My Favorite and most used app would have to be the ebook reader PalmFiction. Convert your favorite font and this is hands down the best reader for the Palm OS.

Avantgo - great for the subway to and from work. I do a wireless sync on the way to the subway, and then have fresh content for my ride.

There are so many useful apps on my palm, but my favorite is Handmark's Solitaire. It's great for eating up time. The wife can shop happily once I find a comfortable seat and start a game (or a thousand games).

Calendar. With over ten years of input I'm the "go to guy" for historical information at work and around the family. Plus, it is common knowledge by those that know me, I'm on-time and know what's going on when I get there. Not always the case years ago.

My favorite Palm app is Splash ID. With all the various website passwords I've got to keep track of, it's nice to have them all safely locked up in one place where I can access them by remembering only one master PW. I also like the auto-generate password feature as well as the desktop one-click copy buttons.

DateBk5. Handspring was on to something when they decided to include DateBk3 as the default Calendar application on the Visor. DateBk5 offers so many useful features that should have been included in the standard PalmOS 5.4 Calendar app!

Avantgo: I have used it nearly every day for the last 5+ years, with a succession of 3 different PDAs. It works very well with my usage habits: I synch at the end of the work day and have a collection of fresh content for reading that evening on the commute or at home.

My favorite app on PalmOS is EReader - after 8 years of owning one PalmOS device or another, I spend more time reading ebooks than doing anything else. The freedom and ability to pack an entire library of reading in my pocket still blows my mind. Not having to turn pages and the ability to bookmark on the fly is pretty cool too. Guess I'm just a digital bookworm after all...

ZLauncher - I use it everyday and sometimes take it for granted. I could not imagine going back to the straight-out-of-the-box-launcher. I can configure so much within ZLauncher and let my creativity fly.

For me, I probably use Avant Go the most. Never have to buy a newspaper. I can customize channels so I have a my own TV guide, weather report for various cities, and keep up with Palm Infocenter!!! I can use it in conjunction with Google News and track news on specific topics. I can follow tech news and follow Sci-Fi channel. And all this for free!

A must have for any treo owner!

Chatteremail. Excellent background syncing and truly allows your Treo the flexibility of push or pull email. This is the app I use most often on my Treo and is a good example of how the Palm OS can give users flexibility and customization vs. apps available on the Blackberry and other devices.

LauncherX, because it dresses up and organizes my Treo in a much better way than the default's of Palm OS.

This probably shouldn't be my favorite app since the 700p should be a productivity device, but I can't get enough of Astraware's Sudoko. It's a great way to kill a few minutes here and there and I love the puzzle of the day feature.

Note Studio is a great program too, but I use the desktop component much more than the Palm one.

My favorite application is "Trip" by Hands High Software. I can track auto mileage for multiple companies/projects (or multiple cars if necessary). It is very easy to enter data and syncs with my PC so when I need a printed report for tax purposes, I can print a report showing as much detail as I want for the mileage and it calculates the miles driven times the standard cents-per-mile for tax purposes. I couldn't live without it.

My favorite time eater is Blazer. While I'm waiting for the bus, or in line anywhere, I'll log on and check out news updates, favorite blogs, Slashdot, or the markets. I tell myself it's healthier than a game because I learn things. And while there's lots of other browsers out there to try, Blazer does the trick so I've never felt the need to check the others out - I just use it.

There are many apps I like, but I would say the unsung hero on my Palm is NeatFreak. By starting with these two apps, before I added anything else, my 700P NEVER crashes and CallRec works flawlessly.

My Favorite Palm OS Application

KevinAgot @ 11/13/2006 10:17:36 PM # Q
Given the 100's of applications I've tested and/or purchased over the years, this is a very difficult question. There are several apps that help me with my daily productivity such as Agendus Professional, Repligo and Note Studio. There are daily readers that I turn to for my news feeds and books such as iSilo, MobiPocket and eReader. There are tons of apps on my Zire 72s that I use for reading the Bible, taking notes, pairing up the best wine for a certain meal, and calculating tips.

There are the silent workers who toil in the background waiting in the wings to be called up at a moments notice such as SnapCalc5 and the myriad dictionaries I have from BDicty, Pocket Lingo and Nexus. However, the software that ties everything together that I use the most often and frequently would have to be the workhorse of all of my applications on my PDA: ZLauncher.

ZL is an app uses themes and skins to your liking. You can have as many tabs as you want or none at all. ZL helps to save space my allowing me to move files onto my SD card in a smooth and unobtrusive manner. ZL can be as complex or simple as I'd like it to be. Critics (I was formerly one of them) have said that this application is rather bloated. But, anyone whose given this app a good test-drive will know that it is not bloated but sophisticated and willing to adapt to the users varied and sometimes, temperamental tastes. ZL's power comes from is intuitive interface that empowers PDA users who are novices or tech-savvy vets. I could go on and on about ZLauncher and its compatibility with a host of software, but, I'd just be rambling. ZLauncher gets my vote!!!

Parens Calculator

Sheltowee @ 11/13/2006 10:29:32 PM # Q
I have been using Parens for years. It is the best calculator for any device. When Rick Huebner stopped supporting it I was so disappointed. I wanted a cleaner look than the old round keys that were originally designed for a Palm IIIc. It was only very recently (admitting with some shame) that I discovered that the Parens calculator is the default calculator on the Treo. I never knew how to change from one function to the other until I read an article on the web. I was so glad to see it cleaned up. It isn't quite as good as Parens, because you can't do a drop down menu to choose which function you want, but I am always using the conversion utilities and other great features of this outstanding calculator.

AvantGo is my favorite because it lets me take the news with me on the train, to read in court, and in my free time. It is easy to use and best of all -- free. Of course, there are plenty of other great applications out there (e.g. eReader, MobiPocket Reader, Bejeweled) but AvantGo really accentuates what is special about a pocket device - portability of information in a useable form.

