Among the many accessories that already come with a PDA, there are also several different types of software that can be installed on your PDA. One of these installations for software, includes different languages. Software can include English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and a few others. The software program once installed on your PDA can have different features. Although most software is basically the same, some forms are actually different.
For example, if you have installed software on your PDA that is going to teach you Spanish, it may give you the English translation first, and then the Spanish translation so you can learn it. Some software language also teaches you the spelling of the translated word.
However, software that is for a regular PC in not going to work on a PDA. These files are too big and PDA files are compressed so that they will fit on the PDA and work properly. The main thing to remember is that some files are made for the PDA while there are others that were not.
For example, if you have the encyclopedia Encarta on your desktop computer and you think it will work for the PDA, it won’t. It is a totally different filing system than that of your desktop computer. Some are fat 32, others are NTSF and others have yet still other file systems. So there are software variations. At least the PDA has a lot of software of its own with many different programs especially for the PDA. Software on PDA’s doesn’t seem to take quite as long to install either. If your PDA stops responding after you have recently installed software, simply reset your PDA. Most PDA’s have reset buttons on the back panel.
A note about resetting your PDA is that it does not remove information, it simply shuts down just as you desktop computer would do. Software that is installed on your PDA to teach different languages can often be valuable if you are taking a trip or vacation to the location that speaks the alternate language.
However, it can also prove to be useful for classes one might take in some type of educational aspect. Language software for a PDA is far less expensive than other forms of software for a desktop computer in order to learn another language. In many cases, the language software can also be upgraded for a small fee once you have sufficiently gained the knowledge of the language you are learning. Then, after you have achieved the fullness of learning an alternate language with the aid of your PDA, the software for the language can be easily removed or uninstalled from your PDA, freeing up memory and space; therefore making room for other software installations or files you might want to put on your PDA.
After you decide to uninstall software or a program from your PDA, reset your PDA as if you were refreshing your desktop computer. The end result is basically the same. Your PDA will run faster and probably more effectively.
