Palm Pre - How to use epocrates with Classic

Also helpful for installing epocreates:

I can confirm Epocrates is up and running on classic using the setup.prc. Run it in classic and it will sync up with epocrates server and download it!
You download this from while on a palm device. OR
by gtrickingh the server into thinking you are on a palm device.
From a pretty old post in another forum: instructions for firefox (on your computer):
type in about:config in the title bar.
right click, select new/string. enter :
'general.useragent.override' for the preference, and 'Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; PalmSource/Palm-TunX; Blazer/4.3) 16;320x448' as the value.

this fools the server into thinking that youfre connecting from a palm device.
navigate to
click ginstall nowh
save to your location of choice, and move setup.prc to your classicapps folder on your pre.
Run classic on your pre and self-explanatory from here on.