For me, AvantGo is also the best and most-used application i have in my Treo 650 (and in my previous and lost Tungsten T and in my first Palm, a IIIx).With Anvantgo i can read my favorite newspapers, plan routes, get tips for cities I visit worldwide, get conversion rates between different currencies... A Swiss knife all in all..

My favourite application is MobileDB. Many many reasons - can have multiple database tables. Can create, define my own fields. In effect, have a separate "walled off" area for each category of my critical data. Hundreds of pre-built databases to choose from on the internet.

I was once stuck at the Chicago airport due to a snowstorm. All the big name hotels were booked by stranded travelers. My savior was this Hotel database that I had downloaded (for free) - found a small hotel close to the airport to crash for the night for USD 65.00. Now that is real usefulness.

Absolutely love it. Cant live without it.

YAUC Yet another unit converter. (Free)

Besides the handy calculations it gives when I'm measuring stuff in the kitchen. It's always fun to be able to tell just how many stones or slugs are in a 6 lb bag of potatoes.

Or how about the frequent times when I need to convert between different units when doing moments of intertia calculations. kg-m2 to pound force inch sq second. Yeah.

Or 10 l/100km is the same as 23.5214583 mpg.

Or 1 Ampere hour is equal to .0373114 faraday.

No cell phone calculator will be able to replace this application anytime soon.

Bundled Software: DocumentsToGo is one of the greatest programs out there for the Palm. I know it's productivity software, and to some extent I miss the neat little things about WordSmith, but DocsToGo has allowed me to take notes in my college classes for the last four years, typing thousands of pages. Without DocsToGo, I'd be lugging a heavy laptop to class everyday, or worse, a pen and pad.

User Install: TCPMP lets my PalmT3 become my iPod. I can watch DVDs I rip from my collection or listen to any number of music albums on the run. Two important things: (1) it allows my Palm to be louder than RealPlayer does and (2) it's free!

Acid Solitaire

LarryGarfield @ 11/13/2006 11:12:14 PM # Q
I think the 3rd party app I use most is Acid Solitaire. No matter where I go or what I'm doing, if I have a few minutes of boredom, I can fill them with an attractive, simple game that lets me play "looser rules" Solitaire. :-) I have other games, but that's the one I play most.

Business app, I'd have to say WordSmith for use as a book reader for the same reason. No matter where I am, I have a book or four on hand to blow off some time.

I love TCPMP so much. Great performance over mmplayer and Kinoma and yet its free! TCPMP also takes advantage of the Tapwave Zodiac's ATI graphics for better video playback. The player has a very conservative and standard look and feel. Simplicity at it's best!

zadillo @ 11/13/2006 11:19:02 PM # Q
My favorite Palm OS app is Salling Clicker. It's basically allowed me to hook my PC into my TV and use it as an all purpose media device, and to remotely controly video playing apps, iTunes, etc. It works perfectly, it's really well designed. Couldn't ask for more in an app.

If I had to pick a runner up it would be TomTom Navigator, which also allows me to use my Treo 650 as a GPS device (and saved me $500-700 from buying a separate standalone GPS unit).

While there's a ton of good third-party PalmOS apps out there, my favourite PalmOS app by far is the excellent built-in Treo Messaging app. It's an almost perfectly designed piece of software; simple to use, easy to send group messages and the integration with the camera and Media app is beyond reproach.

HandyShopper

drw @ 11/13/2006 11:25:32 PM # Q
It's a toss up between HandyShopper and HandBase. I've used both since PalmOS 3.01. And if I haven't said it enough already I need a new pda with a thumbpad to replace my prehistoric T|C. It's so old carbon 14 dating won't even work on it.

What I want is a treo without the cell radio and antenna, but with wifi, bluetooth, nano thin, snappy 500mhz processor, and you can even keep the same old frankengarnet.

And while we're talking about favorites, PIC has been my favorite palm site for many years. It was rough for awhile when that other guy went to the other pda site because I used to like his articles, but Ryan has done an excellent job maintaining this site.

my fav app gotta be Pocket Quicken; it is even better than the desktop counterpart in some ways (because Intuit's Quicken sucks on both Windows and on the Mac); Pocket Quicken single-handedly keeps me using Quicken on the desktop (on a Mac), and is almost the last reason to keep using the Palm OS PDA... it becomes a sad story after this...

VersaMail v.3.5.1

palmstory @ 11/14/2006 12:29:53 AM # Q
Even though that VersaMail v.3.5.1 could use a lot more features, I am still somewhat in a Honeymoon Stage with my Treo 700p,and it has a lot to do with having Email on the go:)!

Sometimes my 700p suffers from a short freezes,or even freez crashes, where the Soft Reset is needed.

If I win this new 700P, I'd do a Hard Reset on my current 700p and give it away as a gift. By then, maybe the new 700P will come with an Updated Software, and will be more stable?

Having portable email is GREAT!!!

Can't wait for Palm and Verizon to make Dial Up Networking EvDO more reliable with my Mac OS 10.4.8 via Bluetooth! Also, if they could make the Phone Application more stable, with more features, and LOUDER without having to buy VolumeCare which didn't seem to make a difference!!!

If Palm added Notes,and Graffiti back, like on my Tungsten T3, I'd be even happier:)!!!

Keeping my fingers crossed:), but GOOD LUCK everyone:)!!!

Comic collection on FileMaker Mobile

Coach Ota @ 11/14/2006 4:06:42 AM # Q
To be honest, I don't use my Sony UX50 all that much any more. One thing I do use it for is my personal mission critical application: keeping track of my comic book collection. I've had my comics listed in a FileMaker Pro database since the early nineties. When FileMaker Mobile was announced, I jumped on it. Ever since, I've happily been keeping my comics in sync across four generations of PalmOS devices I've carried with me to comic shops and conventions.

