A root around the mobile2market catalogue turned up the following:

Town compass LLC have recently released a free version of DataViewer for the Smartphone. The application itself is free to download but most of the databases you have to pay for, although there are a couple of free ones.

Databases include full encyclopedias, town/city directories, bible, stories, reference matterial and so on. The application features:

There are three easy ways to find stored information with the DataViewer: 3-Tier Hierarchy, Fingerpoint® Alphabetical Index, and Keyword Search.

The DataViewer Hierarchy is based on creating categorized lists organized by Subject, Category and SubCategory. 'Associated' lists are located next to one another, so browsing lists becomes intuitive. Visual Guide

The Fingerpoint® Alphabetical Index is a roster of all lists in the Database. When a list is selected from the Index, you are returned to its place in the Hierarchy, which also allows you to see other 'associated' lists. Visual Guide

You can search Databases using the Search feature. Enter a keyword to search every record in your loaded Database. Visual Guide

The DataViewer also allows you to store multiple Databases on your Smartphone, and switch between them without leaving the program. Visual Guide

Display
"Font Setting Options" allows you to select the text you are most comfortable reading. Change Details Page text from our Town Compass® custom font to other system default fonts. You can also make text a larger size for easier reading, or smaller size for compacted viewing! DataViewer takes advantage of Microsoft's® ClearType® font technology, which gives users a much more pleasant reading experience. Visual Guide

Not only do you see information in list form, but each individual record is displayed on an entire screen to minimize scrolling. Visual Guide

Each Database also comes with a colorful Cover Page. Visual Guide

Interactive Features:

"Footnote Lookup" inserts links to footnotes within text. Click on a footnote and a pop-up window appears explaining the footnote. No need to search a glossary or bibliography list -- clicking on the footnote lets you keep your place in the text field window! Visual Guide

"Tap & Dial" allows 1-click dialing for Smartphones. All Databases with phone numbers, such as our City Directories and Business Books of Lists, are now mobile communications hubs. Visual Guide

"Infrared Beaming" enables information sharing through your Smartphone's IR (infrared) port to other Smartphones. Beam non-commercial Databases to your friends and acquaintances. Visual Guide

Email & URL Hyperlinks are hot, so email- & Internet-enabled devices can take advantage of easier communication and information retrieval. Visual Guide


To download the application, or look through the list of databases, visit the Pocket directory website
