    Sounds complicated, but surprisingly simple once it's set up.
    Darn! Got excited when I heard OWA was available for Chatter. Unfortunately, it won't work with our login procedure.

    What's wrong with the built-in financial calculator? It does these calculations very easily.

    It's a nice idea, but not real practical. I hate thinking about the amount of missed calls I'd have, and the massive battery drain of using the web for everything. As it stands now, I have over 9 free megs of RAM(and a bunch of apps on my card), and other than Verichat(still looking for a good IM alternative), my Treo is very stable.
    And now 4Cast and Chatter are gone again. Chatter was just monopolizing my Treo too much. It wouldn't turn on right away if Chatter was checking email, wouldn't turn off, took freaking forever to switch between applications if I was running Chatter, PocketTunes and anything else concurrently (which I always am).

    Back to links for m.gmail.com and mobile.wunderground.com.

    Much better. My Treo is much more stable and so much more responsive.

    Simply due to the fact that I don't know how to use the financial calculator or any formulas for it. The manual is useless at best for instructions on how to use it. Using the Sharklink, it only takes 20 seconds to figure out how much a payment would be on a loan.

    speaking of space hogs, do you guys keep ibm java installed? do you find it is worth the space it takes up, in order to view java sites?( such as audible.com)

    Java != JavaScript. Having IBM Java installed does not allow you to view any websites that require Java.

    The IBM Java is for programs like Opera, KMaps, etc.

    Hey Jeff:

    Unless I missed it in this thread, have you or anybody else found a good
    TV listing guide online that can be used with SharkLinks?

    thanks, i did not realize that.
    although it seemed like i was able to visit audible.com now and i was not before having ibm java installed, but it was probably another blazer issue.

    Fortunately, i can now be rid of ibm java as i found mini opera too unstable

    thanks

    Hi Jeff,

    That's a cool concept of using weblinks instead of apps to save space. But what about email attachments? I'm guessing you must not do much in way of sending and receiving attachments by email through your Treo. For me, I'm an attachment junkie, so I will always need an email application to do attachments. You probably use a desktop computer for your attachments I'm guessing.

    Wow, I just installed SharkLink, and this works great! I created a standalone icon for going to my Gmail account, and even assigned a Quick Key in my Phone app which works well too.

    SharkLink offers a better method of quickly accessing your favorite website(s) without having to first click on Web, and then BookMarks, as I would normally do.

    Very cool !! Thanks for the link!

    Gmail can view attachments as HTML, but not send from mobile.

    No TV Guide that I found. But I watch very little TV and even then only prerecorded stuff on my DVR.

    For a web-enabled TV Guide page I use http://wireless.tvguide.com. Just put in your ZIP code and select your cable or satellite option... works like a charm.

    Great article Jeff.

    Sharklinks is still another app you have to load on your Treo taking up memory space. The popular free bookmark site http://del.icio.us just finished putting up their mobile version at http://mobilicio.us and is truley 'web enabled'

    I use this site almost exclusively now. The wonder of mobilicio.us is that all of the links you bookmark (and tagged as 'mtag' in your Del.icio.us account) are automatically pushed through the Google wireless proxy that Jeff includes in his links. You'll have to tag any Del.icio.us links already mobilized with 'mtag-g' to prevent them from going through the Google proxy and screwing with their layout.

    It's fast and a great way to keep and store your links online.

    Thanks for the great tips Jeff. Well I won't use Shark links, am just happy to use the Web link shortcuts from the Treo's Phone App.....

    I like the idea of online apps vs Palm apps. I do many of these. I like some of the suggestions made in this thread. Thanks Jeff et al.

    Decisions need to be made.

    If you travel, you need to consider NON-on-line resources. Gmail is great to access if you have a connection as mentioned, but at 33,000 ft- you really need an off-line solution such as ChatterEmail.

    Likewise, many of the other apps need to be considered in the context of an always on-line connection. Some will work- some not. I use QuickNews because I can sync the latest news and then disconnect, get on a plane and 'read' the news.

    Also, I'd like to say that Sharklinks is great for static bookmarks to URL's. But it fails for dynamic sites- Genius! by www.hobbyistsoftware.com is great for this. I can create a direct link to a URL that will prompt me for dynamic info before executing. Perfect. Think- static weather URL with a predefined zip code everytime vs the same URL accessed each time by prompting for the zip code that you are in when travelling. Static vs dynamic. There's a place for both on my Treo.

    Anyway, just my 2p.

    I have had Sharklinks for a few weeks and found I don't use them much either. Also, can't get the program to save the default to Opera Mini instead of Balzer either.

    Yeah, Opera's not supported.

    overall a great ideal, i like the ideal of having links instead of apps for certain situations,who needs dir assist,inoah,ipedia and 4cast when all this information can be accessed wirelessly without the need of using precious memory.......although i will admit some apps i just have to have availiable in RAM for extra functions that might be needed,or for the capability of offline use(as was stated earlier in this thread) such as snappermail,quicknews,infoman and kmaps because these can be updated then used later without wireless service always needed, definitely adds a new dimension to the usability of the phone now,thanks.