VersaMail, for my near addiction to my email accounts. My very favorite and most important id DocToGo. It is the most indespensable app I have. I keep all my work documents on my palm (Treo 650). Excell and Word being the most essential, I use them every day. Work flow and planning are addressed several times a day. This is without a doubt, my favorite app.

My favorite app would have to be the built in calendar and contacts app. I have used S60 devices, UIQ devices, and Windows Moblie devices, and for some reason none of them match the simplicity and ease-of-use of these apps. I can sort my appointments in color-coded categories. And with one button press, I can start entering appointments. On the Nokia e61, I have to plow through several menus to get this same functionality.

I guess, from using lots of different portable OSes, I can really appreciate what gives the Palm it's "zen".

I was in the DC area last week and had to drive to a hospital and then drive from the hospital to dinner.

Being able to zoom in or out and then drag the map around makes this the best Palm OS application ever!

Launcher X is easily my favorite application and has been since my Tungsten T/2. I moved it to my T3 then to my current T5. I just can't be satisfied with the standard Palm launcher interface because I love the Launcher X tabs so much. It makes organizing my T5 so much easier and more intuitive. Obviously, it is my most used app. I have a few games and I like Docs to Go and the built in PIM's but the one app I was happy to spring for with hard cash was Launcher X. That says something.

Picture Dial by Toysoft

silversurfer20 @ 11/14/2006 9:48:14 AM # Q
There are so many applications for the Treo devices so it's very hard to narrow down just one single application. That being the case here my vote for usability and overall wow factor has to go to Picture Dial by Toysoft. This amazing little application gives the user a picture ribbon of photos and applications that can be put into any order. The picture ribbon will replace the favorites at the bottom of your main dialer screen and definitely will impress most folks who catch a glance at this impressive application. Being the main dialer screen is such a key focal point of the Treo this one definitely gets my vote! If you haven't you should definitely check it out.

HandyShopper

tOM Trottier @ 11/14/2006 10:22:22 AM # Q
Handyshopper makes it easy to go thru your needs in one order (fridge, cupboard, basement, ...) then fill them in another order (store, aisle). You look up items using a live substring. They can be easily sorted in various orders. Handyshopper keeps prices which are added as you check them off, or use the price field for weight. This is ideal for shopping or use it for packing for trips.

It also can be used for multiple (check)lists of items from a common pool, e.g., for recipes, cleaning, insurance, aviation, prayers, ...

And it's in your palm. And free.

My favorite Palm OS Application is "MyBible". I am a representative for a missionary organization in the Philippines and speak in churches every other week. My Bible allows me to have on hand all the material I need to write sermons on the road and or reference and do research where ever I am. This and other applications have allowed me to nearly do away with my notebook computer!

With explorer, I can clean up any mistakes I make in tweaking my palm or finding/adjusting/moving/copying/compressing files that I would otherwise not even be able to touch. I love the .zip compatibility so I can download and install files I download over the wifi.

I do not read for pleasure unless the book is available in eBook format (and you'd be surprised the number of quality titles available in this format). My TX is so much easier to hold than a bound book, and you never need a light source.

WorldMate Pro is nice when I travel for work. WorldMate keeps the time on my TX accurate as well as exchange rates and local weather.

Its hard to have a favorite application when you are still using a PalmVx and Omnisky modem as I am missing out on so much that the newer devices offer.

But if I had to pick one it would be: DateBK.
Been using it for 5+ years and it still keeps me out of trouble and ontime.

Favorite Palm OS application: Village Sim

MrPeabody @ 11/14/2006 11:33:43 AM # Q
By far, the game that I truly enjoyed playing on the Palm OS is Village Sim, by Last Day of Work. Sure, for this content, I could choose to pick from any of the essential work programs I use on a daily/hourly basis, but Village Sim provided worthwhile and _relaxing_ diversion, helping me to forget I was (still) using my Palm!

Treo

michael1 @ 11/14/2006 11:37:41 AM # Q
I've used gadgets from WAY back. Started with a Sharp Wizard OZ-8200 and used it until the hinge broke. I had an HP handheld PC that caught fire in its charger. Then I switched to Palm and never looked back. I had a program developed for my Pool Service for recording test results that has been in daily use for 6.5 years, all on Palm handhelds. I got my Treo 650 the day it became available in Austin TX. It's far and away my favorite all time gadget. It's a little long in the tooth now with scratches and nicks and chemical damage, but It's still used every day of the week. I'm looking foward to what comes next from Palm that advances the high end of the Treo line.

Treo 700p giveaway & what's my fave app

technical1 @ 11/14/2006 11:36:00 AM # Q
My favorite app is Datebk6. Why? This product is well thought out. It does pretty much anything I would think of or need. It is fairly direct for most everyday use & has a lot more under the hood for those who need more sophistication. There are tie-ins to other apps & it has been rock solid for me over the years.

The developer is very responsive & takes a responsible approach to his clients, the Db6 users.

What else could you want?

CESD even puts money fm Db6 to his Gorilla haven fund, so you are also contributing to support the preservation of animals... great features, support, plays well w/other apps, & you are helping a good cause. Tough to beat that.

Favorite Application

hgoldner @ 11/14/2006 11:42:25 AM # Q
My favorite application is Agendus for Palm. Since being born as ActionNames, the product completes the process which the Palm OS never quite did, that is the melding of the 4 main databases into linked, interactive records.

Without Agendus, I have to open EITHER of the 4 main databases (contacts, tasks, calendar, memo), but with it, I can link all of the various records which relate to each other.

I know that iambic regularly takes hits for stupid marketing tricks (the classic being trying to hijack Datebk's URL), and falling prey to Intuit's "rent, don't buy" the software by regularly making minimalist incremental upgrades.

