The old mobile music directory

Back in the early days of PalmSounds, before iOS came about I started this directory. I say directory, it was really just a long list. But I thought it might be useful to have it here, and if not useful then maybe nostalgic. Anyway, this was the very first version.

To be clear, this list almost certainly has a load of broken links in it. In fact, I think you’ll be quite lucky if any of them work. This page is more like a little bit of history rather than a working directory (list), so please treat it that way and don’t complain if the links are broken.

If you really seriously want to find something here and you can’t, you can always get in touch.

Please remember that this page does not get updated and broken links are very likely.
