Spectrum emulator for PalmOS
I've tried a few freeware emulators the last couple of days, but all they do is crash my Palm Tungsten.
I found ArmZX, and installed a trial version. Manic Miner worked straightaway! I tried a couple more games, and then bought it. It's a great piece of software. The Tungsten isn't really what you want to play arcade games on, so you have to pick your games carefully because of the control method (tapping an image of a Spectrum keyboard, or using the Palm's "joystick").
Actually, I've since found that you can re-program the Palm's buttons to Spectrum keys which helps, but you still don't to be using much more than left/right/fire!