But the bottom line is that like no other software, Agendus turns the PDA into a relational database of everything that this professional needs to function, and has done so for almost as long as I've used a Palm (my first unit was a III). And now that I have a TX, I can even tie email records into contacts, calendar, tasks and memos, like I can on my desktop in the office using TimeMatters.

Favorite App due to handicap

crawfpm @ 11/14/2006 11:46:23 AM # Q
Verichat (with its flaws and all) due to my wife's deafness. Being able to communicate with my wife when I am not at my desk via IM is incredible. My wife is deaf and cannot communicate via phone with me except via IMs. Verichat make conversations possible without the hugh cost of text messages. We both use Treo devices and being able to instantly communicate greatly reduces issues related to being deaf.

TealScript

fritzcat66 @ 11/14/2006 11:50:56 AM # Q
I have been a Palm user since the Pilot Professional, and I have relied upon Tealpoint's TealScript to tweak my Graffiti text entry since shortly after they released it.

It became especially important when I upgraded to my current PDA/phone, a Kyocera 7135, since all it came stock with was Graffiti II, which is very awkward for all us longtime original Graffiti users. TealScript essentially restored original Graffiti functionality to my Kyocera 7135, and I use it every single time I use my PDA. It's not flashy or sexy, but it runs reliably and quietly in the background, restarts properly upon reset, and Tealpoint is great about keeping it updated for all PalmOS devices.

Fav app. and why

dewald @ 11/14/2006 11:43:07 AM # Q
While I have a number of 'boring favorites' because they make my Treo useable (Versamail, Blazer, etc.), it is the 'little' apps that come in really handy. I would say I am growing quite fond of Google Maps, but for now I would list 'Directory Assistant' by Rick Whitt (http://home.triad.rr.com/rlwhitt/palm), followed closely by 'Flight Status' and 'Quick News'. Why 'Directory Assistant'?..... I get sent out to the nearest Subway on a Sunday night. I arrive at 9:01 p.m. and they closed at 9:00 p.m. I use 'Directory Assistant' to lookup up other Subways in the area, use the DIAL button to call the next closest one, and find out they are open to 10:00 p.m. By 9:20 p.m., I am home, mission accomplished.

Favorite Treo App

J$hort @ 11/14/2006 1:08:58 PM # Q
Favorite app and why...Hmm that's a tough one. Ok, the one I would be "lost" without. My TomTom Navigator GPS application is the winner. It all stems from device convergence of phone/mp3/pda and not having to carry around several devices. The Palm OS TomTom GPS software makes this possible. It has gotten me out of traffic jams, bad directions and a host of other location/direction queries. The built in integration with the Palm contacts database is a huge enhancement...and the Point of Intrest database provides thousands of landmarks... all on a 1 gig SD card. The even nicer part of the story is that I would have paid lots more for a seperate GPS hardware/software solution. So this application is affordable, integrated, easy to use and extremely helpful. I hope to experience it on a Treo 700 where my battery life, GPS portability (Bluetooth) and screen resolution issues of my Treo 600 would be solved.

bibliophile2 @ 11/14/2006 1:50:31 PM # Q
I have enjoyed using Satellite Forms (also know as MobileApp Developer). It has allowed a programming newby like me to create some useful programs for nutritional research projects. It is friendly to use with lots of power to grow with. I have been using it since it came out in 1997 - lately the support has improved tremendously since it was acquired by Thacker Network Technologies Inc. in 2004.
I also really like the shareware program, ClockPro, but I am looking for a similar program to use with newer Palm models (the hourly chimes has been really useful).

ChatterEmail is da bomb

Darkon @ 11/14/2006 1:57:18 PM # Q
There are literally dozens of apps I use on a weekly or daily basis on my Treo, but ChatterEmail is at the top of my list as my favorite Treo application. The reason is that, while the other applications are very useful, they could most likely run on any PalmOS device. But in order to get email anytime and anyhwere, you need an email application like Chatter running on a device like the Treo. While there are other email apps for the Treo, I consider Chatter to be the best for me and I use it all the time to keep on top of things.

VersaMail is my favorite palm app

Rome @ 11/14/2006 2:21:03 PM # Q
Chatter is very nice, and Snappermail is great too. But, at the end of the day, Versamail simply works for me and requires no additional flash ram space. The lastest version (3.5) also allows me to sync all my emails, contacts, and calendar with the exchange server at work. Yes, push is not yet built-in, but I actually find push to be annoying. If someone wants to get in touch with me immediately, they have three options:

- Call me
- Text Message me
- Instant Message me

Email was never meant for real-time communication, and I prefer it that way.

For me, that has always been the hallmark of a solid program.

Favorite App for Treo 700p Giveaway..

Packerbrett @ 11/14/2006 5:36:28 PM # Q
To pick one favorite palm application is very difficult. However, one that has saved me many times and continues to be indispensable is CryptInfo by NormSoft, Inc. It is an encrypted database for the Palm with a desktop companion. I have used CryptInfo way back on my Handspring Visor Deluxe several years ago and of course still use it today. It has been superseded by SplashID but I still use CryptInfo because it is paid for, works great, so why change. I have so many web id's, passwords along with computer id's and passwords that it becomes impossible to memorize all of them. This app is very handy to pull up and search for a web id and password to keep me going as I shop or do internet banking. You can create categories and do searches, it is a great application. If I am on my computer and just created an online account, I can enter the data via the pc desktop companion and it will get on to my Treo 600 the next time I sync. I also have my credit card info in there including my PIN in case I need emergency cash (Wow, I am giving a lot of info away here eh?). How many of us remember that PIN? With that info, I also paid for a haircut when I forgot my card but had all of the info in CryptInfo. In fact, when I wanted to enter this giveaway I realized I did not have a Palm Infocenter account! So, I created one online then promptly entered the IDs, passwords, URLs and such into my Treo 600 via CryptInfo and I am all set! Safe, secure and handy. CryptInfo is indispensable.

I use it along with the purchased Desktop viewer to store the oodles of logins & passwords & have for all my internet, work, play locations. Great Stuff!

My favorite application is Agendus. Although I dislike Iambic as a company just as much as the next guy, I find that it is by far the best datebook/todo replacement for the Palm. Its list view is considerably more organized then its Datebk5/6 equivalent, and that's the view I use 99% of the time.

My Palm has programs for Office file editors and viewers, various multimedia players, calculators and datebooks, and the palm killer app: databases. I'm surprised though that no one above has mentioned Punch Time Clock Pro available at http://www.psync.com/. It is a great time management program that allows the use to manage several simultaneous projects.

It sure beats carrying giant folded paper maps (ever try to refold those things correctly?). A close second has to be Pocket Quicken, the app that freed me from my checkbook register.

jmasur @ 11/14/2006 8:49:05 PM # Q
Oldie but goodie: I've been using AvantGo since it launched. Turns a Palm device into the most convenient bathroom reading medium known to humankind.

Newie and outstanding: Google Maps for Mobile. Sure, the Treo could do mapping, directions, and phone/address lookups before, albeit less easily, elegantly, and quickly. But live traffic used to require PDAnet and a laptop. Woohoo!

And of course, let's not forget the basic suite of contacts, calendar, memos, tasks, and email.

Favorite App (and why):

Knowledgeman @ 11/14/2006 9:08:14 PM # Q
Without a doubt, my favorite application is SnapperMail.
As a free-lance salesman, I have to interface with a multitude of messaging apps (Outlook, Notes, Groupwise, etc.), and I need both POP and IMAP compatibility.

To-date, I have found nothing that delivers an easy-to-use, desktop email experience to the Palm platform like Snappermail. The ability to manage POP & IMAP, multiple accounts/folders, the ability to manage what stays on the server...nothing is easier to set up or use; yet, nothing is as powerful at the same time.

Add in its terrific support for the major document management suites (DocsToGo, QuickOffice, etc.), and you add the ability to download and manage MS Office and Adobe PDF document without any conversion.

Bottom line: If you know how to use email on your PC, and know how to use your Palm, SnapperMail will deliver a powerful messaging experience that melds the best of both platforms.

OnBoardC, of course!

cervezas @ 11/14/2006 9:17:55 PM # Q
Back in 2000 when I got my first Palm OS device (a Handspring Visor Platinum) one of the first things I wanted to do was write my own software for it. The discovery that there was a free Palm OS development environment that I could run right on my Visor was--and still is--one of the coolest things I've ever seen on a handheld computer. OnBoardC is actually a suite of tools developed by a company called Individeo, which included a C compiler and Palm project manager, an assembler/linker, a visual resource editor for creating graphical user interfaces, and a clever programming text editor that included advanced features like keyword completion, function bookmarks, and nice integration with the compiler. All the software runs directly on a Palm OS device, which was great for me because at the time I had a long commute on public transportation during which I had plenty of time to develop my first Palm applications. And hone my Graffiti skills! ;-)

I was lucky to be around when Individeo decided to donate the OnBoardC source code to the active user/developer community and I got the chance to help organize the first open source development on the project as well as make some contributions to the code. Which is to say I'm more than a little biased when I say OnBoardC is the best software ever written for the Palm OS. ;-) But I can't take any credit for its success, which has everything to do with the original genius of Roger Lawrence and Keithan Hayenga (now at PalmSource) and a great community of volunteer developers who came after me.

If you're a C developer, a whiz at Graffiti, and love the Palm OS, check out OnBoardC at http://onboardc.sourceforge.net/ It's a gas!

My favorite application for Palm

bc @ 11/14/2006 10:08:15 PM # Q
Since recently changing over to WinMob5 on an MDA I have to say I really miss quite a few apps from the Palm world like Passwords Plus, Avantgo, EReader, Handmark Solitaire, Versamail and SmartList To Go. I probably miss EReader the most, but, that's a difficult call. I simply don't use the MDA device as much as my previous Palm device, the TX. Garnett might be long on the tooth, but, the WinMob UI is just not as refined as the Palm OS UI. Just my two cents.

Too hard to choose

spg66 @ 11/14/2006 9:57:40 PM # Q
Wow! There are so many Apps I've had and enjoyed. Some were device/OS limited and cannot be used on my Treo 650 now. If I had to choose, it'd be a contest between the Apps I've had the longest and still use daily/regularly: Launcher III/X (since 9/2001); InWatch/InstallWatch (since 9/2001); Action Names/Agendus Pro (since 11/2001).

These three Apps have been stalwarts to me. InstallWatch has helped me keep my devices clean and running after countless demo App installs/uninstalls. LauncherX has been consistently reliable and handy - pioneering many features in the 3rd party launcher space. Agendus Pro allows me to keep myself better organized by enhancing the built-in PIM Apps to make them more functional and useful.

Apart from the three Apps above, I have found BackupMan to be a stellar App. It has saved me from data loss on countless occasions. Keylink is another good App for direct text entry into my device. Other cool/fun/useful Apps include: Minefield 1.0.2; Patience Revisited; Billiards 4.2; Google Maps; Butler; Graffiti Anywhere; and Directory Assistant.

The best part about the Palm OS is the variety of Apps available. If you have a Palm OS device/smartphone you can find an App to do just about anything you need.

Cheers!

