Are you a fitness and exercise fanatic? If you own a Palm Pre, you can download one or two apps that focus on your fitness and well being, but most Palm Pre apps are not free and the list for Palm Pre apps in general is slim.

The simple solution is to purchase MotionApps Classic, which lets Palm’s new handset run many of the 30,000 programs written for the old PalmOS platform.
