Mobile callsign lookup app released for Palm WebOS Phones (Pre and Pixi)
I've just released a free beta test vesion of Hamster for WebOS phones (Palm Pre and Pixi). If you have a Pre or Pixi from Palm, you can download the free app at this link or go to the Palm Beta App Catalog to find it.
Hamster provides callsign lookups using the QRZ XML Logbook Data Service. Using Hamster, you can search QRZ’s database of callsigns. Search results are displayed in a summary list, including the QRZ picture if available. Tapping on the summary entry displays more detail (including e-mail address, and website URL - if available on QRZ) and provides the ability to quickly display a Google Maps image of their location. Each contact can be saved to a “Favorites” list. Future additions will include the ability to save callsign results to custom lists, and to create and export call logs for use in desktop logging software.
Try it out and let me know if you have any ideas for the future!

Reason: More information
Do you have an application for the Blackberry or the Itouch?

Thanks Rob! Still using the BETA version of Hamster.....going to download the paid version soon.