My favorite application is Bluefish RX on my Treo 650. It enables me to track patient prescription information and medical condition easily. I have gone to use it exclusivly ,even while I am in my office. I have a list of all the medications I have prescribed for over a year so when I speak to patients on the weekend I don't have to log into my office system to get basic info, just look at the phone I am speaking on and conviently review, or prescribe them medications. I don't ever worry about a patient getting the wrong prescription due to a pharmacist not being able to read my handwriting. For me this software has been a solution for several headaches and has enabled me to improve the quality of care for my patients.

I have been using agendus for a long time and have owned many palm handheld starting from the palm IIIc. Now I own the treo 700p from sprint and totally love it. Agendus is a nice program because it uses icons and an array of colors to differentiate between categories. The icons are neat because after awhile opening agendus monthly view and seeing the icons you automatically know where and what they represent. I love this program among others I have and will be glad to have another Treo so I can teach my wife how to use it :-)

PDACraze @ 11/15/2006 10:24:04 AM # Q
Thereís only one app that I absolutely need and loveÖ

ClearSync
csCalendars
www.clearsync.com

Iím a business owner and without this app my business would be much harder to run. The application is csCalendars by ClearSync. This application has made my life so easy and I will explain why.

csCalendars gives you the ability to create calendars on your handheld in addition to the native palm calendar. It allows you to sync those calendars to the clearsync server online so that all your calendar events are uploaded and backed up. Thatís not the good part. The great thing about this is app is that other people can sync to the very same calendar wirelessy!

As a business owner of a carpet cleaning company, I schedule jobs everyday and I schedule them using clearsync. The beautiful thing about this is that I can upload my calendar events and my business partner and employees can get these events by simply performing a wireless sync from their Treo.

Itís simple: I schedule jobs (events) in my csCalendar. I wirelessly sync my csCalendar to the ClearSync server. My business partner and employees perform a wireless sync from their Treo to my calendar online, bingo they have the jobs scheduled for that day or week.

When you perform a wireless sync to the ClearSync server you can do it for that day, week, or month.

This application is a time saver for my business. No paper calendar anymore. I field calls and simply schedule them on my phone and then sync to the server.

GREAT APPLICATION AND I COULDNíT LIVE WITHOUT IT AND I HAVE A TON OF APPS ON MY TREO 700P.

I'd have to vote for Docs to Go. Perhaps it's not as splashy or 'fun' as other apps. But I find I use it daily in working with Word and Excel documents. Gives me ready ability to stay up-to-date and synch'd with the stuff on my PC, without almost no thought given to it. Interestingly, for a period of time when I tried to use a PocketPC (Dell Axim x50v with WM2003) and even though the OS was a Windows variant, I never got the sanme degree of safety and compatibility with Office software as I do with PalmOS and DTG!

First, thank you Ryan and the rest of the group for creating and maintaining this site. I am not a frequent contributor, but surf over here at least once a day to check the news and comments.

My favorite application is the MyBible Daily Reader. Our youngest daughter went through a period of time when she wouldn't fall asleep at night unless I sat in her room with her, with the lights off of course. I began running the Daily Reader on my Palm IIIc and used the "down time" to read through the Bible in a year. Now, five years and four handhelds later, our daughter falls asleep by herself, but I have been through the Bible nearly five times and have kept going.

My favorite Palm application

Rick© @ 11/15/2006 1:37:12 PM # Q
After more than 10 years using Palm devices and trying hundreds of applications, I have to say categorically it is DateBk6.
I first started using the version that was built into the Handspring Visor Prism. When I got rid of that PDA, I missed the application and I purchased DateBK4. I have since upgraded through version 5 and just recently version 6.
My favorite features about it are: It keeps my Outlook calendar synched flawlessly at work and at home. The ability to customize the look by category and using icons is great as well as the views. Having an integrated ToDo view is great, and being able to link events to addresses, keep notes is awesome. But the top feature I like is the ability to manage time zones on appointments and calendars flawlessly! I travel a lot with my job all over the place (especially the far east), and with jet-lag my PDA and this application have kept me on track for many, many years.

My favorite program is Griffin's 5 minute clinical consult. I have used it on daily basis for the past year to help recall what drug's to use for specific diseases and what basic test to order. It is simple to use and very consise. When pimped by the residents or attendings I quickly find the answer's before the other students because of this program. It's just too bad I can't use it on my board exams!

My favorite Palm application has to be the TCPMP player for playing movie files. It's simple, free, and, with a hi-res landscape screen, will play AVI and MPEG files that look good a clean; what better way to spend some free time than watch movies on your Palm?

Tough call. I spend scads of time using Plucker and Pilot-DB, but I'm going with HandyShopper. It's useful for way more than shopping lists - I use it as a replacement for the built-in TODO app and keep track of family gift lists, required training classes at work, DVD's I'm planning to rent or buy, packing lists for trips, and lots of other things. It's also got an unbeatable price (free)!

Favorite App - Treo 700p Giveaway

sec55 @ 11/15/2006 5:09:56 PM # Q
My favorite Palm app would probably be AvantGo. You have hundreds of channels to choose from in many subject areas, and you can create your own custom pages, like I have with DealMac. I do a lot of reading of my favorite web sites in AvantGo. You can even get maps with MapQuest.

So, please enter me in the contest. I dropped my 650 and the screen is cracked, so I could use a new 700p!

Hobbyist Software - Butler, Phone Technician, Pref Doctor & Genius - essentially give nearly everything that Palm missed out of the base OS.

PDANet & PDAReach make the Treo even more useful and when all of these are managed with a good launcher - I use LauncherX - The Treo is finally ready for primetime.

Treo is now set for users favourite apps, games & utilities that users love (e.g. Avantgo, Worldmate, TCPMP, MobiTV, pTunes, Docs To Go etc)

For good measure a custom ROM helps too.

The Core Pocket Media Player is my favorite Palm OS app for several different reasons. First of all, it's freeware, and you can't beat free with a stick. Second of all, it's incredibly rugged with support for many different media formats. Finally, it does an excellent job playing videos on my sluggish E2.

I would consider my Treo a paper weight without it! GoodLink is a great push email system that mimmicks all the features of Outlook. But I understand not every Treo user is in a business that will foot the bill for this. So, my runner up is the new Google Maps app for the Treo.

My favorite Palm Application would have to be:

Avantgo

simply because I use it everyday. Avantgo is not perfect by a long shot, I'm a Zodiac 2 user who wishes Avantgo would work widescreen in both Portrait and Landscape (hello Avantgo R&D) modes, which at present it does not.

Nonetheless, Avantgo greatest fame is it's ability to sync news updates (like palminfocenter.com) and allow users to view these updates while sitting in traffic and waiting in the doctors office.

It also supports remote updates and synchronization via WIFI and can also serve as a quick Web Browser in a pinch.

Avantgo Rocks!

good bye phone book! My favorite app is directory assistant by Rick Whitt. Every week I use it... for finding stores phone numbers, reverse lookup for phone numbers, people, directions... it's great. There are other cooler apps, but this is soooo practical I love it. Google Maps is now getting close to bumping DA from top slot, and if they add bluetooth GPS compatability to google maps on my 700p, that might take the first place prize... downloading maps on the fly so no need to pre-load maps.

Each entry is logged by Time, date and categorized by color code. Each entry can be exported to the memo pad if need be. I usually Just print a copy from the desktop application. Everything is password protected to ensure privacy.

My most used application is my launcher, Initiate. I have it set up for the purist power-user, and I am still getting used to not using any other applications to start a call, sms, or email, but I find the application wonderful for integrating everything into one interface.

Close behind Initiate are Genius and DA. I use both of these applications several times a day. And when I buy my next device, it might be my comfort with these programs that keeps my with the Palm OS over anything else.

Completely reliable, unlike Documents to Go, a complete nightmare in comparison.

I'm a sucker for a good freeware app, and my favourite still has to be Filez.

The control it gives me over the files on my Palm is wonderful. It's been a mainstay on my handheld since it's release, and it's saved me a lot of work many times, deleting rogue files and saving time having to restore from a backup.

It is still the best app I've seen, hands down.

Finding my way through the universe with my Treo

As I wandered through the Moroccan desert, my bewildered companions and I lost our way. However, I reached for my trusty Treo and pulled up the PLANETARIUM program from AHo software, which until that time had been for my amusement only. I was able to orient my location with the moon and stars overhead and studying the several Palm screens in the program (time, horizon, direction, azimuth, and constellations all available in this terrific software.) We managed to make it to the little village we were seeking, and did not have to wander aimlessly in the wrong direction. I have many favorite Palm programs, but my Planetarium may have saved my life!

I'm sure that many Palm users will cite products by Motion Apps, but I would be remiss not to give praise to mOcean. It has helped me on the go, on the job and relaxing at the pool or gym, giving me the iPod Nano that I never wanted to invest money in. With a $20 piece of software and a 2 GB SD card, my Treo 650 suddenly became an iPod! And what a great GUI for the software; you'd believe that it was an Apple-built program with the scrolling wheel and all. It syncs cleanly with iTunes, better than I would have expected, and I couldn't be happier.

Well, I have to sy that if 'my favorite' Palm app is the most useful, then it would have to be good old Find Hack. Retrieving info is the thing that makes it worth whild.

Followed by a close second of TextPlus (why the Treo needs to be released full screen without the keyboiard).

I also like SplashShopper.

There are a number of great medical texts for it as well. They are fairly flexible together and I use it everyday. Also, it less than $20 to register.
Following closely behind would be, in no particular order: TCPMP, AvantGo, MobiPocket Reader and ePocrates. As you can tell my favs are either free or very low cost. Gotta love it.

I didn't actually set out looking for a "today" screen, but merely for something that would show a clock with the keyguard, like I used to use PopClock Hack for a couple OS versions ago.

I found KGT+, and decided to try using it to show a list of upcoming appointments, however, and quickly realized what a benefit it was. While with other "today" screens, like the one in the newest version of DateBk, I have to actively check that program to be reminded of what's coming up, I'm now presented with a list every time I turn my Treo on, without worrying about what program I'm in.

If I need to check the time or upcoming appointments while I'm using another program, I just hold down my calendar button, and up pops KGT+ with the clock and appointment list again.

I've definitely remembered a couple of bills I'd otherwise have forgotten about thanks to KGT+, and as freeware, the price can't be beat!

The App I Would Love to Hate

mypos @ 11/19/2006 12:53:03 AM # Q
#1 App = Documents2Go. Wonderful piece of ... It lets me see and work on bona fide Office files on the go, but ...

(1) Is it too much to ask for multiple file selection capability?
(2) Do I have to beg for Type3 fonts so I can see equations?
(3) O, my Access files, wherefore art thou, my Access files?
(4) How about starting each file with "D2G_" prefix guys :~(
(5) You knew the job was dangerous when you took it, Fred.

#2 App = PDAStats. But you didn't ask for this?

Thanks for opportunity.

Destaller Pro. Head over heels for the Palm OS system. Download tons of new stuff each week. This helps me rid whole programs & keeps my Treo memory clean. Been giving lessons to my friends who all now want to own a Treo. I Love This Phone !!! Thanks Palm.

Favorite App: Keyoe's Diet & Exercise Assistant

BLR @ 11/19/2006 12:59:25 PM # Q
This is easily the best weight loss tool for Palm users -- it's attractive with a basic yet appealing color scheme, allows you to track your daily food intake and activity levels, but the best part of the assistant is its MASSIVE database of foods to choose from. This has not only made it easy to keep track of what I'm doing daily, but it has made choicemaking when eating out far less of a headache (and less of a surprise).

Keyoe's DEA is truly an example of the potential for variety and utility in palm software.

Favorite App - DA Launcher

buckeyetex315-2 @ 11/20/2006 1:48:18 PM # Q
DA Launcher by Simple-Palm (Hacker Dude-san) is my favorite app since it adds much needed versatility to the Palm OS. Best of all - it's free!

(The PopUp apps by Benc Software would have been a close second, but they don't work on my TX).

Runner-ups (or is that runners-up? :-D):
- TurboPasswords - Chapura
- VehicleLog - Little Wing Software (no longer in biz?)
+ version 1.0 still works flawlessly on my TX
- BigClock - Jens Rupp (best all around timer / stopwatch / alarm app!)
- MySkin - Alexander Pruss
- Proj@Hand - Natara Software (project management -> MS Project)
- Vexed - Vexed SourceForge Project
- AvantGo - iAnywhere Solutions
- KeySuite - Chapura

The best "Palm" app that doesn't actually reside on the Palm, but on your desktop?
NotSync - Ultrasoft


Ryan - Thanks for maintaining this great site for all of us Palm OS diehards....

Favorite App and Why

theseus @ 11/21/2006 1:01:29 PM # Q
I use many apps on my T3, and all to varying degrees. And most all of the apps I use are installed because they help accomplish whatever it is they're intended for. For instance, if I want to write on my screen like a note pad, I use DiddleBug. It's good at that. It also allows me to create quick reminders. If I want to look up someone in my Contacts list, PhoneMagic is the app I go to. I use MyBible when it's time for devotionals or just for daily reading of the Bible. Bonsai is a good hierarchical list app -- so Christmas gift lists and trip inventories get put in there. Vindigo is a great app for checking on Movie times or for a quick map to a store with address and phone number. FileZ is a terrific File Manager; wouldn't want to do any fine-tuning of my PDA's files without it. TikTok is a great timing app. CityTime helps manage my TimeZones when I travel (and I like the daylight/nighttime "twilight" area it overlays on the map of the US/world). IconMgr (by Chris Antos) is _the_ de facto icon editor for Palm OS. (His CaseToggle and Colorize apps are also top notch.) Parens is my calculator of choice. 4Cast shows me what to expect in terms of weather. BDicty is a great dictionary app that has settled a few debates from time to time. ;) I have a collection of movies -- and just an overall "interest" in movies -- and would be lost without VideoHound (and REX, the expanded library). It has also settled some disagreements, but is also great for answering trivia questions. PsMemo is my choice of Memo apps -- it's simple, has a ton of features and is free. TimeSheet is how I track my hours at work -- from the minute I clock in to the minute I clock out, it's there keeping track of what I'm doing. An app I use all the time (but never think about) is ZLauncher. It's there when I need it and is unobtrusive; a quiet workhorse that I couldn't do without.

Still, while all of the above apps are leaders for the type of apps they represent, my "favorite" app -- overall -- is DateBk (currently DateBk6). Not only is it a terrific schedule-master, the [sole individual] developer is very responsive to user-requests -- be they for support or improvement. He's an extremely talented programmer. Also, there's a terrific user-community that's available for people who have questions/problems. It is an _extremely_ rare day when I don't do SOMEthing related to DateBk. Even if/when I'm sick, I go into DateBk to run my "Sick -- don't bother me with alarms" Saved View. I have a similar one for when I'm on vacation. Saved Views that show me what my work-week is like and some that hide those work-related things on the weekend so I'm not bothered by alarms when I don't want them. DateBk not only helps me stay organized, it helps me look good. I'll stop into someone's office after I get a reminding for a meeting and they've completely forgotten about it. Or if someone's needing equipment set up for a presentation or a video-conference, I'm there setting it up before they get there; that almost always is appreciated, even if it doesn't impress.

While it may be that any "electronic calendar" app/device can do the same, it's actually DateBk that makes it "fun" managing my schedule. And the fact that I use it daily makes it one of the most -- if not THE most -- used apps on my device. It's functional, it's efficient, it's extremely customizable and it's fun. And the user-community provides insights -- to the app itself as well as other things -- and gives additional function and support to the already outstanding app. That's why DateBk[6] is my "favorite" app.

I want the new Palm Treo!

Sartre @ 11/21/2006 2:57:45 PM # Q
So, for years AvantGo was the application for me (Palm V, Clie, T3). Then I got the Treo 650, and found I wasn't as interested in AvantGo.

Back then, AeroPlayer was also a strong contender.

But with a new job, my handheld became less of a Palm and more of a phone.

As a phone, my favorite application would have to be either Ringo Pro or ZLauncher... let's see... okay... I'll go with ZLauncher. I find it's configurability and options make using my Treo (and all the other handhelds before it) so much easier and better. Lot of set-up, but well worth it.

How my favorite Palm OS application saved me time

itsfate @ 11/26/2006 12:01:23 AM # Q
As a Full Time College Student and Executive Assitant to a Fashion Designer, there are infinite things I need to remember. I have essays to write for my Lectures, term papers due, Business Meetings to attend, Fashion Shows to plan/produce, and new Business Relationships to form---aside from my own personal life. With so many items on my agenda, the DateBk 5/Journal Application suits my needs best.
It is an instant convienent reference for me to use when I don't have time to fumble through a messy unorganized paper organizer or look relentlessly for a pen that works or a pencil that is sharpened to write things down. Thus, it allows me to manage my time more effectively and efficiently. An extra perk is that the Palm and an IR keyboard can accompany me to meetings and Lectures and provide versatility for home use as well. The week-at-a-glance view is flawless to me because it allows me to see my entire week sorted out and provides me with an organized approach as to how my week is progressing.
This application has saved me time and gives me more time to do other things. Time is no longer the enemy with this application at my finger-tips!!
