TimeTable Viewer displays timetables stored in MemoPad that is the standard application of the Palm. So, you can easily make/modify timetables using your MemoPad.
Japanese characters (you know kanji ?) are displayed in the screen shots on this page, but it simply because Japanese character is used in the timetable data stored in MemoPad. If you use only English to define your timetable, only English characters are displayed, so don't worry.
Although Each record of MemoPad is limited within 4k byte, you can split a large timetable into several records.
You can categorize timetables by stations or lines, and quickly search among many timetables. Timetables can be stored in the proprietary database as well as the MemoPad. You can put almost all timetables into the database to shorten the time of HotSync. Furthermore you can prevent yourself from modifying timetables by mistake.
You can register 8 timetables into the pull down menu. You can pickup them by hardware buttons, Graffiti, and of course, short cut.
TimeTable Viewer display the countdown for the next train in a large font. If you don't need the large countdown, tap it to turn off, then only normal sized countdown is displayed.
The next train is not always the one you ride, because it won't be long before the train leaves, or the train does not go to your destination. So, you can tap the train you want to ride, and the countdown for the tapped train is displayed in a large font. The countdown in a normal font is always for the next train.
The list of stations and arrival time for at most 8 trains can be displayed with the display of the timetable.
The border on the screen between the timetable and the note or the arrival time can be movable. Make the timetable part to be large when you want to pay attention to the timetable, and make the part to be small when you lookup the note or the arrival time.
Tap a transfer station to switch to the timetable of the station. The clock stop at the transfer time, and the next train since then is selected.
You can set an alarm n minutes before the departure time. You can also adjust the alarm time.
TimeTable Viewer can display the detailed note for each train, such as the destination and the type of the train,
A lot more data are registered in the Japanese page.

I host the mailing list to announce and discuss everything about TimeTable Viewer. But in this mailing list, mainly Japanese is used. So, if you can read Japanese, please refer to the Japanese manual for the detail. If the number of users who can't read Japanese increased, I'll make the mailing list for English.
