wikiHow:Palm Pre

EditAbout this application

The wikiHow Palm Pre app is built to make wikiHow's content easily readable on your Palm Pre. Our free, open source application allows you to search for any of our over 50,000 articles, read our featured article RSS feed, browse our set of stored articles on your phone, and bookmark articles you'd like to read later.

A bonus feature, the wikiHow Survival Kit will help you be prepared with articles that are permanently stored on your phone and available without a network. These articles provide detailed first aid instructions, wilderness survival tips, and guides for a range of uncommon scenarios such as controlling a spooked camel, landing a plane in an emergency, and safely swimming with piranhas. Click here for detailed instructions for using the app.
