Fling it

Fling it FlingIt™ allows users to instantaneously "fling" Web pages from the desktop computer to the Palm OS computer. Students can decide whether or not to include graphics and determine the link depth of the captured Web pages. Students can then view Web-based content at home, on the bus, or in their seats. FlingIt sites can also be beamed from one Palm computer to another for the sharing of Web-based resources. FlingIt is used in classrooms for offline research (of online sources), creating a personal reference library, and group research projects, among other applications.
