions from within the TealOS Home Screen using the following menus:
The Info Screen shows the version, size, or number of records for any application in memory or on your SD card.
Select the Beam and Send menus to send a
selected application to another device via infrared or Bluetooth.
Select the Copy menu to copy or move an application between main memory and an SD card. Applications on an SD card should be stored in the PALM/Launcher/ folder.
To delete an application or file, choose the Delete menu. When deleting applications, you can optionally choose to delete the program’s related data files and settings saved in the system preferences database. A program’s data files and settings are identified as any files having the same Creator ID value as the application.
Normally, you want to leave these options checked. If so, the delete operation will act like the standard system Launcher.
The following additional customization options can be found under the Preferences menu item.
The Activation Prefs screen lets you select how TealOS is activated.
Selects which buttons, if any, will bring up the TealOS Home Screen. You can choose any of the typically four hardware application buttons, or the other option to map a dedicated hardware Home button.
TIP: By default, most modern Palm handhelds use either hard button 1 or hard button 4 as a home button, while older devices use a dedicated home button that free all four applications buttons for mapping to applications or other use.
When selected, TealOS returns to the Home Screen after a phone call ends.
(New in 1.50)
When selected, TealOS returns to the Home Screen after unlocking the device from the standard Security lock screen.
(New in 1.50)
When this option is selected, TealOS will not override the functionality of a hard button if that button is not mapped to the standard launcher. Use this option to support third party apps that temporarily and globally map the home button to itself.
(New in 1.50)
Select from the following choices:
Chooses whether the signal display graph reflects the signal strength of integrated Treo/Centro phone hardware (Phone A), standard Palm telephony library (Phone B), or Wi-Fi. (New in 1.35)
TIP: Do not select Phone B on a device without integrated phone hardware, as it my cause PalmOS to search for an external Bluetooth phone every time you start TealOS, introducing a long delay at startup.
Deselect this option to disable the Home Page background image.
(New in 1.35)
Deselect this option to hide the Quick Launch Bar.
(New in 1.35)
Select this option to show a launcher button mapped on the Quick Launch Bar even if the rest of the bar is hidden.
(New in 1.35)
Chooses this option to reverse the title bar colors as black on white instead of white on black.
(New in 1.35).
Some applications use hidden characters to force themselves to display at the top of the list of icons in the Standard Launcher. When this option is selected, TealOS ignores these characters so all apps appear in true alphabetical order.
(New in 1.35).
When selected, the corners of the Home Screen are displayed rounded to match the style of webOS devices.
(New in 1.35).
When selected, the corners of cards are displayed rounded to match the style of webOS devices.
(New in 1.35).
When selected, cards are shown in exactly one-half size, which gives them a sharp appearance and faster response. When this option is unchecked, cards are drawn slightly larger to better match the card sizes under webOS.
(New in 1.35).
Sets the background color to be used if the background is disabled or for regions where the selected background image is too small.
(New in 1.50).
The following choices allow you to disable animations to increase TealOS speed:
(New in 1.35).
The following choices allow you to decide which image processing techniques are applied to icons when they are scanned. These effects are normally used to improve icon appearance and better match them to a dark background and the webOS graphic style:
Choose from the following options:
By adjusting priority at which TealOS detects pen strokes, you can resolve some conflicts between TealOS and other apps, like text input utilities that read strokes themselves. (New in 1.35).
Set TealOS to a higher priority to overcome situations when you can’t bring up a Wave Launcher when another app is active, or to a lower priority when you the Wave Launcher is coming up when you want another background app instead.
You may not be able to resolve a conflict if you are trying to set TealOS to the minimum or maximum priority and the interfering app is already at that same priority. When two apps are set to the same priority it is unpredictable which one will receive pen strokes.
PalmOS and many applications can become unstable or lose data when your main free memory drops too low. To keep your device stable TealOS warns you when memory drops below a specified level and disables functions that use memory as less and less free memory is available. (New in 1.35).
You can set the minimum free memory needed to enable the following functions:
