You could also try acuxo. They have a new program that looks great and I will be purchasing soon. Thus, I can't tell you exactly how it compares to the others. This software is just points, not herbs.

> I, too, am interested in Pocket PC applications. Jeffers Software looks really good, but QPuncture (Benoit Vatere from So. California) just released a version of both herbs AND formulas. I've met him (Ben) at the Qi Gong conference in San Fran, and he seems to be really dedicated to both TCM and Computing. I have his QPuncture for the PC, which is a really good program including herbs, points and diagnosis. The program was too large to port to a portable device, however, so he had to split it up into smaller pocket programs.
> It would be great to hear from people who have tried either program on a pocket PC, and to hear your comments. Jeffers wants $99 for their Herbs "Professional" edition and another $124 (on Pay Pal) for the formulas program. If you get them both together (via pay pal) you pay $170. With Jeffers, it looks like you can do quite a bit of editing-at least more than you can do with QPuncture. QPuncture wants $69 for a single program with both herbs and formulas. There seems to be more information in QPuncture, though, and you can edit/add info.
