Run Epocrates on the Palm Pre

If you own a Palm Pre, you've probably already figured this out. But, in case you haven't, let me teach you a little trick. You can run Epocrates on the Palm Pre through the MotionApp Classic emulator. Epocrates isn't currently available for webOS, so this is really the only way you can run the native application. You can also access Epocrates online via a mobile web browser by going to:

Warning: there have been reports of a "blue screen of death or BSOD" when you run MotionApp's Classic on the Palm Pre. It looks like people are looking at ways to fix this problem, so stay tuned.

  1. Just a few clarifications on our side, as this post might be confusing to our customers and your readers:
    - BSODs that Classic users were experiencing in Classic v1.0.3 were occurring because Palm omitted to include certain components of Classic in webOS 1.0.3 update. (The file that has “ROM” in its name is missing in webOS 1.0.3 and that is the cause of BSOD)
    - This can be “fixed” by applying webOS 1.0.4 as it does contain correct Classic files
